Nestled amidst a two acre coconut estate and lush tropical gardens, The Wallawwa is a luxurious boutique hotel situated just 15 minutes from the International Airport.

What We Say

The Wallawwa is considered to be one of Sri Lanka’s best boutique hotels. If you are looking to arrive in Sri Lanka and immediately be pampered in luxury without any travelling, then this is the place for you. This is helped by its rather exclusive Spa, where a range of top class treatments are available.


Another option is to stay here to unwind after an island tour prior to your departure from the island.


The hotel is located in the northern Colombo suburb of Minuwangoda so there is nothing much to do in the vicinity except to totally relax and take in the ambience.

"We have returned from an excellent holiday in Sri Lanka.

Elephant Island Tours is a truly customer focused organisation.Our first connect was with Justin in the London Office. He listened carefully to understand our particular needs and apparitions. We were most impressed by his speed of reply, helpful suggestions and advice. The tour fulfilled all our needs. You cannot overestimate the importance of the first contact - Thank you Justin.

The shop window of your organisation was our driver guide Mahendra. He proved to be very knowledgeable and a brilliant driver. He quickly became our friend. He was so helpful in all ways He never let us down. The car was more than adequate for our needs and always clean - Thank you Mahendra."

"I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka where I booked a 6 day overland tour through Elephant Island.

Absolutely faultless. The detailed itinerary put together by Amanda at EI incorporated absolutely everything we wanted to do and gave us a fantastic overview of Sri Lanka, its culture, its wildlife and its history.

Our driver Rohan was exceptional. He drove us with care, explained everything in detail and offered us numerous additional stops for activities such as elephant rides, a look around Kandy market and a trip to Nuwara Eliya. I would make sure, next time I go to Sri Lanka, that I had Rohan driving me around.

If you're going to Sri Lanka you MUST book through EI! The whole process was so smooth and ensured that I had the most amazing time in what is surely one of the world's most beautiful countries."
