I do not expect it is the done thing to go wow at every turn when we were being shown to our beautifully equipt 2 room chalet, with its beautiful decking and plunge pool. It seems to be in the tree tops. Hence it was no surprise to have a nervous family of monkeys visiting our pool for a drink.... More

From the moment we arrived it was heaven. We were welcomed with spiced coconut juice and taken by buggy to our chalet with outdoor jacuzzi. The quality of the bathroom, bed linen, living room was impeccable. Free bikes were provided to cycle to the main pool (which was large). The outdoor shaded spa has a new Balinese masseuse- the best... More

We were there for a weekend. You drive down A9 highway. Neither the Google map nor the road signs indicate where it is. You stop to ask by and by you find the turn off. It is cleverly hidden way from the visitor! We missed the resort down a gravel path again. Once we finally found it, it was an... More

Being a boutique type hotel it lives up to its standard. With great service and a fantastic views ranging in its over 50 acres land. Not to forget the spacious chalets with a private pool. The dining is also a nice experience as they dont have fixed hours for it. You just go in at the time convenient for you.

From the moment we stepped out of our vehicle, through lamp lighting ceremony until the end of our two days stay the experience was superb and beyond our expectations.. Our Chalet was beautifully decorated with special honeymoon amenities and it was so clean and well maintained.. As our... More

Stayed 2 days in August 2014 during our family vacation in Sri Lanka. Wonderful location and environment. Staff very friendly and service oriented. Food is good and accommodation by the food and beverage department on our special requests were admirable (we had few special gusts for one of the dinners and they have done a wonderful job in accommodating our...

We've just returned from our honeymoon and spent the last few days at Ulagalla. What a fantastic resort. It was well worth the 4.5 hour car ride from Colombo to get a chance to stay at this hotel. The minute that they opened the gates to the resort, we were greeted by a group of monkeys! The resort is set... More
