For a slice of cosmopolitan city living Uga Residence offers a sophisticated slice of luxury in a leafy region of Colombo, nestled close to one of the city’s principal Buddhist shrines. Built in the 19th century as the home of a wealthy barrister, it has been meticulously restored to offer 11 spacious, magnificently appointed residential suites. It is set in spacious, leafy gardens with private courtyards, a gourmet restaurant, swimming pool and gym. The Park suites are outfitted in opulent style with warm, light and ornate furnishings and the Residence is a palatial apartment with a spacious private garden and whirlpool tub.

With its spacious, leafy gardens and private courtyards, its gourmet restaurant, swimming pool, gym, bar and ‘great room’ for private functions, the Residence is a more refined choice for long or short stays in Colombo, as well as the ideal place to meet, relax or celebrate. Be sure to try the high tea with a vast selection of Ceylon teas to accompany delicious cakes and savouries.
