Category: Best Luxury Boutique Hotel in Sri Lanka
In the ancient kingdom of Anuradhapura, at the heart of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle, on a sprawling 58-acre nature sanctuary, the luxurious eco-retreat of Uga Ulagalla nestles between two sparkling reservoirs, surrounded by lush green paddy lands with vibrant lily ponds.
Uga Ulagalla is an exceptionally beautiful and unique establishment with a culturally rich and historically significant 150-year-old mansion as its centrepiece. It is surrounded by various UNESCO World Heritage Sites and natural parks, adding to its immense natural wonder.
At Uga Ulagalla, there are a total of 25 villas with private plunge pools and an outdoor deck boasting spectacular views of the lush paddy fields or the neighbouring jungle that is teeming with life. The three room categories — Ulagalla Pool Villas (850 sq ft), Nikaweva (1,800 sq ft) and Deluxe Pool Villa (2,100 sq ft) — are decorated in soft neutral tones that enhance the sense of peace and calm.
Along with the authentic Sri Lankan dishes and Western fare served day into night at the panoramic second story dining room, meals can be taken privately at secluded spots around the hotel’s vast grounds. Uga Ulagalla’s culinary team prepares genuine regional and creative international cuisine infused with local spices and fresh produce from the resort’s own organic garden.
Uga Ulagalla is a haven of sophistication, offering excellent professional hospitality services so that guests can truly unwind and connect with nature. There is also a team of resident naturalists who are available to take guests on guided excursions. In addition, the hotel has an on-site spa, allowing guests to book in for services ranging from a simple massage to signature treatments to rejuvenate from your crown to your toes – just as one would expect from a boutique luxury hotel.
