Ulagalla Resort is a beautifully restored mansion estate set amidst woodland and paddy fields, perfectly located to explore nearby Anuradhapura and other ancient cities nearby. The mansion itself now serves as the main dining area and has views out over the large swimming pool and paddy fields, with the individual chalets dotted around the pleasant grounds. Each chalet is luxurious and spacious, with all boasting their own private plunge pool. For those who are more adventurous, the resort offers a variety of activities including horse riding, birdwatching, and kayaking on the Ulagalla Reservoir.

Ulagalla works closely with the community to care for the environment, inviting you to get involved during your stay. The property offers local tours that directly benefit the village close by, and the toiletries you can find in your room are sourced from a rural Sri Lankan company, run by an all female team, making vegetarian products. In 2022, the Elephant Research Centre was opened at Ulagalla, and continues to be led by a team of resident naturalists who work in local communities to encourage people to learn about elephants, including education to co-exist peacefully and preserve the shared habitat.
