Villas and Residences

All eighteen bedrooms and suites gracefully blend the character of an 18th century manor house with bold contemporary additions. Super soft linen dresses four-poster beds positioned to gaze into the gardens, and little details such as vintage phones and bold prints infuse rooms with a retro-contemporary vibe. Relax in peace and privacy in one of our tastefully designed Wallawwa Bedrooms or choose a more spacious Garden Suite for their large bathrooms and open terraces beside lush border-fringed lawns. Families can take advantage of the interconnecting bedrooms and suites, and our ultimate extravagance is the two – bedroom Mountbatten Suite with private plunge pool.

Food & Beverage

The Verandah, serves exquisite a la carte Asian Fusion cuisine throughout the day to tables overlooking the 200-year-old tropical gardens. Their innovative menus use the finest local ingredients, and many of the fruits, vegetables and herbs used in freshly cooked meals are plucked daily from their extensive kitchen garden. The resident chefs cater to all dietary requirements with prior notice, and a kid’s menu, BBQ menu and in-room dining menu are also available. A selection of fine wines, cocktails, spirits and beers perfectly complement every menus.


Tranquility reigns at The Wallawwa, and the Z Spa captures the peaceful mood by pampering guests with luxurious and restful treatments. Their therapies have been conceived with real people in mind and are designed specifically to aid in pre- and post-flight rest and relaxation – be indulged within 20-minutes of stepping out of Colombo International Airport. The Z Spa has both single and double air-conditioned treatment rooms with open-air bathrooms, all of which radiate from a Zen-like central courtyard. The spa has no set opening hours; our therapists plan treatments to fit each guest’s schedule.


The Wallawwa is conveniently located not only for Colombo Airport but also for seeing Colombo’s shops and sights, and exploring the busy fishing town of Negombo.

Property Highlights

It might be near the airport but this is no airport hotel – the tropical grounds are spacious, tranquil and relaxing.

A wonderful colonial-era retreat. It is just 30 minutes away from the Airport. Excellent to either start or finish your trip with a couple of nights. The rooms and property as a whole are absolutely beautiful. It is like a peaceful little garden sanctuary. Excellent food and staff.
