Take a look inside Koggala House

Set along the banks of Koggala Lake in south Sri Lanka, Koggala House is a newly built boutique hotel enveloped by rice paddies, cinnamon plantations and towering coconut trees. The small coastal town emanates a serene charm and offers just the right environment for a restful getaway. Containing a total of four bedrooms, Koggala House is ideal for accommodating travelling parties of eight.


Beach-goers will enjoy the pristine white sand coasts of Kabalana (15 minutes’ drive), a beach known for its safe swimming and surfing. Stroll along the beach for a glimpse of the renowned stick fishermen of Sri Lanka.

Galle Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is 45 minutes’ drive from your villa. A walking tour is a great way to take in the sights of the town while discovering interesting snippets of its history and culture from your guide. For a dose of cultural sightseeing, stop by attractions like the Dutch Reformed Church, Martin Wickramasinghe Folk Museum and Japanese Peace Pagoda.

Your villa manager will readily assist with tour arrangements. Family-friendly attractions that come with our recommendation are Dondra Point (an hour’s drive) or Mirissa (43 minutes’ drive) for whale watching, Turtle Watch Rekawa (two hours’ drive), Handunugoda Tea Factory (16 minutes’ drive), Yala National Park (three hours and 20 minutes’ drive) and Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary (two hours’ drive).

Koggala House was everything I was hoping for and more! We had just been travelling as a group around Sri Lanka and were hoping to get down to Koggala House and relax...! We had an absolute ball, it is very peace and quiet and had gin and tonics at 5pm on the deck each day. The rooms are immaculately done, the owners have gone all out on this. The Chef had done his trade in Brazil and France and was amazing. Each night we had 3 courses overlooking the lake. The managers also organised for us to go on the Whale watching tour of the blue whales down at Mirissa and got us VIP seats on the boat. We also ventured into Galle to see the fort and other beach areas. Overall its a perfect stay for a group of people who are keen to relax and get first class service. I will be definitely coming back to Koggala house!
