Uga Residence - Colombo's new boutique hotel

Uga Residence is fast becoming a hallmark in outdoor dining and relaxation in keeping with the upmarket facilities offered by the country to cater to the growing tourism industry.

General Manager, Uga Residence, Roshan Dylan.

Uga Residence, an eleven-suite luxury hotel in the heart of Colombo, is owned and managed by Uga Escapes. Despite its central location, its atmosphere of secluded peace and quiet is balm for the weary, the city-drained and travel-stained. Its appointments are elegant, contemporary and comfortable, yet pay tribute to its rich history and that of the neighbourhood.

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, and the ideal place to meet, relax or celebrate.

"Of our eleven suits, we have one grand suit with an exclusive internal garden. This is a luxury boutique hotel and the fourth in our hotel chain. The central location of Uga Residence has attracted visitors mainly from the USA, UK and Australia," its General Manager Roshan Dylan said.

With the re-branding of the properties in 2010, Uga Residence was transformed into a Colombo boutique hotel. As Uga is a well-known brand internationally we identified the importance of brand positioning, he said.

The main attraction at the Uga Residence is the restaurant which offers quality food with excellent service in an elegant atmosphere.

"The food we serve are mostly of international origin. However, we offer international cuisine with an emphasis on Sri Lankan ingredients which do not get the value and recognition they deserve. We try to introduce some of it, especially for foreigners to experience. Through this we can give a Sri Lankan touch to the food we serve. We have already received a tremendous response from foreigners," Dylan said.

"Our boutique hotels in Sri Lanka include Ulagalla in Anuradhapura, Jungle Beach in Trincomalee, Uga Bay in Passekudah and the Residence, he said.
