. A superb hotel with wonderful large rooms in chalets although ours was quite a long way from the centre of the hotel. There was a very good buggy service to transport you in. The welcome ceremony was a bit over the top but in all other respects the staff were very attentive and helpful. The bar, swimming pool and... More

We visited Ulugalla to just get away and relax for a few days from the hustle and bustle of Colombo and spend some quality time with our family. This was the perfect place to do that. The surroundings were lush and green after the rains and the paddy feilds and gardens were immaculate. The rooms were all very tastefully done... More

We stayed 3 nights here and found it to be very relaxing. The villas are scattered around the property and bicycles are provided in each villa to get around if you do not want to walk or ring for the electric buggy. The villas are beautiful - well designed and in excellent taste. Bed was very comfortable and had excellent... More

We are arrived very late to this hotel and the sign showing the entrance isn't lit, so we missed it the first time. However once we found it, the track to the hotel was eventful, the recent rains had caused the road and area to be very badly flooded, so it was rather touch and go if we would make... More

This resort is probably my favorite of our stay – and we stayed at several great places. The staff was wonderful, the resort beautiful – all aspects of it, from the beautiful lush greenery, ponds with lilies and herons both inside and beyond the property to the perfectly designed villas and main building. The pool was lovely, hammocks welcoming, food... More

We stayed for two nights (just before the flooding), with two children. The hotel was very helpful about setting up two extra beds in the living room of the cabin for our children, and generally dealt well with any request. The setting was wonderful, and the birds around the hotel grounds were fascinating (even for a non bird watcher!). Whilst... More

Where do I start. I wish I could give more than 5 stars, it would be 10 out of 10. I have stayed in a numerus hotels in my live, and this hotel beats them all hands down. With accommodation and service. Everyone had a smile on there face, and nothing was too much for them. And as for the... More

It's our first visit to Sri Lanka and we are really enjoying it very much. We are so glad that we've stayed at Ulagalla resort even though it was only for 2 nights. The food and service from Saranga (restaurant supervisor) and his staff were superb. The best service that you can imagine. Nothing is a problem for them. They... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Ulagalla Resort over the New Year. There had been flooding shortly before in Anuradhapura and the advice we got was not to go. However, I called the resort the night before and a very helpful member of staff gave directions by SMS. The following day, he checked to ensure that we were safely... More
