Residence by Uga Escapes

Boutique city haven

This stunning eleven suite hotel was once host to British Govenors, European nobility and Indian Maharajas'. Built in the 19th century this charming property is located in the heart of Colombo and yet feels a world away from the bustle of the city around it.

The traditional Victorian architecture offers serenity and peace for all of its guests. Situated in Colombo it is ideal for a few nights before or after a tour of Sri Lanka and offers a welcomed rest after seeing the city's sights. 

Furnished in traditional décor but in no way dated, walk through time as you cross the threshold into the wide open lobby. Retreat to the comfort of your suite and private courtyard for some relaxation before heading out for an evening stroll through Viharamahadevi Park, and on to one of the many rooftop bars the city has to offer.
