We had the most amazing time at Gal oya Lodge! The location was out of this world, and the excursions that were planned for us were mesmerizing. The boat safari, and having tea in actual tea cups with shortbread on an island with wild elephants was such an experience! The jeep safari to the national park, with towels, lunch, iced water all provided, and to take a river bath in one of the most beautiful places on earth was really something! The nature walk in the village to see birds was also really enjoyable. Overall the attention to detail really took this trip from excellent to exceptional! The lodge itself was very clean, pictures were just like on the website, staff were so knowledgeable and friendly with excellent hospitality... Will definitely return!

A wonderful three nights glamping at the beautiful Gal Oya lodge. A home away from home with perfectly curated meals , attentive and very hospitable staff who tended to all our needs with a smile. The well appointed chalets with a open concept toilet and birds chirping while you sit to enjoy a cuppa! The evening nature walk with a picnic amidst nature and the beautiful wewa on our first day with the ever obedient Arrack for company. The Senanayake Samudra boat ride watching the majestic Elephants ,the spectacular sunset and hearing anecdotes from the naturalists Anuradha ( Bob) and Upul was truly a highlight of our stay. A fantastic trip to the Nilgala forest reserve with a swim in the river and a jungle breakfast laid out to perfection with florals from the wild to complement it from the lodge team was truly glorious . Sisira and Madushan attended to all our needs at the lodge and we never missed no connectivity amidst this idyllic setting. Highly recommend a holiday in the wilds at Gal Oya lodge!

Came to stay over a long weekend and with a few friends and had a fun packed few days! Staff and food were great with a special Gal oya welcome when Dinner was served. The rooms were beautiful and nested away in the jungle so you really felt you could relax and enjoy the lodge surrounded forest and mountains. There were lots of activities available but the highlight was the safari trip with a stop at river which was in a secluded peaceful spot where you could unwind. Here you can choose between a fun packed few days or a place to get away and chill and see the untouched side of Sri Lanka.
