Uga Riva

A treasured, restored period property

A heritage property set within a private coconut palm estate

Uga Riva is a manor house that was built nearly two centuries ago and has been lovingly restored to showcase its original features such as pillared verandas, delicate fretwork, graceful arches and a traditional courtyard. Once the home of a prominent Colombo family, there’s a feeling of distinguished style that remains within its walls and secluded, private 5 acre coconut palm estate. Staying here brings a sense of complete calm and serenity and with its convenient location just 30 minutes from the international airport, it’s a wonderful place to start or end (or both) an adventure in Sri Lanka.

This is a boutique hotel with just seven luxurious bedrooms that, along with the discreet personalised service afforded every guest, conjures up a feeling of luxury and exclusivity. The sprawling manicured gardens and refreshing swimming pool simply add to the refined, calm and elegant atmosphere. Sri Lanka is known for its delicious and flavoursome cuisine and Uga Riva prides itself on the exceptional dining offered to its guests. The talented chefs prepare a range of mouth-watering dishes that can be enjoyed in the house or alfresco in secluded areas of the tropical gardens.
