Uga Jungle Beach Resort

Eastern Province

The northeast coast of Sri Lanka is home to Jungle Beach, a luxury boutique retreat set on a gorgeous ten-acre spot set between the ocean and a lagoon. Here you can experience the raw beauty of nature within the charming and eco-friendly surroundings of a tropical jungle oasis.

48 eco-friendly thatched-roof villas have been elegantly designed with contemporary interiors and impressive views of the ocean or the lagoon. Crafted from indigenous materials, the villas are spacious and feature private decks and luxurious amenities. Each villa is tucked deeply within jungle foliage to provide the utmost privacy and seclusion.

Dining at Jungle Beach is pure pleasure. The open-air restaurant features Sri Lankan cuisine as well as international dishes, with seafood the specialty. The hotel will arrange private dining experiences such as a beach picnic under the stars or dinner in a secluded jungle setting.

Walk down to the beach, do some yoga on the sand, or be pampered in the spa. There is also a gym and yoga studio offering specially designed classes for kids or mothers-to-be. For adventure seekers, there’s an array of water sports including jet-skiing, fishing, island hopping, and kayaking.

Jungle Beach is one of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

Why we recommend Uga Jungle Beach Resort

Jungle Beach Resort in Sri Lanka is the ultimate in seclusion. Here you can sleep in a jungle-wrapped cabin and step out onto a wild sweep of beach that’s almost entirely deserted. Accommodation varies between standard resort-style lagoon-view rooms to cabins – we recommend the cabins which feature all modern amenities alongside outdoor showers and private terraces. No rooms interconnect but the cluster of three cabins sharing a pool would work for families with older children or an extended group.
