Once a chieftain’s mansion, Ulagalla features a 150-year-old mansion at its center, 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.
