I stayed here with my mother and friend in August 2015 for just two short nights. This hotel has been one of the highlights of our stay. All rooms are beautifully decorated individual bungalows, and each guest is provided with a bicycle with which they can explore the property or the surrounding village. There are all kinds of things to... More

This exclusive selection of lodges, set in acres of paddy fields is just about as perfect as it gets in Sri Lanka, or in any country. We stayed in number 18 which is the two cabin bedrooms and a separate central lounge. The attached pool, which is larger than the one bedroom options was wonderful. Every attention to detail is...

Every aspect of our stay was just wonderful. The staff was better than excellent, the villas were beautiful. The facilities were above expectations. The staff in the restaurant were all wonderful - attentive and really great service. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Ulagalla is in the middle of nowhere and that is its real charm, with just 20 rooms (850m2 lodges to be precise) in 58 acres of land among the trees, lakes and rice paddy fields. Bicycles are provided to get around the resort which is ideal, but golf buggies will pick you up to and from dinner. The rooms were... More

It was my first visit but it will certainly not be my last! The staff and the total experience is in perfect harmony. It is by far my most enjoyable hotel experience in the country and the seven people accompanying me would also attest to that. The large pool, the generously sized rooms, privacy, mature gardens, friendly and attentive staff... More

We stayed for 5 nights as a base to explore cultural triangle. Beautiful jungle side (or paddy field facing) chalets with on-call golf buggies or bikes to bring you up to the beautiful main hotel. Minor quibble - and all that stopped full marks for my review - restaurant is a bit safe international and Sri Lankan menu was limited... More

An excellent development using an old plantation house as the central part of the resort. The individual chalets were very generous in size ,the only quibble is that the widows in the bedroom didn't open and you're faced with an out of control air conditioning system or noisy fan to cool the bedroom . The animal life on the property... More

We stay there for one night and we had a very familiar welcome, the chalets are fully equipped with requited items. Our chalet had a big private swimming pool ( I guess all the chalets having private pools ), foods with ala carte menu. And those food are very delicious, every chalet having two mouton bicycles and we can cycling... More

This is a beautiful resort, set in large grounds, in unspoilt countryside.. The chalets are very private, with a small garden and plunge pool, and even have a separate sitting and dining room. The original building is very old, and has been beautifully restored. It now houses the bar and restaurant. The dining room is beautiful, and the meals excellent,... More
