Habaraduwa House fronts a pristine stretch of beach in the village of Habaraduwa on the Galle Coast. Galle is only 15 minutes away. The journey from Colombo’s international airport will take about 2.5 hours via the Southern highway, or take the air taxi to Koggala lake. If you are then heading from the coast into the hills, we offer competitive rates on a daily sea plane between Koggala and Hatton.
