Truly a unique boutique hotel

Luxurious ecologically sustainable beauty

Surrounded by 58 Acres of natural woodland, this 150 year old mansion is the piece de resistance of this idyllic escape. Award winning Ulagalla is nestled amongst two sparkling reservoirs, paddy fields, lily ponds and was once the ancestral estate of Anuradhapura nobility.


Once a chieftain’s mansion, Ulagalla features a 150-year-old mansion at its centre, with 20 private, ecologically-built pool villas spread across 58 acres of lush greenery. With its own solar farm generating half of its own energy requirements, Ulagalla is truly a unique boutique hotel in Anuradhapura.

Enjoy the ambiance of ancient kingdoms or nature-based adventures whilst immersed in luxurious, ecologically-sustainable beauty. The lush environment, stunning landscaping, and exquisite attention to comfort makes for an unforgettable experience amidst a green oasis. Ulagalla is also just a 30 mins drive away from Anuradhapura and an hour away from Sigiriya, the ancient rock kingdom also known as the Eighth Wonder of the World. It’s complex engineering and architectural feats and world-famous frescoes are just some of its defining features, and if you’d like to explore, you can head that way whilst sight-seeing in Anuradhapura as its even closer in proximity from the city.


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 ‘Pool Villas’ – 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 and Cultural Triangle.
