Amazing place

Melbourne, Australia

My family and I spent three nights at uga bay and its such a relaxing and friendly place. The breakfast and dinner buffet were excellent and the staff were so friendly especially with our children. I definitely recommend staying here. I will be back.

Perfect!

Our first trip to Sri Lanka was wonderful. From the staff, to the accommodation, to the restaurents, to the beach and facilities, to the reception, to the transport... perfect! Thank you to Uga Bay and to the staff who looked after us and managed to make us feel so welcome. We have already recommended Uga Bay, although we should really keep it a secret. From the Harts

The large infinity pool is certainly one of the prime focal points of the resort— it stretches from the main building seemingly into the ocean's horizon. Its furnished decking is a great place to sunbathe and relax.

Activities

A variety of activities are available as part of your holiday; including movies, guided cycle tours of the local village, darts, chess, volleyball and football.

Water Sports

Its prime beach location means that water sports at Uga Bay are quite exceptional. You can enjoy jet skiing and windsurfing, hire out a kayak, or try some snorkelling, and there is also great diving to be had; with experienced divers able to explore the nearby HMS Hermes wreck.

Spa

This haven of relaxation has sights onto the ocean and offers a range of world-class therapies including aloe vera wraps to soothe the effects of the sun, hydrating facials, and classic massages. The spa at Uga Bay is unique as its located beneath the infinity pool and offers fantastic views of the Indian Ocean from each treatment room. Restrictions: Payable locally.
