Hotel Review

With ten beautiful rooms tucked away amidst lush tropical gardens in a quiet village just 20 minutes from gorgeous Galle Fort, Why House offers a fantastically friendly home-away-from-home feel. Unwind by the pool, savour long lunches in the open-air restaurant (think gooey cheese toasties and lovely fresh salads) and discover this striking stretch of the south coast with the help of marvellous manager Henrietta’s expert recommendations. Smart rooms are generously proportioned and thoughtfully appointed, with scope to create interconnecting family suites or for groups of friends to take over a 3-bedroom Garden Villa or two-bedroom Bungalow. Boasting an excellent team and a buzzing, sociable atmosphere, Why House is a standout spot which guests return to again and again.
