Start or end your holiday in the Uga Residence. This is a small boutique hotel in the heart of the bustling capital Colombo. Built in the 19th century by a wealthy lawyer named Sheikh Salehboy Moosajee, it once hosted governors, maharajas, aristocrats, and the crème de la crème of Ceylon's colonial society. Today it offers its guests eleven luxurious rooms, an exquisite restaurant, and a cosy bar. Due to its very central location, it is easy to start your sightseeing tour from here.
