Jungle Beach Resort
Located just thirty minutes from the historic city of Trincomalee, Jungle Beach Resort allows its guests to simultaneously experience lush jungle and pristine beach in a harmonious blend of Sri Lanka’s most famous attributes. Nestled between the shimmering expanse of the Indian Ocean and a lagoon populated by rare bird species, Jungle Beach Resort is surrounded by ten acres of untouched wilderness. Its long stretches of private beach are perfect for all manner of activities, including snorkelling, fishing, kayaking and more; whilst guided excursions to the inland sights of Trincomalee and the surrounding area add an extra dimension to a stay at this idyllic beach retreat. Jungle Beach Resort is particularly popular with nature-lovers, and is an excellent place to encounter Sri Lanka’s famous flora and fauna. It's not for nothing that Jungle Beach Resort was named ‘best Indian Ocean resort’ by World Luxury Hotel magazine.
