We traveled with our 2 kids age 13 and 10. We all really enjoyed our stay at Kalla Bongo. I was hesitant about staying at the lake instead of the beach but I know we made the right decision. We had so much fun canoeing and waterskiing in the lake and hanging out in the pool. It was so nice to stay in a smaller resort where we didn't have to worry about the kids being loud and disturbing anyone. The food was excellent, the rooms were very comfortable and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely recommend the resort to friends and family visiting Sri Lanka in the future!

We went for a relaxing break and that was exactly what we got. The location of the hotel is beautiful, the rooms were comfortable and the service was excellent. Melvin and his team were extremely helpful in all respects. They booked tuctucs for the short journey to Hikkaduwa as well as for longer trips to the boat safari, Galle and the National park for very reasonable rates. The food at the restaurant was delicious. We had a bed and breakfast option which was great, with a variety of options from fruit to breads and eggs etc. we would definitely stay there again if we were to visit the same area of Sri Lanka.

It was beyond my imagination , I saw the images in different website but when I saw the resort I found the real beauty and fabulous . Don't miss the food (snacks , main-course ,drinks) . This resort is close to Hikkaduwa by tuk tuk.
Melvin is one of the most amazing people in the world as a owner of this resort and he is working so hard to make sure everything is perfect and you spend wonderful times in this piece of heaven .
Good luck Melvin and your nice team, hope to see you again .

Kalla Bongo is a great hotel . It's relaxed and the restaurant is super. The Kalla bongo (prawns)special is our favorite.The sunset is really amazing when you are sipping on a nice fresh arrack cocktail, and looking at the lake.
The service is good and our compliments fot the staff and special for the owner Melvin, and also the manager Chandana.

It sounds like a cliche, but I cannot lie about it: It is Paradise! Breathtaking view, excellent food, clean and nice rooms, friendly and service minded personel and manager/owner!
I cannot come up with a reason not visiting the Kalla Bongo again and again!!
