Welcome to
Villa Pooja Kanda

Perched on a lush hilltop, Villa Pooja Kanda is a tranquil five-bedroom hideaway near Koggala, ten minutes inland from Sri Lanka’s golden southern beaches. Majestic, spacious and private, Villa Pooja Kanda is an idyllic haven for families and groups of friends.

Wide pillared verandas, cool wraparound balconies, arched doorways and lofty beamed ceilings characterise this serene and restful Dutch-colonial style villa. The lush tropical garden surrounding the house is enlivened by visits from inquisitive monkeys high up in the trees.

The villa has a warm and helpful staff team and comes with an inviting swimming pool, an air-conditioned TV Room, a library bursting with books and loads of lounging space.

The layout

Spread across two floors of a charming Dutch-colonial style building, Villa Pooja Kanda has five bedrooms – two of which are at ground level – and offers generous living and dining space, including an air-conditioned TV room, a library and an equipped kitchen.  Each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom and shares views of the garden through graceful arched doors.  The ground-floor living areas spill effortlessly onto a deep fan-cooled veranda that breezily wraps around the front of the house and is furnished with rattan loungers.

The rooms

Villa Pooja Kanda’s five bedrooms are all air conditioned and furnished with romantic four-poster beds (king-size in all but one room) dressed in the crispest cotton sheets and canopied by soft mosquito nets.  The spacious ground-floor master bedroom and connecting queen-bedded guestroom open onto the rear veranda and are suitable for families.  Both benefit from contemporary bathrooms finished in smooth terrazzo and fitted with rain showers (the master ensuite also has a freestanding bathtub).

On the first floor, accessed via a winding staircase, are three further guestrooms encircled by a balcony walkway.  Light and airy, these bedrooms also come with contemporary ensuite bathrooms with hot water showers.  The largest of them sits at the top of the stairs and includes an anteroom that can be furnished with a cot or a single bed (up to two extra beds are available for children for no additional charge).
