A Unique Story

Gal Oya Lodge is more than just a Sri Lankan ecolodge. Their philosophy lies at the heart of the design – to bring you closer to nature and to protect the local environment. The concept lives in every detail, from the undisturbed lush forest of our mountain site to the natural materials – such as cajan, wood and illuk – used to create their bungalows. And, of course, they use appropriate technology and recycling to preserve precious natural resources such as water and energy.

Deep Community Connections

Sri Lankan culture and tradition are the inspirational elements at the heart of Gal Oya Lodge. Their bungalows draw their character from rural Sri Lankan villages, created using local techniques, tried and tested over time. Their tables and chairs are handmade by local village craftsmen using teak and mara wood, applying traditional skills passed down from generation to generation.

Active Environmental Stewardship

Their enhanced Sri Lankan ecolodge concept follows environmentally sound practices including recycling, energy conservation, growing their own produce and using sustainable materials whenever they can. They have recently installed a wildlife training and research facility to work with local conservation organizations and to help protect wildlife.
