Uga Bay Resort

Eastern Province

The centrepiece in a beautiful bay, Uga Bay, is a luxury resort close to the centre of Passekudah on the East Coast of Sri Lanka. Uga Bay is a stylish and relaxing retreat with a blend of tropical and Mediterranean architecture.

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 have 24-hour butler service, a plunge pool, and a terrace.

All meals are served at Uga Bay’s restaurant, which specializes in freshly caught seafood with Mediterranean and Asian flavours. There are no set meal times; you eat when 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 programs. There's also a gym, pool, and fitness centre, and nature lovers will enjoy snorkelling on the coral reefs.

As well as an unspoiled beach, 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, which was shipwrecked in the First World War. Uga Bay is the perfect spot to enjoy motorized and non-motorized 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 area's numerous cultural and historical sites.

Why we recommend Uga Bay Resort

Sitting pretty on Pasikuda Beach, on the East Coast of Sri Lanka, Uga Bay Resort boasts a very central spot. Centered around the brilliant blue of the infinity pool, the Beach Villas come with beach views from all rooms and a terrace is a good place to just relax. We like Ocean Studios which offer more expansive panoramas. Sunset cocktails at the beach bar are a must for your itinerary.
