We loved Kahanda Kanda. A beautiful property in gorgeous lush surroundings. Immaculate bedrooms and super stylist. The service was good and we were looked after well but compared to even the Aman hotels where we stayed and Cape Weligama, the food here is astronomically expensive. The portions were large so on one evening we asked to share one person's portion... More

I visited Kahanda Kanda in March with my fiancée. We had a wonderful time, and were truly impressed with the suites, their attention to detail and overall luxury. The accommodations were only the tip of the iceberg with KK. The staff is what truly made it special. They go out of your way to making sure everything you need is... More

We just left Kahanda Kanda and spent lovely 6 days at this delightful retreat. The very large estate is offering a splendid stay away from the buzz of city life and is located inland, just outside of Galle which complements with history, a restored Fort and beaches nearby. The tranquil and tropical modern Boutique Hotel provides utmost privacy with some... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Kahanda Kanda for an entire week for an Escape to Shape trip. The property is beautiful and well designed sitting on a hill overlooking the Sri Lankan jungle where monkeys and wild peacocks are regularly seen and heard. The villas and common spaces are tasteful and each has unique touches that make it... More

A seamless blend of modern and rustic, all on the grounds of a tropical paradise! This was by far the best part of an overall fantastic Sri Lankan holiday. We stayed in the Dubu Suite, and without hesitation would choose that again on our return. Extremely spacious, fully equipped with modern amenities, a super-sized plunge pool, beautiful lounging areas both... More

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
