What to expect in this holiday rental in Tangalle, Sri Lanka?

Pool Views Kadju house

‘One must be absolutely modern,’ wrote the poet Rimbaud, and in this villa, you find a new conception of the Good Life: simple and visionary in its clarity. Designed to be integrated completely into its environment, it contains nothing superfluous, built from only necessary forms, almost more a fortuitous configuration of materials in nature than a manmade structure — something found. Walkthrough the rooms: without knowing it, you move from inside to outside, from outside to inside. Walk down to the white-sand beach and help a group of fishermen pull in a net of shining silverfish; afterward, relax for a massage in the Ayurvedic spa, or swim in the pool where an infinite perspective looks out over the Indian Ocean, framed by palm trees filled with parrots and monkeys.

The Pool at the villa

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.

36 foot swimming pool


If you are dreaming of adventures further afield, pilot a flat-bottomed punt through a bird sanctuary in a mangrove lagoon; visit a preserve home to herds of elephants, or bathe in a nearby river and enjoy a picnic lunch wrapped in a banana leaf. When you return, fishermen have brought just-caught lobsters to the doorstep. Be silent, drink the milk from an orange coconut, and listen to the peacocks’ melancholy cry. And then, at sunset, the landscape dissolves into pure form, and you dissolve with it.

Rest and reading spots

The garden and the living spaces have plenty of spots for reading, resting and contemplation. For an island of its size, Sri Lanka has made a remarkable contribution to world literature. There are many celebrated authors of Sri Lankan origin, such as Michael Ondaatje, Shyam Selvadurai and Romesh Gunesekera. The island has also inspired foreign writers, including Pablo Neruda, Paul Bowles, Arthur C Clarke, and Leonard Woolf, who all lived and worked here for a time.

food Kadju house

The chef prepares both Sri Lankan and European food. Fresh fish can be bought straight from the fishing boats on the beach. We serve fresh organic ingredients from nearby waters, local markets and our own vegetable garden. Fishermen amble by the villa with lobsters and fish caught that day just offshore and if required, Jumbo, our delivery man can source a wide variety of other equally fresh seafood.

“Absolutely amazing stay in paradise – Date of stay: January 2020

“We had the most amazing peaceful and relaxing stay at this house. The room was stunning with beautiful views and a open top shower which was a real treat. The staff were discreet but attentive. Then there was the food… what a treat.. we had stunning Currys made for us every evening with our choice of curry and then 5 different vegetable currys to go with it. We couldn’t have asked for me it was amazing. The pool is spectacular and the sunset views out of this world. We cant wait to go back again.”

“Barefoot luxury with amazing cuisine” – Date of stay: June 2017

“We stayed at this House with kids for 3+ weeks and everyone loved every second of our vacation.

Booking and Communication Verena and Vikram were very responsive and helpful in all communication and we felt very welcome even before we arrived. Wonderful driver Lal waited for us upon arrival with a sign and we were driven from Colombo to Tangalle in perfect comfort in his airconditioned minibus.

When we arrived at the House, a bit tired after the flights, we were welcomed by the staff and taken around by Keerthi, who also served up a delicious lime juice and cold towels by the pool, which really lifted our spirits. The dogs greeted us with curiosity and the staff made us feel right at home.

The House
The House is an award-winning architectural pearl where the design integrates perfectly in the surrounding nature. Every item is sourced with care to add to the overall design appeal of the house. It is mentioned by Condé Nast as one of the 25 best beach houses in the world, and it is really wonderfully appointed.

The Garden
The garden was hit hard by the rains a couple of weeks before we came and the grass was demolished. But still, it was nice and inviting with lush greeneries and blossoming frangipani trees, aloe vera, cinnamon trees, huge cashew (from which the house got its name – Kadju is cashew in Sinhalese), mango, pineapple, curry, tamarind, the giant jak fruit, lime and many others. There are also wild peacocks, iguanas, monitor lizards, monkeys, cool-looking birds and other fauna that frequents the garden.

The Rooms
the house has 5 double bedrooms, and although rather small (but who would want to stay in their room unless to sleep or rest???), they are very comfortable and clean. The AC could even make a Swedish Viking shiver at times, and showering under a frangipani tree is really nice! The upstairs room has a bath tub with a view to die for. The rooms are also really well designed and practical.

The Food
The food was truly spectacular! Every meal we had us going “mmmmm!!!” and “aaaaaahhhh!!!”. Every morning we talked to Keerthi, Dipika and Chamara about what we wanted for lunch and dinner – Keerthi did the shopping an Dipika cooked the most perfect meals for us! We just loved her Sri Lankan curries, but she is also well versed in other cuisines. The vegetables, fruits, fish and shellfish was amazing! A tip is to take an early morning tour to the fishing harbour and pick up some tuna, squid, mahi-mahi or whatever looks good.

The Location
We found Tangalle to be the perfect location in Sri Lanka. Away from the rather depressing tourist areas and with close proxemity to everything one could wish for. There are tourists, but not so many and most come to the more upscale Anantara, Amanwella or one of the beach houses. The pristine, beautiful beaches were our own, there are just so many short and long excursions where one can experience nature, culture, people, surfing, whales, turtles, crafts, water sports, yoga, martial arts….

All in all, this was our best vacation ever.”

“Stylish Beachfront Villa “- Date of stay: March 2016

“It’s not the easiest place to get to―4 to 5 hours by car from Colombo Airport or 90 minutes by helicopter―but it’s well worth the effort. Set in a private cashew grove near the fishing village of Tangalle, on Sri Lanka’s lush south coast, The House is surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens brimming with exotic birds and flowers just steps from the beach. Design-focused and very comfortable, the villa has 5 spacious suites (Sea, Courtyard, Pool, Garden, Spa), all decorated to the highest standards. Food is a highlight … in-house chef cooks Sri Lankan and European dishes (don’t miss his twist on yellowfin tuna), prepared with the freshest organic produce from the sea, garden and local markets. Eat at the long table in the dining room, on the terrace, or picnic in the garden or on the beach. The villa has a 36-foot infinity pool and an Ayurvedic spa area where local therapists and yoga practitioners can deliver treatments or private classes. Parrots, fish eagles and monkeys can be spotted from the pool terrace, and don’t be surprised to see a peacock strolling through the gardens. With five in-house staff on hand, you won’t have to lift a finger.”
