The luxurious Ulagalla Resort is a beautifully restored mansion estate, set in 58 acres of woodland and verdant paddy fields. A 150-year-old colonial building, referred to as the wallawwa (a Sinhalese word for mansion) sits at the heart of the resort.
On the ground floor is the reception and lobby area, whilst on the top floor you’ll find the Liya Wela restaurant which offers wonderful views of the gardens and infinity pool. This exceptional restaurant serves traditional Sri Lankan cuisine, plus Eastern and Western options, and with no set meal times, you simply eat whenever you want!
Individual chalets are set among the resort’s beautiful gardens with each one offering scenic views - either of the lush green paddy fields or the sparkling reservoirs which adjoin the resort.
Within the tranquil grounds surrounding your chalet you can expect to see monkeys, peacocks and elephants, plus a variety of bird and butterfly species.
Ulagalla Resort is located 20km south of the ancient city of Anuradhapura and is close to the Cultural Triangle sites so you can easily explore the Buddhist temples, sculptures and monuments.
As well as sightseeing there are a number of activities you can enjoy during your stay at Ulagalla - you can cycle to the local villages, enjoy nature walks around the reservoirs, ride one of Ulagalla’s horses through the paddy fields, kayak on the reservoir, or learn how to make a traditional Sri Lanka curry during a cooking demonstration with the resort’s chefs!
