I attended an Animal Communication Workshop and Wild Dolphin Retreat that was being held at Gala-Gala and Bev and Mandy made us all feel at home from the minute we arrived to the last second before our departure.

The rooms are wonderfully simplistic and you can hear the ocean when lying in bed at night - what a better way to fall asleep?!

The food was absolutely delicious and nothing was too much trouble. There is also a fully equipped communal kitchen where you can prepare your own food if preferred or required.

We were well and truly spoilt and I cannot wait to go back to the tranquility and beauty of Gala-Gala.

This is truly my version of heaven on earth and it would not be complete without my new friends - Bev and Mandy and all their beautiful and friendly fur-babies.

Thank you guys for the best time ever!! See you soon :)

Lots of love,
Nelmie

I have just returned from running a Wild Dolphin Retreat and Animal Communication experience which we hosted at Gala Gala. I cannot thank Bev and Mandy enough for an amazing time. The food was just delicious, the accommodation incredible and their hospitality was superb. They made my guests and participants feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. They really went above and beyond and by the time we left it was like leaving family. Thank you Bev and Mandy for an exceptional week. I would highly recommend Gala Gala to all, individual and groups wanting run retreats. It is amazing and work 6 never mind 5 stars. Love and blessings. Tammy

Bev and Mandy are fantastic hosts. Chalets are rustic but very comfortable and clean. Set in peaceful, tranquil surroundings. Within a longush walking distance from the beach and market. The best secret...the food is five star!

My girlfriend and I spent only one night at Gala-Gala and were very grateful for Mandy and Bev's hospitality. We emailed at very short notice the day before, asking for a nights accommodation as well as a dive the following morning. Unfortunately strong winds meant that we weren't able to dive but but all was set for us at very short notice. Our reed cabin was very enjoyable and the grounds were kept very neat. We were able to walk about 1km to the main area with beach, restaurants and shops - it is vey safe there. The bar area at Gala-Gala appeared to be slightly more rustic than would be ideal but overall the eco-resort is definitely recommeded. Take a walk to the 3 viewing decks and look for whales and dolphins. Walk along the pristine beaches directly from Gala-Gala property. Would love to go back and attempt a dive again!
