Residence by Uga Escapes is centrally located in Colombo, and is just a five minute walk from Gangaramaya Buddhist Temple and close to Beira Lake. This is a unique boutique hotel, housed within a 19th century British colonial era villa, with the classic features of private courtyards and spacious, lush gardens surrounding the property. You can experience what life would have been like when nobility, British governors and Indian maharajahs (kings) graced the corridors’ many grand halls and ballrooms of this townhouse, which was formerly owned by a wealthy barrister. Rest your head in one of the eleven luxury suites, all of which come with ornate furnishings, wooden flooring, complimentary WIFI, flat-screen TVs and their own private sit outs. When you are not out discovering Colombo, you can relax by the outdoor swimming pool, in the cosy leather upholstered bar, or tuck into delicious cuisine in the gourmet restaurant.
