About the neighbourhood
Surangana Villa is situated on top of a hill, secluded safe and very private. It looks out over the paddy fields towards Kogalla Lake. We chose this spot for it’s mesmerizing views, beauty and peacefulness. Harumalgoda, the area immediately around the property, is made up of rice paddy lands, cinnamon plantations, low country tea plantations & roaming buffallo. The seaside is 2km from the villa - an advantage as it’s close enough for visits to the wonderful beaches and far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main road. As this is a rural property you will get visits from monkeys, chipmunks, frogs, iguanas and all kinds of weird and wonderful birds and animals. Many people have said it’s like having your own zoo at your doorstep!
Getting around
Manoj the villa manager can arrange transfers and Tuk Tuks anytime you want to travel (which are fun and easy to get around in) with regular drivers we know & trust. Quotes can be disucssed up front & you could book a driver for the day who will wait while you shop/eat/visit beaches etc.
Manoj can also arrange air-conditioned cars or people carriers for larger groups - or longer trips for your comfort.

There are daily internal flights on Cinnamon Air by sea plane to various parts of the island - like Kandy, Colombo, Nuwara Eliya etc. It's definitely an exciting adventure taking off from Kogalla lake which is only a 10 minute drive from villa (Manoj can arrange) so it is easy to pop to see various parts of the island if you wish.
Car not needed

Manoj our villa manager can arrange airport transfers from Columbo airport at a cost of around 70 or 80 uk pounds depending on exchange rate. Surangana Villa is about 1.5hrs drive from Columbo and 15 minutes drive from the historic city of Galle.
