Uga Ulagalla by Uga Escape

Encircled by 58 acres of untouched woodland, the centerpiece of this serene getaway is a stunning mansion that boasts a history spanning 150 years. The acclaimed Ulagalla by Uga Escapes, a haven nestled amid gleaming reservoirs, lush paddy fields, and picturesque lily ponds, once stood as the grand ancestral estate of nobility from Anuradhapura. This destination captures the essence of a bygone era, inviting you to experience luxury within nature’s cradle.


Nestled within the serene village of Tirappane, Ulagalla by Uga Escapes is a mere 40 km north from the famed city of Dambulla, easily accessible via the Dambulla – Anuradhapura A9 route. Just a stone’s throw away, about 20 km, is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Anuradhapura, with its breath-taking beauty and historical splendour, as well as the renowned cultural triangle sites.

Even though the Bandaranaike International airport is approximately 160 km away, and the vibrant city of Colombo a further 176 km, fear not. Ulagalla by Uga Escapes is not an unreachable paradise. You can choose to embark on a memorable helicopter ride, or if you prefer, enjoy a picturesque road trip across Sri Lanka’s captivating landscape to reach this exceptional destination. The journey promises to be as spectacular as the destination itself.

Accommodation - Villas

Ulagalla (850 sq ft)

Nestled within an expansive estate are 19 extravagant villas, each seamlessly blending with the natural landscape and estate’s philosophy. They’re ingeniously built with Durra, an innovative, eco-friendly material crafted from straw. Not only is Durra fire-resistant, but it also boasts superior sound insulation, is fully recyclable, and displays a strength tenfold greater than traditional drywall.

The estate’s carbon footprint is significantly diminished through the use of LED lighting and green gas air conditioning within each villa. These homes are the epitome of luxury with the meticulously designed features: a regal four-poster bed, centrally controlled lighting, a sleek and minimalist bathroom, and a separate living room furnished with a 42-inch LCD TV.

Each villa is further enhanced with a private plunge pool, complete with invigorating air jet bubbles, and a spacious outdoor deck perfect for dining and lounging in style. To top it off, every villa comes equipped with a selection of Ceylon’s finest Tea and Coffee, ensuring a truly exquisite stay.
