Ulagalla Resort


A former chieftain mansion over 150 years old, meticulously restored to its original condition, the resort comprises 20 extremely spacious and private villas, each with its own secluded sun deck and private plunge pool are set in a vast 58 acre estate with panoramic views of paddy fields and tranquil reservoirs, Ulagalla is truly a unique boutique hotel. With a reputation for exceptional cuisine, a pampering spa and an exciting range of outdoor activities, this is a winning setting brilliantly placed to visit Sri Lanka's main cultural sites. During your stay here you should visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the 5th century Sigiriya rock fortress, Polonnaruwa, which is the island's medieval capital (built in the 11th and 12th century AD) and rose to fame after the decline of Anuradhapura, and finally visit the unique features of the Wilpattu National Park - "Willus" (natural lakes). Elephants, sloth bear, leopards, water buffalo, sambur, spotted deer and mongoose are some of Wilpattu's residents.
