Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Gangananda Villa on the Laguna in Ambalangoda, Nr. Galle, Sri Lanka - Peaceful Location, Birds And Animals Viewing, 0.5 Mile From Beach

Stunning luxury Villa by the river Madampe, Ambalangoda, Sri Lanka, 750m from the beach, air con, free wifi. Breakfasts are included and a staff of 4 with cleaning, laundry and a manager. Unique location on the Laguna, close to the famous Galle fort, UNESCO site, and very close to the busy touristy city of Hikkaduwa. You will be in a small village, in front of a small grocery shops for your basic needs. We have a tuktuk service for transportations, and a taxi van for longer tours. The location is very quiet and yet close to the city. Very close to the railway station, the bus stand, and the new expressway to Colombo. You can visit the laguna with our electric boat. Sunsets in front are stunning as the light ends up into the patio. The infinity pool is 16' x 50' with different levels in front for kids of different ages. Maximum depth is 5'. Guard in the service house 24/24.

About the Owner

We are a french couple who fell in love with Sri-Lanka.

We rent out 4 houses in Ambalangoda, 3 on the beach and one on the laguna. We try to offer perfect vacation for every budget.

We try to offer for rent the kind of place we would like to find.

Stunning villa in a beautiful tranquil location

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Ganganada and it was just as good as the first.

This is such a modern, spacious villa. It's lovely having 3 bedrooms, huge living area and private pool rather than being cramped into a hotel room.

The staff are all great and really helpful ( the villa comes with a chef, pool boy and cleaner. A manager lives close by to be on hand to organise day trips and transport.

Food was great - marmalade and passion fruit jam at breakfast are so good that this time I preordered 4 jars to take home with us!

As I mentioned, the food at the villa is fantastic, however the last night we went to Mangrovia Lagoon Restaurant, just outside Hikkaduwa, right on the Lagoon- one of the most memorable meals I have had in a long time. Absolutely stunning location serving gorgeous homemade Italian food. A Sri Lankan lady owns the restaurant and she does all the cooking and service. She worked in a restaurant in Italy for over 20 years so she really knows her stuff.

Back to Gangananda, I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Great for families or for a small group of friends. Total relaxation, a great place to unwind and recharge the batteries whilst watching the water monitor lizards swim in lagoon and monkeys jumping in the trees. Bliss
