- Expertly Crafted
- Peace of Mind
A short walk from the Wijaya beach, in Sri Lanka, 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.
Why House is a fabulous boutique villa, catering for large parties in its spacious ensuite guestrooms which are split between the main building, cabanas, and garden villa. The rooms fuse sophisticated European tastes with the tropics of Sri Lanka creating a luxurious and comforting home for you and your family.
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.
The older kids can go off snorkeling, boogie boarding, or surfing, or perhaps you’d all fancy a day trip out on the seas hoping to be followed by whales or dolphins!

Why House in Sri Lanka is a charming property with an easy, breezy atmosphere that draws couples and families alike. If you’re traveling 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.
