Gal Oya Lodge ,
Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka
Info : Gal Oya Lodge
Gal Oya Lodge is situated in the heart of the Gal Oya national park, not far from Sri Lanka’s most sizeable inland body of water, Senanayake Samudraya lake, a wonderfully serene body of water surrounded by forests teeming with colourful wildlife. Furnishings have been lovingly handcrafted from teak and mara wood by workers in the village and its open-plan architecture makes the most of the panoramic mountain views.
With its high ceilings and polished cement floors, the lodge is cool and tranquil. Any number of boat or safari excursions showcase the jungle, lake, and countryside at its finest. On site you can gather delicacies from the organic farm, or relax by the pool and take in the stillness of the forest.
Nine spacious bungalows make the most of the spectacular scenery, with wide-open spaces overlooking the forest. King-size beds and private living rooms feature tall glass windows, and each bungalow has a private veranda and luxury en suite bathroom. For a real treat, book the spacious two bedroom villa at the resort’s highest point – the sunrise and sunset views from the wraparound veranda are unforgettable.
For those looking for a tranquil retreat in the heart of the jungle without sacrificing comfort, we think this is a great choice. Getting there requires some effort, so if you’re short on time, save this special experience for when you feel like you have all the time in the world.
Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
