The hotel is open around 5 years but still everythings is as new.I never see it in another hotels in Sri Lanka. I can recomend everyone who like nature and relax.

If you appreciate nature, tranquility and real downtime, then Galavilla is for you. It is worth every minute drive on real bumpy road up to mountains, yes its hard to reach but who said good things come easy? When you reach you feel you have landed in paradise. Service is impeccable, especially in the restaurant. All the fruits and veggies are coming straight from their beautiful garden. If you book, 2 nights is minimum, with one you will not really get the taste of it.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING.... this place is pure bliss. Do not be put off by other reviews regarding the location. The drive is fine and safe and you will see beautiful views on the way up. The food and service is great and the views and pool are magnificent. I cannot wait to return to this steal of a resort.

We had money stolen out of a locked safe, and the management were not interested at all. It was 1 hour trek up a mountain track, which we did not know until we arrived.

Stayed 8 nights in Nov 2018
