‘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.’

Thanks for this encouraging review, Dinushi, your feedback is immensely useful. When I conveyed your appreciation to Anne, team & the boatman, they were extremely happy and has always gone above and beyond to ensure our guest’s absolute happiness. We have to be vigilant, when cows wading across the river in the evening as they sometime creep in to our premises and eat our garden too :). Your short stay with us made you to visit the river mouth only by boat. On your return again, I will arrange you a free boat ride to see the sunset through the mangroves which just the opposite direction of the river mouth. We earnestly look forward to your next visit to Amaranthe Bay, thank you so much for writing us! Best Regards. Leslie, Anne and the Team

Sheron at the reception was amazing. After our first night, she asked how we had slept and when I mentioned to her that I couldn’t sleep because of a dog barking constantly, she told me that she would attend to it and she did. The following night the dog was elsewhere on the

Happy you loved your stay with us, Dani U, and thank you for this great review! We love getting compliments on the luxury bedding and mattresses, it’s always one of the first things guests love to chat us up about in the morning after their first night with us. I’m sorry that you could not have a peaceful sleep due to the bark of dog on the first night. If I have to point out about this dog; it was brought by a guest during last year with broken hip and we took care, treated and now it could walk. Also the guest wrote an article about this dog on the Facebook. I will show your comment to Sheron and the SPA staff including Prakash (SPA Manager) and I am sure that they will be thrilled. Thanks for this outstanding review! So pleased that you enjoyed your new Junior Suite rooms. Thank you for taking your time to write us, please come visit us again! All the best. Leslie, Anne and the Team

Private hire van but it’ll cost you upwards of 20k usually. Not a very cost effective way of traveling but if money is no issue then go for it! :-) I go frequently to Trinco - night ‘luxury’ bus leaves at 10 and 11pm from Colombo central and arrives 4am ish. 1200 rupees per person. Contact ‘Superline’ bus travels. It’s a coach and pretty comfortable.

Hi - Of course our hotel is facing to the lagoon, but the beach is just 10 minutes walking distance also we provide free shuttle service to the beach 3 times in every day. Thank you

May is usually the start of Southwestern monsoon so Trinco should be okay. Beach is about 200m away but the immediately near beach is inside the property of adjacent hotel Trinco Blu. You can use it after informing the security but it is usually crowded. Hotel arranges lagoon rides as well as ocean activities depending on the weather. Better to call them ahead and enquire about activities like snorkeling. There are a lot of places of interest around Trincomalee so the best thing would be to look in Tripadvisor on suggestions, pick out what you'd like, and ask the hotel whether things could be arranged within the duration of your stay. That being said, enjoy the beaches and seafood as much as you can.

The North-eastern monsoon will be active in November but it's difficult to predict the amount of rain since the weather patterns are not very reliable. But if monsoon is active with rough seas activities like snorkeling at pigeon island would be affected.

Weather during July and August is the best! The rest of the months can be a bit dodgy, on and off
