Description

The property is a beautiful private hideaway open to guests for part of the year; a place of total peace, where you can experience the warm, generous and gentle hospitality Sri Lankans love to offer. In this sense, Ulpotha is not a hotel and does not aspire to be one.

Guests who come to Ulpotha will find a natural sanctuary of exceptional beauty, where the main activity is simply relaxing in its remarkable atmosphere of peace and calm while indulging in feasts of exquisite organic cuisine.
However for those more purposeful in nature, Yoga and Ayurveda therapies are available, as are excursions to surrounding sites of archeological interest. The yoga classes are led by some of the world's leading Yoga teachers, while the Ayurveda is administered by an acclaimed resident doctor.

This oasis of tranquility is a traditional working village, cradled on one side by low mountains and a lotus ringed lake, and on the other by emerald green paddy fields. The bio-diversity of Ulpotha is extraordinary, with flora, fauna and bird life of dazzling variety. Animal life is equally varied, with even wild (but gentle) elephants visiting from time to time.

"Ulpotha remains for me the most beautiful spot in this whole complex world that I am lucky enough to travel around." - Travel Editor, Harpers & Queen.
