About
Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
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.

Lovely small boutique hotel with very spacious/well decorated rooms. From the bustling streets of Colombo, it certainly felt as though we were stepping back into Colonial times & half expected high-tea with cucumber sandwiches. Staff are incredibly professional/friendly & the restaurant is absolutely top-notch &...More
