A cocoon of nature and indulgence
Once a chieftan's mansion, Ulagalla makes a great base for a Cultural Triangle trip, with fine dining and your own plunge pools to return to at the end of the day
Spread over 58 acres, Ulagalla is a unique boutique hotel near Anuradhapura. This luxury hideaway is nestled between two reservoirs and is surrounded by paddy fields making it a green oasis of privacy and comfort. With 20 individual ecologically-constructed pool villas designed to create a space of sanctuary for their guests, Ulagalla Resort is the perfect place to finally get into your latest holiday read, lounge by the pool or listen to the sounds of local wildlife from your balcony. For the ultimate in relaxation, pop down to the spa where internationally trained therapists and lush green surroundings will have your batteries recharged in no time. Dinner can be taken in the main restaurant, on your own private deck or even out in the paddy fields for a romantic touch. Dishes are prepared from herbs and vegetables sourced from their organic garden and rice from the neighbouring paddy fields.
Ulagalla makes a great base for your Cultural Triangle trip, and both the ancient capital of Anuradhapura and the 'Eighth Wonder of the World', Sigiriya Rock, are both under an hour away. The Dambulla caves are also close to the hotel. Other activities include cycling around paddy fields and visiting neighbouring villages, horse riding, bird watching, lake picnics and also cooking classes with the chef at the resort.
