Rukgala Retreat


On the serene banks of Victoria Lake, the Rukgala Retreat offers respite from the rush of city sightseeing, and a chance to revitalise yourself in the crisp air of the tea-covered hills, just an hour or so from Kandy.

Sister property to the nearby Ashburnham Estate, this understated boutique has a similar feeling of contemporary chic. Go paddle boarding or kayaking on the lake, try wild swimming, take a yoga class, and trek across the hillside.

Leisure: kayaking, paddle boarding, yoga, tea trekking

Rooms: 8 rooms & suites
