Sri Lanka Kajdu House

Vacation Rental Description
The design blends a simple tropical aesthetic with modern luxury. The four full-time staff include a gourmet chef. The house is located in a cashew grove just outside the fishing village of Tangalle and close to nature reserves and temples.

The directions to the property:

Kadju House is about 190 km from Colombo. The drive from Colombo takes approximately three and a half hours on the new expressway connecting Colombo to Galle. There are interesting spots and diversions along the way. We particularly recommend a stop in Galle. 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 gate (Jayasumanaramaya). Proceed up the road and The Kadju House is on the left at the end of the road.

Enjoy great sea and garden views from any of the four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The elegant minimalist design--understated elegance, subtle luxuries and an uncluttered attention to detail.

Lie in bed and watch waves crash on the beach below or soak in the tub and gaze at the stars above. From the Sea Suite's balcony, enjoy views of the large tropical garden and the Indian Ocean.

The Garden Suite opens onto a lush garden filled with fruit trees. It has twin beds and is perfect for children. The bath tub stands next to lily pond full of fragrant red flowers.

The 36-foot-long rooftop infinity pool seems to merge with the breaking waves below as you swim along it towards the sea. Those who want to stay dry can sunbathe on the adjacent terrace or lounge in the breezy and shaded pavilion, with its mesmerizing view of the sea and gardens.

Around the rocky headland from our cove lies a long, curving bay with more enticing spots for sun-bathing and beach-combing. Boating, fishing and snorkelling trips can be arranged, when guests may encounter pods of playful dolphins and migrating whales.

Are children permitted at Kadju House ?

Yes, although they require close supervision as Kadju House is a two storied house built on a hill, and consists of various levels. Our staff love children and are excellent with children, and will gladly take care of them.

What is the weather like?

The weather in Sri Lanka on the Sri Lankan coast is monsoonal. The best time to visit is between November and May and in August and September. The monsoon period is in June and July, and in October. However, as The Kadju House is located in the dry zone, the rain is normally sporadic even during the monsoon and one may have the occasional clear rainless day. The Kadju House is located on an hill and enjoys cooling breezes – from the ocean during the day, and from inland in the evenings. It can even be quite chilly late at night and at early morning. The days are hot and sunny but this is tempered by the cooling breezes and when indoors, overhead ceiling fans.

Which is the best season to visit?

Kadju House is a year round destination. The driest part of the year is between November and May. June/July and October/November are wetter months due to the monsoon. The beach is rougher during the monsoon. Thunder storms are dramatic and beautiful and offer a different experience of being on the coast.

Are meals included in the rate?

No. However, ingredients are procured at cost and will be cooked by our chef for no extra charge. The savings compared to eating at a hotel restaurant is very significant. You will give our chef a cash float for procuring the ingredients after discussing the day’s menu with you, and he will do the shopping and present you with an account of the purchases. It might be a good idea, and experience for you to accompany him to the local markets to get a feel of what’s available, and also to get an experience of meeting the local traders and very friendly locals.

What kind of transport arrangements is available from the airport/Colombo?

Most guests come by private car either as part of a bigger exploration around Sri Lanka. Airport transfers can be arranged by Kadju House and it is highly recommended that transfers are pre-arranged prior to arrival at the airport.

Do you have accommodation for drivers?

Yes. Drivers’ may also take their meals with the household staff for a small supplementary payment.
