How to Get There

A must stay place in Galle

This was the first night stay of our long weekend vacations. Aruna and the reservation team gave us a very good impression of the hotel from the reservation process itself. Excellent check-in procedure. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food and beverage quality was excellent. Excellent room and bathroom amenities

Wonderful stay at this KK resort

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Kahanda Kanda for 7 nights recently. We had purchased our package with Luxury Escapes to get a taste of Sri Lanka and enjoy some relaxation. From the beginning we enjoyed our stay here. The 'Garden room' is beautiful and spacious and the grounds stunning. What made the stay for us though were the wonderful staff at KK. Everyone is so lovely and you can tell all the staff really take pride in their work and genuinely care for the guests. We had Wajira pick us up from the airport and take us on a day trip to Udawalawe National Park, and on the included boat trip, he is an asset to the team at KK, most friendly and helpful and safe driver. Our room itself was just fabulous, Rohan and his team take upmost care is their room service, and everything is just perfect when you get back to your room after breakfast. Despite some issues with the aircon in our room, Rohan was patient and did his best to help us with the temperamental unit. Apart from these two gentlemen, all the other staff who looked after us we great, food and beverage service was amazing and the duty managers took care of our activity requirements. We also visited the sister resort KK Beach and found the staff there to be the same. We would definitely stay at KK again should we be lucky enough to pass through the Galle part of Sri Lanka again. Mr Cooper if you are reading this, your staff are amazing and more than deserving of a big Christmas bonus this year! :)

This was the second hotel on our trip after the hills above Kandy and we had been recommended Kahanda kanda by friends so were very much looking forward to our stay here which was just under a week.
We went for a private villa with a huge walled garden and private infinity pool which was heavenly. The villa very very spacious, well decorated, big comfy bed , massive modern new bathroom with big bath tub seperate shower , double sinks etc and a super outdoor shower too !
The restaurant and bar area are lovely and full of big deep sofas full of cushions ...
The staff are great and super professional but relaxed, but the oldest member of staff was our favourite , Henry. Lovely Henry who’s been there since the beginning and is so sweet and genuinely friendly and obliging.
The chefs , great and willing to adapt the menu to our taste. We got them to get fresh fish from the market a couple of times and cook it for us which was delicious .
We met George , the owner a couple of times and he is extremely charming and professional running one of the best boutique hotels in Sri Lanka , in our opinion and we are fussy!
