This boutique hotel is run by and Italian fellow and his partner , but real trick is the mother in the kitchen advising the staff how to work! We had a wonderful lunch and swim in the pool here.

A sensational 2 room boutique hotel and restaurant in the south Gold Coast of Sri Lanka. WB is a private house but also the essential location for food and sun-seekers; it’s a secluded and stylish retreat just minutes from Galle where you can relax by the sea and indulge in delicious Italian cuisine accompanied by a good choice of wines. Chill out in tropical lounging pavilions, go for a dip in the beautiful coral lagoon and dry off on sun drenched loungers whilst enjoying the beautiful panorama of the ocean. The Italian owner’s classic architectural styling has been cleverly combined with monochrome interiors and luxurious furnishings that invite you to do no more than relax and imbibe.Indulge in a daily-changing menu that includes homemade choice of sauce for pastas, freshly baked "ciabatta" bread and plenty of fresh seafood. Items such as Italian antipasti and real Extra Virgin Olive Oil are specially imported from Italy for authenticity. Evening menus can always be pre-arranged whilst our scenic location makes WB the ideal place to host private parties that can be tailor-made to meet your individual desires and needs. You are welcome and as the coral lagoon offers safe and secluded swimming year-round it is a comfortably reassuring choice.
