Koggala lake was once the longest non-stop flight in the world "Double Sunrise Flight", a 5625KM journey that took around 30 hours of highly dangerous flying, across the Indian Ocean from Perth in Western Australia. During the Second World War, Catalina flying boats were the only way of travelling between Australia and Britain, via Koggala, after the fall of Singapore to the Japanese army in 1942 cut off all travel links via South East Asia.
It was a RCAF Catalina pilot from Koggala who first spotted a Japanese armada advancing towards Colombo and sounded the alarm, helping save the British Eastern fleet from destruction by the same Imperial Japanese war fleet that destroyed Pearl Harbor. We have commemorated Catalina flying boat legacy in our logo and have named our two types of villas the “Rigel” and “Antares”, after two of the five aircraft that flew over 1.5 million KM on 271 secret missions between Perth and Koggala, without a single loss.
Today, Koggala is a laid-back resort town set between a lush tropical lagoon and one of the finest beaches in all Sri Lanka, where modern amenities and leisure facilities meet a rich cultural and historical tradition.
