Ulagalla Resort is an ancient mansion and of great value to Sri Lankan history. It has been the abode of many chieftains whose area of rule extended from Ulagalla in Rajarata to Padaviya in the northern province. The position of chieftain has passed from father to son through generations and these families have all influenced the mansion. The mansion has been restored to its original state, developed and furnished to retain its own distinctive character - it revives the gracious aristocratic lifestyle of the colonial era in the ancient capital. Ulagalla Resort is the first hotel to be commissioned in the post war era.
Ulagalla Resort is ideally located in the hamlet of Tirappane, 40 km north of Dambulla on the Dambulla - Anuradhapura road. Anuradhapura is just 20 km from the resort and it is extremely convenient to access the cultural triangle sites and other historic sites from Ulagalla Resort.
