An ecolodge focused on the untouched serenity of nature and wildlife, with an aim to harmonise its visitors with the rustic beauty of the jungle and preserve the local environment. Witness all this and more at Gal Oya Lodge, in the eastern province of Sri Lanka in one of the most remote wilderness spaces, the Gal Oya National Park. Allow native Veddhas, one of the last remaining indigenous people of the island to take the reigns and guide you through their territory and unearth the wilderness like never before.
Gal Oya Lodge lets nature lead the way, fusing with its surroundings in flawless synergy. Incorporating sustainable and local materials, the spacious bungalows place you right at the heart of the 20-acre private jungle, with seemingly endless forestry to be explored.
If you're looking for a retreat that's off the beaten track, a safari tour by jeep, boat or foot will unleash your wonder and sensory understanding of the natural world. Overlooking the Senanayake Samudraya Lake, glide by elephants and crocs swimming, and observe 100s of bird species.
Each room marries you to the flourishing landscape all around, with natural light streaming in through floor to ceiling glass windows and vast open spaces such as the private, panoramic veranda. Native materials such as cajan, wood and illuk leave no detail independent of the undisturbed paradise.
Experience a surreal dining experience amid the humbling sounds and smells of the jungle on Gal Oya Lodge's mezzanine. All Sri Lankan and Western-inspired food is served on their open-air lodge, using locally-sourced produce from neighbouring villages.
Fancy a cocktail on your private veranda, by the swimming pool or atop the open-air lodge top? Gal Oya's locally-recruited staff will be happy to magic up a tantalising refreshment.
Immerse yourself in wild Sri Lankan forestry and the mountainous landscape. Spot a wealth of wildlife and feel at one with the wilderness.
