Kabalana House

Fringed by a soft sandy beachfront it’s undeniably stamped by mother’s and my partiality to the blending of wood, the simplicity of naked cement and glass. Dotted with antiques, which radiate their Dutch heritage, it embraces the flavor of the locale. Heavenly beach life sneakily meets earthy luxury.


Minimalist and modern, adorned with paintings from young Sri Lankan artists, the openness lets in our beautiful coconut tree-sprinkled garden and an endless expanse of sea.


Sheer glass windows when opened welcome balmy breezes and panoramic views of golden sunsets and ice blue horizons to four-poster beds under an intricate wooden ceiling; in four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms

Indika, our cook, there from day one, creates delicious meals. Tag along with him to the local market and pick vegetables of your choice, seafood from the fish market or straight from the nets of the fisherman on the beach.

Or just laze, order from the menu or attempt to challenge Indika with a craving. Be spoilt by our butlers and housekeepers so eager to please.

Carve your memory in the guest book; we’ll add it to ours.


The credit for the pavilions goes to my brothers. They felt it would be cool to have 'chill spots'. One facing the sea, perfect to wine and dine at night. The other, for idyllic sun soaked mornings in-between an azure pool and a turquoise ocean.

Memories of us three teenagers and Mum swimming out to catch waves to body board are testimony to its surfing repute.


Around and about

The 16th century UNESCO World Heritage site is a 30-minute drive away. The Old Town of Galle and its Fortifications is said to be the best example of a fortified city built by Europeans in South-East Asia, displaying European architectural styles fusing with South Asian traditions. Some of these structures now house art galleries, antique jewelry stores and quaint cafes worth perusing.

Closer home is Unavatuna with a character all its own. Laid-back yet throbbing with life made of seafood, heaps of cafes, pubs and lively nightlife.

Mirissa is further south, a little fishing town with a charismatic port for trawlers. Depending on the time of year whale and dolphin watching with a responsible tour operator is a must-do.
