resort gave me one of my topthree travel experiences ever when I stayed there for two weeks the past Christmas and New Year.
If you want to connect with Sri Lanka, its people, kitchen and way of living this might be the right choice. If you are looking for an eco-oriented and small resort with a strong vision of providing a genuine experience Ruuk Village is definitely the place. Every little detail has a thought behind, be it the wonderful food, the placing of the cabanas or the interior design – simple but lovely. You can only fall in love with the place and its people.
Situated next to the lagoon of Kalpitiya the resort offers a great variety of activities, from kite-surfing, to barefoot walks along the amazing beach next to the Indian Ocean and excursions to Willpatu Natural Park and Anuradhapura, the historical capital of Sri Lanka, or a gentle yoga session under the palm trees.
