Rukgala offers space for both group retreats and private stays. The property provides a beautiful setting for yoga, wellness, and adventure experience - up in the hills of Central Sri Lanka, near Kandy.



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 we've fashioned something we hope will make an ideal sanctuary, both for those wanting extended retreat space and those just seeking a shorter escape in the hills.

Our goal has been to offer spaces where people can enjoy time together, experience a very honest and open side of Sri Lanka, and from which they can take something not so often found in the tourist guides.

 While our focus has been to create something ideal for retreat leaders of all sorts, we're equally keen to welcome guests traveling independently; those that will appreciate really great, healthy Sri Lankan, occasionally even adventurous, days...and a uniquely restorative spot.
