A group of us stayed at Ulagalla on the way back from a trip to Jaffna. It was a truly fantastic experience. Excellent food and wine, attentive staff and beautiful surroundings. It's a perfect getaway with total relaxation. We stayed for 2 nights but could have easily spent another few days there.

Upon arriving at main gate, we were greeted by a smiling female security officer who politely inquired about our booking before letting us in. We had to help her find the booking but the experience was not troublesome and did not really cause us any delay. When we drove in to the property, we were greeted with a beautiful view... More

Ulagalla is quite amazing. You arrive to be met by a little party of staff, who go through a little welcoming ceremony and for the rest of your stay make you feel as if you are the most important people on the planet. Accommodation is in individual, top quality secluded chalets, all of which are very well appointed internally and... More

We stayed at Ulagalla resort for 2 nights as part of our anniversary holiday. From the moment we arrived and took part in the amazing welcome ritual of lighting the oil lamp and ringing the bells to announce our arrival, we knew this was going to be an unforgettable stay. The resort is spread over a large area with chalets... More

One of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in and the pillows were divine. We are mad keen on swimming so loved the pool - stunning. The kayaking on the lake (tank) is to be recommended as is the village bicycle trip. You could go horse riding and the horses looked pretty docile and in good condition. The... More

The rooms at Ulagalla are incredible. Beautiful bedroom, large well equipped bath with tub and separate shower, and huge separate living room - all on stilts overlooking lagoons and rice paddies. A truly magical location. Everything in our room work well - the A/C was super cold, lots of hot water and good internet access. The staff was very friendly... More

my last review of the hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka. the others have been very easy - fantastic or not so good. I've been struggling to come up with the right review for Ullagalla. it could be so good....... The location is fantastic: not far from anywhere in the cultural triangle. The setting of the villas beautiful, we... More

A beautiful, calm & peaceful place away from the hustle/ bustle of the city. The welcome arrangement was a brilliant idea - truly Srilankan. Rooms were very spacious, actually I thought too big & everything you need was there. Food was really good with varieties & staff were friendly & took us around in the buggy.

Great setting and close to the main sites in Anuradhapura which is the main point! Main building is lovely and the pool is in a stunning setting with the paddy fields beyond surrounding it. Sadly the lodges (rooms) are a little tired and desperately need maintenance, which is a shame as they are pretty and well equipped. Ours had one... More
