For our first night in Lanka we wanted an accommodation close to the airport, but far enough from the big crowd. Ging Oya Lodge was the perfect choice! When we arrived, Myrjam and Leo gave us a warm welcome, quickly followed by there kind dogs. After settling in our room, which has a very nice garden-like bathroom, we walked around... More

this was our third visit , which is a record for us because we like exploring different areas / hotels, so don't even get a second look normally, but the lodge by the river with the great hosts , wildlife , pool , lovely fresh food can't be beaten for a peaceful haven to 'get away from it all' and...

Ging Oya Lodge was a lovely, peaceful way to start our holiday in Sri Lanka and we referred to it often on the rest of our trip. Leo and Myrjam provide perfectly furnished chalets with a private verandah to watch the birds and Eloise, the rescued cow. Everything is provided including air conditioning and mosquito nets and great fluffy towels.... More

What a wonderful way to end our five-week holiday in Sri Lanka. Ging Oya Lodge is perfection. A beautiful, comfortable, peaceful oasis, run by a lovely couple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone hoping to have a relaxing couple of days away from it all.

Coming back for the 5th or 6th time, we spent 5 nights here in August. Leo and Myrjam are wonderful hosts who will help with anything you request. The rooms are very spacious, the outdoor shower is amazing, the pool is large and clean and the (home cooked) food is excellent. The location of the lodge, in the middle of... More

Landing in Colombo this lodge was our first contact with Sri Lanka. We were a bit tired when we arrived , but after one day the atmosphere of the lodge, the quality of the food and the way we were taken care of, revitalised us. We couldn't dream a better start to visit the country

A wonderful week spent enjoying this wonderful riverside jungle lodge. Leo and Myrjam are friendly and very interesting hosts, and the site is fascinating and teeming with wildlife. We took advantage of the canoe and bikes to explore locally and enjoyed the experience immensely. Thank you Leo and Myrjam for your wonderful venue.

When a place is this good most of the positive remarks are already written. Our lodge style room and the service were superb. We enjoyed three nights of utter peace and time to reflect in a location that is poised for the airport. If you enjoy a family atmosphere you will enjoy the hosts/owners and their magnificent effort to meet... More

My partner visited the Lodge last year and has been talking about it ever since so i'm really pleased we managed to stay for a few days after visiting the bottom of Sri Lanka for a week. It is very convenient for Colombo airport. The grounds were much more spacious than I realised, the lodge was huge, Its hard to... More

I stayed in the Ging Oya Lodge on two occasions in January and February 2014 on arrival in Sri Lanka and on departure. I had stayed in a wide range of accommodation in Sri Lanka and this was undoubtedly the best value I came across for the standard of room and facilities. The bungalows are very roomy with a large...
