A shiny new hotel which opened its doors in December 2016, KK Beach is a contemporary and stylish beachfront hotel. Just 12km from historic Galle and perched on west side of Habaraduwa, the golden sand beaches stretch out either side as far as the eye can see. With six stunning suites KK Beach effortlessly combines chic affordability with comfortable accommodation and delicious cuisine, and given the intimate size of the hotel, each guest is guaranteed an extremely high level of personal service. The continuing attention to detail can be seen throughout the hotel, especially in the artwork which has been commissioned from local Sri Lankan artists, and all the paintings are for sale.
The restaurant serves food using only organic ingredients from the estate and the freshest local produce to create a simple yet sumptuous menu of fusion dishes and classic Sri Lankan curries. Guests will be able to partake in cookery and yoga classes, and surfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, cycling, whale watching, deep sea fishing and boat trips on Koggala Lake are also available.
This hotel is the second from award winning connoisseur, George Cooper, who built up an international reputation with the Ampersand favourite, Kahanda Kanda. The two hotels, although quite different from one another, will work in conjunction with each other and guests staying at either hotel will be offered a free shuttle service between the two.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
