Situated right by Passekudah beach is Uga Bay, a charming luxury boutique hotel offering peace, tranquility, and its very own private sand beach. Owned by Uga Escapes, the hotel has 46 rooms and suites, all of which boast stunning Mediterranean-style architecture and wonderful views of the Passekudah Bay area.

All accommodation at Uga Bay is specially designed so that guests have plenty of private space. Each one of the 22 Beach Studios is situated on the ground floor and offers direct beach access, while the 22 Ocean Studios are all on the first floor with better views of the ocean. The two-bedroom Bay Suite comes with its own open-air plunge pool, as does the Beach Villa, which is spread across two stories and has private access to the beach. Both of the Beach Villa’s two bedrooms are en-suite.

Uga Bay’s restaurant offers a range of Sri Lankan specialties, as well as some international dishes. All seafood served here is sourced by local fishermen from the very waters that guests can see from their rooms. The hotel doesn’t impose any set meal times so that guests can eat when they feel like it. Private dining is also available, with guests able to enjoy dining in poolside cabanas, poolside BBQs or even beachside BBQs for their exclusive dining experience. Guests can also dine in the comfort of their own room.

Passekudah Bay is naturally protected, so its water are always calm. This makes it a great destination for water sports enthusiasts, especially since there are a number of water-based activities offered in the bay seasonally. These include windsurfing, jet skiing, scuba diving, kayaking and snorkelling, to name just a few. Many guests enjoy venturing out into the bay and diving down below to see the WW2 wrecks. At the hotel itself, guests can make use of the infinity pool, keep up with their fitness in the gym or simply relax in the underground spa complete with ocean views.

Children are very welcome at Uga Bay. The hotel has a babysitting service available and there’s an on-site playground for children to enjoy. Because of its beachside location, parents are advised to keep an eye on their younger ones at all times, especially when on the beach itself.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
