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
