Our second visit to Sri Lanka and this time six weeks in the country with parents-in-law. Ging Oya was the perfect place to start with four nights acclimatisation. The cottages are very clean, well appointed and comfortable. Excellent value for money. The grounds are spacious and relaxing (and of particular interest to us, filled with birds), complete with a beautiful... More

Chose to spend a few nights here at the end of our month long trip. Lovely location on the banks of the river with spacious clean chalet overlooking the lake and wonderful grounds. Breakfasts were plentiful set in a lovely open sided room overlooking the pool, and although the evening meal was a fixed menu we thoroughly enjoyed every one... More

Ging Oya was the perfect place to land after a long flight in a calm, lovely riverside setting. Our cabin was very comfortable, clean, spacious. Marijam and Leo are the perfect hosts, welcoming, informative about the area and helpful arranging drivers, tuck tuks, etc. The pool is lovely. Within walking distance is an Ayurvedic spa, restaurants, the beach. Our stay... More

We spent two nights at Ging Oya in early January 2016. The setting is beautiful and it is obvious that Myrjam and Leo have put a lot of love into the place. It is a great setting to just kick back and chill, with no phones or TV to be seen and WiFi only in the common area around the... More

Spent Christmas here and it was the best place we stayed in our 3 week trip around Sri Lanka. Airport pickup was very convenient. It's a beautifully laid out little haven. Spotless room with big comfy bed and the best mossie nets on the island! Myriam runs the service impeccably and Leo is a fabulous cook. The pool is a... More

A fellow guest described Ging Oya Lodge as an 'oasis of heaven' and it is the perfect description. Myrjam and Leo are the perfect hosts, nothing being too much trouble: drivers, taxis, tuck-tuks arranged, advice given...they even stayed up to accommodate my son's late arrival from the airport. Everywhere is peaceful and tranquil with the river flowing peacefully past the... More

It surpassed our expectations & beyond, we loved the tranquility & being surrounded by the wildlife, the resident dogs & Elodie the cow. Our lodge was spacious, clean & comfortable & the perfect base for our 2 week stay exploring... More

one of the nicest places we staid. Very spacious rooms / cottages with lovely semi-outdoor attached bathroom, nice pool and large garden with various 'hidden' seating areas. Only downside the food was quite average, although you paid premium prices for it.
