We went here for my honeymoon and it was one of the greatest hotels I have ever been to. Located near Anuradhapura (around half and hour away), the entire premises is built beyond our expectations. Built around an old mansion, the hotel dinning area and lounge gives a warm relax feeling. The massive pool in front of the main building...

The Uga Ulagalla is a gorgeous hotel with large comfortable rooms, your own small pool as well as a large lovely pool for all by the main area. The food was excellent. We found the welcome a bit over the top and fussy for our taste. The rooms did not seem to have a kettle only a coffee machine which...

I completely agree with previous reviews that say this is a stunning property, which feels totally secluded and in nature. The staff are extremely kind, genuinely hospitable, professional, efficient and very well trained. The main building, which houses the reception, bar and restaurant, and the mail pool are as gorgeous in real life as they look in photographs. The rooms...

For us, the people at Ulagalla were the ones that made our experience an enjoyable one. Here you don't just feel like another guest. It really feels like home. All the staff members were so lovely and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. They took their time to talk to us and explain things...

We travelled to Ulagalla on the 10th of December during a long weekend as a party of five. In spite of the lack of proper signage directing us to hotel we did find it with relative ease using Google maps. The road leading to Ulagalla is best traversed by a 4WD. The property is quite lovely situated in a 58...

Stayed 2 weeks in this lovely resort and were well looked after from the attentive staff . Food was excellent and there was plenty of choice on the set menu to cater for one's needs. Loved the extensive wildlife at Ulagalla and the facilities are excellent. The one negative people need to be aware of is the price of drinks!...
