“Handugoda Lodge is paradise and relaxation hidden in the Sri Lankan jungle”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

If your looking for escapism and total relaxation Handugoda Lodge is where you will find it. Beautifully situated in the middle of know where, but actually only 15mins tuk tuk ride to the sandy beaches, this really is a stunning house to stay.
Simplicity and comfort in all the rooms and the kitchen living area opens out onto the beautiful garden with pool and eating areas.
You can see and hear the peacocks and moneys in the trees and when nighttime falls the sky if filled with the sparkling lights from the fireflies that are all around.
We can't wait for our next visit.

We visited the wonderful Handugoda Lodge for a few days in early August as part of our trip to Sri Lanka. Beautifully situated 'away from it all' amidst paddy fields, the view from the house is stunning, and the peaceful atmosphere is incredibly relaxing. Perfect for any yoga lovers. Peacocks, monkeys and chipmunks were easily spotted from the garden, and at night the fireflies were magical! There is a lovely small pool, and Mala, the housekeeper, was on hand during the day to cater to our needs with her utterly delicious breakfast and Sri Lankan curry for dinner. The house is also ideally situated for visits to Galle and Unawatuna

“A wonderful experience !”

We stayed at Handugoda Lodge for 2 1/2 weeks and loved everything about it.
The house has a lovely ambience, is tastefully decorated, very clean with a gorgeous pool and the rural setting is very tranquil surrounded by rice paddies and birdsong.
Mala the housekeeper is lovely (we enjoyed her cooking so much :) and CJ the manager was fantastic to deal with too.
Wijaya beach and Galle are a short 10-15 min tuk tuk ride away when you want to get out and explore.
We would recommend this place to Families and couples wanting a beautiful tranquil place.
