A very big Thank you to the Management and staff of UlagallaResort for making our holiday a memorable one. We had a wonderful time. Service is world class. Every staff member we came into contact was very courteous and friendly and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. You have set a benchmark for all the hotels in Sri Lanka.
We will most certainly recommend this place to all our friends here in Sri Lanka and overseas. Thank you once again and we will be back!!

In terms of location, this has to be one of the great hotels of the world but the service is hopeless and the food moderate. The hotel has been open about 6 months but as yet the management have not even started to get to grips with the problems. I'm not even sure that they realise that they have problems.

Just getting ready to depart after a short 2 day stay, but wish it was for so much longer. A great place from where to see the cultural triangle attractions, the resort is just fabulous with service levels truly unbelievable at times. We went horse riding and boating for a small charge. Bike rental is complimentary. The private splash pools are mind blowing. Anybody looking to give something to their special someone...this is it! It is every bit the price you pay for and more. One advice would be to rent a car from Colombo itself as the hotel car rental is expensive. The staff is fantastic and I would highly recommend the resort, especially for couples.

this was the most amazing hotel i've ever stayed at. i think hotel is a misnomer as they are all villas, smaller and larger villas. it was absolute heaven. beautiful, well-manicured, eco-friendly and just amazing. each villa gets a personal outdoor deck with table and chairs, sun chairs, a personal pool and the villa we stayed at (1bedroom) has 2 bikes so you can go around and see the property (if you get a bigger villa they offer more bikes). there are also some monkeys around the property which you can watch from a distance, they don't come near you, at least not us. they have a helipad in case you want to helicopter in from the airport. they also have a beautiful main pool by the restaurant which served the best food we had in the country served by the most considerate staff ever. they have a cute ceremony where you light their lamps upon arrival and then take a picture of you so when you leave the provide the picture with a small gift. inside the villas, they are pristine; they have thought of everything. they have a tv which connects to the internet so you can surf the web, especially youtube which is nice. bathrooms are amazing, bedrooms are amazing. the only thing was all the windows in the living room/common area are windows with blinds but at night when you close the blinds if you leave the lights on you can see everything inside. the bedroom and bathroom shades have an extra window covering so you cannot see in that room but its a false sense of security in the living room. a MUST MUST MUST

Accidentally happened to go there with my friends and it was wonderful.
I really enjoyed the hospitality of the staff.
I liked the eco friendly environment including their solar farm.
Loved the private pool and the chalet we stayed in overlooking the lovely paddyfield.
The restaurant was fabulous and the food was beautiful.
Enjoyed watching birds including peacocks. Also horse riding was unforgettable.

This place is the best botique hotel in Sri Lanka so far as to my knowledge & the best in the cultural triangle without a doubt. The possibility reach other tourist destinations are convenient from here. You can also get the best out of the hotel by it's different recreation facilities, gym, pool & spa.
