Description: A sensational 2 room boutique hotel and restaurant in the south Gold Coast of Sri Lanka. WB is a private house but also the essential location for food and sun-seekers; it’s a secluded and stylish retreat just minutes from Galle where you can relax by the sea and indulge in delicious Italian cuisine accompanied by a good choice of wines. Chill out in tropical lounging pavilions, go for a dip in the beautiful coral lagoon and dry off on sun drenched loungers whilst enjoying the beautiful panorama of the ocean. The Italian owner’s classic architectural styling has been cleverly combined with monochrome interiors and luxurious furnishings that invite you to do no more than relax and imbibe.Indulge in a daily-changing menu that includes homemade choice of sauce for pastas, freshly baked "ciabatta" bread and plenty of fresh seafood. Items such as Italian antipasti and real Extra Virgin Olive Oil are specially imported from Italy for authenticity. Evening menus can always be pre-arranged whilst our scenic location makes WB the ideal place to host private parties that can be tailor-made to meet your individual desires and needs. You are welcome and as the coral lagoon offers safe and secluded swimming year-round it is a comfortably reassuring choice.

“A Fantastic find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Why Beach is hard to describe.Probably the best way is to say tt is a private house comprised of a number of different buildings. I understand its a private home and the Italian owners when not using the house let some of the rooms out.
But the best thing is if you book for lunch you can take advantage of their sunbeds.
This is a real benefit as its on a perfect beach.
But the real surprise is the food. The menus are developed, and if you are lucky enough cooked by one of the Italian owners mothers. And its Italian home cooking at its finest.]Why Beach is about a 15 minute drive along the coast from Galle Fort. It is a must visit
