Honeymoon bliss

We spent a week at KK and loved every second of it. The staff in particular were amazing- genuine, friendly and so helpful. The food was absolutely delicious and varied- every dish we had was delicious. All of the activities the hotel had to offer were valuable experiences and kk on general was such a relaxing and beautiful place.

A hidden gem @ Sri Lanka

I stayed in this property last weekend and still i reminisce relaxation I had there,

On arrival duty manager welcomed us with garlands and escorted to the reception. Walk from entrance to the reception will re assure that you have chosen the best place to relax.

Heliconia villa was stunning with a nice outdoor bathroom and private pool. the bed was so comfortable you would not want to get up. All room amenities were great except the coffee, which they provided for French press.

At reception we met Henry who is working with property since pre-opening, I would like to thank henry, Aruna and Tharindu for their exceptional customer service, and care provided during my stay.

I would like to recommend this place for those who want to have a relaxing holiday.

Beautiful resort, amazing service

We stayed five nights at this beautiful resort. The minute the driver picked us up from our hotel in Colombo we knew we would be in for a treat. Salmon was our driver for most of our activities. We had a challenge to learn two Sinhalese words a day! Thank you Samon!
Our room was stunning. We stayed in the peacock room and our friend stayed in the Tamarind room. Both were large and decorated beautifully. Our room had two outside showers and a courtyard where you could see monkeys playing in the trees and peacocks wandering around the grounds. Our friends room had an enormous balcony which was great for afternoon drinks and watching the wildlife come to life.
We had an all inclusive package which included breakfast and a 3 course meal and activities. The meals were delicious and the menu changed every night. The menu catered for all tastes and of a high quality. The staff was attentive and friendly. The setting of the restaurant is lovely as it looks over the tea plantation and there is always a peacock , monkey, lizard or some wildlife to watch. Our friend was celebrating a significant birthday and they made her feel very special.
The activities were fabulous ranging from a cooking class, boat ride, visiting a tea plantation and visiting their sister property on the beach. We also enjoying relaxing by the pool, walking around the property and yoga in the pavilion. We arrange for a tuk tuk to take us to Galle for the day which is about 30 mins away. It was extremely hot and we were glad to return to our oasis in the hills.
Th resort was very quiet with only a few other rooms occupied. We loved our stay and highly recommend you spend some time here. Thank you to all the staff as you made our stay very special.
