    The SpaceSleeping 4*, this beautiful two-bedroom villa, is set in a private 4 acre estate, above the jungle, where bright and vibrantly coloured birds fly playfully in the breeze, and our charming staff are there to pander to your every whim, while you laze around in the sun, or swim in our infinity pool… Both rooms are individually decorated, have en-suite bathrooms, and their own outside seating area on the terrace. (*Note bedroom 2 has EITHER a King Size double OR two large single beds) And you are less than ten minutes from the beach. A private home for much of the year, Uda Kanda is unlike other villas. Decorated as a home, rather than a typical rental villa, and sitting atop a hill, Uda Kanda is one the most relaxing villas on the island. With its refreshing pool, and views stretching to the Indian Ocean in the West, and to the distant, lush, emerald-green hills in the North, guests are immediately transported to a distant paradise. Being away from the hectic excitement of the beach, the villa is also home to an enviable array of wildlife, who will keep you entertained... And whilst you relax in the shade of the Ambalama, let our team of full-time staff look after you, from rustling up Western culinary masterpieces, or spicy local specialities, to freshly made fruit cocktails. WHAT PREVIOUS GUESTS HAVE SAID... Well…what a holiday! From the moment we arrived the care and attention was exemplary. We fell in love with the house and the staff and it started to feel like home very quickly. Naveen’s cooking was authentic, exciting and delicious. We are a chef and big foodies so this comes as high praise. J,V&MP, DE Another wonderful stay at Uda Kanda. Whenever we come it truly is a holiday thanks to the kindness and attentive service of everyone here. The girls are in their element and consider it a second home. And if they’re happy, we’re happy! Thank you again for such a fabulous holiday and allowing us to escape for a short while. PB Thank you so much for making our first trip to Sri Lanka so memorable – staying here was definitely the highlight! The food was fantastic and you looked after us as if we were family. We will be back!! R,E,E&BM Such peace and tranquillity looking down onto the world. A wonderful setting to relax and unwind yet only 15 minutes from urban hustle and bustle – if you need it!! All complemented by a wonderful staff team, all discrete courteous and attentive. A BIG THANK YOU C,BE We have had the most wonderful holiday, thank you all so much! It goes without saying that Uda Kanda is one of the most beautiful houses anywhere, such a glorious place. SR It has been the best week. We have loved every minute barely ever wanting to leave. It’s stunning here. Everyone has been so kind to us and the kids, we are extremely sad to leave. We will be back, maybe sooner than we think! F,D,R,F What a superb villa, the ambience is second to none and the staff a complete joy. The food has been far better than The Ivy! Truly one of the loveliest villas I’ve ever stayed in. AT This retreat is even more magical than we could have imagined. ZA Nothing prepared me for the spectacular position, atmosphere and magnificent building. Thank you so much it’s been a wonderful tonic. “HILL TOP Heaven”! SM I love, love, loved it. Thought it was utterly perfect. Staff were great - so sweet and helpful and overall the place has a great vibe. Honestly it felt like staying in someone's lovely home rather than a soul-less designer villa, which is part of the charm. I didn't want to leave! I will definitely recommend it! CS The house is perfect, there is nothing missing and the staff even better. S&BB It was a great moment to arrive at Uda Kanda after dark and to see this beautiful house illuminated, and then the wonderful experience of waking up to find oneself surrounded by jungle, with lovely birds around the pool. This has been an unforgettable good time. Thanks too, to your delightful Podi, Sanjiva, Karanapala and dear Jayanthi, and thanks to you. TS This has been the most wonderful fortnight’s holiday I have ever had the pleasure to pass. To see the house at dusk with the lights on, sitting by the pool with a beer, after a hot day down at Wijaya, is a fond memory I shall take with me for the rest of my days. Add to this the wildlife – birds and mammals – this captivated me into an instant “Twitcher’s” world with the aid of the house bird book. The staff all worked with real kindness to ensure we will definitely be back. R&TW Guest AccessUda Kanda is a private house. When you take it, you take it exclusively, and have access to all* parts of the house and garden, except the staff areas. Although listed here as a two-bedroom villa, there are actually three bedrooms (listed here https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/909747 ). This two-bedroom listing is to enable guests to book just two rooms, for a reduced rate. Hence, there is no access to one bedroom/bathroom. Interaction with GuestsWe can help you plan your stay before you arrive, stock the villa, and we can be contacted if anything is needed. However, you will find that once there, the staff can take care of most things for you. The NeighborhoodThere are many beaches from just 10 minutes away; but the beach is not necessarily where you want to be the whole time. The waves can be noisy, there are always people on the beach, and aside from crows, there are few birds. The beach is always there, you can always go to it. But at Uda Kanda, you can always escape from it! Up on the hill, you are surrounded by peace and quiet, and birdsong. On the path of migratory birds, Sri Lanka plays host to many different types of birds, of all colours, from the electric blue of Kingfishers to bright Yellow Orioles. And you will struggle to find better food than that coming from the Uda Kanda kitchen! Getting AroundThere is parking, but the best way of getting around is by local three-wheelers, or "tuk tuks", which our staff can organise. For longer journeys, a car or van can be easily arranged. Other Things to NoteWe have a team of 5 staff, who are there to look after you. They understand when guests need to be looked after, but also understand when privacy is preferred.

      The SpaceThis place is simply great. Beautiful, grand, old, tastefully decorated, all that, but first and foremost a place that really feels like a home where actual people live. Even the monkeys from the woods nearby come to visit every now and then, to check out if Deanna’s wonderful garden has tasty things to offer. Interaction with GuestsDeanna is the name of the owner, but she’s not around. At your service is the experienced Sirisena, who’s been living in a separate house on the premises with this family for 15 years. He knows all about the area and can arrange many things, such as transportation and activities. Cooking is Jimmy the Cook’s work, though, and he can cook a range of local and Western dishes if you wish. The NeighborhoodUnawatuna… sounds attractively exotic doesn’t it? It is. It’s a fairly popular place too, certainly in the high season, but nowhere near as busy as Negombo or Hikkaduwa. All is all a comfy spot if you’re looking to meet some fellow travellers and kick back. Unawatuna is one of the rare places in Sri Lanka where sunbathing in a bikini won’t attract too much attention. So yeah, a nicely familiar stop, before heading back into the wild and wonderful… Deanna’s is a mere 50 metres from the waves and a stroll away from Unawatuna Beach. Right where you want to be.
