Travelers' Choice
‘Amaranthe Bay’ sits poised at the edge of the slow meandering Pillaikulam Aru, a sentinel of luxury in a stunning landscape of calming sunrises and psychedelic sunsets, caressed by the breezes that waft across the still waters of the river, serenaded by birdcall and the swishing of oars, bathed in a glow that only paradise can offer you. This is ‘Amaranthe Bay.’

■Visit on (08/08/2020)■ This is a fantastic hotel which you get unmatched customer care. A newly built hotel. Almost all staff members are from Trincomalee area and management wants to give opportunity for locals, which I really appreciate. We was in a Suite which is very spacious, clean and equipped with all new facilities. In room Jacuzzi is the most attractive.Chef DON is a great.Deck erected close to the lagoon was amazing to have your dinner. So many positives.. highly recommend, must be the best in Trincomalee......

Well, this hotel seems like it really would have been a gem in its heyday! The private jacuzzi in the room with the view of the lagoon was the definite highlight of the accommodation. And the manager and staff were extremely warm and friendly, going out of their way to chat with us and make sure we felt comfortable each time they saw us. For being such a big place, we certainly felt like the service was personalized! :) Compared to newer resorts in Sri Lanka, though, Amaranthe Bay felt decidedly... older and generic? Sort of like the vibe you'd get at a Holiday Inn, really. The food was decent, but nothing memorable. The room was decent, but nothing memorable. The grounds were decent, but nothing memorable. It would be a fine choice if you had lots of plans for the day and didn't intend on making the resort the highlight of your trip, but I've gotten so used to resorts being the star of the show here in Sri Lanka, that this experience was honestly a bit of a let down. Still, I would recommend Amaranthe Bay if you are already planning a trip to Trinco, as the next best option - the Cinnamon Blu - paled in comparison to Amaranthe (we went there for lunch to visit friends, and were SO happy with our decision to stay at Amaranthe!). The staff alone make it a worthwhile stop! However, I would not recommend driving the 7 hours from Colombo JUST for this resort as we did, as you will certainly realize you could have had a very similar experience at most any other major hotel, and saved yourself the 14 hour commute!

We stayed here on a weekend with our kids. The staff took a great effort to make our stay memorable, offering a lovely birthday surprise as well. Food was brilliant. They maintain a proper health and safety procedures specially during this time. Gorgeous pool and our kids enjoyed it so much. Although we planned to visit nearby attractions we finally stayed most of our trip at the hotel enjoying the garden, river and the jacuzzi... the room was well maintained. Special thank to Mr Denver for his extraordinary hospitality.. Highly recommend.

Amaranthe Bay From the initial call to make the reservation till the time we left, the whole experience was pleasant. The staff was cheerful, helpful and extremely accommodating. We were travelling with our 2 and a half year old daughter and the Chef, Dinuka, made it a point before every meal to check if he could make anything special for her to eat. Two other staff members, Lashan and Inam who served us were ever smiling and friendly. The hotel in itself is beautiful. We had dinner on an outdoor deck overlooking the lagoon and it was a lovely experience. The food too was delicious and well made. The rooms well appointed and luxurious. Tourism is at an all time low these days due to the COVID situation, nevertheless everyone at the hotel were cheerful and welcoming.
