Wellé Wadiya meaning 'Beach Hut' is a tropical boutique hotel set on the unspoilt beach of Kandakuliya in Kalpitiya. The calm sea, golden sand and private location make Kandakuliya beach one of the best in Kalpitiya peninsular. Wellé Wadiya combines simple, modern décor, traditional Sri Lankan hospitality, and all the amenities you might need. With the help of our manager, Anura, and a small team of friendly staff, we will provide a personalised service and make sure your stay is enjoyable and memorable.
We have six spacious double bedrooms with private ocean view balconies. The elegantly decorated rooms are available with
super king size or twin beds. Our guests can enjoy en-suite bathrooms with hot water and modern rain showers. Each room has
Tea and coffee making facilities and adequate storage space for baggage and sports equipment.
Due to its remote and secluded location, air conditioning is not available at the hotel. However all rooms are cooled with ceiling fans, and the upper floor rooms are cleverly designed with high ceilings for good cross ventilation. The two downstairs rooms have air coolers in addition to the ceiling fans to ensure a comfortable stay.
All our food is freshly prepared by the resident Chef using locally sourced ingredients. As well as his expertise in Sri Lankan cuisine, the Chef has a wealth of experience to cater for international palates. The charming restaurant specialises in fresh, locally sourced seafood, and the famous Kalpitiya crabs are a regular feature in our diverse menu. Meals can be taken inside the ocean fronted restaurant or Al Fresco style on the beach. Beach BBQs are also a regular feature in the evenings at Wellé Wadiya.
