Wonderful time at Walatta House

Lovely holiday villa We had a lovely stay at Walatta and were looked after really well by the team. The house design is modern with the whole of the front is open facing the pool and ocean. There is an inner courtyard garden with openings to the elements. The bedrooms are comfortable and clean with welcoming air con and the bathrooms are inside outside. There is an inner room with Sat TV to keep the kids happy in the evening whilst we dined on Alwis's cooking. We went shopping to the fresh markets with Alwis one day which was fun to haggle for fish but it was no means required. On other days all receipts were presented to us in an easy format and we were able to budget. The beach is accessed down the slope, that might be slippery when wet, and was wonderfully deserted. The sea can be rough and children should not be left out of sight. The pool in the villa has views out to sea. There is a deck built into the hillside on which we did yoga in the mornings and relaxed on in the afternoons. Wonderful. In all a lovely holiday...we will be back

Amazing, stunning place, beautiful house and the most wonderful staff.

Myself my husband and our 4 year old son stayed for nearly 3 weeks in Walatta House. It is without a doubt the most amazing place we have ever stayed (and we have stayed in some great places around the world). It saddens me to read the previous post that someone wrote so negatively about the place and complain about towels etc.....(the towels are fine by the way!) I think they have missed the point of the place. The house is amazingly well designed. Its simple yet elegant. I can't remember who the architect was but it reminded me of Geoffrey Bawa or Carlo Scarp....Its really amazing to be able to stay in such a great house. The view is stunning, right over the sea. We spent most of our days lounging by the pool or wandering down to the little beach for a swim and sunbath. (again ignore their complaints of how steep it is- yes its abit steep but our 4 year old managed it perfectly well, and if it was built closer to the sea you would loose the amazing views you get from where the house is built). The staff are all fantastic, and they were always professional and always respected your privacy but at the same time would gladly let our son potter about with them and chat away, our son really loved the security guard and would sit and chat to him for ages, he also really loved the gardener who spoke no English but his smile and positivity were infectious and he would show Tommy things in the garden and communicate without either of them able to speak each others language. They were truly wonderful, kind people. Wally the dog wandering about and joining us at the beach was great too...... The food is amazing. Alwys made the best food we had on our entire trip, he would also make less spicy versions of what we had for our son, or something entirely different. The breakfasts were insane! Beyond amazing! Sheehan one of the helpers would climb up the palm trees most days and pick a fresh coconut for our son. I really cannot stress how lovely everyone was and how helpful. I would go back tomorrow if I could.

Best place to relax and enjoy

We arrived to the house to stay for 4 nights. I wish it would have been longer. The house is beautiful. The pool inviting and perfect if you like to swim. It is not wide but it is 20 meter long and perfect for some laps. The crew working there are wonderful. They are very attentive and willing to do whatever it is to make your stay very comfortable. Short walk down to the beach where you are completely alone Ina nice sandy beach. The rooms are well kept and comfortable. Beds are great and for extra comfort you have mosquito nets. You can close the wood doors to have privacy or have them open to have the nice light in the morning The food made by the house cook is delicious. You can choose the menu and have a wonderful time We were told to order wine before coming. We got a list. It worked wonderfully. Enjoy this place in quite and comfort. We did.

Walatta met all our expectations... and more

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 villas close by but the beach was not crowded at all. There is a very sweet bar at the beach for a late afternoon drink and fresh mussels. The walatta staff were great. The food was outstanding. One morning we walked to a nearby beach to watch the fishing boats come in and the house chef (alwis) was down there selecting our fresh fish for the day. We travelled to nearby beaches for some surfing and adventuring which was all very easy but to be honest we ended up just staying at the villa and enjoying it... our boys still talk about chasing the fireflies at night. We can't recommend it enough if you're wanting a relaxing and grounding holiday.

Description

An architectural masterpiece with stunning views

Walatta House is an architectural masterpiece that offers a perfect mix of modernism and ethnicity. Partially ‘submerged’ into a hillside, it provides 180 degree views of the Indian Ocean. The open-plan layout and design maximizes the interaction between the indoors and out to create a sense of openness and space. The landscape is used as an integral element in the design with the living room opening onto and offering stunning views across the infinity pool to the ocean, the beaches and beyond. The bedrooms also seem to extend naturally into courtyards to allow for maximum airflow and natural ventilation while the heat-absorbing grass minimizes air-conditioning.

Walatta House has 3 bedrooms all with en-suites and all air-conditioned. Two of the bedrooms have double beds while the third has one twin and is ideal for children sharing. The bathrooms are indoor / outdoor and all bedrooms have French windows with views onto the gardens. The master bedroom has French sliding floor to ceiling windows on three sides and a small terrace overlooking pool. Passing the bedrooms, you enter the open plan and open sided sitting and dining area.

The open sided sitting and dining area of Walatta House is fitted with a teak dining table where you can enjoy meals or just relax. The TV room has a comfortable L-shaped sofa. The fully equipped kitchen allows you to prepare your own meals and also the option to have the villa's cook to prepare and pamper you with the choicest dishes. The kitchen and staff house is in a separate building adjacent to the main house. Outdoors, the rectangular infinity pool runs the length of the house while the secluded beaches are just a few metres down the slope. The tropical garden is a tranquil paradise and is ideal to relax and socialize. The villa is staffed with cook, steward, houseboy, gardener and security.
