Kahanda Kanda

Set amidst the palm fringed jungle and tea plantations of southern Sri Lanka, Kahanda Kanda is a hidden gem where culture, wellness and luxury combine. Our boutique hotel in Sri Lanka offers 12 individually designed villas (5 with private pools) to relax and unwind, just a short tuk-tuk ride from the UNESCO world heritage site Galle Fort.

Our bespoke villas are inspired by local culture, featuring elegant art and antiques within each of the spacious rooms and gardens - a sanctuary where guests can indulge in serenity, privacy and personalised five-star service.

KK is fifteen minutes inland from the south coast of Sri Lanka, so ideal for exploring the nearby beaches or visiting Galle Fort or some of the many other activities available. Or you could just lie by the pool and read a book – the choice is yours!
