Ulagalla Resort Located in the North of the Cultural Triangle, 40 klms north of Dambulla and just 20 klms from Anuradhapura it is a convenient location from which to access the cultural triangle sites.
Built around an ancient mansion, which today provides the public areas for the hotel, this is a truly luxurious resort. The 25 large luxurious chalets (75 sq meters) are set in 58 acres of paddy land and lakes and each includes a separate living area and luxury bathroom. To the outside there is a private courtyard and plunge pool.
The resort has been built with great thought for their environmental impact and generates 50% of its own electricity from one of the largest solar farms in Sri Lanka.
The resort facilities include a swimming pool, fitness centre, business centre, laundry facilities, doctor-on-call, indoor games, billiards, as well as wheel chair access. There is also an Ayurvedic Spa.
Transport between your chalet and the main hotel restaurant, bar and pool is provided by golf buggy, alternatively bicycles are available.
Apart from the Anuradhapura Heritage site, which is nearby, guests can also access the other cultural sites, such as Sigiriya and Pollonnaruwa, within a couple of hours drive. Within the resort itself, there are bicycles for exploring the vast property, as well as Horse Riding, and Bird watching.
In our opinion this is a great new hotel and the accommodation is of a very high standard. The chalets provide good privacy and the Nikawena Villa, with 2 bedrooms is perfect for families and has the benefit of an oversized private plunge pool.
