Immerse yourself in nature

Gal Oya Lodge is more than just a Sri Lanka ecolodge. At the heart of the design is the lodge’s philosophy– to bring you closer to nature and to protect the local environment. Explore the rich wildlife of Gal Oya, one of Sri Lanka’s most remote and least visited wilderness areas. Take your time enjoying this natural paradise with boat safaris, jungle drives, bicycle tours, riverside picnics, naturalist treks and even a walk with the Vedda neighbours, one of the last remaining communities of the forest-dwelling, indigenous people of Sri Lanka. No internet connection and telephone coverage will help you to relax and spend quality time with your travel companions.

 

Accommodation

  • There are nine bungalows and family villas
  • All bungalow bedrooms feature spectacular floor to ceiling glass windows and doors that open onto a private veranda.Every bungalow is nestled in the forest, specifically sited to minimize its impact on the land, and to frame the best possible views. We want you to enjoy a sense of space and comfort. Each bungalow is a generous 800 sq. ft. consisting of a private living room and bedroom with a built-in king sized bed. An adjoining alfresco bathroom completes the experience.

The villa features a large 680 sq. ft. open plan living room that elegantly connects both bedrooms. The relaxing sound of nature is all around you. Each bedroom has its own wraparound veranda with wide views over the canopy to catch both the sunrise and sunset.
