Tangalle, Southern Province
Walatta House is one of the most unique villas on the south coast. The house is partially ‘submerged’ into a hillside that overlooks the Indian Ocean and offers a seamless junction between architecture and nature. It is a superb example of contemporary design.

Indoors, too, the design blurs any distinction between house and garden.

The architecture and design of the house was very special with a balanced mix of outdoor and indoor living, and the interiors are super stylish and functional. The property is walking distance to a very private beach. There are some other holiday...

Dear Jen, Thank you for taking the time to write the review. It is great that 'food to table' is just a few minutes when selecting fish...and I am thrilled that the small beach bar appears to have a 'foodie' in the kitchen also. It would be our great pleasure to welcome you back and so I hope you will...

We arrived to the house to stay for 4 nights. I wish it would have been longer. The house is beautiful. The pool inviting and perfect if you like to swim. It is not wide but it is 20 meter long and perfect for some laps. The crew working there are wonderful. They are very attentive and willing to do...

Myself my husband and our 4 year old son stayed for nearly 3 weeks in Walatta House. It is without a doubt the most amazing place we have ever stayed (and we have stayed in some great places around the world). It saddens me to read the previous post that someone wrote so negatively about the place and complain about...
