            I have lived and worked in Sti Lanka for 4 years. I have seen most of the country as a local seaplane pilot. I have not however, seen a better hotel. Beautiful, peaceful and classy. The Balinese masseuse is amazing. Food quality is excellent. We will be back again.

Lovely spa with well priced treatments. Overall we loved our stay of two nights in the family room. Beautiful place to relax, unwind, enjoy!

            Spectacular! Cannot wait to return!”

            We stayed one night at The Wallawwa on our return from a beach side stay near Galle, as it was close to the airport & allowed us to bypass Colombo. Needless to the say, we had an absolutely wonderful stay and wish we had spent more time at this hotel. A beautiful sprawl of quiet gardens, impressive heritage buildings, superb food and a tranquil setting. This was matched by spacious, comfortable and well-maintained rooms and attentive staff. An additional bed and cot for the children was no fuss and easily accommodated both staff and the room size. Thank you to the staff and we look forward to seeing you again.

            We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our 2 week stay in Sri Lanka. It was expensive but worth it. It is a small boutique hotel where you feel more like guests than clients, 20 minuets from the airport.

            A beautiful property near the airport. Airport transfer was efficient and comfortable. The arrival experience was acceptable and the room is large and comfortable. Beauitful open air bathroom and comfortable bed. Wifi was quite weak at some spots. The food was nothing extraordinary and service was simply average only.The Spa was excellent but the aircond in the SPA is very loud hence the Spa experience is compromised.The breakfast option is average. Could be better for the price we are paying. I must say the hotel grounds are pretty and cosy. Could see the ageing but needs some more maintenance.

            For an overnight stay it was lovely.. Convenient to the airport. The rooms and bathrooms are a little tired. Furnishings have stains, bathrooms are a little musty smelling from stale water and mould in the timber bathroom Areas but the staff could not be more delightful and the food was terrific.

            The Wallawwa Hotel is quite lovely, with a great garden area and good food. However, it has high tension power lines almost directly overhead the guest rooms. I certainly would not have booked here had I known. In most countries, building in such a position would not be allowed. If this is not a problem for you, then the hotel is a very comfortable stop near the airport.
