This is truly an amazing place to stay. A tranquil, elegant setting combined with spectacular accommodation and professional service says it all. The bungalows in the forrest setting (we stayed in number 10) were beautifully appointed - although we needed some lessons on all of the 'gadgets' within this premier Eco lodge. It was pleasing to see the environmentally friendly... More

The trip to Anuradhapura was perfect also because of this hotel! A hidden gem, one of the best small luxury hotels in the world. The hotel itself is a must see in your holyday to Sri Lanka. The only regret is that we stayed only one night, our guide told us also that usualy the turist stay at this hotel... More

The best welcome possibly at a hotel with traditional oil lamp lighting and herbal drinks ! Located in a calm, quite, forested area close to Anuradhapura - the ancient city really nice for dry zone birding in Sri Lanka. Chalets provide you privacy at best even at the plunge pool to give you a great time ! Go on a... More

Calm,Peaceful environment. Friendly staff and superb service. We had our own plunge pool and it was great. In the morning, while cycling, we saw all these animals lazing around and it was incredible. The food is tasteful and elegant. We highly recommend this hotel for demanding travelers looking for a exclusive hotel while visiting Anuradhapura area.

Thank you to the staff at Ulagalla for a fantastic stay . A great place to stay. The bungalows were superb, spacious, light and airy with our own plunge pool. The bird life including wild peacocks was incredible, let alone the hoards of monkeys .We were there in the dry season and the environs were wonderful but I can imagine... More

Ulagalla offered us the much needed hideaway time from busy CMB lifestyle. It was a very calm drive to Ulagalla and necessary direction boards are given from the main road. Reception was very quick, exactly what we wanted. Very engaging WOW introduction – ringing bells to announce that we have stepped in to premises. We were asked to light the... More

From monkeys outside our windows, to the staff celebrating a Birthday in our family, we felt like this place was magical. The bungalows are private and luxurious. The staff was so kind and loving towards our daughter too and we were so grateful. Everyone, from the drivers to the front desk staff and kitchen staff went above and beyond every... More

This was probably one if the loveliest places I have ever stayed. The rooms are located in a 58 acre land, which is situated around the main building "The Wallawa" The architecture in the main building is phenomenal and the hospitality of the service staff was also very good. Also there are few out-door activities. The best part is you... More

Stayed at Ulagalla Resort for a couple of nights and it was really difficult to leave at the end of it since we had totally fallen in love with the place.. After a long journey from Colombo, the hotel was everything we needed and so much more. The check in was fast and smooth and the staff were extremely courteous... More
