Ulagalla Resort was a last minute decision on a long weekend in June. Driving to Ulagalla from the A3, we took less travelled detours along country roads to avoid travelling crowds. It was great from the word go. The peaceful drive, arriving at Uga in time for a sumptuous lunch, the grand welcome, the spacious and luxurious chalets (among the best we've stayed in Sri Lanka) and the fabulous food...The two days at Uga were of utmost relaxation. We only ventured out of the hotel to walk along the bund of a nearby village reservoir and watch birds as they came to roost in the evening. The resort provided ample space for walks, rides (on bikes for free or horses at a fee) or simply strolling. Our kids loved it.. the space, the horse rides, the food and especially the mini pool outside each room. The spa was divine. Definitely worth the visit. Definitely worth a second.

Room Tip: All the chalets looked great

I stayed here for just one night with my sister during our trip to Sri Lanka and we instantly wished we had booked a longer stay when we arrived. The hotel and grounds are absolutely stunning and unfortunately due to our short stay we just didn't get to see as much as we had hoped.

We loved the fact that were greeted so warmly by staff when we arrived, having them welcome us 'home' and ring a bell so that everyone would know we had arrived. I wasn't feeling in the best of spirits at the time as I had food poisioning but this welcome definately made me smile and we felt really welcome.

We had booked half board so breakfast and dinner were included in our rate. Unfortunately I wasn't well enough to sample dinner in the restaurant but my sister did and she said the food was fantastic. She's still raving about the chocolate dessert she had so it must have been pretty good! The restaurant and kitchen staff were good enough to send some vegetable broth and a smoothie across to our room so that I could have something light to eat and this was really appreciated. Breakfast in the morning was excellent with a wide selection of pastries and the cooked selections were also delicious.

If there is one hotel which has stood out in my mind and made me want to return to Sri Lanka it has to be the Ulagalla! Despite not getting the opportunity to see more of the property, it has made me want to go back so that I can. They have lots of animals on property including horses, monkeys and rabbits and a huge swimming pool and spa and bikes so that you can get easily around the property. We also had our own private jacuzzi/plunge pool right outside our room as well and the room/chalet was huge with a nice large living area and bedroom and a lovely bathroom so we have lots of reasons to back again.

Our first night in Sri Lanka at Ullagalla could not be faulted. Warm and friendly welcome, fantastic chalets with the most comfortable beds. Delicious food and very friendly service. One night is not long enough.

Our first visit to Ulagalla Resort made our stay an Unforgettable with lot of memories. Wonderful accommodation, Food, and the environment. Most credit goes to the staff as they were very friendly and most importantly they are well trained & knowledgeable!!! It is sad to say that we stayed only one night, but for the people who read this comment, we recommend that you should at least stay 2-3 nights...We hope that you as the reader would take these few words into consideration and include "Ulagalla Resort" to your travel itinerary! Cheers!

Room Tip: All the Chalets at Ulagalla are recommended.

Visiting Ulagalla resort during our last vacation in Sri Lanka was certainly the best choice we made. Our stay was initially for one night and with out hesitation, we extended it for two nights as soon as we reached there. The serenity and peacefulness of the resort alongwith the warmth of the staff strikes you on first impression. Uga was much more than what we had expected it to be. We had the most peaceful and relaxed holiday in one of the most luxurious chalets we had visited in SL. The care taken in designing the interior of the chalet was evident with every part of the chalet suprising us with its modern look and accompanying luxuries such as a plunge pool and deck area. The chalets are also placed to provide maximum privacy and seclusion to have a completely relaxed time. There's so much to see within the resort area too with every member of the staff treating you with utmost care and respect. Uga's efforts towards conserving the environment are also commendable with it having one of the largest solar farms in Sri Lanka, organic farm and eco friendly transportation within the resort. We left Uga with cherished memories of a wonderful stay yearning to come back next time we are back in SL.
