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. The imperative was to maximise interaction between the indoors and out, to create a sense of openness and space.

Thus the landscape is used as an integral design element with an open sided living room offering stunning views across the infinity pool to the ocean, the beaches and the sky.

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

Courtyards and landscape penetrate the bedrooms and bathrooms, allowing maximum airflow and natural ventilation, and the heat absorbing grass roof also minimises the need for air conditioning - although all 3 bedrooms do ha...

The Walatta House is a very special place. Its garden leads straight onto a great little beach, the house is gorgeous and almost entirely outdoor except for the bedrooms meaning you are in and surrounded by nature the whole time and the staff are exceptional. I booked some time ago and was very worried about one terrible review a while...

They think on your individual needs before...

Management response:

Thank you so much for your kind review and I am glad that you had such a lovely time. We are lucky with our beaches directly in front of and close to the house and it is great that you were able to explore them although I agree that simply relaxing in the pool can be quite inviting. Thank you...

Walatta met all our expectations and more. We're a family of 4, 2 boys aged 5 and 7. 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...
