Great boutique hotel with fantastic facilities and a very warm service and great food too! one word of caution - happy figuring out what's free in the mini fridge! Milk in the fridge is free, so are the water bottles, do not touch the nuts packets and sprigles in the living room! It's not free and it's expensive! I asked... More

We arrived very early off a long flight and were touched by the warmth of the welcome. They were quick to arrange our room and to organise a delicious breakfast. The chalet was spacious, comfortable and full of luxurious touches like loose leaf tea. We loved the fact you could order meals at any time and dine in our room-... More

We really enjoyed a few days at this peaceful retreat. Every villa comes with bicycles to get around the vast grounds. Excellent Sri Lankan cuisine. In fact, it was the best we tasted on our trip. Great service and very comfortable villas. Well worth a detour and next time we'll stay for a week and use it as our base.

Positives - 20 minutes from Anuradhapura & 1 hour from Sigiriya - spacious bungalow rooms with private plunge pools - lovely central pool area - fabulous spa treatments - smart colonial reception - abundant wildlife (we had 20 monkeys playing outside our room) - most comfortable bed ever! Negatives - slightly tired rooms and restaurant area (pigeons nesting in restaurant)... More

This is a lovely resort which makes every effort to meet its guests' needs. The bungalows are private, beautiful and well appointed. Transportation to the main house is via bicycle or cart during the day and by cart at night. The main pool is a dream to swim in with butterflies and birds in abundance. An early morning bird watching... More

After a 4 hour drive to the hotel we were met by the hotel welcoming party - which consisted of a refreshing drink, cool wipes and then we were asked to take part in the welcoming ceremony the lighting of the lamp and ringing the bell to announce our arrival. This was brilliant and whilst this experience is offered to... More

A group of us stayed at Ulagalla on the way back from a trip to Jaffna. It was a truly fantastic experience. Excellent food and wine, attentive staff and beautiful surroundings. It's a perfect getaway with total relaxation. We stayed for 2 nights but could have easily spent another few days there.

Upon arriving at main gate, we were greeted by a smiling female security officer who politely inquired about our booking before letting us in. We had to help her find the booking but the experience was not troublesome and did not really cause us any delay. When we drove in to the property, we were greeted with a beautiful view... More

Ulagalla is quite amazing. You arrive to be met by a little party of staff, who go through a little welcoming ceremony and for the rest of your stay make you feel as if you are the most important people on the planet. Accommodation is in individual, top quality secluded chalets, all of which are very well appointed internally and... More
