Khomba is in a remote location. The shops in the local village Puttalam are fairly basic, whilst you can get a fantastic array of fresh fruit and vegetables other commodities are quite hard to come by.
It is advisable to take a good supply of sun block, mozzy repellent, antihistamines, painkillers as well as basic first aid kit.

We had a wonderful time. It’s a stunning villa, conducive to relaxation in all it’s aspects. But perhaps it’s most remarkable assets, as I’m sure you know, are Sisera and Indrani. They looked after us so wonderfully, and with such grace. Always smiling, always helpful, never intrusive. We had a fun shopping trip by tuk tuk with Sisera – who went to great lengths to seek out the harder to find fruits and veg for us. We ended up enjoying some terrific cherimoya/custard apple and jack fruit, as well as the usual pienapple, papaya and banana.
And Indrani’s cooking is stunning – even better than we had around Galle on our first trip, and that was pretty good. She must be one of the best cooks on the island! We did our very best to let them know how happy and grateful we were for all they did for us, so I hope they understood how delighted we were with their care.

"BEST OF THE BEST FAMILY BEACH VILLAS"
Khomba is a sensational, fully staffed, open-plan beach house on an untamed section of coastline North of Colombo. Built to catch the cooling trade winds and soak up the last rays of the setting sun, it is also possibly the best place in the world for dolphin watching.

High season runs from the beginning of November to the end of April.
Peak season is from mid- December to mid-January.
Low season is the end of April to the end of October. The sea will be rough during this period and unsuitable for swimming or going out in a boat to see the dolphins. This is the perfect time for Kite Surfing on the lagoon near to Khomba Beach House.
