Villa Pooja Kanda – Koggala 5 bedroom luxury villa, Sri Lanka Villa Pooja Kanda – Koggala 5 bedroom luxury villa, Sri Lanka
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.

    We had a most wonderful week in this beautiful villa. It has an charm and grace and the days flowed past far to quickly and gently. I am so grateful to all the staff for all their many efforts daily to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The beautiful flowers and cake which they provided for our daughters birthday made her special day so the more memorable. I don't normally do this type of holiday but I am certainly reconsidering this in the future. Many thanks to all.

    Pooja Kanda was the last stop in out holiday, we couldn't have chosen it better! The service was superb! The staff was so respectable and sympathetic and always aimed to servce us the best way. The food was outstandingly delicious, every meal was one to look forward to! The rooms were very comfortable were always very clean and tidy. The villa really felt like home. We were very appreciative to have experienced this wonderful, joyful environment, and we surely hope to return to this paradise. Sri Lanka is definitely a place to cherish and Pooja Kanda was certainly one of the highlights of our trip.

    We all had a lovely time at Pooja Kanda Villa. The food was absolutely delicious! The beach was lovely and we swam with gigantic turtles! We went to a turtle aquarian and the baby turtles were really cute! We also went on a boat trip and the islands were fantastic! The staff were really kind and we loved coming here. One of the best family holidays we have ever had. The staff at the villa were so attentive and looked after our every need. The food prepared by the Chef was out of this world, the best curries we have ever eaten! Such a great experience for a young family and a wonderful half way port between the UK and Australia to catch up with family. We wouldn't hesitate in returning to Pooja Kanda and we look forward to one day seeing you all again.

    We had a fantastic time at Pooja Kanda! The staff have all been so kind and sweet with the children. The food has been delicious and the Chef catered for all of our separate needs and wishes brilliantly. We were a mix of meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, dairy free and gluten-free!! Thank you also to Rob and Loku for looking after us so well. We would love to return one day.

    We had a lovely time @ Pooja Kanda. The service was excellent and the food was really tasty. We needed a special diet for one of our guests and it was catered for with a willingness and a smile. Thank you Loku, Rob and the rest of the staff. We will come back again.

    A fabulous place for family from London and Singapore to meet up for a special family holiday together - out of this world in so many ways - far from our normal lives in such a beautiful place with such friendly and efficient people looking after us, and delicious food to eat - chef Sunanda did us proud with a fantastic barbecue last night! We have all loved the pool, the monkeys, the dames on the lawn, the trips to Galle, Koggala Lake and the bike ride, as well as the time to do nothing. Thank you to everyone here for looking after us so brilliantly.

    What a wonderful time we had here at Pooja Kanda. It truly is a paradise here. The welcome and care of all the staff have been outstanding. We have had an unforgettable Christmas and New Year with amazing food and hospitality. It has been a wonderful reunion for our international family in magical Sri Lanka. Thank you so much. What a wonderful place! Not only is Villa Pooja Kanda breathtakingly beautiful, but the people who work here couldn't be kinder. They really made our stay extra special! I hope we come back one day! The extra effort that was out into the Christmas and New Years decoration really gave our holiday another element of wonder. Thank you. Great start to 2017!

    My second visit to Pooja Kanda and I couldn't wait to get back here. I loved that everything was the same - the monks chanting, and bread cart tunes, the monkies, kingfishers, and tiny birds. This time we discovered the peacocks. Go for a walk early morning or late afternoon (or tuk tuk). Turn right out of the gate, and keep walking straight through the villages, until you come to the paddy fields on your left....... about 20 minutes. There you will see beautiful peacocks and peahens. This place fills me with such joy. Thank you everyone for helping to make our stay here a paradise moment. Will miss the amazing feasts prepared for us by Chef Sunanda every day, and the lovely Villa staff.

    We had a lovely stay. The staff were attentive and always ready to help with a smile. We especially enjoyed the amazing meals prepared by Chef Sunanda. He shared his secret curry paste and even prepared extra portions for us to take home. Special thanks to Loku and Rob for helping arrange our numerous daily excursions - our first every visit to Sri Lanka was made even more special thanks to everyone at Villa Pooja Kanda. I will highly recommend my friends who plan to visit Sri Lanka - a wonderful country with beautiful people!

We will definitely recommend this lovely place to all our friends and acquaintances.

    We would like to thank all of the staff from Pooja Kanda for looking after us. From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. The staff were amazing and the chef brilliant.

  • December 30th, 2015 - January 2nd, 2016

    Totally amazing experience. Awesome staff, delicious food, lovely environment. The facility is magnificent. Like living luxurious with a djungle feeling monkies schreeching around the corner. I would suggest anybody visiting Sri Lanka to rent Pooja Kanda a couple of nights. All the best recommendations.

  • December 16th, 2015 - December 30th, 2015

    This second Sri Lankan holiday is easily of of our very best holidays ever! Thank you very much!! Pooja kanda is a luxurious villa in a beautiful setting. It is very well run by the whole team, supervised by Loku, who were all incredibility obliging, attentive and caring. A lot of effort was put into (apart from so many other things) making Pooja Kanda uninviting for mosquitoes which was much appreciated!! Sunanda and team prepared wonderful, delicious meals. His culinary skills included a memorable X'mas barbecue which included a parrot fish we caught!! Sunil added to the charm of the villa by being rather endearing, cheerful character. Monty (what we decided to call the resident monitor lizard) added to our enjoyment by just appearing on the lawn. We do miss him when he doesn't appear. A special thank you to the security guards who kept us safe. Laundry came back beautifully folded, thanks to Gilmda. Somalata was very special too!

    "Perfect Bachelors Party Weekend" We were a group of 10 who had come to Sri Lanka for my Bachelors Party. For the first time ever, I have booked a place online and found the place to be far better than the pictures posted on the Internet. Right from the time we entered Pooja Kanda we felt at home with the warm and courteous staff. The location just perfect, lush & regal. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about the Villa and its amenities in any way. Since we were celebrating my bachelors party at Pooja Kanda, we were having late night pool parties at the Villa. Special thanks to Sushant (Chef) and the house boys (Tharanga & Dickman) who put up with all our late night food requests. They made us feel at home with their everlasting smile and eagerness to make our stay comfortable. The food too was absolutely stunning (Sri Lankan Cuisine) with Sushant preparing Huge Spread's fit for the Royals! A HUGE Thanks to the Pooja Kanda Team for giving us a Memorable and Unforgettable Experience. P.S: We are already in the process of planning our next trip back to Pooja Kanda, hopefully by the year end. Cheers, Shyam Srinivas India

    We felt very much a part of village life even though we were perched well above the nearly out of sight homes. Loved the early morning chanting,mullahs calls to prayer,drumming,and morning fires. Watched the morning ritual of monkeys crashing through the trees on their way to a day out feeding and watched it all in reverse at dusk. Marvelled at the busy birds of all colours and laughed at the squirrels antics. Pooja Kanda was a paradise for us....lush and floral. The property was beautifully maintained and the staff delightful. We ate delicious Sri Lankan cuisine for breakfast,lunch and dinner. Tell the chef how you like it and give him his head. Can't wait to go back...Cheers Charmaine.

    Wonderful, and absolutely unforgettable. Coming with my numerous 'family' - nine of us altogether, from 3-year-old twins upwards - from the tensions of the Middle East where we live, this really was a bit of paradise on earth. It's almost too difficult to single out particular memories, but playing cricket in the garden is something we don't do every day in Arabia. (Thank you, Tharanga and all the staff, for this and so much else.) If we had the time and the resources, we would come back to Pooja Kanda every single year.

  • April 2nd, 2012 - April 9th, 2012

    We enjoyed it to Pooja Kanda, everything was perfect. The splendid villa, delicious cuisine carefully prepared by the chef and his team. Loku, the supervisor has organized a party for a birthday party with dancers and musicians, fireworks, BBQ, ..... unforgettable. Everything was done for our comfort and we really enjoyed! Thank you to Rob, the manager and his team (supervisor, cooks, gardeners, cleaning lady, Guardians) .... it was a dream for us and you've done! At another time perhaps, but with the kids because I think it will be paradise for them too! Thank you. Sylvie, Sophie, Joelle, JF, Benoit, Michel.
