‘Boutique Originality, Intimate Rural Retreat’
The outstandingly picturesque Kahanda Kanda sits amidst a working tea estate with palm fringed jungle and views over Koggala Lake. Accommodation is in individual suites that offer original antiques, artwork and quirky features as well as generous proportions and mostly standalone buildings. This escape for the senses has a spa, dream dining, outstanding personalised service and an interesting selection of activities should you choose to supplement the tranquil grounds, pools and wildlife-watching. As this is a place of peace and tranquillity it restricts visitors to over 12’s only.
In Our Opinion'We love the panoramic views and the great choice of activities close-by; close to the ocean you can even go whale watching! The fact that Kahanda Kanda is on a tea estate gives visitors a feeling of the real Sri Lanka - truly beautiful.'
