About Us

Rivendale Resort is Sri Lanka's only purpose-built Assisted Living and Retirement Home, and is located on a 3-acre property in the peaceful rural village of Thuduwa, overlooking the Bolgoda Lake. The retirement home has been in operation for over 10 years, and caters for elders of every physical condition. The home has earned a reputation for its excellent food and loving care offered to residents.

All rooms in the Resort are large and fully furnished, with attached toilets offering hot and cold running water. All rooms are located at ground level, with no steps even to footpaths, making all facilities easily accessible to all residents, including those who are wheelchair-bound.

Basic nursing care for residents is provided around the clock, and our resident staff includes a qualified Nursing Sister. Our staff are mindful of residents’ general health and dietary habits, and keep track of the medication intake to ensure that medication is taken properly at the correct time.

Rivendale Resort is run by husband and wife directors who live on the premises, ensuring excellent care and wellbeing and offering a second home to its elderly residents at all times.


Rivendale Resort is located at No. 12, Ferry Road (also known as Thuduwa Road), Thuduwa, Madapatha, just a 15 km drive from Colombo city limits. The Resort is 5 km off Piliyandala, connected with carpeted roads, and is also accessible from Galle Road via Katubedda. (Please refer Getting There for maps).

The Retirement Home is located on a three-acre property bordering the Bolgoda Lake; visitors to Rivendale enter the estate over tarred internal roads with tall mahogany trees on either side, and are pleasantly surprised by the sprawling lawn, landscaped gardens with well grown trees.

Paved footpaths lead to dining area and elders accommodation.
