The Lanka Lodge, a holiday villa in colonial-style, lies amidst a 60000 square feet (5500 m²) property. It has a huge, amazing tropical garden surrounding it and is directly located at a nice, small bay of the Indian Ocean.
An offshore reef in the near vicinity of the Lodge invites you to snorkeling trips or you can simply enjoy the beautiful beaches around.
The large oval pool setting within the tropical garden makes the relaxing hours in or besides the pool even more enjoyable.
Enjoy the amazing sunsets after your Aryurveda massage.
Fully staffed. Car available on request for extra costs, tours and trips can be arranged.
We do not provide Drivers quarters at the Lodge.
However, we can arrange for lodgings close by at a very nominal sum
The staircase used to access the beach is been under maintenance.
I want to tell you that our stay in Lanka Lodge was like a dream. Your house is very pleasant, the garden and the pool are wonderfull.
I have spent a week in your house with my wife M., my brother in law J., my sister in law M. and a friend D.
Lianage has droven us during all our trip, he is a very good driver and has help us for the choice of visits and booking of hotels and restaurants.He is discreet, very ponctual, and the bus is very confortable and always very clean (and the tires are new :witch seem to be rare in Sri Lanka).
We have had with him two weeks very pleasant.
Kumare is very thoughfull and has bought for us all what we needed.
The meals of Kamal and his help cook were beter than all the restaurants of Sri Lanka.At the beginning we thought that we'll eat often outside, but after we have tasted his cooking, we were sad when we had to eat in a restaurant.
The gardener makes also his work very well and the garden is very nice.
Thank you to have such a good staff. People of Sri Lanka are very welcoming and its a real pleasure to communicate with them.I think that you must be very happy to help them.
We will advise your house to our friends who will come in Sri Lanka.
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.
Nach einer sechstägigen Rundreise durch ein an abwechslungsreiches Sri Lanka trafen wir am 29.8. auf der Lanka Lodge ein und wurden vom Team auf das herzlichste Empfangen.
So konnten wir diesen wunderschönen Ort zwölf Tage in vollen Zügen genießen:
• Der Tag beginnt mit einem fruchtigen Frühstück, dass keine Wünsche offen lässt. Danach geht es in den schönen Pool und zum Ausruhen auf die Hängematte und die Liegen.
• Mit Ausflügen an den hiesigen Strand, nach Weligama oder in die Umgebung verbrachten wir unsere Tage. Liyanage hat immer eine gute Empfehlung gehabt und uns immer bestens gefahren.
• (Nicht nur) Am Abend wurden wir von Kamal ausgezeichnet bekocht und von Kumara immer perfekt umsorgt.
Die Terrasse und der Garten laden zum Träumen ein. Begleitet wird das vom sanften Wind und dem beruhigenden Meeresrauschen.
Last not Least waren die Hunde für unsere Kinder ein Quell unablässiger Freude.
Es ist das traumhafte Haus, der bezaubernde Garten und der weite Blick auf das rauschende Meer welche die Lanka Lodge zu einem besonderen Ort machen. ABER ERST DURCH DAS TEAM: KUMARA, LYIANAGE, KAMAL, MALKA, AHINSAKA UND MUNIDAS, WIRD DARAUS EIN WIRKLICH MAGISCHER ORT
Liebes Lanka-Lodge-Team: wir sagen herzlichsten Dank für so viel Gastfreundschaft
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!!!
Wir verbringen bereits zum vierten Mal wunderbare Ferienwochen in der Lanka Lodge an der Südküste von Sri Lanka. Die Lodge ist eine einzigartige Oase der Erholung. Von der grossen Terrasse aus hat man einen herrlichen Blick aufs Meer. Wir reisen mit unsern 5 Kindern von 5- bis 18-jährig und den Grosseltern und alle sind begeistert. Die Fotos können die Schönheit der Lodge nur teilweise wiedergeben.
Zur Villa gehört ein grosses Auto, das von Liyanage sicher chauffiert wird. Kumare organisiert alles, was man im Alltag benötigt. Das Abendessen wird von Kamal nach Wunsch zubereitet, Malka sorgt für Ordnung und Sauberkeit im Haus und der Gärtner kümmert sich um die Pflege der wunderschönen und grosszügigen Parkanlage. Die Betreuungs-Crew ist uns mittlerweile ans Herz gewachsen. Eine Reise wert sind allein die schönen Sonnenuntergänge, die man vom Haus aus hat. Wenn es einmal regnen sollte, dann bietet die grosse Terrasse genügend Raum um sich dennoch wohl fühlen zu können.
Wer Aktivitäten sucht, findet hier alles in der Umgebung, vom Schnorcheln, Delphine und Wale besichtigen bis zur Schlangenfarm und dem authentischen Wochenmarkt. Der grosse Mirissa Beach ist nur wenige Autominuten entfernt. Auch ein Ausflug nach Galle oder in einen der Nationalparks lohnt sich. Es ist dann jeweils herrlich, gegen Abend wieder in das Idyll der Lodge zurückkehren zu können.
Wir kommen wieder und freuen uns bereits aufs nächste Mal.
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 have been to the Lanka lodge two times. Each times it was very relaxing. The staff of the lodge was like a big family for us. Every day we enjoyed fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner. The driver of the lodge showed us the sights of the island, he is a very good driver and sightseeing guide.
We remember us very often at this holiday, fraught with happiness and peace.
We will come back one time again.
