Rukgala (Central Sri Lanka)

Welcome to Rukgala

Perched on a rock, surrounded by tropical jungle and overlooking Victoria reservoir (lake) and mountains beyond, Rukgala is located in one of the most beautiful settings in Sri Lanka.
There is a health and wellness theme running throughout, with delicious locally produced food and drink, swimming and yoga on site and a host of activities on land and water. It's suited to those who want to learn, explore and immerse themselves in the local culture and wilderness.

Rooms with a view

The 8 en-suite bedrooms are spread out across two buildings and comprise of twin, double and family options. The main building has four bedrooms and are closest to the main communal areas.
The stunning garden cottage has four separate rooms and each has a cute mezzanine level with an extra single/day bed. All of the room offer beautiful views of the lush garden, lake and mountains.

Food & drink

Rukgala teamed up with some amazingly talented and creative folk to design a very special and unique menu. They've focused on showing off wonderful Sri Lankan flavours but also coming up with vegan and vegetarian options that don't rely entirely on the 'rice and curry' staple. You leave feeling refreshed, healthy and energised which is a rare treat on a holiday!

What our guests say...

“I was so tired and worn out when I walked in. I am leaving totally refreshed, peaceful and absolutely healthy - Gosh do I have to leave? Loved every minute of the Glow Weekend. Thank you"


"A truly magical and spiritual space which envelops you entirely in the healing and energising powers from our beloved mother Earth. The space and design is so beautifully achieved, the food divine (especially the gluten-free bread!) and the staff very friendly and helpful. A perfect coming together of a very special space. Thank you for hosting us."

"Incredible, magical, mystical. RUKGALA. Thank you for an amazing weekend of great service, community and inspiration."



Rukgala is located in central Sri Lanka, just to the east of Kandy. It's tropical so there is a chance of rain but the weather is hot and normally a swim in the lake or pool is very welcoming after a local walk.
