Stay at Kahanda Kanda

This boutique hotel is comprised of 12 gorgeous suites set in the palm fringed jungle and tea plantations of Southern Sri Lanka, mostly with their own private pools. All of the suites are freestanding villas with open-air living and dining pavilions to maximise breezes and views over the gardens to Koggala Lake. The interiors are decorated with artwork and artefacts from across Asia such as stately teak furniture and blue-white china, but also have contemporary touches. Each room is individually designed and extremely comfortable and three of the villas have their own pools.

The hotel has plenty of facilities, a swimming pool, a yoga pavilion with a resident yoga teacher, a spa for massages, a fitness suite and television room with beanbags.

Dining takes place in the atmospheric, open-aired dining pavilion or it’s glass-balconied extension. It’s also possible to arrange private dining. The daily-changing set menus for lunch and dinner always include a Sri Lankan option, as well as international fusion cuisine.

Judy & Chris

We had an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka. All the hotels, transfers, trips and experiences arranged by True Travel were perfect and all the arrangements went seamlessly according to plan. Our guide and driver, Thusita, was a really nice man and so knowledgeable, going out of his way to make sure that we experienced many of the Sri Lankan foods and traditions as possible. I would recommend True Travel to anyone especially if you have not visited the country before.

Four-star properties which offer enough amenities for a comfortable stay. We may offer these for a more price-competitive option, or in more remote areas which don't offer the most luxe hotels.


These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
