The Well House, a home with over 200 years of history renovated in 2014 is situated overlooking Bonavista bay in Unawatuna Galle. Over a century of service began with the creation of a freshwater well by a merchant family who produced coconut oil in a factory that became one of the largest in Galle. The puzzle of the well remains a mystery, it is the only fresh drinking water well that has never run dry or developed a salt content in the local area.
The recently renovated rooms retain the character they adopted over the past century and a half.
