Ulagalla by Uga Escapes, Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka
Enjoy the riches of the kingdom or a natural adventure while immersed in luxurious, ecologically-sustainable beauty, both inside and out.
Once the ancestral estate of local Anuradhapura nobility, Ulagalla is nestled in 58 acres of natural woodland and amongst two sparkling reservoirs, paddy fields and lily ponds – its pièce de résistance – a 150-year-old mansion – at its heart.
During your stay in one of the 20 private, eco-friendly glass-walled chalets, you’ll find king-sized beds, the softest linen, the fluffiest pillows, comfiest sofas, cool wooden floors; and space to breathe, stretch, and allow yourself to indulge in all the luxury within.
There’s a fantastic collection of pursuits to try too, from nature walks with resident naturalists; kayaking or cookery classes.
Venture further afield and explore Ritigala's ancient monastery and Sigiriya Rock Fortress; the world's fifth largest elephant gathering at Minneriya National Park; or head to Wilpattu National Park to spot leopard or the illusive sloth bear, before a private dinner in your villa or around the estate.
