About us

how we started

KADJAN VILLA was born as a social project in 2009  after realizing the difficulties and devastation that this part of Sri Lanka had suffered during 28 years of civil war and later the 2004 Tsunami.
In 2015 we started the rehabilitation of an old building that had been built by an NGO under the tsunami relieve  program. 
We redesigned the building to a two large  mirrored independent suites; each one with their own bathrooms and privacy. The objective was to rent them both to tourists so the family owners would have a steady source of income that could give them the opportunity for better life quality. 
The years that followed we increased the number of rooms but, this time by  building local style cabanas built and sourced locally.  The construction from beginning to the end was done by the mute and deaf community of Arugambay/Potuvil.  Today Kadjan Villa has two  54sqm suites and two separate cabanas all for rent.  Adding to this we also built a  communal kitchen cabana that serves as a restaurant and dining area for the guests staying with us. 5

Customers reviews

Die Anlage liegt etwas außerhalb von Arugam Bay ist aber fußläufig in 10 Minuten erreichbar oder mit dem TukTuk noch schneller. Der Strand ist nur knapp 100m entfernt, traumhaft schön und man begegnet kaum einem Menschen. Wenn man genug von der Sonne hat, kann man auch vor der Villa in der Hängematte chillen. Das Frühstück war sehr lecker und Shali ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber. Ob Surfen, Safari oder sonstiges, Shali kann euch bei der Organisation behilflich sein. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort unseren Urlaub verbringen.

Лучшее место на Шри-Ланке где нам довелось пожить за время нашего путешествия. Идеально все - дизайнерски оформленное жильё, блестящая чистота, превосходное расположение (одна минута пешком до океана, звук прибоя по ночам, пять минут до центра Аругам бей) , а главное - гостеприимство Рафаэля, всегда подскажет, поможет и сделает ваш отдых простым и незабываемым. Спасибо за отдых, обязательно вернёмся.

Jolies « cabanas » situées à 5 min en scooter du centre, idéal donc pour profiter du centre et dormir au calme! Complètement conformes aux photos. J’ai aimé aussi le fait que ce soit simplement 4 cabanes ce qui permet de rencontrer les autres voyageurs facilement et ne pas se sentir dans une usine à touristes.... shali et sa famille sont à disposition pour toutes demandes ce qui facilite considérablement le séjour ! Merci pour tout Je recommande sans souci!!
