Guest reviews on TripAdvisor

Below is a selection of recent reviews and comments from our guests on their stay at Ging Oya Lodge.

"Myrjam and Leo have created a wonderful place at Ging Oya Lodge with minimal impact on the natural environment. Spacious, airy bungalows are reached by paths which wind between coconut palms & other native trees, affording privacy and quietness. It was so calm and peaceful to sit on the verandah overlooking the river and watch the tropical birds, a perfect retreat."
