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.

This was last hotel before going to Colombo to fly home. It was the perfect choice. It is an explendid resort 10km from Trincomalee, in the east coast of Sri Lanka. It has a main building and several cabins, builtin harmony with the surroundings. Our cabin was literally in from of the beach, a few meters through a path protected by green shrubs. It had a varanda and an outside shower with total privacy. The room is huge and very comfortable with all the expected amenities.
They have a beach are, with bar and restaurant, beach chairs and umbrellas. Service in all the areas is five star.
Food was delicious in all meals. We had lunch and dinner at the beach restaurant. This last under the stars, with the waves sound and illuminated by torches and a fire. Perfect!
There is also a spa with lots of options of treatments done by two balinese young women. Each one of us have chosen a different one and we truly enjoyed.
The beach is very beautiful and practically private, with white sands and clean blue waters.
In sum, a paradise. It was difficult to leave.

We never had to worry about being vegan here. Apart from the great beach and the quiet, beautiful room, Chef Wijesini and the other staff always made sure that we had specially prepared vegan food for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the week of our stay. It was always different, tasty and interesting. The other diners looked over at our food, and wondered why the chef always came to our table to explain our daily banquets. With Chef Wjesini, nothing was ever too much trouble. Also the daily managers were lovely. If anything, they checked a lot to see that we were okay with our food. Too much attention is never too much. Thank you so much.
