Ruwala is a combination of a holiday retreat and activity centre. Activities include kayaking, fishing, whale and dolphin watching, snorkelling and scuba diving. The Sri Lankan owner is an ardent nature lover and is always at hand to share his knowledge about this fascinating corner of Sri Lanka with guests. Ruwala has a contemporary feel with white-washed walls and burnt orange touches and open spaces to take in the magnificent lagoon views. Ruwala is divided into two sections with the chalets, cottages, and main dining area on one end and the activities on the other end. Ruwala offers clean and comfortable accommodation, tasty Sri Lankan rice and curries, and extensive gardens scattered with palms which attract a host of birds.
