Ulagalla Resort


Once the ancestral estate of local Anuradhapura nobility; this hotel in Anuradhapura features a 150-year-old mansion at its centre, with 20 private ecologically-built villas spread across 58 acres of lush greenery. As one of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, with its own solar farm generating half of its own energy requirements, Ulagalla is truly a unique boutique hotel.

Enjoy the riches of the kingdom or a nature based adventure while immersed in luxurious, ecologically-sustainable beauty. Visit Ulagalla Resort to sample the best of Sri Lankan hospitality and to experience unparalleled luxury.


Imagine a little ‘palace’ all to yourself. King sized beds, the softest linen, the fluffiest pillows, comfiest sofas, cool wooden floors; and space to breathe, space to stretch, to allow yourself to indulge in all the luxury within it.

We call them ‘chalets’ – and you have 20 to choose from, but each is a sanctuary to hide yourself away from the cares of the world and be treated like royalty. Each one is a special place to take refuge in, be surrounded by beauty and feel at one with creation itself. Which view would you like to admire: A lush green paddy field, an enchanted forest, or the still expanse of a lake? Whichever you choose, you have a wide terrace and picture windows to feast your eyes from here at Ulagalla, definitely one of the most unique of all the hotels, in Anuradhapura.

  • Ulagalla Villa - Each of the 19 villas at Ulagalla are over 850 square feet in size, all offer glass-walled panoramic views of the scenic, unspoiled, natural paradise filled with bird and animal life and are luxuriously equipped with air conditioning, high-end entertainment systems and many more amenities. Each Villa of this hotel, Anuradhapura has its own deck and secluded private plunge pool, making it a destination in itself.
  • Nikewawa Villa - The elegantly yet comfortably furnished 1200 sq. Ft. suite is ideal for a family. Appointed with 2 bed rooms, surrounding a living and dining area – Nikewewa Villa is a heaven amidst the rice paddies. The 180 degree glass walls allows for a breath taking view of the 20 acres of paddy field. A length pool sits between nature and the suite giving that extra bit of lavishness to an already perfect setting, making Ulagalla different from other hotels. Anuradhapura is yet another site that one must not miss when visiting Sri Lanka.


Enjoy a fine dining experience in the main restaurant or choose to dine on your own private deck or in the paddy fields.

We expect you to rule, to dictate to us – tell us your whims and fancies: the exotic curries you always wanted to try; your midnight cravings for mangoes; your penchant for pickles; your preference for a pot of Earl Grey at precisely 6 am out by the lake or a simple picnic in the forest – whatever they may be the lists are yours to create, and ours to oblige, and that’s how we differentiate ourselves from many other Anuradhapura Hotels.

Whether it is haute cuisine, spicy rice and curry or a simple salad – everything is prepared to your liking from the freshest of ingredients: from fruit and vegetables grown in our farm garden, to paddy threshed from our organic gardens and fields.
