Located in Koggala in Sri Lanka, near Galle, Pooja Kanda is a tranquil five bedroom hideaway, five minutes inland from the beach at Koggala on Sri Lanka’s golden Southern coast. Cool wrap-around balconies, arched doorways and lofty beamed ceilings characterise this serene Dutch colonial-style villa.
Rising up taller than the building itself, the trees lift their leafy branches towards the sky and provide a playground for the monkeys that come visit every morning.
With a spacious fully-furnished sitting room, an indoor and outdoor dining and a 8.1m long pool overlooking the two-acre garden, the property’s natural setting is indeed a temple of relaxation and serenity. Perched on the top of a verdant hillock, aged trees and tropical plants characterise the large garden and provide respite for the many birds and wildlife that come to visit. Open-sided living room & shaded roof terrace give way to the expansive wraparound balcony upstairs.
The house is fully staffed with a chef and comes with a turquoise swimming pool with lounging ledge, a wireless internet connection, an air conditioned TV room and a fully equipped kitchen.
For the children, the pool comes with a safety system.
