Pause, take a deep breath & exhale. You are home.
Perched on the edge of a picture perfect white sandy beach, The Sandhya, with its unassuming minimalist architecture and its luxurious contemporary aesthetics is calling you home.
Designed to feel like an exclusive private beach house with the amenities of an intimate boutique hotel, your relaxation starts as you kick off your shoes and slip through the hidden door in the wide wooden façade.
Inside , you will catch the first glimpses of our star attraction, The Indian Ocean, magnificent and omnipresent in every part of the hotel including all our Studios and Suite. With panoramic glass doors & windows though out, this captivating view is our artwork.
The Indian Ocean is your constant companion at The Sandhya. Whether you are enjoying the sunshine on the expansive lawns, lounging all day around our abundant, airy indoor living spaces or cooling off in our air-conditioned media room, the sea is always your view. Savour internationally-inspired snacks, meals and cocktails at The Dining Room then retreat to one of our spacious 9 bedrooms, never losing the view of the turquoise waters.
Dipping your feet in the azure waters of the 15-meter plunge pool, you will soon be hypnotised by the allure of the white tipped surf breaks just a few meters ahead.
Designed with luxury and comfort in mind, our property’s furnishings are inspired by mid-century aesthetics and embellished with mod-chinoiserie decor. Our Singaporean owner’s discerning vision has been brought to life by the local designers and craftsmen he worked with across Sri Lanka.
Kabalana beach, part of an exclusive stretch of southern Sri Lanka’s golden coastline and famed for its world class surf, turquoise waters & stunning sunsets, swaying palm trees and unspoiled beauty is the setting for your holiday of a lifetime.
Design & Ethos.
A departure from the typical colonial- style villas or local surf shack properties that line Sri Lanka’s south coast to the east of Galle, The Sandhya is a head- turner. Set on a powdery white sands of Kabalana Beach, steps away from the turquoise surf, the low-slung property’s clean, sharp lines serve as a contemporary canvas for a mood board imbued with Scandinavian sensibilities.
Elevated Comfort Food was the brief for our visiting menu designer, Chef Christophe DuBois. Working closely with our owner, a self-confessed “easy foodie”, the team conjured a delectable array of dishes inspired from a global set-list of food heaven highlights.
“the hotel’s farm-to-table restaurant which, incidentally has become the talk of town for its elevated comfort food like the deliciously crisp Peking-style fried chicken burger or the silky butter chicken curry.”
