Uga Residences - A fanciful home away from home!
The staff at Uga were amazing, and the room size and comfort is simply outstanding. To top it all off, each meal there is a culinary delight, from a simple croissant, to the amazing steaks for dinner. truly one of the best properties i have stayed at.

8/10 Very good

A very comfortable oasis in the middle of Colombo. The beautiful pool only has 4 sunbeds round it, but while we were there this was never a problem. As is customary in Sri Lanka the service is glacially slow in the bar and restaurant. The restaurants in Park Street Mews next door are worth investigating.

Very happy with experience at this hotel. Room was very spacious and clean. Staff was very smiley, accommodating, and helpful. Breakfast at the restaurant was 10/10 delicious. Location was great too, only a short walk to a lot of temples and sightseeing places. Only slight con was that our bathroom door didn’t lock properly. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Colombo!

8/10 Very good

The room was huge with a very comfy bed. The hotel is absolutely beautiful with a lovely pool. Very clean. The gym is very very basic. The staff were attentive but a little slow. The restaurant food was actually vile - weird fusion food like chicken with apple (?!). Overall a good stay. Loved that there’s tea making facilities in the room.
