Situated on Park Street at the heart of Colombo, is this 250 year old colonial bungalow turned hotel. Once the abode of Sheik Salehbhoy Moosajee, whose family was prominent traders and socialites since the 19th century, it is one of the few remaining bungalows of the colonial era that still stands in Colombo. Although the property is located in a serene atmosphere, it is only a few minutes away from shops, restaurants and galleries, making it a perfect hideaway for the discerning business and leisure traveler who wants to experience the big city. Residence by Uga Escapes offers guests a more personalised and discreet service and accommodation the larger hotels cannot provide.
The hotel offers 10 rooms and 2 suites furnished with modern luxuries. The suites are designed with colonial antique furniture and all amenities. The Beghum Suite has its own large terrace and garden for private functions. The 10 deluxe spacious rooms with high ceilings and views of a well-kept back garden have an open plan design and consist of en suite bathroom with rain shower, living space, dining area and dressing space. Sleek dark wooden furniture, leather accessories, floor to ceiling curtains and one-off original paintings by Sri Lanka’s most famous modern artist Pushpakumara decorate the rooms. King sized double beds with the finest Indian linen, cable TV, music system, DVD, coffee machine, mini bar and personal safes are available in all rooms and suites. All suites and five of the deluxe rooms have Jacuzzi Spa Bathtubs.
A varied and extensive menu of Asian and European cuisine and flexible mealtimes are offered to guests. The hotel also has a pool, a gym, a library with board games, a meeting room, photocopying, WiFi, in-room massages, laundry services, ironing services, dry cleaning, currency exchange and private checkout and check in.
