Perfect and unique place, wonderful stay!”
If you want to enjoy Galle but don't want to suffer the noise from the town, in a really beautiful, peaceful and luxuriant place... I definitely recommend you to stay at Ginganga Lodge for a few nights (the place is only a few minutes drive by tuk tuk from Galle Fort). The staff is really really (did I say REALLY?) friendly and helpful, especially the owner Indika. The place was opened only a few months ago, everything is brand new and the rooms are big and nicely decorated, so it's really the best time to give it a try. :) ---------- Si vous voulez appréciez Galle sans subir le bruit et l'agitation de la ville, dans un bel endroit avec un cadre luxuriant et apaisant... je vous recommande définitivement de passer quelques nuits au Ginganga Lodge (le lodge est seulement à quelques minutes de tuk tuk du fort). Le staff, etven particulier le propriétaire Indika, est vraiment vraiment (vraiment !) gentil et à l'écoute et fera tout son possible pour vous vous permettre de passer le meilleur séjour possible. Le lodge n'a ouvert qu'il y a quelques mois, tout est neuf et les chambres sont grandes et très joliment décorées, donc c'est le meilleur moment pour découvrir cet endroit :)
Fabulous boutique hotel in the idyllic setting”
Ginganga Lodge is a fantastic boutique hotel in the middle of the greenery and away from the noise of Galle (yet only a 10 min ride by tuk tuk). The place is so calm that you hear birds sing and monkeys jump on the roof. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated; outdoor shower is totally amazing. We were lucky to celebrate Christmas there and the food was absolutely top notch. And so is the breakfast! The swimming pool is perfect for the relaxing afternoon accompanied by great cocktails and nice music. Most importantly, Indika, his wife and their staff are amazing hosts and they went out of their way to make this experience truly unforgettable. The only thing I regret is that we could not stay longer. Thank you for the great time at Ginganga Lodge!
Exceptional - destination relaxation ”
This is the place to stay in Galle if you are looking for 5 star service and accommodation. Ginganga Lodge is a small stylish boutique hotel that’s a short tuk tuk ride to the old fort. The gardens are beautiful and provide the flowers that are displayed in the rooms. The architecture and decor have been skilfully designed by the owners Indika and Dineshi and are superb. Indika and his staff provide a high level of service that is unobtrusive. Indika is able to arrange transportation, day trips and seems to be able to meet all guests needs. He is fully committed to ensuring that you enjoy your stay which we certainly did. We were also impressed by the owners environmentally friendly approach to running the hotel. Highly recommended.
The Perfect Retreat in Galle”
Just think about a refuge of incredible and massive beauty, where you will have the opportunity to breathe peace and calmness, ten minutes away of Galle, a place where you are going to be pampered by its friendly and always smiling Staff, where you will be delighted with stunning breakfast and dinner that fulfil your wishes, where you can enjoy the Beauty of Sri Lanka's Jungle, a place beautifully designed surrounded of good taste... That was the experience we got in Ginganga Lodge, simply Superb!
Fabulous restful set of Lodges with great pool”
This is an exceptional value for money place to stay. Accommodation is in 5 lodges which are large. Swimming pool is spotless and large and poolside loungers are very very comfortable. Snacks can be purchased and chilled water is freely available. The quality of the food is superb and freshly cooked to your order. You can watch it being cooked if you want as the kitchen is an area of the wonderful open sided "teak pagoda". The grounds are visited by all sorts of birds and we were lucky to see a tribe of mauve faced monkeys pass through. NOT maquettes, but gorgeous quite timid monkeys. The staff are like a family but not intrusive and will do anything to help and assist. Ask when you want a lift in the tuk tuk to Galle town and they will take you there for less than £1 , just 200LKR and will bring you back if you want at a pre arranged time or if you phone them. We spent some days just relaxing by the pool enjoying the surroundings. Wifi is excellent in your room or by pool. Fabulous
A an amazing place quiet comfortable Place. ”
The only con is it is a 10 min tuk tuk ride from the fort. However, that can also be a plus and when you arrive it is so quiet and peaceful. You are surround in nature (flora and fana). At breakfast each morning a saw a couple of mongoose. There was also a male peacock one afternoon. Indica, the owner will give provide rides to and from the fort for a reasonable charge. This is very nice as you do t have to neigoiate each time. The room was stunning and very comfortable complete with and outdoor bathroom. The rest of the facialites were also very nice, open restaurant/lobby to the pool. I only had one meal here and it was very good. Indica also is very helpful at arranging daily exclusions. He took to the lake for a boat ride and then to see the cinniman couple. This is a must stay while in Galle.
We spent 7 nights in Ginganga. It was a great time spent last week of our honeymoon. We stayed in a beautiful villa with an outdoor shower. An unforgettable impression of dripping when monkeys look at you;). the rooms are spacious, with a well designed arrangement. The owner of Indika together with the whole team in a brilliant way pamper their guests and fulfill every wish. The food is delicious. Is a unique place where we felt like special guests at every moment of our stay - brilliant! Last evening stuff made big suprise- especialy for us romantic dinner. We never forget You, and this place- a piece of heaven to be here. Thank You!

A must-stay in Galle!”
An amazing luxury boutique eco lodge, family run, and this is what makes it. Dineshi, Indika, and Burnie are soooo lovely. They organised our wedding, and made us feel like family. Facilities wise, there are 5 rooms I think, set in an old rubber plantation, with a nice pool, surrounded by balsa trees, and connected by rampways. We saw monkeys, lizards, mongoose, birds, butterflies, and many beautiful flowers. You eat in an open area near the pool, and you can watch the cook. Tables were set with flowers in the evening. Menu is simple and good, we likes the cheese kottu. It's about 10 minutes to the fort area. Do yourself a favour and chill out here.
Amazing hotel, beautiful facilities. Very, very helpful staff who did everything possible to make sure our stay was relaxing and fulfilling. Each day our activities were organised for us - whether that was a tuk tuk ride (at local prices) to the beach, a trip to a tea plantation or a bigger safari trip. The rooms are beautiful, secluded and very close to nature. All in all, I can highly recommend staying here.
treasure in the jungle”
Not the excellent comfort, the very nice layout, the delicious food and the furniture make the difference to other hotels, but above all many little things, which one does not expect, make this hotel a special treasure: the flowers on the table before the meal, Incense next to the tables and sun loungers by the pool, mineral water in the room in beautiful glass bottles, the staff runs barefoot. So it was very difficult for us to leave after 3 days. It was a great day for relaxation of soul and spirit.
Can’t really fault this place, the owner Indaka is amazing and really goes above and beyond to make his guests feel welcome and comfortable. They run a convenient (and cheaper than local prices) tuk tuk into town and neighbouring areas. Food there is a little hut an miss but overall the people,location, atmosphere and attention that is provided here is second to none. We will certainly be back!
This place is a gem!”
We loved staying here, in fact it was magical. Surrounded by song birds, peacocks, mokeys and a charming kitten named Ginger. The staff was very friendly and very efficient. The pool and rooms just lovely and romantic. The owner clearly loves the property and cares about his clients, not to mention he is very friendly. We can't wait to go back and stay here.
Incredible is an understatement. This was by far our favourite place we stayed at during our 2 week trip around Sri Lanka. The staff were welcoming, friendly, accommodating and went above and beyond. It was a secluded oasis but not too far from town. We wish we could have stayed longer. Could not recommend any higher!
We loved it here! The best place we stayed in our 3 week trip in Sri Lanka. STAFF, FOOD, COMFORTABLE ....Beautiful property and details were amazing!
Wonderful hospitality, outstanding place. Magical atmosphere and excellent value for money. Thank you Indika and Dineshi.
It's the best place I stayed in srilanka”
Perfect place! Very nice staff and boss!
Breakfast was very good.
A treasure is Galle. Blissful, serene and it just felt right. ”
The place blends right in with nature. It doesn't try to stand out but it blends right in and it almost camouflages itself . You can Tell the owner Indika respects nature. The place is done in such a way that it doesn't disturb it's green surroundings but a mutual respect is evident that the nature gives back by keeping this amazing place cool and healthy and healing it is own way. The food is excellent . I will definitely call it gourmet food. All freshly prepared with love. The staffs were absolutely wonderful. The owner- Indika and his wife makes you feel right at home. Extremely helpful and always available. Definitely the best place I have stayed in colombo. I only wish I stayed longer. And oh the residency dog- Rover , I miss him already. ♥️ We also got the amazing cinnamon room fresher! Can't wait to come back to this treasure in Galle !
