What's in a name?


WoWaikiki is short for ‘Wellawatte on Waikiki’ named after the beloved costal area of Wellawatte in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Wellawatte means ‘Beach Garden’ and we believe our home offers that perfect balance of a beautiful beach with a spacious garden and bushland to boot all at hand for our wonderful guests.


Wellawatte is a buzzing market area of Colombo renowned for their jewellery and textile shops as well as the beautiful beachfront sweeping it’s border. It is home to one of the Colombo’s famous icons, the Savoy Cinema, as well as the Kinross Swimming and Life Saving Club.​
