Stayed here for 2 nights in the Dubu Suite during a 3 week honeymoon in Sri Lanka. While more pricey than other options, once here we fully appreciated we'd decided to stay. All meals were superb, and the wine list is more comprehensive and reasonably priced than many other hotels. Staff were very attentive, and also met the owner who... More

I rarely do a five star review but this place does everything right. You will never regret booking here. It might be a bit pricey but it's well worth it. I wish I could go back. Simple but good food. Fantastic room with great decor and huge terrace overlooking wildlife, trees, and more. It was like watching National Geographic from... More

We stayed here for 7 wonderful nights. The food, service and ambience were outstanding. George is an entertaining host and the staff did everything they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. It is well located, surrounded by lush landscaping and only a short tuk tuk ride from the beautiful beach. By far the best place we stayed during... More

Fantastic stay, attentive staff, lots of attention to detail, breathtaking views, delicious well-prepared food, and excellent sleep to the sounds of nature. Make sure and visit the entire property - it goes on forever and the landscaping is gorgeous.

We stayed at the start of our Sri Lankan holiday. Hotel was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. Yoga lessons are definitely worth it and the food is very good. You feel like you are staying at somebody's house and overall it is very good value for money. Hope to stay again soon!

Dear Chris Thank you for your review, and so glad that you not only enjoyed the hotel, but also the yoga. We are most fortunate to have a local Sri Lankan teacher, who inspires people of all abilities to do yoga and to improve. This adds another dimension to the guests' stay here at KK. Come back and do some... More

A small boutique hotel near Galle about 3 hours drive from Colombo. A wonderful calm retreat where you can recharge your batteries after flying to Colombo. We spent 3 nights here before starting our tour of Sri Lanka. Galle and its World Heritage Fort is only about 15 minutes drive away but the hotel itself is surrounded by lush fields... More
