Villa
Walatta House is one of the most unique villas on the south coast. The house is partially ‘submerged’ into a hillside that overlooks the Indian Ocean and offers a seamless junction between architecture and nature. It is a superb example of contemporary design. The imperative was to maximise interaction between the indoors and out, to create a sense of openness and space. Thus the landscape is used as an integral design element with an open sided living room offering stunning views across the infinity pool to the ocean, the beaches and the sky.

Courtyards and landscape penetrate the bedrooms and bathrooms, allowing maximum airflow and natural ventilation, and the heat absorbing grass roof also minimises the need for air conditioning - although all 3 bedrooms do have that option available. The rectangular infinity pools runs the length of the house, and the secluded beaches are just a few metres down the slope. There are 3 bedrooms - 2 doubles and 1 twin - all ensuite and with air con. The bathrooms are indoor / outdoor and have views onto the gardens. The kitchen and staff house is in a separate building adjacent to the main house.

Best vacation
We vacationed in this villa in August 2023. Our holiday was great. The food, the cleaning, our guide Suresh - everything was great. At the villa we had a personal chef who fulfilled all our wishes.

Paradise
Our stay at Walatta house was absolutely incredible. The house itself is stunning, unique architecture & beautiful views. The staff are all so kind and welcoming, Madura & team made our stay even better, with a special thanks to Madura’s cooking & for letting us shadow him in the kitchen so we can learn some tips and tricks to take home with us. Amazing food, hospitality, view and location - can’t hype it up enough!

Excellent villa
Our stay at Walatta was beyond excellent. We were looking for a quiet place to relax and we found exactly what we were looking for. The home was so spacious with a bathroom for every bedroom and extensive grounds. The food was exceptional and we appreciated the daily efforts of all the staff in looking after us so well. We loved the chef showing us how to cook various Sri Lankan dishes and making our 7 year olds birthday so special. The short walk to the beach gave us the opportunity to go for walks along the coast (not the right time of the year for swimming). We were looking for an amazing view and pool, away from the busyness of life and got just that. A short ride organised by the staff also meant we could go to surf school at an amazing beach nearby. We look forward to another visit in the future. Thanks so much!

One of the most beautiful villas in Sri Lanka
The moment you see it, you will know that this is one unique building with so much work and details has gone into every corner of the house. The view is beyond spectacular. You could also walk down a private beach area and swim in the ocean. The pool is incredibly long and I still dream about it! Staff were amazing, went all out to make sure we are attended to. Chef Naveen whipped out amazing Sri Lankan and Western cuisines. His BBQ sauce is the best I have ever had. The only downside would be dealing with the person who handles your booking online; Udheshika. She has poor customer service skills and kept giving us deadlines and messaging at odd hours too. Luckily she wasn’t there in person at the Villa, so the stay turned out to be a pleasant one.

Hi Many thanks for your review. So glad that you enjoyed the villa. Sorry that you felt Udeshika has poor service skills. She 100% does her best but sometimes, when booked services are cancelled, it is difficult balancing the wishes of guests with the financial demands of 3rd party suppliers. Wishing you very pleasant onward travels. best regards Jack

Piękne miejsce
Willa jest przestronna, wspaniale urządzona , z fantastycznym basen. Widok zapiera dech w piersiach. Bezpośrednie zejście na małą i dziką plażę dodaje miejscu uroku. Domem zarządza pan, który jednocześnie gotuje. Trzeba przyznać, ze robi to wspaniale ! Jedyny minus miejsca : cena za posiłki. W teorii miała być to tylko cena zakupionych produktów. W praktyce ceny jak na Sri lanke kosmiczne ( w niższych jadaliśmy w eleganckich restauracjach ). Kiedy próbowaliśmy to wytłumaczyć, uzyskaliśmy odpowiedź, ze moglismy pojechać na zakupy razem z szefem kuchni. Słabe zakończenie cudownego pobytu na przepięknej wyspie.

What a place!
We have just stayed for 3 weeks at Walatta and wanted to give feedback as requested in your guest information. The positives are many. The location and villa itself is wonderful. Occasional visiting wildlife add to the whole atmosphere and the living space is fabulous. The pool is a wonderful size too. Above all, the staff team cannot be praised enough. They are discreet and beyond helpful and the food Madura has produced is first class. It is quite literally fine dining at every meal. We thoroughly recommend The Walatta House and will certainly revisit.

The perfect holiday - We cannot wait to return
We rented Walatta House in January 2023 with 5 friends. We were absolutely blown away when we arrived. The house is simply stunning. The layout, the views, the incredible pool, the deserted beach at the end of the garden, which is stunning, all made for the perfect stay. The thing however that makes this house so special are the staff. Madura (manager and amazing chef) Suranga and Binash went above and beyond to make our stay incredible; they were so good, attentive but discreet at the same time. Nothing was a problem for them. We were so impressed by the service we received. What a team they have there. .....And what a great manager and chef Madura is - truly ...Wow! His food was just delicious. He was accommodating with every meal, and took such pride in what he prepared and delight in seeing the guests so happy. He is truly a very special person. We were very sad when we left Walatta house (there were actual tears). But our hearts were full of love and gratitude after such an amazing stay. I would also like to thank Jack Eden and Udeshika from Eden Villas for making everything so easy to organise prior to our arrival. Sri Lanka blew us away - The people, the food, how easy everything was. I know some will have reservations still about travelling there, but no one should worry. It is a country so stunning, and welcoming and safe that we would highly recommend people to go. We cannot wait to return.

Einmaliger Ort, beispielgebender Service
Wenn man einen unvergleichlichen Urlaub erleben möchte, bucht man das Walatta House. Perfekt am Ozean gelegen, erfüllt es alle Wünsche und noch viel mehr. Ein persönlicheres und privateres Ambiente wird man wohl nirgendwo bekommen. Das Grundstück ist riesig und man kann an mehreren Stellen entspannen und die Seele baumeln lassen. Der große Pool ist ein absolutes Highlight, die Architektur des Hauses sowieso. Das Besondere ist der beispielgebende Service. Madura mit seinem Team erfüllt praktisch jeden Wunsch von Essen über Safari-Orga bis hin zur Musikern, die am Abend ins Haus kommen. Das Team ist immer da und hilft, aber immer diskret. Man hat die Intimität eines privaten Ferienhauses kombiniert mit dem Service eines hochklassigen Hotels. Man kann entspannen, die Natur genießen und Tiere beobachten (regelmäßig kommt ein prächtiger Pfau vorbei, was man so auch nur selten erlebt), alles an einem Ort. Das Grundstück liegt versteckt in absolut ruhiger Lage und eignet sich vor allem für Familien hervorragend.

The most perfect stay in Sri Lanka
I can't rave about this place more highly. I'm torn between telling everyone about it and keeping it a secret to keep all to myself. The house itself is gorgeous. A truly unique design which makes you feel as if you are in the most gorgeous James Bond bunker ever. The villa is comfortable and has all the amenities and comforts you could ever need - Wifi, hairdryers, aircon etc. The pool is huge and perfect, and the short walk down to the beach takes you to your own private beach paradise which comes with rockpools to explore for hours, and a gorgeous little beach bar and swing which you have all to yourself. The true shining star of this place however is by far the staff who stop at nothing to make your stay perfect. The team go out of their way to make sure they have everything you want - they'll arrange massages, go pick up supplies from stores. They are amazing. The food especially is out of this world - Madhura is a Michelin star worthy chef hiding in a little beach town here. We have 2 small kids who usually live on a diet of nuggets and spaghetti, but with his cooking every single meal came up with empty plates and usually with second plates as well. Every meal was more delicious than the rest. Thank you Walatta team!
