Rukgala Retreat is a boutique hotel designed to offer a retreat-style experience for guests keen to escape the more traditional resorts.
Without subscribing too stiffly to notions of ‘wellness’ it offers an active, healthy stay with yoga, guided hikes, biking and wild swimming, all readily available.
With just 10 guest bedrooms the property has a relaxed, informal style; dining space is sometimes shared and not often a la carte.
Set on the shores of the Victoria Lake, the backdrop is stunning and provides ample opportunity for exploration. Village life nearby gives a great taste of rural Sri Lanka.
