It was the best place to stay away from busy life .... calm and quite location with VIP care. My self, wife and our kid stayed on 15th May, our 7th Anniversary night and they have prepared a delicious Anniversary cake with just 4 hr prior notice. That was great.... Moreover customer care is 100%, with all the staff and need to thank specially for both managers ( sorry i forgot your good names) Highly recommend location to visit during your busy schedule and two night stay is recommend. Rooms- cottages, pool, restaurant are cleaned and well maintaining and you can get 'Tree top dinner/ breakfast ' blending with nature in special dinning area. Lovely place, nice humans. Thank you All.....wish you all the best..

We have just come home from spending 2 weeks for a wedding and honeymoon at Uga Jungle Beach and can only describe it as heaven on earth. My partner and I eloped and had a traditional Sri Lankan wedding at the hotel which was the most perfect day. The hotel arranged the most beautiful set up for us including bouquet, wedding arch, decorations, wedding cake, singers, a beautiful dinner on the beach. Gothami the office manager also arranged for us to have traditional saris for the wedding evening which was such a wonderful touch. It was completely stress free and the team couldn’t have done more for us. I have never experienced service like what we received at Uga Jungle Beach. Management, waiting staff, the chef, excursions team, bar staff, pool staff, beach staff, housekeeping- absolutely everyone we’re wonderful. The kindest people you could wish to meet, always wanting to do more for you, completely professional and so attentive. The hotel itself is phenomenal. The most beautiful place set in a jungle, with incredible wildlife, a lovely private beach and a stunning pool. They also clearly care about the environment, with their sustainability policy, clean beaches, avoidance of plastic. It was also lovely to see how much they support their community, working with local businesses for excursions. The rooms are impeccable, we stayed in a jungle cabin with an outdoor shower and private balcony and it was just stunning. The restaurant and beach bar were fantastic, every single meal we had was gorgeous, the chef Prabath even came out to talk with guests and make sure they were happy. We had a couple of evenings on the beach for a seafood BBQ with the most delicious shellfish we’ve ever had. There is so much to do at the hotel and surrounding area- whale watching, snorkelling at pigeon island, bike ride, city tours, day excursions to sigiria rock, safari, cooking classes; all of which the hotel will arrange! We were looked after so well by Reuben for the whole day, packed lunches and lots of water! I could talk forever about it, but all I can say is you have to visit! You won’t regret it, and if you are thinking of eloping there is no where better to do it! We were so well looked after. Thank you Uga Jungle Beach for the most special experience. We can’t wait to come back! Lucy and Ant

This April, my boyfriend and I had the best vacation of our lives. The choice of this hotel was not easy, we doubted for a long time which part of the island it was better to go to, since it is now the transitional season in Sri Lanka. As a result, we decided to go to the east coast to the hotel Jungle Beach by Uga Escapes. And it was the best solution! The hotel is simply incredible!It has a huge picturesque territory. You truly live in the jungle in complete unity with nature. A small pond with water turtles was created near the restaurant (we constantly watched them during the meal). On the way to the sea, you can meet small lizards. There are a lot of crabs on the beach, and also small deer (yes, you read right, we were also very surprised). The beach of the hotel impresses with its views and cleanliness. The sea is very calm and transparent. The sand is soft, the entrance to the water is ideal. The sea has a comfortable depth, you do not need to walk in shallow water for a long time. Very comfortable sun loungers and umbrellas. Towels are immediately on the sun loungers, you do not need to go anywhere for them. There is always a lifeguard on duty. There is a bar on the beach with food and drinks, the quality of which is always on top. You do not need to carry money with you, the bill is simply recorded to your room number. All rooms in the hotel are villas. We lived in the Lagoon Cabin. This is a spacious room on the second floor of the villa with high ceilings, a huge bathroom, a huge bed and a balcony with a view of the lake with crocodiles (and sometimes a local family of monkeys comes to it). The room is equipped with air conditioning and a fan. Room cleaning twice a day, it is possible to order food and drinks in the room. Near the restaurant there is a beautiful swimming pool, shrouded in jungle. It looks very harmonious in the concept of such a hotel. The pool is constantly cleaned, there has always been a good man Bandara near it. It was very pleasant for us to talk to him. Good luck to Bandara in everything. Now about the restaurant. Our accommodation included breakfast and dinner, we ordered lunch ourselves (and then not always, since breakfast is very voluminous). There is no buffet in the restaurant, instead guests are given a menu with a large list of dishes for different tastes (meat, fish, vegetables, vegetarian dishes, etc.). During our entire stay, the menu has never been repeated. There is always something of European cuisine, seafood dishes, as well as local dishes to choose from. Each dish is a culinary miracle. All of them were very tasty and incredibly beautiful from a visual point of view. Many thanks to the chef of the restaurant (Megachef - we love you!). For an additional fee, there is an opportunity to have dinner by the sea, surrounded by romantic lighting, ocean noise and excellent service. The main dish here is a variety of seafood, meat and vegetables cooked near you on the grill. You can take as much as you want. Let's move on to the hotel service. In all the years of our travels, these people were the best we have ever met. Everyone from the cleaners in the rooms to the hotel management was incredibly friendly, helpful and kind to us. We had several situations when we needed help and it came immediately. For example, we ran out of sunscreen, and it was impossible to buy it nearby (since the hotel is located in a secluded place away from the city - this is another huge plus of the location). We asked the reception where we could buy it, and they told us to just relax and an hour later they brought the cream directly to the room. And they also gave themselves an Aloe leaf to soothe the skin after sunburn. Separately, I would like to mention a wonderful employee of the restaurant - Jihan Nadeeka. From the first day of rest, he took care of us as his best friends! He always asked us how we were feeling, if we liked everything and made us little surprises every day. He is very experienced and professional! For us, he is the ideal employee of the restaurant business. We wish Jihan good luck in everything and career growth! We were amazed at how much the hotel cares about nature. In the rooms you will not find plastic bags, water is provided in large beautiful glass bottles. All this is done to reduce the impact of plastic on the environment. At the entrance to the beach there is a large sign telling what the hotel is doing to reduce the impact of garbage on the coast, the sea and nature. You will also not find plastic tubes in drinks or anything else that negatively affects the surrounding environment. During our entire vacation, we could not find a single negative moment. I have never encountered such a thing. Many thanks to the entire staff of the hotel for our emotions and a superbly organized vacation! We wish the hotel prosperity, wonderful guests and success in everything! We will definitely be back! With love, friends from Russia, Ulyana and Alexey

Great place, people and experience. It was such a privilege and joy to stay here. We stayed in the beach chateau (15 - which is the southern most villa) and it was top notch. Real privacy with access right onto the beach, outdoor private shower, big comfy as beds and loads of helpful staff. Nothing was at fault and really recommend it for a nice stay 30mins north from Trinco. Would recommend the beach bbq as well as we did a private dinner and they really got around a proposal as well. Thanks so much everyone from Uga Jungle, we will be back.
