“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Talk about a getaway. Work stress was quickly forgotten in this rustic yet luxurious villa. It was like survivor, with benefits. Diving into the pool or taking walks on the beach whenever we felt like it, in between excellent meals cooked by the staff. The breeze was amazing and while some of my friends enjoyed sleeping with just the natural wind, I was grateful for the air-conditioner in the bedroom (creature of habit).

Getting a chance to take the sea plane was an added bonus as well as the lovely gem shop down the road!

“Brilliant Property, Great Service, Fab Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2012

Phenomenal place. Loved the open concept. Made you feel outdoors even when you were indoors. The view was unbelievable. We were lucky to be there on a full moon night; and the view was just breathtaking. Really helpful staff members, who served up some wicked curry.

“luxury in paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in December 2012

One of the most remarkable and relaxing holidays of any we've done anywhere in the world. Pure luxury in paradise. Walatta's hidden away on it's own hillside and just down the slope from that gorgeous pool are the most wonderful beaches and rock pools. The way the accommodation is set up makes you feel like part of the environment, and there's nothing more relaxing. It's brand new and designed to the highest specs, as if it were part of the natural landscape. The rainforest showers are a treat and the bedrooms designed so you can hear the sound of rolling surf all night long. Oh and the food! my goodness. Lobsters and fresh fish caught daily with locally grown organic produce in curries to die for, all home cooked by the wonderful staff. Breakfast, lunch and dinner!!! And if that's not enough, the gardener will shimmy up the trees each morning for your fresh coconut juice. It's on such a large block you will truly feel as though you are hidden away from the rest of the world. Once you get there you won't want to leave, but just in case you do there's the bustling town of Tangalle just down the road by Tuk-Tuk, plenty of facilities for all your needs, or you can pop along the coast in the other direction to see the whales. Then there's a day trip to the Elephant safari at Udawalawee. Or you can overnight up in the tea country. All taken care of by the careful staff and their drivers. You'll want to come back to Walatta. We are planning our next trip… Pure luxury in paradise!

“Magique!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago for a stay in November 2014
Google Translation

Pourquoi magique, et bien cet adjectif s'applique aussi bien à la maison qu'à l'environnement, à l'accueil du staff, à la gentillesse des habitants ......La maison est conforme aux photos, une architecture originale qui fait que même à l'intérieur vous êtes à l'extérieur, une végétation et une vue à couper le souffle. Le personnel est aux petits soins pour vous à tous moments de la journée, Shahan grimpe aux cocotiers pour satisfaire nos envies de jus de coco! Alvis nous concocte de succulents repas avec la pêche du jour ou les produits du marché achetés ensemble le matin. Sans oublier Sourangan et son joli sourire du matin au petit déjeuner et Wallis le chien! Si fallait citer un petit point négatif, nous dirions qu'une chaine française style TV 5 monde pourrait compléter ce petit coin de paradis.
