“Kahanda Kanda hotel is a couples-orientated boutique hotel in the Galle hills. We’re big fans of its unique and peaceful atmosphere, and the feeling of seclusion despite it being within easy reach of the main sights. For a small boutique hotel, it has fantastic facilities – a little tea-fringed spa, a yoga pavilion and a gym. Opt for a villa and you get your own private pool.”
Located on Sri Lanka’s southern coast, a short tuk-tuk ride from Galle, Kahanda Kanda is a stylish, intimate retreat on a working tea plantation. Known affectionately as KK, this couples-oriented hotel has the ambience of a private villa complemented by impeccable service and first-class amenities.
The eleven stylish suites are housed in individual villas scattered throughout tropical gardens. The rooms feature a fusion of stately teak furniture, vibrant textiles, window-seat daybeds, four-poster beds, and squashy chairs. Each villa has a private veranda and walled courtyard, some with outdoor showers, while some have private pools.
The restaurant serves classic Sri Lankan curries and Asian-fusion cuisine.
Explore the tea plantation, learn the secrets of Sri Lankan and Thai cuisine, laze around the pool, and enjoy a yoga class. KK’s excellent location makes it easy to visit Galle Fort, explore Kanneliya Rainforest and Udawalawe National Park, and go boating on Koggala Lake.
