An idyllic inland location near Galle’s sultry coastline allows Why House to offer its guests the best of both worlds; a tranquil setting amidst rural rice fields and easy access to picture-postcard beaches, a mere five-minutes’ drive away.
Why House has a total of eight well-appointed rooms. The six spacious and luxurious suites are spread across two separate buildings whilst two cottagey cabanas overlook the paddy fields. Set in lush gardens, facilities include an open-sided living and dining pavilion with bar (added in late 2016), an elegant lounge and a jade-green swimming pool.
This country-style hotel attracts couples, families and groups, who adore its relaxed, home-from-home ambience. Each guestroom is elegantly designed, and the classic-colonial ebony and ivory-hued interior and exterior living and dining areas are at once sumptuous, comfortable and refined.
Bookable by the room or the entire property, Why House is an exclusive private retreat with an attentive staff team headed by efficient western management. The excellent chef serves homemade western, Lebanese, Sri Lankan and pan-Asian cuisine.
