EXPLORE
Pooja Kanda in Sinhalese means ‘hill of worship’ and this five-bedroom villa is indeed an idyllic temple of tranquility. Designed in Dutch-colonial style, the villa is majestic and spacious, wrapped with verandas and balconies upstairs and down. Calming interiors spill seamlessly onto the garden and ease you gently into a state of relaxation and renewal.

THE VILLA

Pooja Kanda in Sinhalese means ‘hill of worship’ and this five-bedroom villa is indeed an idyllic temple of tranquility. Designed in Dutch-colonial style, the villa is majestic and spacious, wrapped with verandas and balconies upstairs and down. Calming interiors spill seamlessly onto the garden and ease you gently into a state of relaxation and renewal.

Set in two acres of private gardens bursting with crimson heliconia and blushing bougainvillea, the villa is incredibly serene. Languish on rattan daybeds on the veranda or pluck a book from the library, lie back on the cushioned loungers beside the swimming pool and let your worries melt away. Children will be kept happy with endless rounds of hide and seek in the garden, a game of cricket on the front lawn perhaps, or a competition to count the monkeys swinging through the branches above. The villa is well-equipped for families and the cosy TV room is perfect for those rare rainy days. Our staff team will ensure you feel very much at home and want for nothing. At the end of the day, sip freshly concocted sundowners until the evening sky turns a deep indigo blue and then enjoy some of our chef’s home cooking – sure to be a highlight of your stay.

Villa Pooja Kanda’s location is blissfully secluded, yet the region’s picturesque beaches are less than ten minutes’ drive away. The UNESCO-certified Dutch fort of Galle – a living museum – serene Koggala Lake, lowland tea and cinnamon plantations, turtle hatcheries, spice gardens and a medley of great restaurants and shops are also close by.

Location

Pooja Kanda sits on the top of a hill near Koggala and the south-coast market town of Habaraduwa, ten minutes’ inland from the beach.  Famous for accommodating the celebrated Sri Lankan author, Martin Wickramasinghe (who has an interesting museum dedicated to him in town), Koggala has a fine stretch of beach and is renowned for its enchanting lagoon.  Here, rich jungle spills onto a meandering expense of water traversed by fishermen leaving nothing but soft ripples in their wake.  A boat ride to spice gardens, bird-filled islands and Buddhist temples is the best way to familiarise yourself with these sensational surroundings and be absorbed by local life around the lake. Galle’s seventeenth-century Dutch fort – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – is a 20-minute drive away.  The fort’s narrow cobbled streets are home to splendid colonial buildings, tiny cafes, churches, boutiques and museums whilst its mighty grass-tufted ramparts are the place to be for superb seaside sunsets.

Actives - Culture - Friends

Your villa supervisor has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will help arrange transport and make any bookings required. Do also ask the staff about the local area. Many of them live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Sri Lankan life.
In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of Villa Pooja Kanda

Head to Koggala or Habaraduwa beach for a long walk along seemingly endless golden sands. Take a late afternoon boat trip atop the glorious Koggala Lagoon to look for birds, visit spice gardens, watch fishermen and experience the sun setting over the water whilst meandering this peaceful waterway. The late Martin Wickramasinghe, a famous Sri Lankan author, was once a resident of Koggala. You can now visit his old home in town, which has been made into an interesting folk museum.

and so much more ….
