    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    A five-star beach resort on Sri Lanka’s east coast, Uga Bay Resort is situated on the deep, golden sand beaches of the protected Passikudah Bay. In this pristine beachside setting, Uga Bay Resort is built in a semi-circle to maximise sea views from across the manicured lawns. The atmosphere is one of barefoot luxury, with resort buildings occupying a distinguished distance from the beach itself at the head of a manicured lawn. The architecture shows a fusion of tropical and Mediterranean influences, with oversized pavilion-style structures sheltered by symmetrical sloping rooftops. Here, two open-air lounging terraces extend the living spaces from breezy interiors. This is where the restaurant is located and the fusion cuisine and fine dining fare incorporates only the freshest local ingredients – predominantly seafood served with locally grown produce. The soothing sound of water is the backdrop, created by an elongated water feature and a huge infinity swimming pool which terminates at the beach and blends seamlessly with the sea. By day the sun loungers are tended to by pool bar staff, at night delicate lighting forges an intimate atmosphere for evening meals and sun-downers. Private dining in various locations around the resort is also a possibility for those seeking romance. Uga Bay offers 46 rooms and suites, and the selection is unified by an oriental-inspired design style, ocean views and a generous feeling of space. The most luxurious are the Beach Villas, which spread across two storeys and have a private plunge pool and 24-hour butler service. Pastime facilities at Uga Bay include an array of water sports, yoga and meditation sessions and an indulgent underground spa where Ayurvedic techniques are harnessed in signature treatments.
