Residence by Uga
Colombo

Uga Escapes launched their fourth property Residence by Uga, in Colombo in March 2015 – a boutique 11-suite hotel set in the 18th Century former home of Sheikh Salehboy Moosajee. The property is located in the thick of the capital, near to leafy Park Street and the lakeside temple of Gangarama, one of Colombo’s main Buddhist shrines, and walking distance to many of Colombo’s sightseeing highlights such as the National Museum.

Residence by Uga is decorated in a chic and contemporary style but with a nod to the historic period of the Ceylon era. With its great halls, expansive gardens and stables for visitors’ carriage horses, this home was designed for grand receptions and it is one of the last of its kind in Colombo. The property has a swimming pool, gym, ‘great room’ and a restaurant with al-fresco dining options by the terrace or near the pool. Cuisine is international continental whilst making the most of Sri Lankan ingredients.

Residence by Uga joins Ulagalla, Jungle Beach and Uga Bay in Uga Escapes’ Sri Lankan portfolio.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.
George Bernard Shaw

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
