Kadju House


Kadju House Shower under a Frangipani tree, luxuriate in a cinnamon-walled spa or stroll down the hill to the beach. Kadju House is serene, relaxed and intimate. Overlooking a pristine crescent-shaped beach, the house offers four en-suite bedrooms, an Ayurvedic spa and an infinity pool with sweeping sea views. The design blends a simple tropical aesthetic with modern luxury. The four full-time staff includes 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.

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.

Kadju House is about 190 km from Colombo. During the day, the drive from Colombo takes approximately 5 hours via the southern coastal road. But the route, along alluring beaches and through bustling villages, is very picturesque. The journey time can be reduced by at least an hour in the early mornings or late evenings. There are interesting spots and diversions along the way. We particularly recommend a stop in Galle. After the 190km 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 dirt road on the sea side directly opposite the temple gate. Proceed up the dirt road and The Kadju House is on the left at the end of the road.

Only a handful of private homes have direct access to our picture-perfect beach, with its soft white sand and swaying palms. The warm, clear waters of the Indian Ocean are ideal for body-boarding and swimming all year round. Fishing boats land in the morning and fresh fish can be bought directly from the boats. 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.

Organic food from the sea and garden is available for those seeking a detox; affiliated therapists can provide massages and Ayurvedic treatments in the spa and visiting and local yoga instructors offer private lessons at the house as well as group sessions at a nearby studio.

The Kadju House also boasts an Ayurvedic Spa... The 4,000 year-old Ayurvedic tradition of herbal medicine is still widely practiced in Sri Lanka. Local therapists offer simple massages or more specialized treatments in Kadju House's cool, breezy spa room with its cinnamon stick walls. (A garden of medicinal herbs is being d laid out under the supervision of Dr Vasantha, the area's foremost Ayurvedic expert)...

Our chef, Anton, cooks 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. Guests can eat at the long table in the formal dining area, on the terrace by the pool, and at any spot they like in the lush garden or on the beach itself. With advance warning, we can arrange delivery of fine wine and champagne.
