Kumbukgaha Villa is stylish private hideaway in a peaceful rural setting surrounded by wilderness and paddy fields where wild peacocks and elephants roam freely. Within this secluded setting are just seven comfortable villas, complete with king size beds, crisp cotton linen, air-conditioning, hot water, a forest pool and an open dining pavilion. At Kumbukgaha Villa, you will be served by a small team of friendly, professional staff who will take care of your every need, be it planning your meals or helping with local excursions. Our kitchen will literally cook only for you - always with fresh locally sourced supplies often supplemented by organic vegetables from our home garden. With no pre-planned meal times or crowded breakfast buffets, you get to decide when, what and how often you would like to dine - after all, you will be on holiday! If you plan to explore Sri Lanka's fabulous ancient cities, Kumbukgaha Villa is an ideal base to travel from. The main cultural sites, the Sigiriya World Hertitage Site, Pidurangala rock and cave temple and the historic Dambulla Cave Temple are all a short drive away. The ancient cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa are an hours drive away and are ideal for day excursions. The Minneriya National Park, famous for the 'gathering' of hundreds of elephants, is a short 30 min drive away and is perfect for an afternoon safari. You could also spend some quiet time exploring the embankments of ancient agricultural lakes, stroll along the paddy fields, chat to the friendly people of the village or just sit out in the veranda and enjoy a cup of Pure Ceylon Tea. What ever your choose to do, we guarantee total peace, tranquility and relaxation at Kumbukgaha Villa. We look forward to welcoming you soon!

We stayed four nights at this secluded and isolated lodge. Accommodation was comfortable and for those who like their toilet and bathrooms outside, quite novel. The only downside to this arrangement was the presence of mosquitos. This tended to put you off visiting the toilet in

We stayed for two nights and loved every moment. The room was very clean and spacious, it had a superb view from the double doors at the end of the room. The open air bathroom was a lovely surprise. The staff were very polite and helpful and the food was lovely. We were overall

We stayed for three nights whilst visiting the Sigiriya area and were made to feel very welcome by the helpful staff. The villas are comfortable with good A/C with outdoor bathrooms. These of course do not have A/C and are prone to mosquitos during the night. Otherwise we had

We just completed a two night stay here, and I cannot say enough positive about it. The villa was very lovely and very spacious. The outdoor bathroom was a dream. And the staff makes this place even more special. The food was excellent, even if I did over-eat on both

Hi everyone, we are currently in the final stages of adding 2 familiy villas on one corner of the property. This is within a fenced of area so guests really do not see much of the work. The good news is that we hope to complete all work by end April and what's left is all soft work like interior finishes and painting. The construction was in response to the regular requests we receive from families and travel groups for connected rooms. So we decided to add two Family Villas and its seems they will come out looking great! A big Thank You to all our guests who have responded to the question. We hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Chandi Villa Owner

We were there in early Feb. They are expanding with a few new villas, but there was no disruption from the work while we were there for 2 nights. That said, we were mostly gone during the day, though one afternoon stopped back by the property from 9:45 until 1'ish, again no noise. They may be in a new phase of work with more noise now. This is a unique boutique property, which I assume you realize frim reading the reviews. If you are looking to get off the beaten path, as we were, you should enjoy your time here - we found the food delicious and serene atmosphere very enjoyable. If you are looking for a resort type property with all of the amenities, etc, this is probably not the right choice! Safe travels where ever your journey leads!
