Café Kachchan is on the fifth floor, overlooking the infinity pool, Sigiriya Rock Fortress and Kandalama lake. On arrival you will be invited to relax here with a cool drink while we take care of your registration.
At other times you can order light bites and snacks, such as our signature jumbo sandwich, ice cream sundaes and cakes.
At weekends, there is a small stall where you can buy our home-made jams and pickles to take home. (At other times they are also available in the shop.)
Open:7am – midnight daily
Next to the Café Kachchan is the main residents’ bar, where we stock a wide range of international and local brands of beer, wine and spirits. Lion and Three Coins lager are made in Sri Lanka, while arrack is the local spirit, distilled from coconut juice.
Maybe you’d like to try our signature cocktail – a mix of lime wedges, brown sugar, lemongrass, apple cordial and brandy on ice. Or how about a Caraguwa, which combines old arrack with carrot, guava and grapefruit juice?
You can also watch your favourite films, sports or TV programmes on the giant screen here while enjoying a drink.
Open:11am – midnight daily
The spacious Kanchana Lounge, on the sixth floor opposite the main restaurant, is decked out with comfortable basket chairs and sofas and stylish wooden animal sculptures. It’s the place to go for coffee and a liqueur after dinner.
We offer entertainment here every evening, from live bands and flute music to cultural shows, including dancing by hotel staff at weekends.
There’s also a billiard table (Rs450 an hour).
Open: 6.30pm onwards daily
