What a stunning place and the photos don't do it justice. Slightly off the beaten track its a house and grounds offering complete peace, but at the same time you are slowly immersed in the wonderful Sri Lankan culture. It was wonderful to get to know Sisira and Indrani. They couldn't do enough to look after us and the food was the best we had in Sri Lanka. Aside from the fantastic beach (the kids could swim in the sea all day unlike the South with its strong currents), I just loved waking up in the morning with the ceiling fan circulating a cool breeze and looking out to sea to watch the fishermen far far away. A holiday of dreams.
Thank you so very much for such a fantastic stay at Khomba. We had a simply amazing time. Best of all was the sea. It was so relaxing to be able to watch my grandchildren play in the water all day, from the privacy of our own beach hut. We'd stayed down south the week before and the currents were awful and really quite dangerous. We went to see the Dolphins. This is probably one of my favourite memories of Sri Lanka. They were truly amazing and the children were really living the dream. So spoiling to have our every need taken care of by Sisira. While the food was out of this world it was so much easier to be able to have less spicy food for the younger ones. You have clearly put so much effort into making this a very peaceful place. Thankyou
My partner and our two young children have holidayed in Sri Lanka before and last time we stayed on the South Coast so we really didn't know anything about Kalpitya and the West Coast. All I can say is that we had an amazing few days. This part of the coast is a well kept secret and getting there is half the adventure. You pass through the dusty local village and see a slice of Sri Lanka that you wouldn't find in the guidebooks. Turning off the red dirt track into Khomba, you enter your own private oasis. The gardens around the house are huge and Sisera, who looks after the place obviously takes great pride in maintaining them, particularly the fish pond which attracts an amazing array of bird life. The kids ran wild and used the house cycles to run to the neighbouring hotel operators to use their pool . Staying in Khomba felt very private. They don’t call this the Wild West for nothing. No traffic, no noise and very little development. Just bird song to wake you up in the morning. The beach was very private with a lovely hut where we spent most of the day staring out over calm seas. Another plus was that the seas are very calm, great for the kids. The beach stretches for miles in either direction and it was breathtaking. The house was perfect. Super comfortable beds and huge airy bedrooms. With open windows we only needed the breeze from fans to keep cool at night and the kids slept on the huge seating space built into each room. Sisera and Indrani, his wife - who does all the cooking, were superb and incredibly attentive. If you want a seafood dinner, Sisera will hop on his bike and come back an hour later with a bag full of fresh crabs, lobster and prawns. Indrani is a fabulous cook. We ate Sri Lankan food every day and marvelled at the array of different curries that she produced from completely unrecognisable vegetables. I was hoping to lose weight this holiday but no such luck. The high point for the kids was going out dolphin watching. After 15 minutes we ran into a school of hundreds of leaping spinner dolphins which was truly amazing. Thank you Khomba for a memorable holiday, we hope to be back one day.
The perfect getaway with the family, friends or even solo. The rooms are luxurious, modern, very spacious, clean and homely, the staff is very accommodating. The service staff is almost invisible, the sense of privacy is huge, making you feel at home. The attention is perfect and the food absolutely delicious. Many thanks to Indrani and Sisira. A highly recommended place for a relaxing In fact everything one needed to make it a holiday to be repeated again and again. The lovely beach in front of the villa is ideal to relax your mind as well as body.
We had a wonderful time at Khomba House, it was by far the best place to stay in Alankuda, you have created a little piece of paradise there. We were extremely comfortable and I slept like a child, lulled by the sound of the sea. It reminded me a bit of those meditation tapes of waves breaking. Photographs of sunsets, and recordings of waves never do justice to the reality and the deep coral sun set right in the centre of the horizon. The Indian Ocean was always warm, we swam at 7.00 am before breakfast till last thing at night. The climate was perfect, not too hot, a dry heat with a balmy breeze. Lovely to sit on the terrace to miss the midday heat and enjoy a little sleep on the daybeds after teatime. Sisira was a wonderful host and has the most delightful smile. We secretly nicknamed him Sinbad the Sailor. His wife's cooking was some of the best we sampled in Sri Lanka and we were beautifully and discreetly cared for.
