Residence by Uga Escapes Sri Lanka

Overview of Residence by Uga Escapes

Nestled between leafy Park Street and the lakeside Buddhist shrine of Gangarama, the Residence is a unique boutique hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s capital city. Built in the nineteenth century by a wealthy barrister, Sheikh Salehboy Moosajee, its halls and ballrooms of this grand Victorian townhouse once welcomed British governors, Indian maharajas, European nobility and the cream of colonial Ceylon society.Its great halls, expansive gardens and stables were designed to host receptions and entertainments on a grand scale.

Today, the Residence is a unique eleven-suite luxury hotel in Colombo, owned and managed by Uga Escapes. Despite its central location, its atmosphere of secluded peace and quiet is pure balm for the weary, the city-drained and travel-stained. Its appointments are elegant, contemporary and comfortable, yet pay tribute to its rich history and that of the neighbourhood.

With its spacious, leafy gardens and private courtyards, its gourmet restaurant, swimming pool, gym, bar and ‘great room’ for private functions, the Residence is a more refined choice for long or short stays in Colombo, as well as the ideal place to meet, relax or celebrate.
