Details of the rooms offered at Rukgala, as well as special offers and packages.



The rates shown below are for 2018 and include a 10% service charge payable to local staff, as well as all other taxes and charges. The rates shown are for Bed & Breakfast. Details on additional meal prices are shown below.

(Please note that we do run a program of Events at Rukgala and if you’re happy and able to join on these then the pricing may be different to that below. Rates will often be lower as the events are designed for bigger groups.)


Top House Double and Twin Bedrooms

Three large double/twin bedrooms line the Main House - sitting on top of the rock that puts the 'Gala' in Rukgala. King-size double beds (or two large twins in one case), with very comfortable mattresses, offer views out over the pool, trees and lake beyond. 

Bathrooms open onto the private terrace with similarly great views.

Peak times (Jan-Apr, Jul-Sep, Dec) - $179

Quieter times (May, Jun, Oct, Nov) - $145

Garden Cottage Double and Twin Bedrooms

Just down from the Main House, the Garden Cottage has four bedrooms - two set up as doubles (with Queen-size beds) and two as twins (with large single beds). Each room has a cute mezzanine level with extra single bed - ideal for children, or just a cool meditation spot. Bathrooms a little larger, each with stand-alone claw-foot tubs.

Peak Times (Jan-Apr, Jul-Sep, Dec) - $149

Quieter Times (May, Jun, Oct, Nov) - $119

Family Room

At the end of the Main House we've set up a great big room ideal for families or small groups happy to share. The room has four large single beds - two four-posters and two standard beds, the latter best for pushing together if it suits families.

The room has a lovely little private garden/sun-spot.

Peak Times (Jan-Apr, Jul-Sep, Dec) - $225

Quieter Times (May, Jun, Oct, Nov) - $179
