    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. 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. Discover the elegant simplicity of Sri Lankan village life on this two-hour guided bicycle excursion. Keep an eye open for exotic birds and small wildlife along the route – expect surprises! Your destination is Veheragalla, a traditional farming village not far from the hotel. You’ll meet the inhabitants and be welcomed at the home of the village headman. If you prefer riding to walking, you can spend a happy hour or so exploring the estate and neighbourhood on horseback with a staff groom. We also offer longer excursions by prior arrangement. For the nature-loving foodie: a guided tour of our organic herb and vegetable garden, during which you can hand-pick fresh, juicy ingredients for your lunch. End your walk with a visit to our traditional hearth kitchen, where the herbs and vegetables you’ve selected will be transformed into delicious Sri Lankan dishes especially for you.

If so, we can supply the equipment – bows, arrows and targets – as well as expert advice and even some friendly competition from our recreational assistants, who are graduates of the Colombo School of Archery. Or engage in a tournament with your own party or fellow guests. An expert visiting instructor conducts programmes for guests on request.

Located in the ancient city of Anuradhapura, this Buddhist monument tells a story of its own, interwoven with the rich history and heritage of Sri Lanka.
