Sri SharaviVillas in Mirissa
Rooms brim with creature comforts while a dedicated team of staff led by experienced western management promises a level of personalised service unmatched on the south coast. Coupled with an excellent in-house restaurant and large pool, Why House is your home-from-home in Sri Lanka.
Our dedicated head chef presides over a small kitchen team with one of the biggest reputations on the south coast. Whether you’re in the mood for Sri Lankan, Western or Asian cuisine, our gourmet in-house restaurant will not disappoint. All of the dishes on our menu are prepared from the best locally sourced ingredients and served to our breezy open-sided dining pavilion or privately to your room veranda if you prefer.
Why House sleeps a maximum of 20 guests in eight double ensuite rooms with private garden- or pool-view terraces. Each individually designed room comes with air conditioning, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, mini fridge and a luxurious ensuite bathroom. Individual rooms, or the Main House and Garden House in their entirety, can be booked independently, or the whole property taken on an exclusive basis.
Why House is ideally located for exploring Galle and the region’s sandy beaches, and for embarking on seasonal whale watching, diving, surfing and snorkelling expeditions. The colonial hybrid fort of Galle is just 15-minutes away, and is a richly historic cosmopolitan enclave home to centuries-old buildings, museums, cafes and shops. Other activities include guided bike rides, lowland tea estate visits and boat rides on Koggala Lake. Spa therapists carry out in-room treatments at the hotel, and we also offer customised Sri Lankan cookery demonstrations for our gourmet guests.
Why House is located in Mihiripenna, 15-minutes’ drive from the historic UNESCO-certified Galle Fort. Our location is private and tranquil, yet pristine beaches are just a few minutes’ walk away. As a destination, south coast Galle has it all; a sandy coastline, fragrant tea and spice plantations, ancient temples andlakes. Udawalawe National Park, famous for elephants, makes for an easy day trip while Colombo’s international airport is a two-and-a-half-hour drive away or one-hour domestic flight.
