The East Coast
Uga Jungle Beach

Designed to blend seamlessly with its surroundings, this wonderful resort has artfully incorporated existing trees and natural plant life into its design, making you feel like you’re staying in a luxurious tree house by the sea!

Sri Lanka’s East Coast is best visited during the UK Summer holidays when the weather is warm and sunny, and we think Uga Jungle Beach is a great add-on to a stay in the Cultural Triangle if you are seeking some beach time before heading home.

Facilities & Activities

Nestled within a secluded 10-acre reserve, between the vast Indian Ocean and a lagoon filled with colourful birds, this picturesque beach hotel beckons with over 4km of private beach, tropical mangroves and endless pursuits.

Resort activities include cookery lessons, cycling, and kite making. Or take to the water on a jet ski, fish in the mangroves, or enjoy an unforgettable whale and dolphin-watching tour (extra charges for activities apply). There is also a spa, gym and delightful main swimming pool.

Located in the quaint coastal village of Kuchchaveli North of Trincomalee, this resort is also the ideal base from which to explore this coastal region, rich in culture and tradition.
