We just returned from Galvladi and it is probably the most secluded elegant lodge we have stayed. Galvladi is tastefully decorated, extremely clean, and well planned lodge. Absolutely beautiful accommodations! The property it is on is extensive, so we were never bothered by traffic sounds like in so many luxurious b&bs. This is a place to come and stay because you will want to do just that when you see this place. 3 gourmet meals for 2 are included per day, so it is very reasonably priced considering all the amenities. It is perfect for a romantic getaway or hikers since it has its owns hiking trails. Dave is the ultimate host, so personable and informative; and Terry is absolutely the best gourmet chef with the healthiest meals. We were blown away about how wonderful this place is!!!!!
