Kahanda Kanda is an award-winning boutique hotel perched on an idyllic hilltop amidst 12 acres of a lush, tea estate, 20 minutes from the historic fort town of Galle and overlooking the distant Koggala Lake. The hotel has nine spacious suites that offer plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Each is individually furnished with an eclectic blend of antiques and contemporary pieces handpicked by the owner, British interior design guru, George Cooper.
