Nestled into a small tea plantation on the outskirts of Galle, Kahanda Kanda was an indulgent hide-away from the chaos of the city. It was a car ride back to town, but the opulence and facilities offered by the Cooper family's beautiful hotel tipped the balance between staying in town or travelling into town. My daughter and I were thoroughly...

Amazing hotel, beautiful views . Staff superb attentive but unobtrusive. Our lodge was to die for, every comfort catered for. Breakfasts delicious and freshly prepared. Evening meal was variable. Our first meal was probably a 7 out of 10, the second 8.5/10 similarly the last.

I have made several visits here whenever I stay in Galle each winter. It is the most perfect retreat on a rise overlooking palm trees and tea plantations. Service and food are exceptional - unmissable for the discerning visitor.

Everything is perfect: the place, the hotel, the service (really amazing!), the accommodations (extremely clean) & the food (breakfast, lunch, dinner). We had the Hibiscus suite which is extraordinary: infinity pool on the tea plantations. A lot of activities are available. I would not recommend the tea plantation tour (too much touristic, not really genuine), the little boat trip is...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of KK, and for the very flattering comments. Getting such positive feedback makes this all so worthwhile.

Lunch with 10 friends and a pre lunch chat with Mr Cooper made our return visit to this very special property a sheer delight. Fish cakes that weren't chewy,delicious fish and lime tart all washed down with good wine. What more could one want in paradise.

Having flown half way around the world (from Boston) to spend 5 nights at an untested destination was a leap of faith - and a leap worth taking! George Cooper and his team created an experience that was memorable, personalized, differentiated, and well worth the many hours of travel. While the remainder of my review speaks to the resort itself,...

I stayed here as a group of 6 after slumming it at surf camp in weligama. We accommodated at the very last minute and communication from Aruna was fantastic. We walked in unshowered and unkept but still greeted with big smiles, floral garlands and fresh coconut. We booked dubu (couple), hellaconia (couple) and mango (two friends) - everyone was blown...

Truthfully, we have stayed at the fabulous KK many times, for us this has almost become our home in Beautiful Sri Lanka. The KK is the perfect retreat. The scenery from the elevated position of the KK is breathtaking, and dining on exquisite food in the open restaurant at night is magical, it's no surprise that it's a favourite honeymoon...

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in July 2016. It's the wet season but we live in the UAE so a bit of rain was most welcome! It's only 4 hours' flight from the UAE so the perfect short break distance for rain- and greenery-deprived ex-pats. Kahanda Kanda has gone straight into our top 3 hotels ever...
