W15 is a ten-bedroom boutique hotel with a princely aspect on Weligama Bay. Its striking appearance is hard to miss. Showcasing a unique sense of style, W15 is the newest kid on the shore. Offering ten individually-designed rooms, the hotel caters to those who seek style and luxury whilst enjoying the surroundings of tropical sun and sea.
W15 is a perfect combination of modern architecture, minimalist design and the traditional Sri Lankan concept of open-air spaces. From the funky open-air deck fitted with red sunbeds, to the contemporary restaurant, to the surround-sound system that covers the entire area, every aspect of this boutique hotel embraces diverse design.
Unlike other hotels, W15 doesn’t have a designated reception area: they handle check-ins at the convenience of their guests, whether it’s in the lounge or in their room. The entrance has an unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean and is only a couple of steps from the sandy shoreline.
The ten rooms at W15 are categorized into four types: one Standard room, four Superior rooms, four Ocean View Deluxe rooms and one Executive Suite. All rooms are individually designed, furnished with eclectic hand-picked pieces, and are complete with a king-sized bed, an ensuite bathroom with hot and cold water, a flat screen TV, A/C and a fan, a minibar, an electric safe and coffee/tea making amenities. The rooms are also equipped with a Geneva Bluetooth speaker that can connect to iPods/iPads wirelessly and play music of your choice.
W15 has a restaurant, bar and lounge with shisha facilities, and an open-air deck with sunbeds. The restaurant, Aura by W15 offers a variety of international and Sri Lankan delicacies, with a special emphasis on local produce and delicious fresh seafood.
