When planning to tour Sri Lanka we had been advised by friends to include this hotel in our itinerary. It was a resounding success; the location,architecture,ambience and experience were all tremendous. The food was excellent, the staff charming and welcoming and the swimming pool a sanctuary after visiting local sights. The new manager will want to review and improve the... More

One of the best resorts I have stayed at, one I would compare to the likes of Fairmont Kea Lani in Mauii or the Four Seasons in Mauii. The Chalets were wonderful, both peaceful and comfortable. The Staff, was attentive to our needs, gracious and accommodating, the epitome of SriLankan hospitality.

W were on honeymoon and had a great time at the hotel. The villa was fantastic and immersed within the nature and wildlife. We enjoyed our stand off against the monkeys whilst having room service. They would have had to fight hard to get my spring rolls. Service and staff were great and was clear to see the warm Sri... More

This place is off the beaten track and is situated on acres of peaceful, lush land where the main building is the reception and dining area cum bar, which happens to be an ancient colonial house of a bygone era. It's a treat to sit upstairs savoring your meal which is presented to you in a pleasing and unusual manner,... More

We stayed for 3 nights in June in chalet 19. High quality accommodation in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed the morning bike ride around the paddy field to breakfast, the delicious food and warm hospitality. My husband was impressed with the large swimming pool, perfect for morning and evening lap swims. This property thoroughly deserves its accolades and I'm sure... More

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
