Jungle Beach Resort

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Artfully incorporating existing trees and natural plant life into its design, you’ll feel like you’re staying in a tree house at the Jungle Beach Resort — but, we assure you, a tree house of the most luxurious kind. Rooms face either the beach, the lagoon or are immersed in the jungle. Teak walkways and stepping stones connect areas and lead the way to a rustic open dining area where you can hear the lapping of waves and birdsong. There is also a bar just across the lotus pond and a floating platform for lounge chairs by the pool, a waterfall cascading in the distance. If you can tear yourself away from such tropical splendour, the beach is well worth a visit — it’s one of the best in Sri Lanka. Enjoy a whale or dolphin watching excursion, or discover a wealth of underwater life as you snorkel at Pigeon Island Marine National Park. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served to suit your timetable, utilising only the best local ingredients. A private beach picnic under the stars is also highly recommended!

Our jungle cabin was clean and spacious and the outdoor shower was fun. We had delicious meals in both restaurants, the grilled steak (a speciality of theirs, as well as seafood) on the beach, sitting out under the stars was magical. The beach is very clean and very quiet. We enjoyed the snorkling trip to Pigeon Island and saw turtle, black tip sharks and many other very colourful fish and following day we were very lucky to see two blue whales, a whale shark and dolphins, however not so lucky with a very choppy sea! Definitely a great place to go and chill! Read less

We spent three relaxing nights at the Jungle Beach at the end of our hectic holiday - this resort is in an amazing location, right on the beach, around 30 minutes from Trincomalee. The huts - we stayed in a Jungle Cabin - are outstandingly luxurious, clean, comfortable and well maintained. The outdoor rain shower was an added experience. The staff are attentive, always on hand to help with any requests and ready to do whatever is required to make your stay exceptional. The various restaurants provide a wide variety of tasty, freshly prepared food with both local and international options. The resort's beaches are immaculate and the activities proposed are plentiful - we went on the resort's snorkeling outing to Pigeon Island, where - led by the hotel's guide - we were able to explore the natural reserve's coral reef, swimming with sea turtles, exotic fish and Black-tip sharks. This was an unforgettable experience for us, thank you Uga Escapes! Read less

One of the best visits and stay ever experienced. The location and the hotel cannot be justified by the pictures, it is the best location ever visited so far. What stands out the most is the hospitality with genuine down to earth staff across all facilities from reception, to restaurant, to everyone are always welcoming with warm smiles and ready to help at all times. What matters the most at any get aways are the location ambience which stands out as 10+ and the food beyond taste buds could ever justify, and finally most of all the friendly staff who are just so good who would want you to be there for more. Our 2 nights experience across all facilities provided from gym, restaurant, rooms, swimming pool to the private beach are all beyond what we expected and cannot give enough of a rating for what we experienced. Definitely the best get aways and a highly recommended location to visit. #AshAndAmanzAdventures Read less
