Ruby Lake Resort

Two types of accommodations – luxury safari tents surrounded by forest trails, and comfortable cottages overlooking a picturesque lagoon – lend themselves perfectly to a getaway spent walking through the woods, participating in lakeside yoga classes, paddleboarding or canoeing on Ruby Lake, wildlife viewing and even mountain biking on the resort’s pump track. Treat your finer tastes to classic northern Italian specialties at La Trattoria Italiana, where an eclectic wine list and tranquil lagoon views are the perfect accompaniment to a fabulous meal.
