Welcome to the Why House
The Why House is one of the real stunners on Sri Lanka’s southern coast. It’s a colonial villa-cum-boutique hotel and has been the pick of the bunch amongst a growing crowd of imitators for many years.
The house sits slightly inland from some of the south’s finest beaches – those with beautiful golden sand and great swimming. It boasts gorgeous gardens and a stunning swimming pool.
Managed with an increasingly rare charm, the Why House is the ideal spot either for beach-time near Galle, or for perfectly quiet relaxation.
Though with only eight, the Why House offers a real variety of rooms, all offering private garden or pool-view terraces. You can choose from rooms in the old main house, the Garden House, or one of the two Cabanas that sit lower in the garden, overlooking paddy fields below.
Perfecting it over many years, the Why House offers a great mix, of western, Sri Lankan and wider Asian dishes – the latter rather rare on the island. All ingredients are locally sourced and dishes beautifully served.
