Uga bay resort is located at Passekudah, just 36 kilometres from Batticaloa airport, on Sri Lanka’s East coast. This fusion of tropical and Mediterranean design which creates a stunning centrepiece in a beautiful bay is the perfect place to relax while surrounded by the natural wonders of the area.
Guests at Uga Bay do not have to follow set mealtimes, instead they are encouraged to follow their own body clock and eat whenever they want. The emphasis in the Restaurant is on fine fresh seafood, with the chefs supporting the local fishermen from Passekudah. There are many options if guests want a Private Dining experience; a romantic dinner for two in one of the pool side cabanas, or a barbeque on the beach under the palms, perhaps a dinner served on the private terrace of the suite.
With a huge stretch of pristine beach which slopes gently into to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean this is a haven for water sports enthusiasts who can try kayaking, windsurfing or even jet skis. In deeper waters there are coral reefs for snorkelling. Experienced divers will be thrilled to experience wreck of HMS Hermes, which lies at a depth of 44 metres; she was the first purpose built aircraft carrier in the world and was sunk by the Japanese in World War 1. Guests can borrow bicycles and explore the surrounding area with its local fishing villages, markets and Hindu temples. In Batticaloa there are the remains of an Old Dutch Fort or further afield the ancient UNESCO World Heritage sites of Polonnaruwa are well worth a visit.
