We had a lovely family reunion at Pooja Kanda. The staff were all really lovely and the chef was very accommodating with various requests for different dietary requirements (no dairy, no meat etc). The villa itself is in a peaceful location with monkeys in the trees and only a 15 or so minute walk to the beach. The pool was...

Standing on top of the hill towering over its neighbours, Pooja Kanda truly is an impressive sight as you come up to the entrance! We were greeted by the Villa Manager Rob, an engaging chap with a long history in the region, who was more than happy to take us through all of the facilities of this glorious mansion in...

About the neighbourhood
Villa Pooja Kanda is located a few kilometres inland from the busy market town of Habaraduwa whose extensive sandy beach extends eastwards towards Koggala. The villa sits at the top of small rise around the base of which is a scattering of village homes. Aged trees and tropical plants characterise the large garden and provide respite for the many birds and wildlife that come to visit. The nearest beach is at Habaraduwa, however for the best swimming and for a wider range of facilities Dalawella and Unawatuna on the main road towards Galle are much better, especially for families with children.
