What can we say - staying at Galkadawala is a unique experience and a perfect base for the cultural triangle. As many have said, the food is amazing too!

Maulie is the best! Kind, helpful and knowledgeable about the local history. The place is amazing - the best location (located in lovely surroundings next to a lake), really tasty Srilankan food and a friendly and helpful staff.

It was an amazing experience for us staying at Maulie’s lodge. The rooms are beautiful and so is the scenery. There was some difficulty with communication during a dinner meal that resulted in us eating milk curd in a curry (we are both vegan). We were a little disappointed there…

This secluded lodge is absolutely beautiful and peaceful hidden away in the jungle. You can easily do day trips to surrounding towns and sites, and Maulie will organise anything you need - we did a day trip to Pollonuwara in a tuk yuk and had the best driver!

A lovely peaceful retreat - fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the forest. Super food though expensive - it should be included in the price, especially as there is nowhere viable to eat nearby. Definitely go for a kayak on the tank !

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!
