Luxury Holidays At Wattura Resort & Spa

A great place to begin or end your luxury Sri Lanka holiday, Wattura Resort & Spa is a beautiful boutique hotel on the west coast, not far from the capital Colombo and its international airport. Wattura is the Sinhala term for ‘water’, which aptly describes the hotel’s location between Waikkal beach and the Gin Oya estuary, as well as the calming presence of water that runs throughout the property. Indulge in an organic treatment at the wonderful Wattura Spa or unwind beside the layered infinity pool while overlooking the Indian Ocean. Little ones are warmly welcomed into a dedicated kids’ club, while direct access to the golden sands of Waikkal Beach is sure to please the entire family. Dining can be enjoyed in the pool-facing restaurant or in various alfresco spots around the property, perfect for refuelling after embracing the range of excursions on offer – from kite surfing across the waves of the Indian Ocean to boat safaris along the Gin Oya river.
