Koggala House is a recently built boutique hotel on the banks of tranquil Koggala Lake on the south coast of Sri Lanka. The house is situated in a quiet and peaceful rural area surrounded by rice paddy, cinnamon plantations and coconut trees but it is only a ten minute drive to the beach in a local tuk-tuk or taxi. The nearest beach is Kabalana, a wide stretch of beautiful clean white sand renowned for its surfing and safe swimming. The famous Sri Lankan stick fishermen are nearby. The Galle Fort heritage site is 15 kilometres west and the huge sandy bay and colourful fishing boats of Weligama are 15 kilometres east. The Whale watching at Mirissa is a short drive along the coast.
Close to the Southern Highway it is easy to get to Koggala House from the international airport by air-conditioned taxi or by seaplane directly onto the lake. Tours can be arranged to see the blue whales at Mirissa, safaris to various national parks or a cultural trip through mountainous tea plantations to the religious sites in the north
