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.
