A wonderful stay at a truly unique place - one of the highlights of our trip to Sri Lanka. We were woken by monkeys peering in at the window, incredible. Wonderful hospitality and food from a place with an amazing ethos. Would thoroughly recommend.

The forest lodge is well worth a visit. We stayed for 3 nights and loved the Bird / insect noises from the accommodation. Great well designed areas to hang out and chill especially the upper deck of the lodge overlooking the lake. Close (by taxi) to amazing ancient temples and s…

I am the owner of Galkadawala Forest Lodge. After 25 years in the rat race, started what I always wanted to do .... a Lodge in the wilderness where one can enjoy nature as it is. I enjoy it very much, especially hosting others who wants to experience it. I love their company!
