Ulagalla Resort, Tirappane

Surrounded by lush green paddy fields, an enchanted forest and an expanse of a lake, Ulagalla will become your very own sanctuary in rural Sri Lanka. A place where you can unwind in perfect tranquillity and indulge in luxury under the stars. With paddy fields to explore and plenty of activities on offer, saddle up and make your way through the forest on horseback or for a more aquatic adventure, don your paddle and kayak your way through the calm waters.


Nestled in the heart of the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka, Ulagalla is surrounded by tropical scenery. This means it is the perfect place for you to relax and it is in an ideal location for you to explore not only the rural surroundings, but also the ancient capital of Anuradhapura or even the plains of Minneriya on a unique safari.

Your room

High up on wooden stilts, your room sits in amongst the lush vegetation and is complete with your own private pool and sundeck. Feast your eyes on the stunning views before retiring to your natural yet modern retreat for some well-deserved pampering.

Why we like it

After a day of horse riding, there is nothing better than arriving back to Ulagalla and unwinding in their sublime spa. Resembling an underground cavern, this spa is the epitome of calm serenity as you admire the gentle waterfall which cascades over the roof like a misty curtain. Surrounded by smiling and accommodating staff, you are guaranteed to have your every need catered for.
