Resort Activities

You may want to kick back, do nothing and just enjoy the peace, quiet and hospitality. If so, we’re happy to oblige. But maybe you’d like to add a bit of activity, discovery and colour to your vacation. Here in the middle of the ‘Cultural Triangle’, there’s a wealth of places to visit and explore. Many of the Anuradhapura things to do are within a few minutes’ walk or bicycle ride from the hotel.

 

Nature Walk

Best Time : 6 am Cost Per Person : $20

There’s more to Ulagalla than just the view out of your window. Wake up with the dawn chorus and take a guided walk round the estate and beyond. This leisurely 90-minute ramble includes a walk along the banks of Wannemaduwa ‘tank’, a traditional irrigation reservoir built to a design over two thousand years old.

Jungle Kayaking

Take to the waters of Wannemaduwa tank in a kayak at dawn or dusk to experience the wild life of the forest at its most active. Paddle quietly with your friendly staff guide through floating islands of lotus blossom, stands of water bird-haunted reeds and overhanging boughs. The soft light of the rising or setting sun turns the air to honey and touches the dragonflies’ wings with gold.
