Kadju House, Tangalle, Sri Lanka, is one of Conde Nast Traveller's 25 best beach villas in the world.  A stay at this luxury villa/boutique hotel is absolutely worth the 5 hour scenic drive from Colombo airport.  Perched upon a hill overlooking a sandy beach Kadju House is the perfect beachside hideaway for friends and family.  Take over the entire villa with its 4 rooms or simply stay a few nights in one of the hillside rooms.  With an Ayurvedic Spa, floodlit infinity swimming pool and a full time staff of four, including a chef, Kadju House offers exception value in very stylish surroundings.


Shower under a Frangipani tree, or be pampered in the cinnamon-walled Ayurvedic spa where a garden of medicinal herbs is being laid out under the supervision of some of the area's foremost Ayurvedic experts. Kadju House is located in a cashew grove just outside the fishing village of Tangalle and close to the nature reserves and temples. Don't just sit on the beach, there is plenty to do and see nearby; rock temples, living Buddhist monasteries, bird-watching, animal safaris and jungle tours. Parrots, eagles and monkeys can be spotted from the infinity pool terrace and peacocks often leave wet footprints on the floor of the pavilion. 


The happy team of staff will shop and cook for guests and they are happy to take guests to the market and teach them how to cook some authentic Sri Lankan dishes.  Meals are charged for ingredients and transport cost only. Fresh fish can be bought straight from the fishing boats on the beach. Kadju House serves fresh organic ingredients from the area, local markets and its own vegetable garden.

Kadju house is not licenced to sell alcohol, however there is a supplier who will deliver from Colombo.  We advise all guests to keep their receipts in case the Customs & Excise visit.

How to get there:

The new Airport - Mattala Rajapakska International (approx 2hrs) is now in operation so you maybe able to fly direct or get an onward transfer; please check with your travel agent when booking your flights. Kadju House is about 190 km from Colombo. The drive from Colombo takes approximately three and a half hours using the new expressway connecting Colombo to Galle (this is dependent on the time of day - evenings and early mornings are best when traffic is less). There are interesting spots and diversions along the way. We particularly recommend a stop in Galle - a World Heritage site. After the 191km marker post, proceed for another 800m, passing first a temple on the left then going over a little bridge and when the road veers right, one would see another temple. Take a right turn onto a Cement road on the sea side directly opposite the temple (Jayasumanaramaya) gate. Proceed up the road and The Kadju House is on the left at the end of the road. Sri Lankan Airlines (+94197333651) run a Sea Plane to Dickwella (10mins away) contact Manique Wijesurendra maniquew@srilankan.com for further details. Deccan Aviation's helicopter flight from the international airport to Tangalle is 45 minutes and accommodates 4 Adults and a child under 1yr.
