We booked The Wallawwa for our last night in Sri Lanka to be close to the airport without being in touristy Negombo. We arrived early in the afternoon so that we could take full advantage of what appeared to be a beautiful, peaceful hotel. We are so glad we did! The hotel itself was great: sleek and modern but with loads of character. The service was very good: check in and check out were quick, and the hotel arranged transportation for us to the airport for our flight. And the food was very good, as well.
This was a perfect place for us to begin to transition back into life in the UK after nearly 3 weeks abroad. The Wallawwa embodies all of the things we grew to love about Sri Lanka: the beautiful flora and fauna, the amazing food, and the warm hospitality. But the modern conveniences offered at this hotel (easy-to-use printer for printing off our boarding passes) made leaving all that behind just a little bit easier.
