10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything - the location, food and hospitality
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Without a doubt, probably the best luxury stay in Anuradhapura and it will definitely exceed your expectation. Kudos to UGA management to keeping up the standards as always. From the checking in until the departure, staff was extremely helpful and so supportive. Always tend to greet the guests with a bright smile, which is so sri lankan and pleasant thing to see. We stayed in a one bedroom pool villa, and it was ideally located and well equipped. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Food was really nice. It was more like living in a village with luxury conditions. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and obviously looking forward for another stay
Cons: The villa we stayed didn't have any good view, it was kind of isolated in the corner of the land. So if you prefer to stay in a villa with a good view, better to inform the hotel or maybe reserver a deluxe villa which has a good panoramic view to the paddy fields.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food also very good!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: At was a very nice stay. The Sri Lankan dinner was delicious with amazing atmosphere. Don't miss horse ridding in the lake
Cons: Bicycle need to be renewed
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely gorgeous villas and facilities Wonderful wildlife and staff very respectful of them (eg did not chase monkeys that were just passing by) Staff super professional and very discreet Delicious breakfast and dinner Luxury experience for sure
Cons: While spending 500$/night for these gorgeous villas seemed like a tolerable splurge for us (and worth it I think), all the rest is gross overpay... Examples : 189 USD for airport transfer (we got one easily on our own for 60 USD), 65 USD for a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc Oyster Bay (worth 10$ in Canada and not even a « good » wine), laundry charge of 2,25 USD per piece of underwear (when you have to wash 3 weeks worth of travel clothing, can add up to a significant bill for just laundry), and the activities offered were also just ridiculously pricey (45 USD/person for archery...really?) so we ended up doing none... I know it’s a luxury hotel and we should expect some degree of priceyness...but in our opinion it’s very exaggerated and left us with a bitter feeling of being trapped in a wonderful place not being able to enjoy the activities offered or a bottle of wine without the impression of getting ripped
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff are determined that guests have a perfect stay and work hard as a team to ensure that they do. Beautiful accommodation and grounds. Modern facilities with eco credentials and everything worked ! Loved cycling around hotel grounds and into local village Organised the best day trip to Anuradhapura and Mihintale, including bikes, picnic lunch and personal guide and naturalist - an unforgettable experience.
Cons: Hard to criticise anything, only area to comment would be that the menu did not change at all for the 3 nights we stayed. Is expensive but if you can afford to treat yourself, Ulagalla will not disappoint.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. It is just perfect.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: 1. Location, check-in/out 2. Room size, cleaness 3. Ready to help anytime 4. Comfortable 5. Strong internet speed ( wifi)
4.2 Okay
Pros: Pretty much, nothing. We had the worst experience of staying at this hotel.
Cons: 1) The room was small and cramped. We felt the money charged towards the room rent was high and not worth it. The balcony was dirty and not cleaned. 2) The staff try to be helpful but can do it only if you speak Sinhalese. They do not understand even the basic English. I'm not saying that they must learn English. All I'm saying is that this place is definitely not friendly to a foreign traveller. 3) There was a lot of miscommunication between us and the staff. Since we checked in late, I asked the staff if it's okay to check out late. They said "okay" (a miscommunication?). But after sometime, when we were on a tour of Anuradhapura, we started getting mails regarding late checkout fee. When we immediately called, one of the person who attended the phone responded in a very threatening voice and was unruly and unprofessional. They did not even bother to call/message us after the checkout due time but sent a message after 3-4 hours. From their perspective, it was all our fault for not informing the hotel about our updated plans when in fact we had inquired them about it. This was a very sore experience as a honeymoon couple for us. 4) The breakfast was the traditional SriLankan food (our request). The food was charged around 8 USD for two people and definitely not worth the amount. A couple of coconut rotis and milk rice is definitely not worth 1200 LKR. 5) The behavior of the staff was very unsatisfactory. I can live with some shortcomings in the offerings provided by a hotel until the stay is comfortable and joyous. A sore experience can make every shortcoming into an issue.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good especially the first morning. The ambiance was excellent and the bird singing too.
Cons: I wish I did not have to tell them to clean the room. Apparently this is the rage in Sri Lanka which is OK and sounds eco-friendly but not when a night costs more than 120 USD. Sorry! It took the guy at the reception at least 15 min to find the reservation via my phone!?! If I did not have this device I might have been left on my own "devices" in the middle of Anuradhapura! Bizarre.

Pros: The food at the restaurant is ok. The laundry was very expensive, but the clothes smelt very fresh when we received them back.
Cons: The WiFi doesn't work, the staff need some better direction with better management. The pool is not clean so it is unusable. We were told incorrect information at the reception. We paid for our room directly with booking.com and they tried to charge us again for it. The rooms in the apartment are very dark and not very well cleaned. There are only 2 sun loungers by the pool, we were a group of 9 so that definitely didn't work. The water pressure in the shower was so low that my girlfriend couldn't wash her hair.
7.5 Good
Pros: Lovely clean pool, and good room

Pros: Absolutely gorgeous villas and facilities Wonderful wildlife and staff very respectful of them (eg did not chase monkeys that were just passing by) Staff super professional and very discreet Delicious breakfast and dinner Luxury experience for sure
Cons: While spending 500$/night for these gorgeous villas seemed like a tolerable splurge for us (and worth it I think), all the rest is gross overpay... Examples : 189 USD for airport transfer (we got one easily on our own for 60 USD), 65 USD for a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc Oyster Bay (worth 10$ in Canada and not even a « good » wine), laundry charge of 2,25 USD per piece of underwear (when you have to wash 3 weeks worth of travel clothing, can add up to a significant bill for just laundry), and the activities offered were also just ridiculously pricey (45 USD/person for archery...really?) so we ended up doing none... I know it’s a luxury hotel and we should expect some degree of priceyness...but in our opinion it’s very exaggerated and left us with a bitter feeling of being trapped in a wonderful place not being able to enjoy the activities offered or a bottle of wine without the impression of getting ripped
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff are determined that guests have a perfect stay and work hard as a team to ensure that they do. Beautiful accommodation and grounds. Modern facilities with eco credentials and everything worked ! Loved cycling around hotel grounds and into local village Organised the best day trip to Anuradhapura and Mihintale, including bikes, picnic lunch and personal guide and naturalist - an unforgettable experience.
Cons: Hard to criticise anything, only area to comment would be that the menu did not change at all for the 3 nights we stayed. Is expensive but if you can afford to treat yourself, Ulagalla will not disappoint.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were very spacious, clean and quiet. It is located in a rice paddy so the outlook is lovely. The resort is very small and intimate. The pool is great to cool off at the end of a day seeing the local sights. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to help.
Cons: There is no safe in the room to secure your valuables. The room key operates the lights and air con so you have to lock and unlock the door in the dark at night. Would be great if they had a wine list and more local food on offer. However staff went out of their way to meet our requests

Pros: The people are so nice! They arranged a pickup from the airport and a tuktuk to mihintale and anuradhapura for a good price. The tuktukdriver was also a great guide. The pool is also very welcome cuz its hot in the city, so perfect after or before a visit. The pool is in this amazing garden, so nice just to relax there - for us right after arriving. We stayed 2nights. The food is also very good (not many restaurants in the area but a lot of choices).
Cons: Only one small thing, the wifi doesn't work well, we didn't mind..and the shower is 'cold' but thats also not really a problem.
