It was my 5th stay in this hotel. All is really great. Very nice manager, friendly staff, very good accomodation, perfect food for all tastes. I will come back again. Not cheap but value for money is ok.
Staying at Uga Residence makes it hard to believe you are in the middle of a noisy, busy city, it's an oasis of calm. The hotel is historic, single level, rooms are huge with excellent facilities and all face on to the large pool. The...More
The expression “a haven of peace“ gets well used, and is often not justified, but It is totally fitting for the Uga Residence in Colombo. The city is maze of roads with too much traffic, diesel fumes and tropical heat; tuk-tuks buzzing in and out;...More
This was our second stay at Uga Residence and I must say I was thoroughly disgusted this time around. Sure, the hotel is beautiful, the rooms are well kept, but the service we experienced was nothing short of atrocious.

Nestled between leafy Park Street and the lakeside temple of Gangarama, one of Colombo's principal Buddhist shrines, Residence is a unique boutique hotel in the heart of Sri Lanka's capital city. Built in the ...Morenineteenth century by Sheikh Salehboy Moosajee, it is one of the few remaining buildings of its kind in Colombo. Originally a family home, the house was designed to host receptions and entertainment on a grand scale, with great halls, expansive gardens and stables for visitors' carriage-horses. Today, Residence is a luxurious eleven-suite city hotel owned and managed by Uga Escapes. Its design is glamorous, contemporary and comfortable, but recalls the rich history of the building and the surrounding area. With a large garden, swimming pool, gym, bar and 'great room', Residence offers plenty of spaces to meet, relax or celebrate. Less

Hi, we had beer and wine in the bar and costs were around the same as UK or a bit less. Eating in the bar was also excellent value-little extras brought to us and beautifully prepared tapas style dishes. We only used this hotel for a stopover on the way up to the cultural triangle so apologies but I can't help re sites-Colombo is not renowned for them! Hope you enjoy your stay. Judy
