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.
