Holiday Rental House
Halala Kanda, or Firefly Hill, is a stunning luxury Villa built in 1912 by wealthy Sri Lankan owners. Set in the lush plantation hills of Weligama, Halala Kanda once more offers a serene oasis to relax and recharge, yet is within easy reach of the pristine southern beaches and the historic charm of Galle. It is set upon a breezy hill on 2 acres of groomed gardens and includes a 23m pool. Our large, open plan kitchen is equipped to the highest restaurant standards and houses a generous day table for early morning coffees & teas and relaxed dining. Guests can experience cooking some of Sri Lanka's most inspiring dishes with Lasitha, our inhouse chef. It is fully staffed with a manager, chef, two service staff, two gardeners and a security guard....Halala Kanda, or Firefly Hill, is a stunning luxury Villa built in 1912 by wealthy Sri Lankan owners.
