RESIDENCE BY UGA ESCAPES | SRI LANKA
(Our Preferred Hotel in Colombo, Sri Lanka)
By Michael Chinnici
Amongst Colombo’s luxury hotels, Residence by Uga Escapes is located right in the heart of Colombo with easy access to the capital’s business, entertainment and exciting urban culture. What really makes Residence by Uga Escapes special is that despite its central location, the hotel breathes peace and quiet for the weary, the city drained and travel-stained. And the perfect place to rest after a cultural and photographic experience throughout the backstreets of this beautiful city.
BOUTIQUE ACCOMMODATION IN COLOMBO
The Uga Escapes range of hotels is perfectly positioned in the heart of some of Sri Lanka’s most prominent locations, with Residence being an urban delight among the boutique hotels Colombo offers. Quietly tucked away in the midst of this bustling city needless to say it is a haven to retreat to. In true Uga Escapes style, the rooms have been meticulously planned with extensive detail and utmost comfort in every inch. A delicate balance between old Sri Lanka and modern luxury is the running theme that ensures you experience the best of both worlds. Residence has on offer beautifully decked out accommodation options:
Park Suites: Lavish furnishings, florid rugs and distinctive décor are complemented by the spacious, en-suite bathroom and private outdoor courtyard available for some quiet moments alone. With a living room, a 42” television, mini bar and a tea/coffee station (complete with an espresso machine), and more, our Park Suites are more than just a place to lay your head and utterly ravishing.
Residence Suite: If you feel like a little royal treatment on your holiday, then our regal Residence Suite is just what you need. With a setup that has imbibed the very roots of ancient Sri Lankan interior styling; the space is nothing short of stupendous. A 900sqft courtyard is the unmissable highlight, where you can take a private stroll much like the Kings and Queens of yore.
DINING IN COLOMBO
Regarded as one of the exclusive boutique hotels in Colombo, at Residence by Uga Escapes the approach of traditional haute cuisine is happily blended to a contemporary aesthetic based on unusual ingredients and imaginative preparation and presentation. Well-stored wines from our large, knowledgeably-stocked cellar complement the parade of chef’s specials, à la carte treats and irresistible desserts. This restaurant in Colombo along with a 100-seat space, overlooking the swimming pool, is designed to allow seating indoors or al fresco, according to the weather and your mood.
If you fancy a pre-dinner cocktail, the barman at the adjacent Residence Bar will mix you the perfect aperitif. The bar is also a great place for a between-meals or late-night snack.
Aside from the main restaurant, the Residence also boasts two private function rooms, capable of accommodating dinner-parties of up to 6 and 14 respectively. These rooms can also be reconfigured for other functions, including business meetings and small receptions.
