“A Serene Lake Cottage!”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is a beautiful, brand new, cozy lake cottage with a cute poo on a large property. It is tucked away from the bustle of the nearby village - wake up to the birds chirping, an occasional rooster or a dog in the distance - nature at its best! Spend the day lounging on the porch, reading your favorite book, lounging in the pool and taking a stroll across this expansive property with vegetable & fruit gardens to complement. What better way to unwind away from the rest of the world, a must!

“Absolutely Incredible! Beautiful and serene lake front property.”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Incredible stay at Dansala cottage by the lake. Pristine property next to beautiful Koggala Lake. Great location near southern beaches and Galle Fort. Wonderful service and amenities. Fast wifi and good A/C. Recently added pool makes a perfect addition. Loved how it had all the amenities but still had the charm of a traditional cottage. Couldn't ask for anything better!

“Wonderful property, great house!”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The house is very well maintained -- each bedroom has a private slate bathroom with modern fixtures. Best part of the house is the veranda which was a wonderful place to entertain during the day. There's a nice day bed and ample seating space, as well as a really cool, modern pool. We ended up spending a good amount of time lounging, reading, playing soccer, and entertaining out here. Great property -- totally recommend!

“Tranquil Beauty at Dansala along Koggala Lake”
Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Dansala feels timeless. The simple, yet modern, cottage alongside Lake Koggala was the ideal home for our party of 4. We were considering staying at a beach villa, but had read some great things about Koggala Lake - so we decided to give Dansala Cottage a shot. We are so glad we did. The cottage is tucked away - about 5 minutes from the main road; once you enter the estate gates you are welcomed by a orchard of fruit and spice trees. The cottage has 2 tastefully decorated rooms and a beautiful kitchen with every furnishing you need. My favorite part is the veranda, where you can watch the sunset over the shimmering lake - and take a dip in the pool! We'll definitely be back to Dansala next time we are in Sri Lanka. Thank you!
