I have been very fortunate to stay at the Ging Oya Lodge on a number of occasions throughout the years. To put it lightly, it is, by far, one of the most charming and hospitable places.
The architecture is subtle and very well blended with the jungle, the food is excellent, the rooms are comfortable and private, and the hospitality of the management is far above average.
This is a place you need to visit if ever you go to Sri Lanka.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Should the quiet become too much, a trip in a local tuk-tuk will soon have you in the bustling heart of nearby Negombo where you can experience the colourful local markets or simply absorb the atmosphere of the popular tourist beaches. ... more less
