KK Beach opened its doors in mid-December 2016 and is a contemporary and stylish beachfront boutique hotel with six stunning suites, overlooking the Indian Ocean. Located on the west side of Habaraduwa, the hotel is just 12km from Galle and the beach stretches as far as the eye can see.
Having built up an International reputation at the award winning Kahanda Kanda the owner, George Cooper, has turned his attention to the stunning Sri Lankan coastline. He identified the need for a chic but affordable beachfront hotel, which offers delicious food, as well as superbly comfortable accommodation.
Both Kahanda Kanda and KK Beach work in conjunction with each other, whilst being quite different in many ways. There will be a free shuttle service between the two hotels so that guests can sample both properties, and there will be holiday packages for guests to stay at both hotels.
The underlying factors for both hotels is the quality of the product, the level of personal service offered to guests, and the continuing attention to detail.
All the artwork in the hotel has been commissioned from Sri Lankan artists, giving them an opportunity to showcase their talents, and all the paintings are for sale.

All year round.
The driest part of the year falls between December and April. The monsoon can bring daily cloudbursts in June/July and October/November but only very occasionally is there a full day of rain.
Meals at KK Beach are a relaxed affair, with the emphasis on fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
