I can't rave about this place more highly. I'm torn between telling everyone about it and keeping it a secret to keep all to myself.
The house itself is gorgeous. A truly unique design which makes you feel as if you are in the most gorgeous James Bond bunker ever. The villa is comfortable and has all the amenities and comforts you could ever need - Wifi, hairdryers, aircon etc.
The pool is huge and perfect, and the short walk down to the beach takes you to your own private beach paradise which comes with rockpools to explore for hours, and a gorgeous little beach bar and swing which you have all to yourself.
The true shining star of this place however is by far the staff who stop at nothing to make your stay perfect. The team go out of their way to make sure they have everything you want - they'll arrange massages, go pick up supplies from stores. They are amazing. The food especially is out of this world - Madhura is a Michelin star worthy chef hiding in a little beach town here. We have 2 small kids who usually live on a diet of nuggets and spaghetti, but with his cooking every single meal came up with empty plates and usually with second plates as well. Every meal was more delicious than the rest.
Thank you Walatta team!
Walatta house was one of our highlights of our architectural travel.
The house and the location were fantastic and all of us were excited.
Also the staff and the food were excellent.
I will be very happy to recommend the Walatta house.
Perfect place like a fairy tale :).
First of all, the amazing The Walatta House team. Very nice people who show that they love their work. They do everything they see in your eyes and nothing is a problem.
Madhura is an amazing cook. He would really be a celebrity in Europe, thanks to what he can do. Perfect tastes, all from quality ingredients. His traditional Sri Lankan curry was the best we have ever eaten. At the same time Italian Linguine perfect and absolutely authentic. Finally, the most important thing for me: When I heard my heartburn during my stay… Madhura had no problem to start cooking my diet food .. Steamed rice, steamed vegetables, steamed fish .. everything perfect and tasty. And that saved my stay because unfortunately I suffer from heartburn. When I once wanted the same thing in our country (Czech Republic), it was a big problem to make this diet: D. They looked at me like a fool that I didn't want another fried and spicy food…: D But not here. Madhura was perfect and really did what I wanted. Although my English is at a very poor level. That's why I translated via google translator and I wrote SMS to Madhura :). That was all right for him, too. At the same time, he continued to cook to my boyfriend without diet. so my boyfriend could enjoy all of Madhura's culinary art.
The rest of the Walatta House team made us feel more like a fairy tale. At the same time, they were very unobtrusive so that they would not disturb our rest. At night, the night watchman guarded and in the morning personally set up a room for the day and in the evening they set up mosquito nets. Above all, we got in touch with a very nice person named Surunga. Very cheerful and pleasant person with whom it was a pleasure to communicate with our bad English. Next to him were two other helpers who were helping with everything. At the same time, they were really unobtrusive not to disturb our rest.
Thanks to their care, I felt like a princess. :) Thank you very much again for everything.
My boyfriend went with Madhura to the market to see how Madhura buys fresh ingredienst. Madhura knows how to buy the freshest fish and seafood directly from small fishermen on the coast. He doesn't take anything from the stinking markets, he takes pasta from Italy… he buys vegetables
in organic quality and I have to confirm that I have never eaten such good vegetables. :)
As for the house, it is the perfect house that is in complete symbiosis with nature. Everything looks natural and very comfortable. The pool is beautiful and you will really swim in it and the best is finally, the beach below the house is breathtaking and can swim there beautifully.
Well just great big experience really like a fairy tale .. :)
Thank you very much for everything! :)
It is really amazing - i am used to booked nice houses arround the world but this one is really 5 stars - the house it self .
But also the location, the beach, the staff, the food, the company that takes care of the payments etc - everything is just so professional.
The place is really quiet. You have all this wild birds etc
We are already planing to go back next year !!!
Thank you all
This year we came for the third time within the last four years - and again enjoyed this extraordinary place. Besides the amazing location also the stuff around the cook and property manager Maduro is just wonderful. We have been welcomed warmly like having coming home. At any time they did their best to make our family happy and helped us to have a relaxing and peaceful stay.
We especially like the privacy of Walatta House and the beautyful beach which is directly accessable from the property.
