Boutique eco-escapism, perfect for the curious and adventurous traveller…
Uga Jungle Beach Resort is located 11 miles north of the port of Trincomalee. A Robinson Crusoe hide and chic rustic retreat, with thatched roofed cabins sandwiched between the lagoon and the Indian Ocean.
6 hours drive across the island from Colombo. There are domestic Cinnamon Air flights from Colombo to the domestic airport. After that, it is a short drive to the resort.
Uga Jungle Beach Resort has 48 cabins, with a choice of Lagoon View, Jungle View or Beach.
All are deliberately rustic. As a result, they perfectly capture the essential simplicity of the resort.
The Lagoon View offers the lowest price.
The Jungle Cabins are good for those who want to be close to nature.
Lastly, the Beach Cabins have direct access to the superb stretch of sand directly in front of the resort.
Restaurant plus numerous private dining option
Yoga and cooking classes
Whale and dolphin watching tours
Bicycles for exploring the extensive grounds including a nature trail
Pidgeon Island Marine National Park is known for its excellent snorkelling and is easily accessible
Kokkilai Bird Sanctuary is also close by, as is the busy port city of Trincomalee, with its historic and spiritual importance
The luxury of the Uga Jungle Beach Resort comes in the deliberate simplicity.
Uga Jungle is comfortable, wonderfully natural, relaxed and easy going. Jungle Beach will not appeal to everyone, but that is also part of the attraction.
This side of Sri Lanka is generally at its best from March to October. The winter months can see monsoon rains and facilities can be affected.
Chic is delighted to be a partner with Uga Escapes. One of the fastest-growing – and certainly the most innovative – of the small luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. Currently, just five luxurious, totally unique and delightful properties. You have Ulagalla in the Cultural Triangle. Uga Bay in Passikudah, Uga Chena Huts way down south in Yala National Park. Finally, in Colombo, there is The Residence.
All of our touring arrangements are based on a private basis. Each tour can be individually tailored to suit your personal requirements. We would suggest The Uga Jungle Beach Resort as a summer beach retreat, but also as part of a tour of the Cultural Triangle. All can be easily combined.

Sri Lanka is shaped like a tropical teardrop, fantastic scenic and cultural variety. It is exotic, with wonderful history and culture, eco-adventures and wildlife viewing, and wide smiles. In recent years the quality of accommodation has improved significantly, with many boutique heritage hotels and wonderfully luxurious resorts. The image of the island has moved more upscale – as have the prices – but we now rate it as one of the most exciting tropical destinations.
The beaches are good, but for us the real joy of the island is to tour around, staying in the very special boutique hotels and then end in a resort for a few days. The flying time from UK is 12 hours.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
