Villa Pooja Kanda

1 review

Superb colonial villa in Koggala in Sri Lanka, near Galle, with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, a lush garden, swimming pool, barbecue and park view


The Home

Situated majestically on a flourishing hillock bathed in rich vegetation, Pooja Kanda is a tranquil five bedroom hideaway that’s just five minutes inland from the beach at Koggala on Sri Lanka’s golden Southern coast.

Wide, pillared verandahs, cool wrap-around balconies, arched doorways and lofty beamed ceilings characterise this serene Dutch colonial-style villa which was unmistakably designed for relaxation. Pooja Kanda’s tranquillity is further enhanced by a garden bursting with birdsong and enlivened by visits from
inquisitive monkeys high up in the trees.

The house is fully staffed and comes with a turquoise swimming pool with lounging ledge, a wireless internet connection, an air conditioned TV room and a fully equipped kitchen.

As the driveway winds its way up through an ever-increasing jungle to the top of a verdant hillock just inland from the coast at Koggala, you know you’re going to be in for a treat once you reach the summit. Slowly emerging through billowing vegetation resonating with vivacious birdcall you’re greeted at the top by a
statuesque building fringed by crimson heliconia that sensationally frames the gorgeous garden views.

Rising up taller than the building itself, trees lift their leafy branches towards the sky and provide a playground for the monkeys that visit every morning and night, keen to meet their human neighbours.

Below, the two-acre garden completely encircles the five bedroomed house and envelopes the swimming pool, rising up finally towards a rocky outcrop that’s perfectly placed for surveying the scene.

The property’s natural setting is indeed a temple of relaxation and serenity, and its graceful interiors an inner sanctum of calm. Even the most overworked minds will be eased gently into a state of renewal in no time at all, assisted along the way by a staff team intent on making you feel very much at home.

Pooja Kanda is perfect for families and groups seeking a secluded base close to Galle. Lie back on the shallow pool ledge and let your worries drift away under the meditative gaze of the elephant god Ganesh, or find your own peaceful hideaway in one of the trio of furnished alcoves within the expansive wraparound balcony upstairs.

Maison extraordinaire, service de très haut standing. Sophie a été une parfaite interlocutrice. Veiller à prévenir les clients de la possibilité de réserver un chauffeur avec l'organisme local.
