Hotel Review

Of all the spots to stay in the gorgeous, vastly underrated Pasikudah Bay, Uga Bay has contemporary luxury, cracking cuisine and modern beachfront chill totally nailed. Whether you’re eager to simply soak up the sun from your private terrace, lounge by the infinity pool as a family, dive beneath the warm, rippling waves or enjoy a restorative Balinese massage, this is the place to be. Gaze out at the breathtaking bay from your smart first floor Ocean Suite or take things up a notch with a contemporary two-bedroom Beach Villa, complete with private plunge pool. Savour a smoothie with your toes in the sand or hit the stylish bar before tucking into a terrific feast of fresh seafood at the resort restaurant.

Uga Bay

Beach barbecues and private dining, infinity pool and underground spa, pristine coral reefs and sandy shores… life’s peachy at this boutique five-star beach resort. With a view of the Indian Ocean from every room, this is the ultimate laidback retreat on Sri Lanka’s resurgent, pretty east coast.
