The Wallawwa

+

The heavy warm air, rich green foliage, multi-coloured Buddhist flags and a kaleidoscopic display of saris, fruits, jewellery and spices inspired Marco Polo to describe Sri Lanka as 'the most beautiful island in the world'. For a small island, it offers a truly amazing variety of attractions: archaeological sites and well-preserved national parks inhabited by elephants, leopards, monkeys, crocodiles and rare birdlife; vast tea and spice plantations and sacred Buddhist shrines.

In the misty UNESCO-listed Central Highlands, the picturesque lakeside town of Kandy is home to the legendary Temple of the Tooth, while other attractions within this vast cultural triangle include Sigiriya Rock Fortress, with its extraordinary rock paintings, ancient monastries, the Ceylon Tea Museum and vast expanses of montane rainforest..

Elephants – symbols of the island – can be found working in the countryside and gathered en masse by the temples at festival time. Do pay a visit to one of the elephant sanctuaries, which act as conservation and educational centres on the island. There’s hardly a month goes by without some kind of religious celebration – every full moon day (‘Poya’) is special in the Buddhist calendar because the Buddha was born, attained Enlightenment and died all on a full moon day. Consequently, shops and banks are closed and alcohol cannot be served in public places, but hotels do make special arrangements for their guests.
 
Helicopter transfers from the airport now make access to popular Sri Lankan destinations even easier. Please call our Travel Consultants for further information.

Staying at

The Wallawwa

The elegant rooms in this lovingly restored 200-year-old Colonial manor house, complete with broad pillared verandas, retain their original period features, enhanced with luxurious details and contemporary pops of colour. Situated amidst five acres of manicured tropical gardens with an outdoor pool and soothing spa, the Wallawwa is the perfect stopover for your first or last night in this magnificent country. Dine on international dishes served with an Asian twist, either at the side of the lawn or on the sienna-stoned terrace, beneath the open skies; unwind with a signature massage containing just a hint of Ayruveda at the Z Spa, or discover an unexpected literary delight in the cosy Library. Guests can cool off in the Indian stone pool in a quiet corner of the gardens or purchase unusual gifts in the shop, the profits from which go to local charities.

Overlooking an inviting stretch of golden sand, where Sea Turtles nest by moonlight and elephants saunter from the nearby jungle to cool off in the surf, Chena Huts by Uga Escapes lies equidistant between a tropical jungle and large lagoon, where storks and flamingos are known to frequent. The resort’s excellent location invites guests to explore local points of interest, including ancient temples, paddy fields and two national parks, including Bundala National Park, regarded as one of Sri Lanka’s best locations for bird-watching.

The distinctive accommodation at this resort retain their naturalistic essence of ancient huts, seamlessly blended into their stunning surroundings, but each one is equipped with climate control, fine furnishings, plunge pools and luxury amenities.
