Uda Kanda Villa is one of Galle’s most tranquil and charming three-bedroom houses, set on a private hilltop with leafy panoramic vistas over the surrounding countryside. Its stylish open plan design channels a contemporary tropical vibe yet the classically styled interiors are tastefully adorned with precious antique furniture from England, well-thumbed novels, framed photographs and prints. A small staff team maintain the villa, and meals are prepared by an in-house cook.
Designed in an L-shape, the villa makes the most of its hilltop location and lets tropical breezes flow freely through. The villa is wrapped by a deep veranda and all rooms open onto their own little area for gazing into the tropical garden – a haven for wildlife and birds. The open plan living and dining areas spill onto a lawn where a long infinity pool and cushioned pavilion invite days of private, sun-dappled relaxation, and views over the treetops to the Indian Ocean. Secluded yet accessible, the villa is within easy reach of Galle’s sandy beaches.
