This is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The setting is stunning. Miles of white sand beach. The resort itself is luxurious and feels quiet and personal. The staff are friendly and go out of their way to help you in every way. We had a room in front of the sea which was beautiful and everything...

My daughters and I have just returned from the most fabulous holiday at Uga Bay. We feel so refreshed that we are considering earmarking it as an Annual Easter retreat to recharge the batteries. It was as if we had lived on the beach for 15 nights, enhanced by the helpfulness, friendliness and courtesy of the staff without exception. Every...

We booked this resort through luxury escapes and it is luxury. The resort is on the best part of the beach and the lush green lawns and palm trees leading to it are lovely. We can't really see the ocean from our balcony but we can look to the greenery. Prices at the resort aren't cheap but ok. There is...

Rooms were big & we used our balcony a lot. Bathroom was excellent. We didn't have ocean views but only because the palm trees blocked the view. Food was good. Not a lot of activities to do so if you want to laze around the beach or pool this is the perfect place.

Top notch place with beautiful rooms and facilities. Delicious food and service at the restaurant and bar. If you want to completely relax then this is the place for you.... there is absolutely nothing to do. There is not much shade in the stunning grounds although apparently trees are still growing after the tsunami damage, but the pool loungers are...

Very nice hotel in a great location. The beach is stunning (when there is no crowd). The staff were very nice and helpful. The food was good, there was a good selection even for vegetarians which is admirable. Definitely a place you would want to come again :)

If you are looking for the perfect escape from modern day stresses and crowded cities, then look no further! The private beach and infinity pool are flawless, offering a beautiful surrounding for cocktails, jet skiing, relaxation and private dinning. The rooms are very spacious, extremely well kept and the view is unforgettable. The ceiling to floor windows allow you to...

Uga Bay is situated in a prime location and offers every comfort and luxury with unparalleled peace and serenity. Uga Bay is placed smack in the middle of an array of hotels along a popular stretch of beach in Passikudah. And of all the hotels I truly believe Uga Bay has the best beach of the area, ideal for bathing...
