Lovely stay

In Sri Lanka, I was all one month. Of the 10 days I spent in this beautiful and peaceful place. The Well House is for me one of the few places where I will definitely like to come back. Their food was delicious! I look forward to go back there again.

THE Place

Quite an experience! One hour from Colombo by express bus, 10 minutes from Galle by tuktuk, 3 minutes walking distance from the Indian Ocean, not only will you fall under the charm of this beautiful colonial house, but you will not resist the friendliness and the skills of Sudath and Dimutu, the dream team that will welcome and take care of you during your stay. Fantastic location, sophisticated rooms, talented staff, this is The Well House, THE place to stay

An amazing week in the Well House

I spent one week in the Well House with 5 of my friends. We had a great week, everything was perfect. The staff was so nice and very friendly. Dimuthu and Sudath took really good care of us. Esuru was amazing too he would take us anywhere at anytime. Really miss these guys, hope to see them again. I would really recommend staying at this beautifull villa. Its location is perfect, its very close to the beach ( a 30 second walk). And was close to unawatune beach too.

Simply delightful

Just spent five nights at this beautiful place. The style and elegance is utterly stunning. I just sat looking at the place most of the time. The staff are very professional and helpful. The garden is just beautiful , with monkeys coming to visit most mornings. Mark was exceptionally helpful and we had great communications. I was very sorry to leave but will return without hesitation. A real slice of heaven.

My favorite place!

I have just arrived after three weeks at the Well House. I love this place! This was my 6th visit and I’m already looking forward to the 7th visit next year :-) The staff, especially Dimithu and Sudath, takes very good care of the guest. And Dimithu makes very good food. My favorite place on earth!

Gorgeous colonial era property

Set in 0.5 acres of tropical gardens, this charismatic family-friendly Manor house is only three minutes stroll from the beach just south of Galle Fort. Home to three ensuite bedrooms, breezy living verandah and dining space and a fully equipped kitchen, this recently renovated colonial era property blends period features and genuine antiques with a contemporary interior design with cool polished Titanium white cement floors.

Modern distractions are absent here as the emphasis is on relaxing and making the most of the gorgeous tropical beaches and activities nearby. Current owner of the house is a renown artist and actor and has used his artistic skills to give a wonderful look to the villa. A newly built Boutique Hotel is one minute walk from the villa allowing you to enjoy their reputable hospitality services.

The villa consists of three air-conditioned bedrooms. Each features four-poster beds draped in soft mosquito netting, a wardrobe and a contemporary ensuite bathroom with rain shower, mini bar, TV in all rooms.
