The Wallawwa is an old colonial mansion which has been carefully restored to offer 17 beautifully furnished rooms, twelve garden suites, two bedrooms, two suites and family Wallawwa after the Mountbatten. Nestled in three acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, The Wallawwa is strategically located near Dambulla, Kandy and Galle, just 15 minutes from the only international airport in Sri Lanka and about 45/60 minutes from the bustle of central Colombo. Easily accessible and yet totally isolated, it is a charming refuge private. Much care and attention has been made to create a pleasant for customers and staff. The team of butlers, cooks, maids, gardeners, maintenance engineers and spa therapists all strive to maintain an atmosphere friendly and efficient, while ensuring service standards of the highest quality. Sinhala term "Walauwa" or "Wallawwa" is used to express both the Sinhalese concept of aristocracy and the physical location of the headquarters of a particular family Sinhalese who have good connections with local kings or colonial masters. The Wallawwa is by far the oldest house of its kind in the province, the proof goes back to the 18th century. More recently the property was occupied by the Royal Air Force, during the period 1939-1945, while Lord Mountbatten was the commander of the Southern Command-East Asia - which had its headquarters in Ceylon. This is the story of a peaceful and Wallawwa any person from the time the doors will discover here away from the bustle of the outside world. La Veranda offers an exquisite à la carte cuisine Asian, overlooking the beautiful gardens. Lunch menus were created using the freshest ingredients from Sri Lanka.
