Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Uga Bay is located in Passekudah Bay, famed for its long pristine beaches in Sri Lanka’s Northern Province.

Rooms at Uga Bay

The expertly designed Uga Bay has been built so that all 48 rooms have views over the immaculate sands and warm blue water of the bay. The uninterrupted views of an Ocean View room give an enviable vantage point to gaze out to sea, while the intimate Bay Suite has its own private cantilevered plunge pool.

Food & drink

The fresh seafood and local produce at Uga Bay are transformed into gastronomic treats using the best of Sri Lankan and oriental influences in the beautiful elevated restaurant. If you're after a more intimate setting, take advantage of the hotel's many private dining experiences with a barbecue on the beach or dinner on your own terrace. 


Even the world class spa has beach views, but of course you may opt to take your massage to a poolside cabana and listen to the sound of crashing waves.

Activities at Uga Bay

The shallow waters of the bay lend itself to splashing around in the sun, but an exhilarating jet-ski ride might be on the cards for the more active amongst us. Snorkelling the coral reefs give an opportunity to explore the tropical marine life and for more experienced divers, the HMS Hermes shipwreck has lay buried on the ocean floor for nearly 100 years.
