A fantastic place for the soul to relax and the mind to wonder! Build up in the sky in middle of a tea plantation Kahanda Kanda offers a breathtaking view, a lovely pool & a lots & lot of privacy in middle of a peaceful environment. We loved the location, the interior design, the swimming pool and the food.

My husband and I had the most wonderful time at Kahanda Kanda. We stayed in the Hibiscus villa which was so beautiful - the attention to detail in its design was amazing, and the private pool was a great size. The staff make the place really special - they go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Our driver...

The hotel is lovely and private... it's set up in a way that even if there are other guests you hardly interact with anyone which is perfect if you are looking for a romantic/secluded vacation! The staff are very accommodating and I love that you can request all meals to be served in your room... Chef cooks good sri lankan...

Stayed two nights at Kahanda Kanda and found the whole place wonderfully relaxing. This was the perfect antidote to a long haul flight from the UK and the Hibiscus Suite comes highly recommended - essentially your own villa within the hotel. Loved the tranquility and isolation of the place. Some may find it too isolated but this was the start...

We recently visited Sri Lanka and one of our stops was Galle where we stayed at Kahanda Kanda. Overall, a very good experience. Areas for improvement - food was just okay - not fantastic; concierge/ manager was not that attentive, in fact he forgot our requests and we needed to follow up three times (also, did not appear that sincere)....

Advertised as a real luxury holiday the KK didn't disappoint at all. Beautiful setting and we were based with a private pool in the Hibiscus Suite. Lovely setting and spent a lot of time in the pool soaking up the weather and the views. The accommodation was first class. Very spacious and well planned room that was always a pleasure...

My wife and I stayed in the Hibiscus chalet for a couple of memorable days after getting a solid last second deal on Trip Advisor. Bottom line is the place has made me reconsider all my previous reviews of other hotels as they have set the bar. Place is just pure luxury. The grounds are gorgeous. The design is beautiful....
