Our visit to Halala Kanda started at Colombo airport where we were met by, a very friendly driver all organised by the property. The house is a two-hour drive from Colombo airport an easy drive on the new expressway and the journey was painless.

Halalala Kanda is a magnificent colonial mansion set on a couple of acres of beautiful gardens. The property is absolutely spectacular and exceeded all our expectations. It has been lovingly and creatively renovated to bring it bang up to date, while sensitively considering its past splendour. This property is large; it could easily accommodate two or three families without people tripping over each other. There are many spaces to sit and relax in the house, many more outside and with such a large swimming pool

The grounds really are stunning and with so many spaces, everyone can relax and enjoy taking in the ambience. The house comes complete with a full staff, and to ensure you are very well taken care of. Living areas are plentiful and extremely comfortable. Bedrooms spacious with some of the most comfortable beds in the business, you will sleep well here.

The Swimming pool is beautiful and offers a wonderful view over the lush valley, plentiful loungers and a Kabana, so everyone has somewhere to hang out. The house has a full kitchen, a great chef and everyone’s dietary requirements can be accommodated (we travelled with our vegetarian daughter and her friend) and the quality and variety of food is outstanding. The property is within easy reach of the peaceful southern beaches and a short drive to Galle. The surrounding countryside is really beautiful, paddy fields at the bottom of the drive and some lovely scenic walks, just down the road. The villas facilities are first rate and the dining and living areas all extremely comfortable and can accommodate quite large parties. The villa would lend itself well for a wedding, company retreat or large family gathering.

At night the stars are spectacular, and if you walk further into the garden, the fireflies are quite enchanting. The almost magical atmosphere will particularly charm children and adults alike. The villa has such a relaxing feel for such a grand property. We were all extremely sad to leave (but will be back). Halala Kanda really is heaven and the owners have created something very special indeed– highly recommended.

Stayed with a group of friends whilst watching cricket in Galle. Very classy villa set in a beautiful location. Tastefully finished with fantastically attentive staff offering a wide variety of culinary options. Beach and nightlife of Mirissa only 10minutes away a significant plus.
