Striking boutique hotel not far from Galle
Friendly and tranquil home surrounded by lush gardens with a large swimming pool for keeping cool
Arriving at Why House you'll be treated like long lost family rather than strangers, and will quickly feel right at home in this friendly family-orientated boutique hotel. Just 15 minutes from Galle, Why House offers elegant accommodation with a personal touch, and makes an ideal base for exploring the south coast. Perfect for both families and couples, the 10 double en-suite bedrooms each have private terraces, as well as satellite TVs with a DVD library.
The large outdoor pool is great for cooling down during the hot afternoons, and there's an entertainment and outside dining pavilion with views out over extensive and beautifully landscaped gardens. Guests can enjoy an authentic Ayurvedic massage in a separate garden pavilion, listening to the sounds of birds chirping all around. Food is a fusion of Sri Lankan, Western and Asian flavours, and private dining in a peaceful spot out in the gardens can be arranged for special occasions. Cooking classes are available where you'll learn how to rustle up that delicious curry you enjoyed the night before, under expert supervision from the chef. Why house is also well known for its cultural shows which give a fascinating insight into Sri Lankan culture, including dancers in traditional costumes and even fire breathers.
Dalawella Beach is just a 5 minute walk (or short tuk tuk ride) away from Why House, where you can swim in the stunning lagoon all year round. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle makes a great day trip, or perhaps you might fancy a guided cycle ride, visits to Buddhist temples or a session in the nearby Sri Yoga Shala Centre.
