Within just 30 minutes drive from Trincomalee, Jungle Beach is located in Kuchchaveli, on the eastern seaboard of Sri Lanka. Jungle Beach is every bit as its name implies - spectacularly set in an entirely natural and harmonious blend of Sri Lanka’s most celebrated virtues – its wondrous beaches and teeming jungles. Nestled within a secluded 10-acre reserve, sandwiched between the vast Indian Ocean and a lagoon filled with colorful birds, this luxury beach resort beckons with over 4km of private beaches, tropical mangroves and endless pursuits. 48 luxurious villas of modern design yet crafted from indigenous materials as to appear born of the jungle and fused in harmony with the natural surroundings all offering spectacular views of the ocean. Each villa tucked deeply within luscious foliage, offers utmost privacy and seclusion. Spacious 650 square feet villas, each one luxuriously appointed with king sized beds, high-end entertainment systems, private decks and outdoor rain showers.
Keeps the high standard that Uga hotels are known for. Beach bungalows are awesome, food delicious and plenty of it. Jungle is the right name. Nice and shady when the sun shines but a bit dark,of course, when it is raining.
The Hotel is around 20min away from Trincomalee. It's between plants and trees. You have a very nice beach next to the hotel! The Staff is friendly and helpful. And then the Food! Yes, it's a little bit expensive for SriLanka but you will love it!!!!
Spent 4 nights at Jungle Beach. It is a very nice property, perfect for relaxation.
+ : Really nice place to relax, the hotel was empty when we were there. Stay in a Beach cabin if you can as they are very quiet (avoid Lagoon cabins, they are right next to the busy road). The beach is very quiet, pool area is nice too. Staff is very nice as well.
- : Stick to Sri Lankan food, rice and fresh fruits. Everything else is frozen food. The ocean is sadly full of plastic trash: take a trash bag and give one hour of your time to help collect plastic trash from the beach. Spa is a bit disappointing.
we were on a railway adventure holiday and this was our 2nd night accommodations arrived quite late great reception only going to the room lighting was a bit low but the room or should say bungalow we stayed in was terrific food and staff service made you feel very special landscaping and gardens beautiful could have stayed a week
So we had a chance to explore yet another of the Uga hotels in Sri Lanka and as always it did not disappoint! The hotel has a different beach concept and is built into a mangrove forest so feels very shady but when you head to the beach all of a sudden you stand at this wide impeccable beach and are blinded by the sunlight. Its a cool concept and not one any of us had seen elsewhere in Asia.
We managed to upgrade our rooms to the cluster (three rooms around one large shared pool) we would greatly recommend for large groups travelling together as it gives you privacy and quite an exclusive feeling (not that the main pool felt overcrowded!!!). The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bathrooms were half indoor with a huge outdoor area shower which was a cool add on. But since we had the cluster to ourselves we would just hang out outside all the time or at the beach.
The thing that I want to rave about most however is the food. Firstly they serve a mix of local and western food, go for the local because it is excellent (the locals say so themselves), try the crab curry! Breakfast comes on these large trays and in separate courses (depending if you go for western or local breakfast), you get up feeling way too full. We were served by the restaurant manager (apologies I forgot his name, maybe Manoj?) but he went out of his way to make every meal experience superb. One of us was a cealic (and this is often met by a blank stare in this part of Asia but isnt a problem as local food is generally gluten free) but both the restaurant manager and chef went out of their way to offer gluten free bread, shakes and snacks. They even came out to tell us where they source their gluten free products from. Absolutely incredible and the best service we had ever seen in Sri Lanka!

It was August when we visited. Weather was pleasant but it did rain at night. Even if it rains, swimming in the pool would be nice. We did not swim in the ocean but sea was not very rough but a little choppy. Why don't you... More
