Nestled between leafy Park Street and the lakeside temple of Gangarama, one of Colombo's principal Buddhist shrines, Residence is a unique boutique hotel in the heart of Sri Lanka's capital city. Built in the nineteenth century by Sheikh Salehboy Moosajee, it is one of the few remaining buildings of its kind in Colombo. Originally a family home, the house was designed to host receptions and entertainment on a grand scale, with great halls, expansive gardens and stables for visitors' carriage-horses. Today, Residence is a luxurious eleven-suite city hotel owned and managed by Uga Escapes. Its design is glamorous, contemporary and comfortable, but recalls the rich history of the building and the surrounding area. With a large garden, swimming pool, gym, bar and 'great room', Residence offers plenty of spaces to meet, relax or celebrate.

Good position for seeing Colombo. Close to nice small restaurants if you want to eat out. Very comfortable rooms. Helpful staff. A great start to our 2 week holiday. Lovely pool and great breakfasts. Would definitely recommend.
Despite the fact that we only had a short stay, just one night as we were leaving Sri Lanka the next day, we can say that the Uga Residence definitely met up with our expectations: a wonderful room, a delicious dinner and an inviting swimming...More

Hi, we had beer and wine in the bar and costs were around the same as UK or a bit less. Eating in the bar was also excellent value-little extras brought to us and beautifully prepared tapas style dishes. We only used this hotel for a stopover on the way up to the cultural triangle so apologies but I can't help re sites-Colombo is not renowned for them! Hope you enjoy your stay. Judy
