Jungle Beach

Trincomale,  North East

Overview

Hidden within a 10 acre Jungle beach reserve , close to Trincomelee’s famous beaches, this unique resort introduces a sense of lush green fun to a classic beach family holiday.  A short sea plane ride fro Colombo’s International airport, the East coast is idyllic in the summer months when the more popular South and West coasts can be rainy and ‘sea rough’.

Quite remote, this luxurious ‘take’ on tree houses is a far cry from Robinson Crusoe living. Also a welcome change to Trincomelee’s merchant and Dutch influences – The East’s largest shipping port.

‘Trinco’ has its fair share of history; hot springs regularly used on holy days and the famous ‘Lovers Leap’ – a heart felt fable not to be repeated from these extremely high rocks.

Uga escapes’ reputation as a 5 star retreat, pampering, excursions is evident throughout whilst retaining a real sense of local culture and village staff.

Things to do & local tips

  • Spa- traditional Ayurvedic treatments or rejuvenating beauty treatments

 

  • Water sports: snorkeling, jet skiing, beach volleyball, and sand sculpting are available for the more active. You will be surprised how quickly the local villages will volunteer to make up a volleyball team.

 

  • History: Grab a hotel bike and amble through the local fishing villages and temples.  Trinco offers lots of rich historic excursions from bathing spas to Iconic Hundu temples.  The harbor is an important “World trading bridge” so can appear more Industrial than traditional.

 

  • Cultural Triangle: an 1.5-2 hour drive to admire the ancient temple ruins and fresco’s of Pollanuruwa and Dambulla

 

  • Safari: Wilpattu National park  has a healthy elephant  and bird population, a unique and emotional experience for all age groups.
