                  Lovely boutique property. Suites are large and very comfortable. Great restaurant. ”

                  Really enjoyed staying here and a good location. Only disappointment was the lack of staff and service at times. Sat by the pool and after half an hour had to ask a rooms attendant if we could get a drink. Finally someone arrived took an order but never can back to see if we wanted a second drink. Also had to go looking for staff the next morning for breakfast. Really felt it was lacking a good on site manager pulling everything together. The restaurant food and service for dinner was superb.

                  Uga has been so far the best hotel chain I've been to in Sri Lanka. Well trained staff, great collection of Wine, Brilliant Sri Lankan Fusion food and squeaky clean property. If you are here don't forget to try their "Seeni Sambol & Sprats Ice Cream"

                  Lovely hotel to start our trip for honeymoon”

                  Just stayed 1 night at beginning of our honeymoon. What a great location on a very cool street in Colombo. We were poised to catch as many of the sites as we could. On arrival the place has a real wow factor. The reception was cool and smelled amazing. The staff checked us in quickly and couldn't have been more helpful. The room was really big and again had a real wow factor. We like to stay in Nice hotels and this one didn't disappoint. The furnishings and decor were grand like the room. Everything was spotless and furnishings in good condition. I think constructive criticism is good so if anything I would say the awesome bathroom could do with a towel rail to allow us to hang the great big towels you provided. Pool was beautifully kept and clean. Decided to eat in the restaurant and were very pleased we did. Really upmarket feel and staff very well trained. The courses were all delicious and although likely to be one of the more costly of our meals in Sri Lanka it was worth it

                  Chose Uga Residence as our last place to stay before catching a night flight back home. Our choice to stay at this hotel was right. Hotel staff welcomed us with a great smile and let us check in early around 12pm well before the normal check-in time so that we can relax and do some last minute souvenir shopping at the nearby supermarket. The residence is situated in an area away from all the traffic and noise. There is a huge supermarket nearby (Arpico) for all the last minute souvenir shopping you might need. Across the street, you will find Spa Ceylon retail shop and salon. Luckily we were able to book a 90-minute course for couple and fully enjoyed every minute of the spa. It was one of the top spas we have ever been to! The restaurant Rare within the residence is not to be missed. The service, atmosphere, interior and even the BGM provided a wonderful dining experience. Residence by Uga Escapes will be the choice for our stay in our next visit to Colombo!

                  Always hard to find a unique, exclusive and authentic Sri Lankan property in Colombo... but this is the property! Its beautiful, well kept, modern and everything you expect. Great location and access to MEWS street. Only problem and let down is the second bed which is sold as a second twin online however is just a single roll away bed. Bathroom is huge but no bathtub either.

                  A peaceful haven and perfect escape from the Columbo traffic”

                  Perfect in every way. One of the most spacious rooms I have ever enjoyed and the food the most exciting. I would recommend this hotel without hestiation.

                  The residence are very spacious, nice furniture. The locations is just around the corner from the Bohdi tree Temple, the most auspicious Buddhist temple in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The staff was very helpful in showing how to get around the capital, catching the trains to go to other parts of Sri Lanka e..g. Kandy. I loved the breakfast although it wasn’t Buffett they allowed you to order whatever you wanted from the menu and the food preparation was excellent.
