UGA Residence HERO

Uga Residence

Discover Uga Residence

Uga Residence is one of the most lavish boutique hotels in Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo. It is nestled between the hip and happening Park Street and the tranquil lakeside Buddhist temple of Gangaramaya. A Victorian townhouse that once welcomed maharajas, governors, nobility, and the cream of Ceylon’s colonial society. Today it is an 11-suite hotel offering a secluded spot from which to explore the bustling heart of Sri Lanka.

The extremely spacious suites are adorned with Belgian rugs and ornate décor and each features a small courtyard for private dining. The fit-for-royalty Residence Suite also features an additional bedroom and bathroom, an enormous living room, and a 900-square-foot courtyard. The property itself features a 15-meter swimming pool, fitness center, garden courtyards, and Rare Bar and Kitchen, rated as one of the best dining spots in the city, serving delicious twists on traditional Sri Lankan cuisine.
