Incredible hospitality

Colombo, Sri Lanka

After a hectic 6 hours nonstop drive from colombo uga bay staff welcomed us in the warmest way possible. From the very first second all the staff was very attentive and friendly. Have to mention FNB manager chinthaka who never missed to talk to each and every visitor. Great stuff from him and his staff. Overall the room is nice and specious. Food was great throughout the stay.

WOW WOW WOW!!!

Barcelona, Spain

After a nearly 7 hours drive from Colombo we arrived at UGA bay. The welcome was warm and friendly! We have experienced a fantastic 10 day holiday. Great location, beautiful bay, very friendly team members who really want to ensure that you have a great stay. Management and team alike so welcoming, a real pleasure. The room spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast tasty with lovely local food however the choice could be enhanced certainly if you are here longer that a couple of nights. Dinner times were every day again a real threat, good choice, fresh and you just see that it is cooked with "love". The bar again did not disappoint, great cocktails!!! The pool area is also excellent, plenty of space and great views over the bay. I could continue to write for hours about this lovely resort. We look forward to come back next year and thank management and team for an excellent holiday!!!
