Accommodation & Facilities
Chalets each have a living area, private terrace and private plunge pool, as well as a mini bar, rain shower and air conditioning. Beds are king sized with the softest linen and the fluffiest pillows, with ample space to indulge yourself and wooden floors. Choose between views of paddy fields, forests or lake expanses to admire. There is also the Nikaweva Suite which is perfect for families, with that bit more space. Chalets come with bicycles too to explore the surrounding area.
In the main ‘mansion’ area there is a large swimming pool, fitness area and spa. Staff are multi-lingual and there is free Wi-Fi.
Ulagalla prides itself on spectacular cuisine, catering to your every whim ‘your midnight cravings for mangoes; your penchant for pickles; your preference for a pot of Early Grey at precisely 6 am out by the lake or a simple picnic in the forest’. So indulge away…
Hike throughout the 58 acres of varied terrain or make use of the bike below your chalet. There are two horses, Sharm and Scotch that are willing to show you the sights as well. Enjoy nature walks with the resident naturalist, try kayaking, bird watching or swimming, or even improve on your archery skills!
Outside of the resort lands, there are excursions to embark on, from a cycle tour of the ancient kingdom of Anuradhapura, a tour of Kalawewa or a safari to Minneriya or Wilpattu National Parks. You can even embark on a Ritigala Mountain and Nature Tour, or tailor make your own tour to suit your interests.
