After a long journey from Australia I arrived in the middle of night and stayed in this oasis near Colombo Airport. First impressions were great. I felt welcome immediately. My Garden Suite was spacious and comfortable, with a huge bathroom and a superbly comfortable bed. I awoke the next day to a beautiful property and a relaxed warm atmosphere. Beautiful serene grounds and excellent service. I had a wonderful breakfast of traditional hoppers then enjoyed the beautify gardens and library, as well as a delicious lunch until my pick up at noon to take me to Galle. I could have easily spent a few nights here, it really is a beautiful property. I highly recommend The Wallawwa as a destination in it's own right for a visit to Colombo or an in-between before your adventures in Sri Lanka.

We booked this hotel based on the reviews and we weren't disappointed. Totally laid back and chilled, wonderful (if a little spicy) food for dinner and superb Garden Room, although beware the mosquitos which are plentiful.
The gardens are immaculate, there is a zen feel to the place, wish we had stayed two nights instead of having to rush out the next morning.
Staff were brilliant, we had breakfast very, very early and then transported to the airport, a mere 20 minutes away, no worries.

Room tip: Garden rooms are lovely and roomy, massive bathrooms, like a giant wetroom

We stayed 3 nights before embarking on our tour of Sri Lanka. Immediately you came through the gate from the bustle outside it was different, tranquil & peaceful. The gardens were lovely, the food excellent and the staff very attentive. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We stayed on our first and last night in Sri Lanka and for somewhere so close to the airport it was ideal. Generally the food quality was very good, as long as you chose right. We stayed the first night in room 1 which was OK but our last night was in room 19, which was much better, although either room was spacious with a cavernous bathroom. Unfortunately our last night was independence day and the hotel was unable to serve alchohol, which was very dissapointing, prior warning would have been useful especially when you are looking forward to a cold beer after a long journey.

We stayed here for one night before flying out of Colombo, and wished we had an extra day to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Although only 15 mins from the airport, it is not under the flight path, and we found our whole stay very restful. The whole atmosphere is very quiet and calming. The service is excellent - when told that we had an early departure, the staff started breakfast half and hour earlier for our benefit. The rooms are very comfortable, and the food was very good too - we hope to be back!
