Jungle Beach Resort by Uga Escapes

Escape amongst the trees

Jungle Beach Resort by Uga Escapes is, as the name suggests, a beachfront resort nestled within virtually untouched jungle on Sri Lanka's east coast.

It offers an intimate boutique experience, having only one restaurant serving stunning local cuisine, and an assortment of cabins scattered between trees and sandy shores; each fitting into their natural setting with thatched roofs and a contemporary eco style. Relax on a lounger by the main pool, sipping cocktails in the sun, or discover your inner adrenaline junkie with jet skiing on the clear blue sea. A tranquil spa is there to discover too, providing a wealth of opportunity to relax and find your inner glow.

Perfect Honeymoon

We visited Jungle Beach during 4th and 5th January 2020 for our honeymoon. Even though the resort is located 25km from Trinco town, the place is perfect for relaxation and some personal time. The reception and restaurant staff were so friendly and welcoming with flexible check in and check out along with travel arrangements. The food was top notch ( set menus) and had a wide variety to select. The beach was clean and serene even though the sea was rough so no swimming allowed. Milanda from HR who visited the hotel during this period arranged us a special cake and also private dining experience to make our stay a memorable one. Special mention to Vidushan and Thowfeek from room service for their excellent support and making the rooms tidy and cleaner with some surprise decorations and always greeting us with a warm smile. Overall its a perfect honeymoon for us and worth every penny spent. We will visit again soon :)

A very special place

We loved our time at Jungle Beach. The property is cleverly designed and you really feel immersed in the landscape. We had a jungle villa which felt very private and there were lovely touches such as outdoor showers etc. The staff were excellent and really could not do more for you, service was exceptional - you can always tell how good a hotel is when they are at maximum capacity - as it was between Xmas and New Year it was full but that didn't impact at all, a sign of a fantastic hotel. Food was also outstanding. Only tiny negatives would be the size of the swimming pool, it's really quite small for the number of rooms. Would return in a heartbeat!
