Situated between Waikkal Beach and the Gin Oya estuary north of Negombo, Wattura offers spacious and luxurious family-friendly villas and suites. It provides a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle and is wonderful for travellers with young children or are focused on wellness.
There are many of the usual facilities available, like a large pool, spa and gym, as well as the beach on your doorstep. Plenty of activities are on offer to keep you entertained, like a river safari down Gin Oya, a private deep sea fishing cruise, whale and dolphin watching during the right season and a day trip safari into Wilpattu National Park. Well-catered for the kids and teenagers, there is a water zone with water slides, arcade games and creative spaces as well as themed events and fun dining options. Enjoy a range of cuisines at the Pappali restaurant, otherwise enjoy a special meal along the beach or in the privacy of your own suite or garden.
27 villas and suites are spread out along the beach front and along the calm estuary, so no matter what room category you choose, you will have lovely views. They’re all extremely spacious, which is great for those with children or travelling in groups, and the Gin Oya Suites and Wattura Residence can occupy up to 6 people. With lovely lounge areas, gardens and some with their own plunge pools, you’ll find it hard to leave your suite.
In all, Wattura is a great choice for families or groups looking for a relaxing getaway on the west coast with direct beach access and spacious accommodation.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
