Excellent stay; would have given 5 stars if not for the food/ service at the restaurant. About 2 years ago we stayed at Jungle beach (run by the same company) and the food was excellent; unfortunately it was not the same at Uga Bay. There were 7 of us, and the food was brought at different intervals; at times about...

I stayed there on 2nd November 2016 on full board basis and my stay at Uga Bay was amazing! It surprised me with the beautiful entrance which has a view from the gates of their pond, the pool, the beach, the ocean and the sky. The hotel has the best beach out of all the hotels in Passikudah and the...

Every positive detail about aufs Bay that had been written here - I can confirm it 100%! Very friendly, attentive staff. Nice large rooms with AC, fan and duvet (!) Great pool and beach facilities, extensive breakfast selections including Sri Lankan hoppers and several curries. Only small nuisance: price for drinks andwines ate ridicolously high given wines qualities. We stayed...

A top notch hotel by any International standard. We met a very pleasant Manager named Roshan who made our stay even better than it already was. He was helpful and had a nice nature. Find him and have a chat with him if you plan to visit Uga. The water sports were the highlight of our stay, along with a...

We returned to Uga Bay with friends this time and were greeted with the same friendliness and warmth by all the staff at the resort. We had travelled extensively around the country and were truly appreciative of the luxurious 2 days Uga presented us with. We would encourage travellers to visit in October. It was quiet and relaxing, just what...

Our stay at Uga bay was great! We loved the setting, the beach was so amazing. The pool too was well maintained. The food was the best! The breakfast buffet was very good, we tried out their in-room dining, everything about the food was exceptional. One thing we didn't quite understand was that the prices on the in-room dining menu...

Modern well appointed boutique style beach-front hotel. We had a four night stay following a tour of the island, so this was an opportunity to 'kick-back' and relax. The apartments are smart, comfortable and clean, and face towards the beach. There is a sandy beach which is clean and safe, and even in late September the sea water was warm...
