PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

The sun-kissed, palm tree-tickled splendour of Sri Lanka's south coast is classically good-looking; however, coastal stay KK Beach celebrates both Sri Lanka's past and present with modernist architecture and cool contemporary interiors – with a few traditional touches to give you a true sense of place. Start the day watching the sunrise over the Indian Ocean from your private balcony or the comfort of your bed. A generous alfresco breakfast will help you to make all the day’s big decisions; to sunbathe, snorkel, surf or sail? That is the question… Whether you pick a poolside sunlounger or don your snorkel gear and head for Koggala beach (mere steps away from the hotel), days of glorious sunshine on the island’s golden coastline are a shore thing…

ECO-FRIENDLY

To ensure the safety of our staff and guests during these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to temporarily close our hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience, please check back at a later time wheen travel restrictions in the area have lifted. We look forward to hosting you in the future when the world is a much safer and happier place. We appreciate you, thank you for understanding.

POOL

The hotel’s mirror-shine, 20-metre pool (for adults only) overlooks the Indian Ocean, which laps the beach just a few steps beyond.

ALSO

Unwind with in-room massages and yoga or Pilates classes held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday during high season (at an additional cost. Private classes available). All rooms are non-smoking.
KK Beach is the sister hotel of fellow Smith stay, the award-winning Kahanda Kanda hotel. There's a free Tuk Tuk shuttle running between the two, allowing guests to sample the restaurant at each.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Guests can upgrade to half-board for US$30 a person a day, or full board for US$50 a person a day. All spa therapists are male, but if you prefer a woman's touch, please let the hotel know and they'll try to arrange a female therapist for you (at an extra cost of US$30). The hotel does not accept babies or children under 12 years of age. Should you arrive at the hotel to check-in with a child under 12 years, the hotel reserves the right to refuse accommodation.

Rooms 

Go straight to the top: the Penthouse Suites have the best views in the hotel. At 80sq m, these are by far the largest rooms. With floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, you can watch the sunrise over the ocean from the comfort of your dreamily soft bed or your private balcony.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

Dress up for dinner, which is more formal than the hotel’s chilled-out lunch; both meals are served at the hotel’s alfresco restaurant. The chef whips up an authentic Sri Lankan curry buffet on Wednesday and Saturday nights; on Monday and Friday, there’s an array of seafood; and a selection of fusion dishes or Thai treats on the remaining three nights. All meals are prepared with the freshest local ingredients, including some lesser-known regional fruits and vegetables – so you can learn about your locality while you lunch…

Liquid Bliss 

Enjoy a glass of wine or a refreshing beer in the casual bar area by the restaurant. Perch on one of the high stools or sink into one of the sofas, with one of their KK Signature cocktails in hand – made with dark rum, lychee, lime and passion fruit juice.

Experience the Extraordinary 

The Unesco World Heritage Site of Galle Fort is just a 20-minute drive away and well worth a visit if you fancy stepping back in time for an afternoon. Right next door to the hotel is a sea-turtle farm and hatchery where you can meet and learn all about the five types of turtles found on Sri Lanka’s shores, and help the small team continue to protect the island’s sea life. A trip to the working Handunugoda Tea Museum is a must for all that appreciate good cuppa. Be sure to stop by the gift shop to buy some brew to take back home. Seafaring types should arrange a whale-watching excursion or a day of deep-sea fishing. Alternatively, hire a bike and cycle through paddy fields to Koggala Lake, where you can canoe or take a boat across the postcard-perfect waters. If you prefer the feel of sand between your toes, stay beach-bound at Koggala, where the coastline is mere steps from the hotel. Hours of sunbathing, body-surfing, snorkelling and scuba-diving await.

Transportation 

Between the small seaside towns of Habaraduwa and Talpe, on Sri Lanka’s south coast, KK Beach is about a 20-minute drive south of the historic city of Galle.

Planes 

Bandaranaike International Airport (www.airport.lk) is less than two-and-a-half hours away from the hotel by car. Our Smith24 Team can help to arrange flights and hotel transfers (US$120 each way) on request.

Trains 

Trains run regularly to Galle and Colombo from Habaraduwa station, which is a swift five-minute drive from the hotel. Let the staff at KK Beach know your arrival time and they will pick you up at the station and take you to the hotel for free.

Automobiles 

Travel is cheap on the island so you won’t need a car unless you like having the freedom of your own wheels; driving in Sri Lanka can be a little nerve-jangling at times. Our Smith24 Team can arrange a hire car for you to pick up at Bandaranaike. You’ll need an International Driving Permit and a Sri Lankan recognition permit, which you can get at the AA in Colombo. There’s free on-site parking at the hotel.
