An Eco-friendly hideaway between the jungle and the beach.
The beautiful Jungle Beach by Uga Escapes commands a stretch of practically deserted beach and an equally as tranquil stretch of verdant forest. Together they create an air of seclusion. The main building is set back from the beach, so there’s a short walk from the buildings to the shore, however this only adds to the wonderful sense of privacy that emanates from the property.
Jungle Beach was built with as little effect on the surrounding plant life as possible and this eco-friendly theme runs through the whole hotel. Even down on the beach you’ll find plant life and driftwood scattered across the expanse of golden sand. This is a wonderfully natural experience.
Whether you’re looking for traditional Sri Lankan, international or Asian cuisine, you’ll be more than happy with the restaurants here. Using the best local produce available as well as fresh seafood, the menu is flexible, making the most of seasonal specialties and the catch of the day. If you are seeking a bit of romance you can also choose to dine privately in your cabin, in the gardens or on the beach.
All cabins are surrounded with foliage so solitude is easy to come by. Winding paths lead between the main buildings and the cabins. Lagoon Cabins are the furthest from the beach, but are closest to the lagoon. For more privacy, Jungle Cabins are ideal, while Beach Cabins have direct access to the beach. The Jungle Cluster Villas have a small shared pool and are ideal for groups or families.
Between the jungle and the sea, approx. 16 miles north of Trincomalee
