We stayed in the resort only one night and it was not enough. It is a beautiful resort with many things to admire and experience- the house, the quiet pool, the green surroundings, wildlife, the wonderful staff and excellent food. We were made to feel very special. The chalets were very private with own deck and plunge pool and all... More

Ulagalla resort is like nothing I had ever experienced. Spread out over a considerable area, the villas are dotted about in seclusion but just a call away are the lovely golf cart drivers who will take you to breakfast, dinner or just the pool. Alternatively, you can get about using the helpfully provided bikes. What a great way to start... More

We only stayed for three nights and wished we had stayed longer! This resort is incredible..... The service is exceptional and the Villas beautiful! I could rave on and on about this place but we stayed there right at the end of our Sri Lankan tour and we obviously saved the BEST until last! We WILL be back...!!

During our 3 weeks roundtrip in Sri Lanka we stayed at many hotels, but this one was, without any doubt, the best! From the arrival until your departure, the staff is delivering an unforgettable experience. All rooms (villa's with private plunge pool) have a lot of privacy and comfort and mountainbikes are included. You need these, because the resort is... More

One of the greatest resort and nature experiences I have ever had. Every aspect of their service, food, property and amenities was cared for to the last detail. The kindness of their staff is overwhelming and the beauty of the place breathtaking. Prices are more than fair for what you get, so I highly recommend it. Visit their organic garden,... More

Enjoyed our two nights here immensely. Fabulous "wild" surroundings while the chalets are very well equipped and super comfortable. Had better wifi in the midst of the forest than we did in Colombo! Each chalet is situated in such a way that it feels like it is the sole one in the forest. the bicycles that are provided are perfect... More

Hard to imagine such a luxury eco-friendly resort in Anuradhapura, part of the famous cultural triangle in northern Sri Lanka. It's located in a very lush private farm, and the service there is excellent. The manager greeted us with a local spiritual rite, very special to us. Each chalet has separate living and bedrooms plus a beautiful private pool, (and... More

It was the very best resort we visited during our tour in Sri Lanka. Excellent cottage, very clean and equipped with the most desired items and a beautiful private swimming pool/Jacuzzi ...........that unfortunately you cannot use. Monkies jump from the trees showing who has the right to use the pool. Fun to watch them jumping around, drinking and bathing. Luckily... More
