Ulagalla Resort, Sri Lanka

The sun jinks into your chalet through the slatted blinds. You can hear the wind murmuring in the treetops that surround your Sri Lankan bungalow. You can also smell the fresh coffee that’s about to be served by your butler. It’s a hard life at Ulagalla Resort, but someone has to get up and live it!

And live it you will. You can start with a refreshing plunge in your private pool, before heading over to the stables for an early morning ride. Or, if you prefer bicycles to horses, you could pedal slowly through acres of rich gardens, taking in the sweeping views of paddy fields, tranquil reservoirs and the village Ulagalla. You’re in the perfect place to relax – or discover the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka.
