Ritz-Carlton’s Al Wadi Desert & Al Hamra Beach are two luxurious resorts under the same management. Totally different locations and experiences, but with a consistent unique style and ambience.
The Wallawwa Chic boutique, Sri Lankan style, with low rise colonial heritage influenced design. Just 15 minutes drive from Colombo airport, The Wallawwa makes a great introduction to your Sri Lanka experience, or is equally convenient for a night or two before flying home. Colombo city is 45 minutes drive away.
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina is a popular first class hotel with good facilities.
Located beach front at Jumeirah, 30 minutes from downtown and 40 minutes to the airport.
Uga Bay Passikudah is an attractive stylish boutique hotel, centrally located in the heart of the fast developing Passiudah Resort. You can drive from Colombo in just over 5 hours, or easily combine with a tour to the cultural triangle and / or Uga Jungle Beach. Alternatively there are Cinnamon Air domestic flights from Colombo to Batticaloa, which is 30 minutes away.
The Uga Chena Huts are due to open in late December 2015. The designs look wonderfully extravagant and luxurious and the word “hut“ is wonderfully tongue in cheek.
Just 20 individual dwellings, all Junior suite style with their own plunge pool.
Uga Jungle Beach Resort is located 11 miles north of the port of Trincomalee. A Robinson Crusoe hide and chic rustic retreat, with thatched roofed cabins sandwiched between the lagoon and the Indian Ocean. 6 hours drive across the island from Colombo, or there are domestic Cinnamon Air flights.
Uga are a fast growing hotel chain within Sri Lanka. Their boutique resorts are stylish, combining contemporary comforts with heritage traditions. We feature just two of their collection, but can arrange others on request.
Uga Ulagalla is a luxurious eco focused resort, located close to the ancient capital of Anuradhapura. A perfect base for exploring the cultural triangle. 4 hours drive north east from Colombo, although we suggest some sightseeing en route, with Dambulla Caves particularly suggested. The main building dates back 150 years, so there is a fine sense of history and tradition.
Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is one of the very best priced hotels in the region. Incredible ornate luxury and great beachfront setting. The design style seems to take influence from the Taj Mahal, The Palace of Versailles, and probably a few more and then has added Arabia extravagance.
Yas Viceroy Hotel is a fantastic experience. Particularly suggested for 2/3 nights en route to the Indian Ocean islands or Far East. located on Yas Island, 15 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes drive to central downtown city. A luxurious, futuristic property with a unique “honeycomb“ exterior.
