A haven of luxury and relaxation, and a perfect choice for those wanting a homely atmosphere within the city Residence by Uga Escapes is a welcome option to Colombo’s larger city hotels.
Residence by Uga Escapes was the one time original abode of Sheik Salehbhoy Moosajee, who belonged to a prominent family who first arrived in Sri Lanka at the turn of the century.

The elegant interiors are decorated with period furniture, local art and colonial period photography. The swimming pool is set between the Main House and the Suites.
The Park Suites all come with queen-sized beds, luxuriant furnishings and striking décor, ensuite bathroom and private courtyard. Enjoy all modern amenities, including a Bluetooth enabled Geneva sound system and 24 hour room service.
