Jungle Beach

Jungle Beach is a secluded beach resort in Trincomalee on Sri Lanka’s unspoilt northeastern coast with the feel of a luxurious tree house.

Tucked beneath verdant mature trees and plenty of understorey plant life, Jungle Beach is a secluded beach resort on Sri Lanka’s unspoilt northeastern coast with the feel of a luxurious tree house. Three choices of room are available: beach, lagoon or jungle-facing. All are generously sized, and designed for guests to appreciate their natural environments, with large windows and furnished verandas. Some also have inviting outdoor showers.

The sprawling main swimming pool is artfully nestled amid lush foliage and lily ponds, with illumination by lanterns at night so atmospheric poolside dinners can be enjoyed. Guests may also feast by firelit beside the ocean – an alternative to eating in Jungle Beach’s breezy bar and restaurant.   

The highlight of the area is without a doubt the white, sandy beaches such as Nilaveli and Uppaveli, as well as the deep water Trincomalee, a desirable water sports destination. There are also a host of cultural and historical attractions to visit, from the dizzying rocky promontory at Lover’s Leap to Fort Frederick, the Kanniya Hot Springs and Thiriyai Temple. Seasonal whale-watching is possible off the coast whilst a tour of Kokkilai Lagoon is worthwhile if you’re interested in birding.

Sri Lanka Overview

Why Sri Lanka: This remarkable island off the south eastern coast of India might be small but it is jam packed with spectacular landscapes, a rich cultural heritage and ancient historical sites including 7 World Heritage Sites! Sri Lanka is also still relatively unspoilt by tourism, although there are many unique and wonderful hotels throughout the country.

When to Go: Dec – Mar is considered the best time to visit, being the driest season on the west and south coasts, in the ‘Cultural Triangle’ and up in hill country. The east coast is best from May – Sep when many of the beaches along the west and south coasts are experiencing the monsoon. During the monsoon, it is possible to travel as the rain is not constant – you’ll also enjoy lower prices and less crowds. The temperatures are high throughout the year, averaging around 27°C.

Combine With: Neighbouring India, Bhutan or Nepal.

Getting There: Fly into the international airport north of Colombo, the capital.
