The bespoke villas are inspired by local culture, featuring elegant art and antiques within each of the spacious rooms and gardens. This is a sanctuary where guests can indulge in serenity, privacy and personalised five-star service.

The pool at KK is 20 metres long, with an infinity edge overlooking Koggala Lake.
