With birds chirping in the palm trees swaying overhead, you’ll soon realize that Why House is more than just any villa; it is an oasis where time slows down. On arrival, Henrietta, the manager, will inevitably share not only signature Sri Lankan cocktails, but some hearty laughter. Why House is known for its friendly atmosphere and Henrietta, from time to time gathers guests for drinks or shared dinners prepared by veteran chefs. Of course, you may choose to enjoy the serenity in solitude-there’s no pressure! Each of the bespoke Italian-inspired rooms have private terraces and the three-acre property has places to lounge, dine, and sunbathe among the 300 species of plants.
Whether you prefer to enjoy the magic within Why House or venture outside, there is something for everyone. Within the tranquil property, you can unwind with an ayurvedic massage or spa treatment, practice yoga, take a swim, or learn to make Sri Lankan curry.
Just beyond, you may choose to explore local wildlife and villages on a bike tour, take a boat trip on Kogalla Lake, embark on an elephant safari, or learn to surf! For a tropical adventure or a calm getaway, Why House showcases the best of Sri Lanka.
