Kahanda Kanda features in Ampersand's Top 10 Boutique Hotels and our Top 10 Venues for a Wedding or Party

This stunning modern hotel in southern Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful and luxurious on the island.

Perched on a hilltop amidst 12 acres of its own lush, low lying tea plantation, striking 360-degree views unfold across velveteen lawns and the surrounding tea gardens, towards the jungle and distant Koggala Lake, just 20 minutes from Galle. Built as a series of pavilions joined by paths through gardens and lily ponds, it has ten double en-suite bedrooms, most of which stand alone. Each suite is individually furnished with an eclectic blend of antiques and contemporary pieces handpicked by the owner, British interior designer, George Cooper. Three of the suites come with a private gardens and a plunge pool.

Throughout the hotel there is a serene and private ambiance which invites relaxation; read a book in the enormous living room or on your private veranda, take a leisurely dip in the 22-metre infinity pool, have a massage, work out in the gym or practice yoga. The dedicated and charming team offer the epitome of five-star service, and the internationally trained chef creates simple fusion dishes and classic Sri Lankan curries.

Kahanda Kanda’s sister hotel is the newly opened KK Beach. The two hotels, although quite different from one another, work in conjunction with each other and guests staying at either hotel will be offered a free shuttle service between the two.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.
Diane Arbus

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
