I booked this place looking for a week of total relaxation and that's exactly what I got. The setting is unbelievably picturesque and quiet. The lake view is simply breathtaking.
The luxury room was spotlessly clean and the staff so helpful. The restaurant cannot be praised enough as they have excellent chefs - the lemongrass prawns have to be tried.
I spent my days either paddling on the lake in one of the courtesy canoes or lounging by the pool switching between a book and admiring the view.
I was joined throughout the week by other family members who all ended up extending their stays, and like me, they will be back, again and again. Thank you to all at Kalla Bongo for making my vacation time with you so fabulous and restful.

Room Tip: One of the 5 lake front

We found this hotel on our way back up to Colombo from Galle. It's away from the business and dirtiness of Hikkaduwa town and boasts a stunning view over the lake. The restaurant is also absolutely incredible although on the pricey side. Great hotel for couples wanting relaxation. Owners also very hospitable.

What a superb small hotel. Ideal for a short break from Colombo. Close to the bustle of Hikkaduwa yet ideally situated with wonderful views over the lake. Changing colours and ripple of the water is blissfully peaceful. A great pool, and excellent. restaurant.The curry and rice is a delight. And very helpful staff lead by Chandrana. It is a superb find and we will be back.

Peaceful, relaxed environment. Excellent service and a friendly management/staff. Delicious food. We were on a company day out and had a really good time at Kalla Bongo. Everything was perfect and beyond our expectations. No hesitations on recommending this place to anyone who will want to have a memorable travel experience. So far, this is one of the best places i have ever been to. I Seriously love this place and will visit again for sure........
