“Why House is a charming property with an easy, breezy atmosphere that draws couples and families alike. If you’re travelling en masse the villa is perfect, and if you wish to be private, go for the cabanas. Away from the rooms, the swimming pool is perfect for lengths (or just bobbing about on a giant inflatable!), and the home-cooked Sri Lankan curry is one of the best we’ve ever tasted.”
A short walk from the Wijaya beach, Why House is nestled within three acres of landscaped gardens of neon bougainvillea and tropical plants, and bordered by rice fields where peacocks, kingfishers, long-tailed monkeys and monitor lizards like to roam.
Guestrooms are split between the main building, cabanas and garden villas. Boasting a hip, homely and chic feel, the rooms here are a fabulous fusion of comfortable local stylings, bold colours, embroidery cushions, and luxurious modern amenities. The resident pet dachshund is such a hit with the guests here that she’s immortalised in soft toy form and placed on every bed!
The ornate dining pavilion showcases 360-degree views of the garden and will undoubtedly become your key social space during the holiday. With it comes a second open-plan kitchen where the staff will concoct a drink of your choice and whip up aromatic snacks from the open-top grill or BBQ.
