About Villa Pooja Kanda
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.
