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.

Would come back for so many reasons

Melbourne, Australia

I was looking for a nice place to get married while considering a holiday in Sri Lanka. I found this place on the internet and thought it look nice. With 3 weeks notice, Jagath organised my dream wedding. The staff were so lovely, great perks from the resort just to make the day even more special. I cannot recommenced this place enough. The food, drinks, beach, rooms, massage and staff were perfect!

Exceptional in every means

Kalutara, Sri Lanka

Truly an exceptional stay we had here. Located in an ideal location, bit far from the hustle and bustle of nilaveli region yet not too far so that you can reach there in 15mins from nilaveli beach. We booked jungle cabins and the room, bathroom and balcony are very spacious. Room architecture is also admirable which gives you the feeling of being inside a jungle. The lagoon is home for variety of animals including several crocodiles. Rooms are built elevated from the ground so that animals could not enter. We spotted a small snake close to our room which ran away seeing us. Be bit cautious when roaming around specially in night time. Beach area is super clean and you can have a swim if you desire. Life guards are on duty. Pool is awesome and they have a jacuzzi spot in the pool which is the main highlight. Although they don’t have a very large buffet, food variety is good and taste is very good. Service is exceptional from every individual which added in to our pleasant experience there. One suggestion is to add a curtain to outdoor shower area door, it’s bit scary in the night time since there’s no cover from there. 🙂
