Amazing place!”
The hotel offered a picturesque view of the landscape and lake. That was enough to take my breath away. It was a good way to relax. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The facilities were clean and the food they served were very good. If you are after a peaceful relaxation during your vacation, this is the best place. If you need to go to the beach they can help organize/call tuktuks which can take you to the town and beaches.

Exceptional”
Clean and well-maintained grounds and buildings. Accommodation consists of individual apartments overlooking a large lake; the view is superb - breathtaking and tranquil. Tranquility is a big draw here - most accommodation on Hikkaduwa is located on the main road meaning a constant stream of traffic and tooting horns, however Kalla Bongo is located 2km inland, no passing traffic or noisy neighbours! A tuk tuk to the beach costs 300 rupees and the hotel staff will happily arrange for one to pick you up. Rooms are clean and well-sized with an outside area to enjoy the views. The restaurant serves a fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the staff were genuinely friendly, attentive and helpful. A perfect place to stay!

Peace and tranquility”
Lovely hotel. Located on the edge of Hikkaduwa Lake, it's a 10 minute tuk tuk ride from the beach, and has stunning views. The food in the evenings is excellent - I can strongly recommend the Sri Lankan rice and curry. Would recommend to anyone looking to be near Hikkaduwa but likes peace and quiet too. It's also good for wildlife spotters.

Best place to chill in Hikkaduwa”
The place took our breath away as we entered. It's calm and serene, with our room overlooking Hikkaduwa Lake. There's a swimming pool too, but hey, the lake is a minute away! The rooms themselves were clean, the staff were courteous, and the food was amazing. The only problem is the property's distance from Hikkaduwa Beach. But if you're looking to relax and stay away from the crowds, then this is the place to be!

Relaxing Haven”
The Kalla Bongo is a great place to relax & enjoy, suitable for all ages whether it be for a quiet few days before returning home or a base for exploring the southern region to honeymooning couples. My husband & I made this our last stopover after touring Sri Lanka for 3wks & were we blown away by the view of the lake when we turned the corner ifrom the reception area. The peaceful, calming & stressless feeling of getting away from it all sits right here in Kalla Bongo. Melvin & the staff are always on hand to help make your stay special. We were booked in for B&B as we had done at our other hotels & ended up also having lunch & dinner as the food was great no matter what we ordered. You can take a canoe out onto the lake which we didn’t do this time but will next time we go back. The swimming pool was right outside our front door & is spotless as is the rest of this small resort. Our room was made up daily not to forget fresh bottles of water to drink. A short tuk tuk ride into Hikkaduwa costing approx 300rs each way which the staff will call for you, this takes you into the busy centre where you have a variety of local places to eat & a few miles of beach to choose from not to mention lots of souvenir shops.

Wonderful, Intimate Get Away”
Great place to stay if you want to escape the crowds and the crazy of Hikkaduwa proper. It's about 10 min off-the-beaten-path and offers guests an secluded, peaceful setting. The pool is framed against a gorgeous view of Hikkaduwa Lake and the rooms are some of the cleanest I've ever experienced. The restaurant sits near lakeside thus sharing the beautiful view and staff are friendly, attentive, and welcoming. Excellent choice if you want to pair a high-class, quiet get away with a stop by Hikkaduwa

Comfortable stay on the lake”
Really enjoyed our stay here. Friendly owners and staff. Great views over the lake from rooms and pool area. Very spacious and clean rooms. An escape from the bustle of the main streets and beach of hikkaduwa, while being a short tuk tuk ride away.
