A tranquil escape set on a seductive swathe of sand, tucked away between the Waikkal Beach and Gin Oya Estuary.

Wattura Sinhala for ‘water’ is Sri Lanka’s first family and wellness luxury boutique hotel. It is tucked away on a ‘seductive swathe of sand’ between Waikkal beach and the Gin Oya estuary, and hence boasts beautiful ocean and river views.

Enjoy the seclusion of one of the Wattura Villas, with its own butler, plunge pool and garden stretching down onto the beach. You can relax and enjoy the spa or a romantic candleit dinner even if you’re on a family holiday as the children have their own play and water area, indoor and outdoor games and will be entertained by staff. The Wattura Spa features deep and shallow pools, cascading waterfalls, hot and cold relaxation areas, a Zen garden in addition to the treatment rooms.

Choose to dine looking out over the ocean or the river or in your own intimate soundproof private dining area for a peaceful and romantic lunch or dinner. The food is delicious and contemporary Sri Lankan in style with South Indian influences and Arabic grilling techniques.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to excursions. Go for a whale and dolphin watching trip on a luxury yacht, venture out for some deep sea fishing, relax with an extravagant picnic on the beach, go on safari in Wilpattu National Park, try some kitesurfing and visit the nearby town of Negombo.

It’s a perfect escape for couples families alike and the ideal place to start or end your holiday, especially as it is located only 10km from the airport. Having said that you may want to stay for a week or longer!
