With Victoria Lake now literally lapping on our driveway with the rising water levels, along with it came the perfect opportunity to test out the new Rukgala boat. Gleefully being rowed around the lake in this wooden delight by head gardener Raja while eagles fly overhead, has been a real September highlight.

Dryer nights have allowed for some welcome chit-chat around the fire-pit, stargazing and firefly spotting over a few stiff coconut waters, and many communal curries have been sunk between friends old and new. 

Rukgala is starting to come alive, all thanks to the wonderful guests it’s been housing.

Perhaps one of the largest events September gifted was the Workout.Lk  and Rukgala retreat collaboration.

Wild swimming, hiking, yoga and meditation with a side of personal development was on the agenda, and after a really fun (but healthy) weekend, we are thrilled to be welcoming WORKOUT back in November for another. 

Keep an eye on our events page for details.

Places on our Escape & Explore hiking and meditation weekend retreats with Emma and Aravinda have been filling up, and we are over the moon at all the positive feedback. 

There’s still a chance to join one in October and November before they have a little break to allow for outside retreat leaders to take centre-stage in the space. Get in touch or have a look on our events page for more info.(
