Jungle Beach

Making its appearance through the lush landscape of Kuchchaveli which is located 24-KM from Trincomalee is ‘Jungle Beach’. The resort presented by Uga Escapes basks in an exotic location on the East coast, 285-KM from the cosmopolitan metropolis of Colombo.

Best Known For

Creatively incorporating existing plant life into its design, this Trincomalee hotel is the quintessence of dwelling in a luxurious tree house. Each of the chalets either faces the sea / lagoon or camouflages the jungle, blending into a picture of a far-flung summer garden. Fashioned with indigenous wood, the villas look like they have sprouted up from the jungle itself.

The Experience

The lagoon cabins that enjoy an eco-friendly theme are furnished with traditional décor. The jungle cabins feature outdoor living spaces that are appointed with daybeds. Their interiors are adorned with cement floors, cotton covered furnishings and traditional artifacts to create a spontaneous and unpretentious ambiance. The beach cabins are scattered on a scenic private beach, aligned with their own private walkways to the shore. Roofs are thatched with Illuk leaves to give the cabins an organic character. The jungle cluster cabin which is ideal for friends and families travelling together is a knot of villas furnished with a private pool.

The restaurant at ‘Jungle Beach’ serves authentic Sri Lankan classics and Western picks with a succulent array of seafood whipped up in the traditional way, with home-grown goodness and outspoken Sri Lankan condiments having a prime role to play in them. Tuck into a picnic lunch on the shores or dine outdoors under the dream of the star-strewn sky.

Settle into the soothing embrace of a herbal massage at the spa. Make a splash in the pool. Cross the bridge over the lotus pond and head over to the bar to enjoy a chilled beer. Borrow a bicycle from the hotel and witness the beauty of the flanking tropical jungle as you pedal through the windy rustic paths.

Around and About

A beautiful mishmash of nature and history reveals itself in the alluring seaside sanctuary of Trincomalee. Home to a natural deep-water harbour, the port city offers brilliant, deep blue oceans and unspoiled white beaches, with the nearby beaches of Nilaveli and Uppuveli being the highlights. Miles of sandy carpets stretch along a palm-dotted landscape creating an evocative picture to ease into. The Marble Beach offers safe and calm waters making it ideal for families with young children. The Pigeon Island National Park, a little islet thrown off the shores of the Nilaveli Beach, is a snorkeler’s place of dream. The underwater landscape consists of over 100 species of coral reefs teeming with multi-coloured fish. Between May to October, colonies of dolphins and whales grace the oceans of Trincomalee.

The Fort Fredrick of Trincomalee, an olden artistic spectacle by the Dutch, leads to a few attractions including the Swami Rock and Koneswaram Temple. Intricate Hindu architecture, ornate carvings and vibrant colours accentuate the deep ambiance of the temple.

The Kanniya Hot Water Springs are famed for their waters of varying temperatures that range from the lukewarm to extremely hot, which are reputed to have a recuperative power. The ancient stupa of Velgam Vehera is an off-the-beaten-path attraction hidden away in an opaque jungle, flanked by a tank.

A nature stroll in and around Kuchchaveli affords you with a sequence of lush sights. Echoes from the days-of-yore ceaselessly interfuse into the luxuriant jungle amidst the soft lapping of the Indian Ocean. This is ‘Trinco’ in all its dramatic colours.
