The centerpiece in a beautiful bay, Uga Bay, is a luxury resort situated close to the centre of Passekudah on the East Coast of Sri Lanka, and is an ideal spot from which to explore the city and all its attractions and activities. Uga Bay is a stylish and relaxing retreat with a blend of tropical and Mediterranean architecture. The resort benefits from a superb location, impeccable service and excellent facilities, which include a gym, pool and fitness centre.
Thanks to the property’s semi-circular design, each of the 46 stylish rooms at Uga Bay has a fabulous view of the ocean. The huge two-storey Bay Villa and Beach Chalet come with 24-hour butler service, plunge pool and terrace.
All meals are served Uga Bay’s restaurant that specialises in freshly caught seafood, with Mediterranean and Asian flavours. There are no set meal times; you simply eat when you are hungry. High tea is available in the afternoons and there’s a beach bar. Private dining is a highlight. Picnics and barbecues can be arranged and you can choose to dine where you wish, perhaps in a poolside cabana, on the beach or in a more secluded spot on the sand.
For a unique experience try a treatment at the underground spa at Uga Bay. Relax in serene surroundings as you look out across the sea. They also offer yoga and meditation programmes.
As well as an unspoilt beach to enjoy, nature lovers will enjoy snorkelling on the coral reefs. There is great diving to be done at nearby wrecks, the most famous being HMS Hermes, shipwrecked in the First World War. Uga Bay is the perfect spot to enjoy motorised and non-motorised sports such as jet skis, waterskiing or windsurfing. For those wishing to venture out of the hotel, you can hire bicycles, and the resort can arrange trips to the numerous cultural and historical sites in the area.
