A laid-back beach retreat with great food, friendly service and seasonal whale-watching opportunities.
Originally designed to resemble a ship, the Trinco Blu by Cinnamon has since had a redesign but maintains its retro-chic appeal with stylish décor and furnishings. Combine with this, its excellent beach, marine life offshore and smiling service and you can't go wrong.
The east coast of Sri Lanka is seasonally frequented by both whales and dolphins and during this time the Trinco Blu offers daily sightseeing trips out onto the water. You’ll also find the local fishermen using beaches near Trinco Blu and watching them casting, mending and bringing in their nets can be fascinating. If you fancy a little seafood after watching the catch be hauled in, The Crab restaurant is ideal. Set by the beach, you can dine on the deck or with your toes in the sand and indulge in the signature crab dishes the restaurant is named after. There is also a buffet restaurant and bar, where you must try the Trinco Blu cocktail.
Rooms are bright, airy and comfortably furnished with splashes of bright blues and vibrant oranges. Superior Rooms look out over the main resort, so if you want to walk straight out onto the sand, a Beach Chalet may suit you better, or upgrade to a Suite for a little more luxury.
4 miles from the natural harbour of Trincomalee, set before pristine golden sands
