Excellent service, friendly staff, clean, lovely luxurious spacious rooms, amazing food, what more could you possibly ask for? The fb (food and beverage manager) "Amila'' made our dining experience extra special with his special cocktail and mocktail recipes. He also tended to our youngest child's special non-spicy meals. So im grateful for what he has done to make our stay a memorable one. So I urge travelers to come here.

Been to places all over the world and Sri Lanka. This is probably the best resort I’ve stayed in when it comes to perfecting every aspect of what a resort should be Don’t think about the price, have this experience :) When asked to say something they can improve on, I’ve never been that speechless They took care of my baby and my family like gods And the activities??? Oh my GOD :) Rolex will always be a beautiful memory to me. He’s the horse at the resort. They just got a new one the day we left. More like stallions. The guy who takes care of the horsss should be given more recognition for his amazing service and the way he takes care of those horses. From food, to service, to luxury this is the place. The staff even helped us feed the baby! This place made me book Uga bay... let’s hope they meet this standard as well :)

I would list Ulagalla on the top of my favorite list for the exceptional customer service and the unique experience . We stayed in the second week of December and absolutely fell in love with it . The extensive bike rounds , greenery , walk around the lake , kayaking , bird watching , horse riding kept us totally occupied during our stay . Chefs went beyond to make things look right and taste right . Sending a big applause to them and the service team . Mali and her team made sure we had a lovely stay .Suites are spacious and purposely built . Plunge pool provide some great view and we enjoyed sipping some cocktails by it , overlooking the views of the paddy fields and the greenery Just little something to bring to the attention of the Management about the horse , we can see the horse is not in its best mood to continue carrying riders around the lake or elsewhere and he should perhaps be directed for treatments for the injured eye . The horse seemed very exhausted and we now feel very guilty of riding on a horse that was not well ( we only got to know one week after the horse was not feeling well and the eye condition was pretty bad ) . Hotel uses horse riding around the lake as a major attraction yet I believe it is your prime duty to give the much required medical attention to this beautiful horse . Also to provide safe waterproof packaging for the guests to protect their mobiles and belongings during kayaking and horse riding . Perhaps some easy zip lock bags or some waterproof pouches would do . Our bad the Spa was closed during our visit owing the covid issue . The senior male host in the white costume is such a lovely host and we truly enjoyed his company and story telling . Look forward to another memorable stay !
