Venue Setting

Gal Oya Lodge is the perfect haven for wildlife enthusiasts and those looking to live in the heart of nature. Set amongst 25 acres of private forest in the East of Sri Lanka, there’s no better place to experience all the amazing wildlife Sri Lanka has to offer.

Just 3 1/2 hrs drive from the city of Kandy and 2 hrs drive from Arugam Bay, our high end eco lodge is situated on the border of the Gal Oya National Park, one of Sri Lanka’s least explored National Parks. It’s the perfect location to stay and enjoy the island’s only boat safari.

The lodge is made up of 7 secluded bungalows and a 2 room villa. Each bungalow is a fusion of the traditional and the contemporary, blending natural materials such as illuk, cadjan and wood with modern touches of comfort and luxury.

We’ve created sustainable living spaces that reflect our eco philosophy.

Every bungalow has a spacious bedroom including a king sized bed, plus a sitting room opening onto a private veranda. The bathroom is fit for two, containing his and her sinks and indoor and outdoor showers - complete with solar powered hot water. Local furnishings add touches of Sri Lankan style to the interior, providing a colourful and comfortable setting for an intimate retreat within the forest.

The main lodge boasts a spacious restaurant and bar that overlook our pool and the surrounding mountains. Guests can choose between a range of Western or Sri Lankan cuisine and even pick some produce from the Lodge’s very own organic garden.

Gal Oya Lodge is also known for its unique safari activities. Guests can enjoy a wide variety of excursions - all accompanied by Gal Oya Lodge’s expert naturalists. Experience Sri Lanka’s only boat safari within a National Park, and witness herds of elephants living in their natural habitat. We also offer walking excursions, jeep safaris and a special visit to the indigenous Vedda tribe.

The jungles of Gal Oya National Park are home to some of the richest biodiversity in all of Asia, and we can take guests right into the heart of nature to experience wildlife in a whole new way.

Gal Oya Lodge, a nature lover’s dream destination.
