Uga Residence, Colombo
Located between Park Street and the lakeside Buddhist shrine of Gangarama, Uga Residence is the finest boutique-style hotel in Colombo. Originally built in the 19th century as the townhouse of a wealthy barrister, the Residence today is an eleven-room luxury hotel combining the historic features of the Victorian age with contemporary style.
All the rooms are suites. There are 10 Park Suites (below) which consist of a living room, bedroom, ensuite bathroom and outdoor private courtyard for dining and relaxing; they are equipped with a 42” flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, mini-bar and tea/coffee station. The spacious bathrooms feature rain showers and oversized vanity consoles. For the ultimate in luxury (subject to availability) you could upgrade to the palatial Residence Suite.
The Residence's dining room - 'Rare', overlooking the swimming pool - is regarded as one of the capital's best restuarants. There is also an excellent bar offering snacks.
