Maison spacieuse et très bien équipée, située au bord du lac, quartier très calme et villageois très aimables. Accueil absolument sympathique par le personnel. Nous y avons passé des vacances de rêve.

“a wonderful place.....”

Gangananda is really a wonderful villa to stay: very spacious and perfectly maintained, modern setup, a great pool, the staff is very friendly and the food excellent ! Thanks a lot to Damianthi, Muthu, Susil and Supun, and most of all to Sudath, the Manager, who makes sure you won't miss anything during your stay....

We have just returned from 5 glorious days at Gangananda. What a fantastic time we had. We were 4 adults and 2 young children. The villa was spotless, spacious and the staff superb! Couldn't fault a thing! We enjoyed swimming in the beautiful pool, watching the sunset, walking to the beach, feeding elephants, going to Galle, the turtle hatchery, going out in the boat, seeing a tea plantation, cinnamon farms and so much more. I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anybody! Thank you so much for everything. We will be back.

“Very happy”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2014

My wife and l, our 3 adult daughters and 1 son-in-law spent a blissful 9 days at this villa doing very little other than lying in the sun and occupying the pool. We were not expecting anything like the 5 star service we received from the staff who did everything in a calm,efficient, unobtrusive way. We cannot recommend this villa highly enough

“Relaxing in pure comfort”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2014

We've just come back from a weeks stay at Gangananda, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the villa is beautifully done, fresh flowers floating in the pots by the pool each morning were just one touch that made the whole environment both relaxing and beautiful, the staff who looked after us were superb, attentive when required but otherwise you just didn't know they were there. Food is great; lots of amazing dishes teach night to try. We felt thoroughly spoilt. The village setting just added to the whole ambiance, everyone in the village so friendly and interested in you. We are already planning our next stay.

“Paradise experience”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2013

We stayed for 3 weeks in this splendid villa. In reality the villa is even more beautiful then what you see on the pictures. Our family consisted of 3 adults and 2 small children. The villa is very beautiful, spacious, very well equiped and beautifully decorated up to the smallest detail.The villa comes with full service of 4 staff members and an excellent local host Sudath who is invaluable, very knowledgable and full of suggestions for places of interests and excursions and available instantly at any hour of the day and even night when necessary. All of us enjoyed the local cuisine prepared by the 2 very friendly ladies Damianthi and Sunetra. Every meal was a feast enjoyed by all of us. The location of the villa is very nice, surrounded by a nice garden and overlooking the lake. We also enjoyed the daily visits in the garden of different birds, squirrels, bats, butterflies, dragon lizards swimming in the lake. We wished we could have stayed 3 months instead of 3 weeks

“Superbe villa”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

Super séjour dans un cadre splendide La maison de Gangananda est une merveille : chaque espace est minutieusement pensé afin de passer des moments de détente : de vraies vacances. L'équipe sur place est irréprochable et a toujours le sourire : Sudath est particulièrement attentionné afin d'organiser toute activité dans les meilleures conditions. Quel havre de bonheur de séjourner en ce lieu après une journée à la découverte des sites très variés de ce pays : un autre monde. Le rêve ? Une seule envie : y revenir au plus vite. Une adresse à recommander les yeux fermés

“Incredible gangananda”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

My family of 4 (2 children ages 7 & 11) have just returned from our Sri Lankan holiday where we were incredibly fortunate enough to have booked a villa with the lovely Bruno & Nicole (owners). Their villas are in ambalangoda a small seaside village about 10 mins tuk tuk ride from Hikkaduwa (also not far from the expressway from Colombo to Galle). We spent 7 nights in the villa. Its an incredibly beautiful villa .. speechless really (less than 6 months old). 3 air con bedrooms, two huge living areas, cable tv, kitchen to cook (or in our case make cuppas & keep our drinks cold) With the lagoon, swimming pool, monkeys, monitor lizards, many different types of birdlife in your back yard its actually hard to leave the place to venture out. Breakfast on the verandah each day plentiful & tasty. We could choose between western & sri lankan style or both (I now have an addiction for passionfruit/mango jam on toast) Each day we ventured out with Manju one of the villas tuk tuk drivers. He was a lovely guy, safe driver & we really felt sad saying goodbye to him at the end of the week. The villa manager Sadath would pop in each day to check on us & ensure that we were happy & comfortable. He took us out for a ride in the lagoon on the motorised boat. The villa staff (two girls who cooked for us, did our washing & two guys who kept an eye on the place) were lovely & spoilt us rotten. We mainly opted to have dinner in the villa each night, as it was easy & delicious, with two children at the end of the day. The booking process, transfers etc smooth & easy. I actually loved dealing with Bruno & would love to meet him someday. The beach is an easy 5 minute walk away & you would be lucky to spot anyone on it. Clean white sand & aquamarine water.The area is also excellent for exploring with children. Lots to see. Trust me its incredible & you will fall in love with the place like we did. Thankyou we hope to come back someday.

“Just stunning...”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2012

Our experience at the new Gangananda Villa can be expressed in one statement: we did not want to leave and would have extended our time if possible... but we know we will be back! The villa itself offers all amenities needed for urban living, while providing the comfort and serenity of a village hide-away. The construction is very unique as the top roof is built to ventilate the villa smoothly with a tropical breeze, it gives you a sense of spacious living and adds a very charming splendor, and character to the villa.. Wonderful open-plan living. It's a perfect location for lovers of the countryside. The best thing about this tranquil place was the view from the terrace over the river and the various sounds of nature. During the Daytime you can listen to birds while in the night you will be entertained by a concerto of crickets and frogs. We woke up every morning after 6 to watch nature awake... There is a small catamaran and you can paddle on the river. In front is a little bird island and you can go around. Don't miss the outstanding ditches the ladies will cook for you. We just adore the peace and tranquility one feels. In short - magnifique! Thank you so much Nicole and Bruno!
