The Ulpotha Hotel in Sri Lanka is rooted in history as a place of lore and spiritual importance. The location of Ulpotha is said to be associated with ancient deities for whom temples were built and dedicated to long ago. When guests visit this secluded oasis, they find a place of peace, rest and rejuvenation. Here, they are able to get in touch with a deeper sense of discovery and adventure while observing the natural beauty of their surroundings and the calm environment of the local village.

It is easy to absorb all the natural and simplistic beauty that the hotel offers their guest through a variety of activities such as yoga, swimming, and massages amongst other things. The hotel works extensively to maintain the organic practice of producing fruits and vegetables. It only uses local ingredients sourced from farms and from their own land. This gives their guests the opportunity to taste healthy food with rich, sweet and savory flavors.



With simple interior design and straw covered roofs, each hut allows its guests to feel and hear all the different elements that nature provides. When the wind blows through the hut, and the water flows down the river,  guests can disconnect from their thoughts and just be in the moment.
