Amazing architecture, beautiful pool, incredible food. Thank you so much to Madura, Suranga and team for a great end to our Sri Lanka holiday.
The house is absolutely lovely. Well kept and ideal for a few couples or small family. A short walk down the grounds leads you to a beach. Small but not crowded. Most of the time we were the only people at the beach. The chef will cook all your meals for you and you pay for the ingredients. The two young men working with the chef will spoil you rotten, from bringing you tea to lighting candles in the evenings to setting the table with a different napkin folding every evening! Tuk tuk driver also has a 7 seater vehicle that you can book. If you want to book any excursions, e.g. whale watching, fishing etc, ask the driver. He has some good contacts. Wally the dog is amazing. I am petrified of dogs and always avoid them, but Wally was so tame that I actually ended up patting her many times. Children will love Wally. Overall a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.
We stayed at Walatta House for 2 weeks just before Christmas 2014. Our family group was made up of all ages and everyone loved the place. My husband and I, our 3 children aged 8, 4 and 1, 1 set of grandparents, and a 25 year old niece were all superbly looked after by the ever helpful Suranga and staff. The food Alwis cooked was just delicious (why eat elsewhere?) Jack's office arranged for a lovely lady called Kusum to come and help look after the baby (I thoroughly recommend her for anyone who wants help with their children) her English is excellent, she arrived punctually with a smile every day and looked after the baby better than I can. When our middle son fell ill Kusum whisked us off to the local hospital and helped us to see the right doctor and generally made life much easier. Pirantha - the most amazing Ayurvedic masseur came to us EVERY day - he is fabulous - you must have a treatment - it's very ayuvedic no thrills but you can feel yourself healing over the days. Now the house - it's beautiful it has been built with style and panache and has the exact right balance between eco and luxury. We loved the frogs and birds in the pool, the stunning butterflies, the enormous water monitors, the unceasing crowd of emerald beetles in the evenings. The planting is beautiful you really feel as if you are in a tropical jungle. Anyhows enough - it is wonderful here we cannot rate it more highly. Haven't even mentioned beautiful beach, rock pools, whale watching etc etc but no need to. We'd go back in a flash.
The best thing about Walatta House is the location with a gate leading directly onto one a sequence of beaches which come more protected from the prevailing waves as you head West. The house itself is no overlooked at all, and being raised from the beach, is very private. The amenities are very new, and apart from a couple of temperature control issues with the guest fridge, the facilities and decor are superb, while the private pool is the kind one dreams of when booking an exotic holiday. The Manager / Chef, Alwis, cooks delightful meals and will accompany you shopping if requested. The food shopping is not as cheap as guests might expect, but the excelllent quality of Alwis' food is a lot better value than paying for similar in a commercial restaurant. There are trips that can be taken using Walatta House as a base such as the Whale Watching in Mirissa, but such is the loaction and accommodation it is perhaps more worthwhile taking advantage of Walatta House rather than having an active touring programme. One point of note for families. The rooms are not connected and therefore younger children might feel uncomfortable not having access through a internal hallway to their parents room, access bieng external. That said, at no time during our stay was there anything other than a serendipitous feel to Walatta House, but parents may wish to view the floor plan to assess suitablility for children <10 years old.
This is the most incredibly stylish but laid back house, in the most amazing position above a beautiful empty beach. The house sits in the middle of a beautiful plot of land so is incredibly private, while being pretty close to everything you need in Tangalle. Architecturally, it is superb, the perfect mix of modernism and ethnicity.....without the compromise on luxury that this style can often suffer from. The staff where invisible but ever present, food delicious and so varied, endless pancakes for my children and perfect local curries containing so many dishes we did not know where the begin.
We wanted somewhere all 6 of our far flung our family could stay for our once a year gathering, somewhere that accommodated 'children' ranging from 11 years to 30, and Walatta House fitted the bill perfectly. The 3 bedrooms are very private, the views and beaches spectacular, and Tangalle with its shops and restaurants a short tuk-tuk ride away. It's a place to get away from it all (definitely not for clubbers) which is what we all wanted...but unlike some places where you feel on top of one another, in the words of one of our boys, Walatta allows you to 'be together and in your own space at the same time.' The open plan design breathes and allows you to be 'inside' while actually being outside
