A truly amazing experience with an overly dedicated staff. Accommodation to Meals to Guest Services were simply unmatched. Spent most of the time enjoying our own private pool or cycling in and around the property. A must for anyone who's looking for the true meaning of hospitality. However, though we've planned for a signature dining offering for the second night,... More

We have been lucky enough to stay in some of the most incredible hotels in the world, but Ulagalla really was very special. We were greeted by the team late in the evening and couldn’t have felt more welcome. The property is unbelievably beautiful, in an amazing location, but it really is the staff here who make it a holiday... More

Nice decking area with plunge pool and loungers etc. lots of wildlife so,lovely to sit there and watch the world go by particularly late afternoon. The resort was large and felt very... More

A friend and I stayed at Uga Escapes in Ulagalla for 3 nights while we toured the ancient cities. This resort exceeded my expections. From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel very welcome. The service was personal and courteous. Our villa was beautiful. Large bedroom, living room with a DVD player and very large bathroom. There was... More

Stayed at Ulagalla for three days. Was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The chalets were very cozy and very tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable and plenty of room for the kids as well. The staff were excellent and always eager to help. The kids enjoyed the horse riding and the kayaking. All our meals were... More

The villas are so close but isolated. Its another home with facilities you are not getting at home. The light controlling system is a bit confusing. Better to have the normal switch type you can operate manually. Walk around the wewa (reservoir) is very relaxing and can feel the nature very close to you. The lawns and gardens are well... More

We were here for our honeymoon in July 2014. Absolutely loved this place. The best you can get in the dry zone of Sri Lanka. Undoubtedly No.1 in Sri Lanka as a honeymoon destination. They have horse riding, bicycles are given for transportation within the premises. Food is lovely.

We spent 4 nights at Ulagalla Wallawa Resort during April 2015. Everything about this luxury resort is spectacular and what we loved most was its people. The friendliest hotel staff I’ve ever met!

This is where you come for a bit of luxury + a bit of wild life. Amazing villas, where common guests are monkeys, peacocks, horses, cows & snakes. Its absolutely one of a kind. The location is for those of you who appreciate the peace and quiet and who need a break from your busy hectic lives. The food is... More
