Things To Do


Rediscover nature, and your spirit of life, at Ruah Rainforest Retreat.

The retreat is surrounded by 40 acres of rainforest. During the day you can take a quiet stroll in the pristine rainforest ro view some of the magnificent species of trees and plants. For the more adventurous, there is a climb to the summit behind the retreat.
