Set on the banks of the Ging River, surrounded by luscious vegetation and resounding with birdsong, Ging Oya Lodge is unique in every way.The Lodge is a family-run guest house where your stay will be a relaxed, peaceful experience in an intimate environment. The rooms are spacious and luxurious bungalows tucked into the lush greenery, each equipped with all modern conveniences. Each hosts its own verandah where you can repose and take in the stunning surroundings.The beach is a short walk or kayak-trip away and is rarely visited by other tourists, allowing you to enjoy the sun and sea in a natural setting.

We stayed just north of Columbo for four days to recover from jetlag - it was perfect large tranquil surrounded by the Gin Oya (Green River). The new Sri Lankan owner has the magic touch of making wonderful food and totally attentive. The pool is beautiful, cool and refreshing. They have a piano for music lovers and huge trees great for bird watching. They create an ambiance that connects guests to eeach other - we made lovely friends that we reconnected with during our travels thoughtout Sri Lanka.

We stayed here for the last few days of our holiday in Sri Lanka and we left in style. This place is a real gem. Rooms are very spacious, with huge bed and seating both in the room and on the veranda. Large swimming pool. The lodge is reached through a gate and then up a tree lined drive, all very atmospheric. It's about 1km from beach and nearest restaurant, but bikes are provided for free and the local roads are very quiet. We ate in twice and had a excellent set meal. It turns out the hotel had been sold to new owners two days before we arrived, both of whom we met and seem very nice. I really hope they can maintain the standards set by their predecessors.

This place is amazing to end or start your trip! The place is so beautiful, the atmosphere just breaths calmness... we loved the possibility to use the canoes. The pool is super clean and big, their own cow is the cutest, their food is to die for. And their breakfast... my god... + in the evenings you can watch the huge bats wake up and fly out to eat, super impressive!

It took us a while to find the lodge - we and our driver got lost 3 times and the people that arrived at the same time as us also got lost. So some arrival information including photos of the gate may be helpful in future as there is one sign on one junction but then nothing. Anyway having arrived it is a very nice peaceful venue with a lovely pool. It is on a river though so make sure you use insect repellant as we were continually bitten. There are kayaks to use. They do not take card payments which we didn’t know until we arrived. Payment is only by cash or bank transfer which can be tricky as they have foreign bank accounts compared to your home country potentially. It is a small place with about 6 colonial style homes each with an outside shower/bathroom and seating out the front on a verandah. The rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom is generally clean although the shower curtain needs replacing. For info there are no toiletries provided. There is no WiFi in the rooms and only limited WiFi available sometimes for only part of the day if their allowance runs out. So if you need to be online I suggest you try elsewhere. They have a lovely large pool with good quality beds. There is a nice dining area serving basic, ample breakfast every morning. The quality of food is excellent and the evening meals are a set 3 courses all home made which I would recommend having. The lady that generally runs the lodge is lovely and very friendly - her husband is an excellent cook. The spa services are a definite when you are there but book up as soon as you arrive as very popular and very competitively priced. They also have an extensive library of books that you can borrow. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Ging Oya Lodge on our way back to Colombo airport after a busy 2 weeks.
