Uga Residence by Uga Escape

Tucked between the green canopy of Park Street and the tranquil Gangarama temple, a prominent Buddhist sanctuary in Colombo, you’ll find the Residence, a distinctive boutique hotel situated in the vibrant heart of Sri Lanka’s capital. This 19th-century marvel, crafted by Sheik Salehboy Moosajee, stands as one of the few architectural treasures from its time still existing in the city. Initially intended to be a familial dwelling, this abode was tailored to accommodate grand soirees, complete with majestic halls, sprawling gardens, and even stables for guests’ carriage horses.

Fast forward to today, the Residence has been transformed into a luxurious urban oasis consisting of eleven chic suites, under the meticulous management of Uga Escapes. Its interiors are a stunning blend of modern elegance and comfort, paying homage to the rich heritage of the edifice and the locality it graces. Whether you wish to hold a meeting, unwind, or commemorate a special occasion, the Residence has it all covered. Its lush garden, inviting swimming pool, state-of-the-art gym, intimate bar, and the iconic ‘great room’ offer an array of spaces tailored for your every need.


Nestled in the pulsating heart of Colombo, yet a tranquil oasis in its own right, the Residence is a mere 30km journey from the airport, presenting itself as a gateway to the city’s vibrant life. Its strategic location offers effortless access to the metropolis’ bustling business, entertainment, and retail epicenters, serving as an exquisite hub for those desiring a shopping spree or a thrilling immersion into Sri Lanka’s exhilarating urban life.

However, what truly sets the Residence apart is its ability to fuse urban proximity with serene seclusion. Despite its prominent city-centre location, the property emits a calm and peaceful ambience. It serves as a soothing sanctuary for those worn out by the city’s clamor or travel rigors. Whether you are just commencing or winding up your Sri Lankan journey, the Residence assures a delightful and restful retreat.
