Our Story

Covid-19 in Sri Lanka

For overseas guests – a warm welcome back! 

Our big news as of July 7, 2021, is that we can welcome guests from overseas who are fully vaccinated.

We are therefore able to proceed with our retreat schedule.

You may acquaint yourself with the fresh guidelines issued for those wishing to travel to the country. These can be found here.

We advise you to read your country’s travel advisory as well.
We will be happy to assist you to meet all the relevant Ministry of Health guidelines and Ministry of Tourism procedures.

For guests living in Sri Lanka

Ulpotha will continue to relax our usual minimum stay requirement while offering attractively reduced local rates to fully vaccinated guests living on the island.

Please contact Pri at bookings@ulpotha.com for further details and booking enquiries.
