Our family of 4 enjoyed one of our best ever holidays staying at Lanka Lodge. The quiet, secluded location overlooking the Indian Ocean, set in a wonderful, large garden is very impressive. The spacious airy bedrooms are set around an internal courtyard. There is a huge verandah with dining table and arm chairs with a great view of the local wildlife, fireflies, kingfishers, chameleon, monitor lizards through the palm trees, past the pool to the sea. But perhaps the best thing about Lanka Lodge is the staff. Kumal produces really delicious meals, Kumare looks after you, Malka's smile makes the mornings even sunnier and Lianage will drive and guide you safely and calmly on trips out, if you can bring yourselves to leave. Andrea, the owner responded very rapidly to my emails, when we booked and has made the booking process easy and well organised. There is lots to do in the area, a variety of beaches for surfing and snorkelling, whale watching in Mirissa, the Dutch fort in Galle, are close by and Yala and other national parks are in reach for a day out.
We were a party of 8 with ages ranging from 30's to 70's. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful peaceful spot. The staff were lovely - always cheerful and ready to help. Kumala ran the house very efficiently and unobtrusively always making it feel it was 'our place'. Lucky cooked really delicious meals - some of the best we had in Sri Lanka. In fact, for my birthday celebration we decided not to eat out and had a special meal which was enhanced by the fact that Kumala had made the garden really pretty with lots of flaming lamps. We would love to return one day.
I usually don't write reviews and I have never given 5 stars on a review that I have written as of yet but this time I am compelled to do so! This place was so amazing! Total relaxation and a very personal, loyal staff to take care of all your needs. The location is perfect as it is close to several attractions that you can get to during a day's drive. It was even hard to leave the property itself as it was very clean, great views, and the staff was just awesome. The cooking by the staff was really one of the best culinary experiences I have ever had and I have been to over 80 countries....again, the food was unbelieveably good! The driver was very knowledgable and he knew exactly the right places to go whether it was a day's excursion to a national park, a historic town, or just the beach. He knew all the right places to go and we were driven in a very nice air conditioned van where you can really relax and enjoy! The service was airport pick-up to airport drop-off....perfect. My family, friends, and I are very satisfied with our stay and we will be recommending this place to everyone we know. You will not regret staying here and it will be difficult to leave, especially the warm and curtious staff. I usually never return to the same place twice but we will for sure be coming back here on our next trip to Sri Lanka. Many thanks to the owner and staff!!!
