About Villa Pooja Kanda

Pooja Kanda is situated only five-minutes away from the beach at Koggala, the golden southern coast of Sri Lanka. The area is encircled by local village homes, offering a special atmosphere of authentic Sri Lankan living.

The villa has five-bedrooms, expansive living and dining spaces, and a kitchen overlooking the swimming pool. With this spacious setup, family members and friends can do their own thing while staying connected with the rest of the group.

In Sinhalese, Pooja Kanda means “hill of worship”; and this is reflected in the natural setting of the villa, a temple of relaxation and serenity promising an inner sanctum of calm.

10/10 (Average rating based on 5 reviews)

Totally amazing experience. Awesome staff, delicious food, lovely environment. The facility is magnificent. Like living luxurious with a djungle feeling monkies schreeching around the corner. I would suggest anybody visiting Sri Lanka to rent Pooja Kanda a couple of nights. All the best recommendations.

Perfect Bachelors Party Weekend" We were a group of 10 who had come to Sri Lanka for my Bachelors Party. For the first time ever, I have booked a place online and found the place to be far better than the pictures posted on the Internet. Right from the time we entered Pooja Kanda we felt at home with the warm and courteous staff. The location just perfect, lush & regal. There was absolutely nothing we could complain about the Villa and its amenities in any way. Since we were celebrating my bachelors party at Pooja Kanda, we were having late night pool parties at the Villa. Special thanks to Sushant (Chef) and the house boys (Tharanga & Dickman) who put up with all our late night food requests. They made us feel at home with their everlasting smile and eagerness to make our stay comfortable. The food too was absolutely stunning (Sri Lankan Cuisine) with Sushant preparing Huge Spread's fit for the Royals! A HUGE Thanks to the Pooja Kanda Team for giving us a Memorable and Unforgettable Experience. P.S: We are already in the process of planning our next trip back to Pooja Kanda, hopefully by the year end. Cheers, Shyam Srinivas India

We felt very much a part of village life even though we were perched well above the nearly out of sight homes. Loved the early morning chanting,mullahs calls to prayer,drumming,and morning fires. Watched the morning ritual of monkeys crashing through the trees on their way to a day out feeding and watched it all in reverse at dusk. Marvelled at the busy birds of all colours and laughed at the squirrels antics. Pooja Kanda was a paradise for us....lush and floral. The property was beautifully maintained and the staff delightful. We ate delicious Sri Lankan cuisine for breakfast,lunch and dinner. Tell the chef how you like it and give him his head. Can't wait to go back...Cheers Charmaine.

Wonderful, and absolutely unforgettable. Coming with my numerous 'family' - nine of us altogether, from 3-year-old twins upwards - from the tensions of the Middle East where we live, this really was a bit of paradise on earth. It's almost too difficult to single out particular memories, but playing cricket in the garden is something we don't do every day in Arabia. (Thank you, Tharanga and all the staff, for this and so much else.) If we had the time and the resources, we would come back to Pooja Kanda every single year.

We enjoyed it to Pooja Kanda, everything was perfect. The splendid villa, delicious cuisine carefully prepared by the chef and his team. Loku, the supervisor has organized a party for a birthday party with dancers and musicians, fireworks, BBQ, ..... unforgettable. Everything was done for our comfort and we really enjoyed! Thank you to Rob, the manager and his team (supervisor, cooks, gardeners, cleaning lady, Guardians) .... it was a dream for us and you've done! At another time perhaps, but with the kids because I think it will be paradise for them too! Thank you.
