WHY House

WHY House Sitting on an ample three acre estate overlooking traditional paddy fields, this seven bedroom property offers its guests a tranquil privacy unknown to its neighbouring villas located on the bustling Galle road. Situated within a palm shaded parkland full of tropical plants and flowers less than a kilometre inland from the beach at Talpe, WHY is a beautiful resort characterised by whitewashed walls, pillared verandahs, highly polished cement floors, shimmering chandeliers and soft furnishings in pastel tones. Rooms - furnished with antique chests, tables and wardrobes - are split between two cabanas facing the pool, a small garden house and the main building whose wide verandah is perfectly placed to watch sunset.

Although the salt-water swimming pool is huge and a luxury in itself, one of the defining features of WHY is having its own exclusive beach club within a few minutes' drive by three wheeler. Situated on a sandy beach and beside a protected coral lagoon that makes swimming safe year round, guests can bask in the sun, absorb the views and enjoy chilled drinks and snacks in very privileged surroundings. Many however may prefer the privacy of WHY House where relaxing in the Jacuzzi, indulging in ayurvedic massages and sampling the gourmet creations of the villa's Italian owner are the perfect ingredients for a relaxing holiday. The daily changing menu here offers some of the best Italian food on the south coast.

WHY can be rented by as an exclusive private villa. For those wishing to venture out it is within easy reach of temples, lowland tea estates, surfing beaches and the old Dutch forts of Galle and Matara.
