The Ulagalla Resort was the first Uga Escapes property to open in 2010. A boutique hotel located in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Anuradhapura - One of the world’s oldest inhabited cities and Sri Lanka’s first ancient capital; was created by meticulously restoring a 150-year-old building that was once the home of a village chieftain.
Offering an unparalleled holiday experience that provides an authentic taste of the country’s cultural heritage, this resort successfully coupled luxury with eco-friendliness. By virtue of its pioneering design, the hotel was the first in Sri Lanka to receive Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design certification from the Green Building Council of the United States. Today the hotel is a member of the elite group of "Small Luxury Hotels of the World" and the flagship property of Uga Escapes.
