Inland from Galle
Sri Lanka, Galle
Info : Kahanda Kanda
Nestled in the hills around Galle, Kahanda Kanda invites you to experience a private vision of tropical perfection. The villa was originally built in 2000, and is now an exclusive boutique hotel, with seven spacious suites offering seclusion and luxury. Each suite contains a large and comfortable living space, with natural light and fresh air creating a peaceful atmosphere. Glass windows in abundance frame the gorgeous natural surroundings: 12 acres of tea plantation estate, with lakes, lily ponds, bougainvillea, and lush green gardens.
The comfortable modern Living Pavilion is bordered by lily ponds. The Dining Pavilion leads to the infinity pool, polished in dark green and shaded by bougainvillea. Meals are served in the Dining Pavilion, overlooking the tea estate, or by the pool.
For the ultimate in luxury, choose the master suite, known as the Peacock Suite. Exquisite lake views, an elegant private courtyard, and a four poster bed crafted with ebony are some of the luxuries that this special suite affords. Guests can enjoy two outdoor showers in the Hellaconia Suite’s private courtyard, as well as two generous double beds. The grand old Javanese Joglo house is known as Dubu, featuring masterfully carved ornate ceilings and walls made of strong timber. Two bathrooms and a private pool make the Dubu Suite a particularly indulgent choice. Set amongst the tea plantations is Auraylia, known for its spacious veranda, perfect for spotting the exotic birdlife that inhabits the surroundings.
Haute cuisine is a special experience at Kahanda Kanda, consisting of Sri Lankan and Thai specialties, and innovative fusion dishes. Delicious three course dinners and two course lunches are served whenever you like. Dishes use locally sourced, fresh ingredients, with vegetables, fruits and herbs being grown on-site. The expert chefs regularly reveal their top secret cuisine strategies to guests in the popular Sri Lankan and Thai cooking courses on the estate.
