The resort is a half hour drive from Galle up in the lush, green hills. We had Mango suite which had a balcony overlooking the tea plantation and trees beyond. It was wonderful being able to relax, read and watch monkeys playing and peacocks from our balcony. The rooms were comfortable and spacious with a four poster bed and mosquito... More

Me and my wife were at KK a few years ago for a friend's wedding and fell completely in love with the place. we've since visited and stayed at KK a couple of times and then finally got married there. Obviously, we think it's pretty special. It's a beautiful symphony. A perfect balance between a manicured and natural, picturesque landscape;... More

The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent... Suites are so relaxing .. Love the architecture and the furniture.. Every detail of it.. There are very friendly dogs around well... More

Thank you for your review of KK. I am somewhat surprised that you say the food is not great, since you only stayed one night and had dinner out! I am therefore assuming you are referring to the breakfast, which your husband has mentioned in his reviewing as being only ok! Hopefully we will get some further suggestions from him,... More

When you arrive you will be charmed by the beautiful boutique hotel style of the Kahanda Kanda: nice design, great garden, beautiful landscaping. We had the Dubu Suite which is the most beautiful & most expensive one of course! So at 400USD per night (and all the extra are quite expensive as well) you expect a very high quality service...

Thank you for your review of Kahanda Kanda. As the owner, it saddens me deeply that you were not happy with your stay in the hotel. Firstly I am sorry that you felt that the charge for the room was too much. We tried very hard to make your honeymoon as enjoyable as possible - we gave you a complimentary... More

Greeted like family, entertained like royalty and departed like old friends. Up market without being pretentious boutique hotel. The charismatic owner George Cooper and his team provide an excellent experience at this exquisitely styled plantation style hotel located approximately 20 minutes outside Galle in lush tropical surrounds. We stayed in the adjoining Tea and Garden suites, one of which had... More

This is a very special hotel. If, like us, you have spent 10 days travelling the hectic roads of Sri Lanka, then we can certainly vouch for the therapeutic effects of some R & R at KK, which comes in a complete package. The setting, the spectacular pool, the rooms, the food and most importantly staff who discretely are there... More

This was our 3rd of 4 stops on our Sri Lanka tour. As soon as we arrived we felt a sense of tranquillity. We had booked the Dubu suite, which was amazing but decided to move rooms to the Tamarind Suite the following night for the following reasons (even though Dubu is the largest and most expensive/private of them all):...

The steep steps on the entrance aren't very convenient, but a guy immediately ran to carry our bags. I guess to have such a view... More

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

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the trouble to write a review of your stay at KK. I am delighted that in the main you were extremely happy with your stay, and only saddened that you felt the food was up to three times what you had paid at Amangalla and Tea Trails. We believe in offering good fresh food,... More
