The place is a well maintained property surrounded by a lake and untouched nature. We just fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived. We were a group of 19 people and they have arranged everything in advance to make our stay a memorable one.

We are traveling for like 10 years and we've been to nearly 15+ Sri Lankan Villas/bungalows so far, but i never met so attended/committed coordinating person in all my years. "Ravindu the marketing person" of the location helped me from the very beginning to ensure that we will get everything to our satisfaction. He always explained and suggested us the most economical and convenient ways to arrange our rooms and food. THANK YOU Ravindu!!!!

Their food is just amazing and will definitely re-visit here just to taste that amazing food again. Every menu had enough variety with a nice dessert. Addition to their menus we wanted to do a BBQ and they allowed us to bring our own meat and to help with BBQ for just 5,500 which was excellent. Their pork and kochchi kadala bites will take you to another world with your drink.

All their rooms were perfectly arranged with towels & toiletries. Rooms were very clean and quite large where you can actually accomodate more than 4 people in a room. They were so kind enough to arrange us extra mattresses too. All and all the place, rooms, swimming pool, facilities, food and everything was sooo perfect.

As i explained in the beginning, place has 2-3 safe & private river bathing spots where you can easily connect your souls to nature without any outside interference. We enjoyed every bit of it.

Just like Ravindu helped us throughout our journey with all his experts, bungalow on-site caretaker Sugathadasa, Rasika, Asanka & Prasad took care of us like their own family. We had 3 babies in our gang and they always helped the respective mother's with so much care. I was so impressed with these 4 guys and i actually asked all their names personally and talked to them and thank them personally for the extraordinary service they have given. They never said NO, They never Stopped smiling, THANK YOU Kuruwita Retreat :D :D :D

Highly recommending this place!!!!!

A resort that's sure to be on my recommendations list! A very calm/quiet place with a great atmosphere and ambience located close to the Kuruvita River. With friendly staff and enthralling ferrying experience on request, the hotel provides warm hospitality at reasonable prices. Feels to be a home away from home!

I visited this hotel for 3 days before moving on to a beach resort. The hotel is in a lovely situation, overlooking a river. Very peaceful and surrounded by nature at its best - any twitchers would be in their element. I opted for the full board package, and I’m glad I did, as the food was delicious and plentiful - Sri Lankan cuisine at its best. The wonderful room I had was in an elevated position so I could enjoy the amazing view.

The hotel is ideally situated to explore the Ratnapura area, and I was lucky enough to take a trip to Sri Pada (Adam’s Peak) to see the sun rise. The chef acted as a guide - I really cannot thank him enough as it has created a memory I’ll never forget.

Nestled in a beautiful green spot away from the buzz of the city this was the perfect getaway from Colombo for our family of 4 (kids agued 4 and 2yo).

The owner was thoughtful even before we arrived and the caretakers went the extra mile to ensure we were well treated.

The architecture and interiors have a vernacular style with a modern twist ensuring all creature comforts are catered to in this international grade retreat. Although Wi-fi reception is best forgotten here we truly took that as a plus!

The meals were wholesome and tasty. The walk with umbrellas in a mild drizzle in the surrounds peaceful and the river raft ride unforgettable.

We would highly recommend this perfect escape if you want to spend quality time with loved ones and well and truly ‘switch off’ from the outside world making patchy reception the perfect excuse for ignoring your phone calls! This place is known to host work conferences with meals without room bookings and also you can book out the whole place for groups of 12 people! I can see us doing that.

We were desperately looking for a family getaway and found this absolute piece of gem situated in ratnapura district. A comfortable distance from the city of colombo. First of all I must say when I did the booking over the phone, Ravindu did explained and corporated with high professionalism. Then he made constant follow ups till our trip day to make sure that all what we require is in place on time which I has to be commended.
Kuruwita Retreat was a hidden heaven on earth and we felt it on the moment we stepped in there. Surrounded by greenery it was a perfect getaway for our whole family of 15 people. The River was the highlight of this place where we spent quality time on our own. The pool was ideal for kids.
Mr Sugathadasa was the master of this place who did made sure that we were treated well. He attended almost all our requests with no complains and his team served us with delicious food which gave us the homely taste. The menus were quite flexible with a reasonable variety.
We will definitely be constant visitors to this hide out in future. If any one is looking for peace of mind, delicious food, and hide away from the busy life,Kuruwita Retreat is the place to be.

We spent a night at Kuruwita Retreat and enjoyed three delicious meals. Ravindu and his team know what true hospitality is and always went an extra mile to make our stay comfortable . Food definitely is cooked by an expert with great care: one never gets such an experience of Sri lankan curry even at a Five Star.

We visited this Gem of a resort with my family in April.It's situated about 10 minutes away from the beginning of the Kuruwita -Erathna Trail to Adams peak and therefore can serve as a good rest point on the way to or from Adams Peak.
Rooms were very spacious and comfortable.All meals served were tasty.Mr Ravindu the owner,Wimukthi and the team did their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Pool was spacious and the kids enjoyed swimming in it.The resort offered a free Raft ride in the Kuru Ganga next door which was a Novel experience for us
Fully recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back

We made a trip to Kuruwita Reteat on the 16th for a day outing. We were so pleased with the greenery and the environment was so soothing, Soon as we landed we felt the difference in the air and atmosphere.
The rooms was so spacious and airy and had a good view of the river. We bathed in the river and was able to do a rafting trip with Sugathadasa. .
We enjoyed the dip in the pool which was very spacious and looked very natural.

The food was good and the staff was excellent and very accommodating.
.
Definitely visiting it again
