Treated Like Royalty

This resort has a good reputation for a reason. Our stay here was truly magical. The resort grounds, staff, facilities, and food are hands-down the best we experienced in Sri Lanka. The spa is a must where Lina and her colleagues will pamper you like royalty. It was so very difficult to leave. We are already making plans to return. OsborneAdventures

Lovely hotel set in beautiful gardens. Attentive staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It’s spoiled us at the start of a 3 week trip to Sri Lanka. Our next hotel was a real let down after Ulagalla!!

Idyllic setting near to sites

Unbelievably charming hotel with lovely staff and owners who are very keen to look after their guests well. Delicious breakfasts and food. Used as base to visit Anuradhapura and Polonnawura and to do elephant safari. You won’t be disappointed - idyllic setting.
