Thalpe Walawwa is a 75 year old, beautifully restored Manor House set amidst a 10acre Organic coconut estate and is located just a 5minutes drive away from the pristine beaches of Unawatuna. The tranquility and privacy at the main House/secluded Garden Villa helps you relax and unwind from the moment of entering the premises of Thalpe Walawwa. The beautiful infinity edged swimming pool at the edge of the Garden adds glamour to this historical property.
Thalpe Walawwa has been visited by several Prime Ministers including Rt.Hon. Dudley Senanayake, Prime Minister four times from 1950 to 1969 and the first woman Prime Minister of the world Madam Sirimavo R.D. Bandaranaike and has been the venue for many a political discussion which considerably altered the direction of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) from time to time.
Constructed before the 2nd World War, it has weathered the tests of time and stands beautifully restored and refurbished whilst protecting its traditional architecture of English influence.
Back to the grand old charm.
The historic Dutch Fort of Galle is only twenty minutes away. Distance from the Katunayake Intl Airport is approximately 160 KM and is only a one and a half hour drive through the southern expressway from Colombo.
Thalpe Walawwa has been home to a family of southern aristocracy and has been the childhood residence of a socialist leader who went on to become a member of the cabinet and the present Governor of Southern Province who was also a former Minister.
This traditional family manor house now consists of 03 beautifully appointed suites within the main house along with 02 Suites in the Garden Villa which is perched on a small hill, giving the guest even more exposure to the nature.
The Garden is frequently patronized by birds and peacocks dancing in the sunshine is a common sight which would make you hold your breath for a moment.
