Hotel Introduction by The General Manager

Why House is the best of its kind on the south coast of Sri Lanka. Minutes to some of the best beaches in the area. Set in a peaceful village, a short walk to paddy fields and temples.


This stunning, family orientated boutique hotel sits within a beautifully landscaped three acre walled garden of tropical plants, fruit and spice trees. Here you can experience luxury with informality – a home away from home where no request is too small. Our team of friendly staff have been trained to give you the best service possible. Our food is delicious and can cater for all, whether you’re looking for Sri Lankan, Western or Asian food. The management is overseen by Henrietta, and welcomes guests as long lost friends, followed in tow by Nigella and Tigga the hotel pets, who are more than obliging to keep children entertained. A short walk or tuk tuk ride will take you to the spectacular Dalawella Beach, a beautiful lagoon created by a protective reef means safe swimming throughout the year. And we are 15 minutes from the extraordinary UNESCO world heritage site of Galle Fort.
