About the location
The port city of Trincomalee sits up in Sri Lanka’s north-east corner; trace the coastline north for 20-odd kilometres and you’ll find the petite village of Kuchchaveli and a 10-acre reserve that’s home to the Uga Jungle Beach. Cocooned in lush jungle, it opens out onto a postcard-perfect beach – all soft blonde sands and calm, swimmable waters.
Behind the resort you’ll find tropical mangroves and a bird-flecked lagoon, while nearby you can tiptoe through serene Buddhist temples and wallow in natural hot springs. The Pigeon Island Marine National Park is practically on the doorstep, with reef sharks, rays and turtles hiding among the corals. Between May and October you can hop aboard whale-watching boats, too – blue whales and pods of spinner dolphins can be spotted gliding through the waters, as well as the occasional ‘super pod’ of sperm whales.
50 minutes from Trincomalee airport which is a 1 hour 15 minute flight from Colombo International airport.

Nice large rooms with all the amenities you would expect. Only drawback we found was the attitude of some of the staff on arrival. Nothing was made very clear as to where the restaurant was and times of meals, signage could have been better too especially in the evenings and warnings about a couple of the steps up to Reception.
The beach was great and its a place we have long wanted to visit as have been told by Sri Lankans how beautiful that coast is. Now the war has finished its safe to visit. We expected it to be wet being the wet season up on that coast but we had beautiful sunshine all the time. Food was very good.

Me and my wife had the best visit at Jungle Beach. From the first second of entering we received the best service from Naveen and it blossomed through our whole stay. The place is beyond amazing and the staff did everything they could to make our stay extra special. The best ending of our adventure in Sri Lanka. Very grateful and recommend everyone to take part of this experience.
