The SpaceSleeping 4, this beautiful villa, is set in a private 3.5 acre estate, above the jungle, where bright and vibrantly coloured birds fly playfully in the breeze, swooning and swooping around the garden and the pool, and our charming staff are there to pander to your every whim, while you laze around in the sun, or swim in our 50 foot infinity pool…
Both rooms are individually decorated, have en-suite bathrooms, and their own outside seating area on the terrace.
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; or even arrange a pampering massage as the sun slowly sets on another perfect day...
[Note: This listing is for those people looking for 2 bedrooms, sleeping 4. Uda Kanda is also listed on this site as a three bedroom villa sleeping 6. However, in this listing the pricing is reduced, to reflect the use of just 2 bedrooms.]

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!

The house is perfect, there is nothing missing and the staff even better.

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.

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.
