We came to Jungle Beach after first having looked at the Niaveli Beach Hotel, which were both being offered for the same price, and the two aren't even in the same league. We meant to stay two nights and it ended up being four. Jungle Beach is an exceptionally well designed resort, with attentive staff, beautiful grounds and a simply incredible beach which feels secluded. The pool/bar/restaurant area is beautiful, with Bunny (a tame hand reared deer) often joining you. The green chilli cocktail is a must.

We spent 3 nights in Jungle Beach in one of the lagoon view cabins. The cabin itself was gorgeous, very spacious with a large comfy bed and lovely ensuite, without doubt the best room we stayed in throughout our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. The lagoon view was the only let down, go for the beach view if available. The food at the resort was mixed, breakfast was excellent with lots of options/courses. The lunch/dinner menu wasn't what it ought to be though. For a beach resort there should be a lot more seafood on the menu, this was probably the biggest disappointment. Of the meals we did order we found the tuna steak and the ravioli to be exceptionally good, so much so that we ordered these dishes 3 times. The other dishes we tried were pretty average, the grilled swordfish sandwich and quesadilla spring to mind.

The beach the resort sits on is very nice, you can walk for miles along the beach without bumping in to anyone. The water was also flat calm at this time of year so we were able to enjoy daily swims in the sea. The resort pool is very nice also and is in a lovely setting.

The staff were very friendly and helpful although at times they are a bit disorganised in the restaurant. Overall I would highly recommend staying here and believe it is well worth it's 5 star rating on TripAdvisor.

We stayed for three nights at Jungle Beach in a beach chalet. We were travelling with our 18 month old daughter. From the minute we arrived to the time of our departure we were made to feel very special. The location is spectacular with a beautiful clean beach and lush jungle surrounds. The rooms are very well appointed with a beautiful outdoor shower. They also have a resident deer called Bunny who is absolutely gorgeous and in my opinion should become the resorts official mascot. Whilst all the staff were outstanding, Rohana, the restaurant and bar executive, made our stay unforgettable. He is an asset to the Jungle Beach team and can not do enough to assist guests with anything they may require. Rohana even suggested that rather than tipping him we tip his hardworking staff. This is in my view a trait of an outstanding manager and someone who is destined for higher management roles. I also need to mention Miss Chandani who not only takes wonderful care of Bunny but also took great care of our daughter which gave us an opportunity to have some lovely dinners. It was the experience of a lifetime and we hope we can come back soon and meet lots of baby Bunnys! Thanks again to all at Jungle Beach.

Room Tip: Beach Chalets are well worth the extra money. You can hear the ocean from your balcony.

Jungle Beach has a wonderful setting and passionate staff. The chalets are spacious and great outdoor shower ! The food has to be mentioned as outstanding both in taste and presentation and service. The hotel is run with passion and the hotel staff eager to perform.
