This season, the shining star at the top of our tree is RESIDENCE – the latest Uga Escapes hotel to open its doors to guests on the 1st of February 2015. All our other properties are resorts, luxury hideaways close to nature, a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The Residence is different: a luxurious small hotel in the very heart of the city of Colombo, within easy reach of all the shopping, entertainment and amenities you can think of. The building itself is a historic gem, a grand city residence reflecting the wealth, sophistication and grace of Ceylon in the great days of the plantation era, during which it was built. British governors, mercantile magnates and estate owners rubbed shoulders under its roof, guests at the great balls and receptions that were held here.
Today, Residence offers a quieter, more relaxed ambiance in keeping with the spirit of Uga Escapes. The luxury, however, remains undiminished. Its eleven spacious suites are fitted out in opulent style. Warm lighting, ornate furnishings and Belgian rugs exude a sense of serenity and ease. Public areas are welcoming yet elegant, with a restaurant that offers an Internationally Inspired Cuisine, with an emphasis on Sri Lankan ingredients and, weather and mood permitting, the option of dining al fresco…..
Despite its city-centre location on Park Street, Residence by Uga Escapes is quiet, sheltered from crowds and noise, with many private spaces allowing discreet meetings for business and pleasure. The sense of history is strong here, yet the Residence offers every modern convenience. For bookings and inquiries, including events, please call +94 115671000 or email email@example.com.
