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.

transformed into a Colombo boutique hotel. As Uga is a well-known brand

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
