A beautifully restored Sri Lankan Manor house, Ulagalla lies in a small village near the world heritage site of Anuradhapura. Ulagalla is the perfect spot to base yourself whilst exploring the sights of the Cultural Triangle.
Once the ancestral estate of local Anuradhapura nobility, this luxury hotel features a 150-year-old mansion at its centre, with 20 private ecologically-built chalets across 58 acres of land.
Why we like it
In reach of Sigirya Rock, Anuradhapura and Minneriya National Park, Ulagalla is the perfect spot to base yourself whilst exploring the sights of the Cultural Triangle. Although will all that Ulagalla has to offer, it might be hard to leave.
The original mansion now acts as the main dining room, whilst individual chalets, all with private pools, are dotted throughout the grounds. The rooms are separated from the dining area and bar, spread out over beautiful terrain with small lagoons and greenery. It is not unusual to see black ibises and other birds around the property.
Families at Ulagalla
For younger guests, there are bicycles and the more adventurous can walk to the larger lagoons. Ulagalla Resort openly welcomes families and offers dedicated children’s menus, cots, and highchairs. The highlight here is the close proximity to nature and the freedom to discover it within the extensive grounds.
