This is a uniquely curated retreat you wouldn’t want to miss! Feel free to pick and choose what you'd like to do; it's your holiday respite after-all ;). However, we recommend you do all activities as its all a part of the very special introductory package:
- Scenic hike to Bambaragala with adventure guide Aravinda (optional)- Kayak at the nearby lake (optional)- Yoga and meditation sessions with Jessyca (optional)- Talk with wellness coach Mei (optional)- Healthy meals by in-house chef at Rukgala- Accommodation at the Rukgala Retreat Garden Cottages- Access to the gorgeous pool at the premises- Transportation to and from Kandy
LOCATION-----------------Rukgala was conceived from a passion and enthusiasm for this very beautiful and still pretty unknown part of Sri Lanka. Out of a crumbly, empty old house the founder has fashioned something that will make an ideal sanctuary, both for those wanting extended retreat space and those just seeking a shorter escape in the hills. Rukgala sits wonderfully close to lesser-known temples, lush green tea estates, the untouched mountains of The Knuckles and secluded villages that dot the shores of the Victoria Lake. Try kayaking on the lake; hiking to the caves of the Bambaragala; or plunge under waterfalls in the foothills of the Knuckles.
All organizing, transportation and food are taken care of, so you can simply relax, and enjoy this splendid retreat we have tailored for you…
