Introduction

Kalla Bongo sits on an acre of terraced land scattered with palms and tropical foliage. The gardens slope down gradually to the Hikkaduwa Lagoon with its myriad of small tributaries and mangroves that attract many species of birds. The bedrooms are located at the top of the hill and some halfway down allowing for spectacular lake views. The restaurant, bar and lounge area is by the lake side. Guests can choose to arrive at Kalla Bongo by boat along the lake or by car via Hikkaduwa. The boat ride coming in from Thotagama is highly recommended. Kalla Bongo is the creation of its Dutch owner and the Sri Lankan staff will ensure that you have a relaxing holiday.
