The Lake House - Koggala Sri Lanka

Overview of The Lake House - Koggala

The Lake House is a private, architect-designed, contemporary and sustainable villa on Koggala Lake, near the historic town of Galle in Southern Sri Lanka.  A tranquil and picturesque home minutes from the hustle and bustle of Galle, within hearing distance of the Indian Ocean and accessible to many tourist attractions nearby.  Watch the fisherman drift by, eat crab and prawns from the lake, find delight in the tropical garden and take life at a slower pace.

The Lake House is available to rent.  It is fully staffed with a great cook - who will cook Sri Lankan or European food -  two house boys, night security and gardener. 

The house will accommodate 2 or 8 people:  either feels entirely comfortable.  A further twin bedded room with en suite bathroom can also be available on request.  The spacious sitting room and dining room is open with views over the swimming pool and lake beyond.

The house is within easy reach of Colombo international airport. We can meet guests by air conditioned limo at the airport or you can fly by seaplane and land on the lake. 

Accommodation of The Lake House - Koggala

The Lake House is a contemporary home built using Sri Lankan craftsmen and materials. It has been designed to be as energy efficient and low-impact as possible and uses the natural breeze from the sea and lake to cool the house, supplemented with ceiling fans, rather than air conditioning.  Water is heated using solar power - and so is some of the outdoor lighting.

There are 4 double bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, 3 of which have outdoor showers.  A further twin bedded room with en suite bathroom is available on request.  There is a very large open plan dining, sitting and games area which overlooks the pool and the lake.  The swimming pool is ideal for exercise and leisure and has an area for sitting and sunbathing around it.  There is a massage room and a canoe for use on the lake.  A tuk tuk is available - you need pay only for the petrol.  Further tuk tuks can be easily hired and a car and driver can also be rented, either for the whole stay or for individual excursions.

There is a Bose music system - you can plug in your ipod or your computer.

The house has Wi-Fi throughout.

There is an excellent cook, two house boys, gardener and night watchman who will look after you and do their best to ensure you have a wonderful stay. 

Dining of The Lake House - Koggala


The house comes with an excellent cook who will prepare European or Sri Lankan dishes at your request.  Breakfast is included in the rental but charges for lunch and dinner depend on your choice of menu.  Typically the cost varies between $5 (e.g. light lunch dish) and $15 per person for a main course (e.g.for crab or prawns) and $2-$4 for a starter or pudding. There is a menu of things to choose from (with prices)  and, if you would prefer to have an alternative, our cook will let you know the approximate cost in advance.
