A contemporary and luxurious retreat overlooking idyllic Passikudah Bay, ideal for snorkelling and diving.
Uga Bay has an enviable position right in the middle of a stunning stretch of sand and it has fantastic views out over the hotel’s palm-fringed garden and the bay. Not only does this make Uga Bay ideal for those looking to relax on a pristine beach, it’s also perfect for watersports enthusiasts, with a selection of activities available seasonally. As the bay is protected, swimming and snorkelling are very popular, and as it is shallow for a long way out it’s great for families too. Deeper into the bay is where divers explore wrecks and reefs.
Back on dry land you’ll find a generously sized infinity pool as well as an unusual underground spa which has sea views and provides a selection of Balinese and Swedish style massages. Uga Bay also has a rather good reputation when it comes to food, even though it has just the one restaurant. The chef and their team work hard to create a menu filled with Sri Lankan specialities, as well as international favourites. You can also choose from a range of private dining locations.
We recommend choosing a Beach Studio if you love to walk straight out onto the beach. Above these are the Ocean Studios which all have balconies with views out over the palm-lined beach (views of the sea are obstructed by the palm trees). For a real treat, you could upgrade to either a two-bedroom Bay Suite which features a private pool, or the two-bedroom, two-storey Beach Villa.
