We stayed at Kadju house for a week in early October last year, as the main leg of our honeymoon. Decided to share our experiences with others since my wife and I cant stop reminiscing about our our wonderful and restful time at Kadju House. I had been to Sri Lanka previously and knew that the beaches further south from Galle towards Tangalle got better that the ones further north. But I did not expect that we would be getting such a marvelous bit of beach at Seenimodra! Its relatively private, catering to a handful of private villlas, and just moments away connect by a few steps down to sea level. The house is positioned in such a way that you get spectacular views of the Indian Ocean along with hearing its calming sound track!
I believe the website other comments on tripadvisor were helpful in helping us decide that this would be our honeymoon venue. After all we were looking for something special in terms of comfort, style and beauty... and not least somewhere private! Kadju House delivered on all those in spades. But what we did not expect was the warmth and caring of the staff. Each one, from the cook, to the bearer and Keerti who mans the spa made our stay feel special and pampered. I love curries and my wife only eats fish, so we were in heaven! Only thing to mention here is that alcohol is difficult and expensive to come by, so do stock up at the Duty Free on arrival. Also get your own coffee if you are very particular like myself. The staff cater to your needs and whims so the most challenging yet rewarding part of the day was deciding the lunch and dinner menu for the day over breakfast (breakfast menu was done over dinner the night before and was combination of exotic fruits for my wife and sri lankan delicacies for myself). The we would decide our spa treatment for the day and make sure we were by the beach in the hours leading to to sunrise. My favorite time was the day was dawn, worth getting up a six in the morning for. We also hired a yoga instructor who elevated the zen vibe.
Getting to Kadju is relatively easy from Colombo, but do try to take sea plane one way if you can. Terrific views!
