| AccommodationImagine 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. And, 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. Outdoors is another story. There, surrounded by nothing but nature is your own private pool and sun deck. So you can swim or lounge all day with only the birds and the bees to keep you company.

If you cannot bear a moment of inaction, there is plenty to keep you busy. Go on a long, long hike – there are 58 acres of varied terrain for you to explore. If you prefer to do so on two wheels take the bikes below your chalet. On the other hand, you can journey on horseback – our two horses, Sharm and Scotch are ever willing to stretch their legs. For those less experienced, our Pony will oblige at a gentle trot. If water beckons you to its shores, take a kayak and venture in. The moorhens may cackle in protest, but will carry on their lives regardless. Archery was a royal pursuit, so why not try your hand at it too. If you are not an expert marksman, no one will complain. And if you dare not dream of a day away from the pleasures of Golf, take up clubs and practice your swing at the driving range. For those who take their leisure in more sedate form, the expansive main pool is all yours to relax in. There is chess for those who wish to keep their minds alert; and billiards too if you prefer it. Read up on history and nature from the books at our library or simply soak up the sun on a deck chair all day if you wish to.

Located at the very heart of the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka, there is much to explore both near and far from your base at Ulagalla Resort. We offer many excursions and guided tours covering a variety of interests – so whether you are keen on culture, wildlife, people or just places, we have a journey for you to take. You can visit the ancient capital of Anuradhapura on an exciting cycling tour; take a safari to the plains of Minneriya National Park to watch the elephants or further West to Wilpattu National Park – the realm of leopards. Visit the wonder of Kala wewa – a giant reservoir, a proud feat of engineering of an ancient kingdom. The age old ruins of Ritigala are also a visit more than worthwhile. The wonders of Sigiriya, Dambulla, Polonnaruwa and other sites of archaeological and historical significance are also near enough to explore. However, if you wish to take command of your own discoveries in a tailor made tour to suit your own interests, simply talk to us; and it will be yours too.
