Welcome to Nisala Arana Boutique Hotel

The former ancestral home of a famed village Ayurveda Doctor ‘Veda Mahattaya’, this property has now been styled as a charming and exclusive Boutique Hotel.

The Wallawwa is set on four and a half acres of coconut estate and Bawa designed tropical gardens minutes from Bentota beach and the Indian Ocean, making it one of the most unique and conveniently located boutique hotels in Sri Lanka.

The property, dappled with fruit and medicinal trees, palms and orchids is a sanctuary for native and migratory tropical birdlife. Expansive views of the property are offered from three individual villas
overlooking the colonnaded garden pavilion and freshwater pool. The original manor house, shrine room or Budu Ge and traditional Wedding hall were built c.1850. The estate ownership was
transferred from original family members of the Veda Mahattaya in 2001 when a sympathetic restoration began. The name Nisala Arana meaning ‘an abode of peace’ remains auspicious
and was serendipitously offered by a visiting Buddhist Monk and his friend a Professor of the village just before officially opening our doors to friends, family and guests.
