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! We received a very personal and a warm welcome. That was wonderful. This place has extremely comfortable villas bring you close to nature. Our chalet was very... More

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

A lovely hotel set amid natural jungle and rice paddies.The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all the usual mod cons one would want. The natural environment means you are surrounded by wild life including troops of monkeys,peacocks numerous other birds butterflies and lizards. The main building which houses the reception,bar,restaurant and snooker table has been brought back to its... More

Very sadly we only spent one night in this magnificent property. The only drawback is the awful road that leads to it from the main highway road: full of potholes and not good for cars or bad backs! Once you arrive at the guarded main gates you enter another world that I would love to get used to. Everything in... More

From the welcome to the last day of our trip we were given an excellent service by a very courteous and they had a very thoughtful gesture. The suite we got was... More

We loved staying at this resort. The staff are fantastic and food is delicious. The resort itself is truly beautiful and you really feel at one with nature. The bicycles provided at each cabin are a great idea. The rooms/cabin are like no other room I've stayed in before- with personal jacuzzi for each cabin. The rooms are spacious and... More

Many people will fall in love with this hotel…the pool is magnificent; the surrounds are immaculately kept; and when we had a problem with our room, the management could not have done more to resolve it for us – including a surprise supper laid out on the lawn surrounded by lanterns…thank you guys, we were blown away by this thoughtful...

Great boutique hotel with fantastic facilities and a very warm service and great food too! one word of caution - happy figuring out what's free in the mini fridge! Milk in the fridge is free, so are the water bottles, do not touch the nuts packets and sprigles in the living room! It's not free and it's expensive! I asked... More
