WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

History: The 150-year-old mansion at the center of the resort was once the ancestral seat of Anuradhapura nobility.

Location: Tucked away in nature, Ulagalla sits just 30 minutes from Anuradhapura on the road to Dambulla.

Service: Whether it’s to book a massage, cooking class or electric golf buggy, staff are on hand at all times to help; the Nikawewa family villa is even available with private butler service.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Nestled in Sri Lankan countryside in the quiet village of Thirappan at the heart of the cultural triangle, Ulagalla offers both access to and an escape from all the exploration and discoveries of this fascinating and historic land. Arranged around a beautifully-restored mansion, 20 private villas languish in lush green grounds with views of gardens and paddy fields. Guests can retreat to their own personal paradise with its private plunge pool and enjoy all the conveniences of modern life at the same time. Bicycles or golf carts are available to navigate the 58-acre sprawl and to convey guests to the large pool, tranquil spa or the grand mansion for an indulgent dinner at Liyawela restaurant.
