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!

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

Just got back to London, cold wet and miserable, exhaused after a flight via Dubia, and a Business Class Lounge bigger than my village in Ireland. My third visit to Kahanda Kanda, George Cooper's magical hilltop retreat outside Galle. I'm not wasting my time writing about cleanliness etc.... of course it was, spotless, even the Monkeys and Lizzards look brushed.... More

We stayed 4 day at Kahanda Kanda recenty. It really is a very special place, situated on a hill overlooking a small tea estate and jungle. A Tuk Tuk ride into Galle takes about 30 minutes. All the accommodation is very tastefully done. If you are travelling with family the Garden and Tea rooms share a balcony and have a... More

Just as we arrived at the hotel reception after climbing up the stairs past a sun yellow wall onto a stunning vista of landscaped gardens and a gazebo beside a serene poolside, a peacock 'honked' atop the wall. It was as if the welcome had been timed to perfection. We knew then that we were in for something special. The... More

My girlfriend Kim and I first visited Kahanda Kanda (KK) in November 2014 as a surprise trip for Kim's birthday. We loved our stay so much we re-booked within 48 hours of returning, with a plan to go back there over Chinese New Year (18-22 February 2015). We've just returned form that trip and we're already thinking of our next... More

Just returned from spending my Birthday at KK. All I can say is everything was amazing. Beautiful room, we stayed in the Mango Suite, the view over the jungle was stunning. We sat for hours watching the wild life, it was like a picture book. The staff set me a most beautiful table for my Birthday meal, they were truly... More
