Ging Oya was a lovely place to begin our holiday in Sri Lanka as it is only 20 mins from the airport. It would be a lovely place to end the vacation for the same reason. The room and pool are wonderful and we particularly enjoyed the cow and dogs roaming around the property. It's also on a lagoon, and kayaking is an option. We ate at the hotel both nights, delicious food.Breakfast also lovely.
The only slight drawback is that the very charming owners don't have enough staff and are clearly struggling a bit. This meant that there was a general feeling of burdening them whenever we made a request and occasionally the fact that they were overworked was reflected in their demeanour. Even when ordering lunch we had to wait quite a long time, as our hosts were otherwise engaged in settling new guests into their rooms and there is no back up staff to help make a sandwich or get a drink. I can empathise and would say it would not put me off staying here again but would suggest that to move from 8 out of 10 to 10 out of ten Ging Oya need to hire a cook to lighten the load.More
