Prepare to be bewitched and astonished by the energy, the pace, the noise and the dizzying traffic of Colombo’s streets. Then, for the hell of it, try turning the volume up past 10, by wandering into the main market. The word pandemonium simply isn’t strong enough.
But make The Wallawwa part of your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Sri Lanka and you’ll be able to experience it all – and then retire into a world of peace, cool interiors, an inviting swimming pool and quietly spoken, obliging staff. It may be minutes from the airport, and within easy reach of Sri Lanka’s largest city, but this boutique hotel has more in common with the serenity of a temple, echo-ing the gently welcoming nature of the local people.
