Why House - Description

Why House is a family orientated boutique hotel located on the outskirts of Galle, near the small coastal town of Koggala. The hotel is surrounded by a three-acre walled garden of tropical plants, fruit and spice trees. The team of friendly staff are always on stand-by to ensure a perfect stay. An outside dining pavilion sits next to the large swimming pool, where you can admire the impressive landscape of the surrounding garden.


The property has 4 different room types in 4 different locations across the three-acre land. There are 10 double en-suite rooms that can sleep up to 24 guests in total, all with private terraces. Each room has free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, mini fridge, and an en-suite bathroom with amenities provided by the Kemara Spa in Colombo.


Why House offers a western spin on Sri Lankan and Lebanese cuisine, made fresh by the in-house team. Options include fresh seafood, Thai, Middle Eastern classics, and they even offer a roast dinner with roast potatoes! Food is served at the dining pavilion, although private dining is available on the terraces or verandas.


The property offers plenty of in-house activities and can also arrange various excursions. For example, they provide a cooking demo, which will guide you on the ingredients and spices that make a perfect Sri Lankan curry, a cultural show such as Kandy Dancers, and ways to relax like yoga and massages. Local excursions include a boat safari on the Koggala Lagoon, Galle Fort walking tours, and tea and cinnamon plantation tours.
