‘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.’

This hotel was very good we had a great stay and the workers are very kind. Especially Mrs. teena and Mrs. Prinin(suba), Mr. Mayuran and Mr. Roshan. They made us stay very comfortable. Also the poolguy with the white clothes on, who brought us everyday new towels. His smile gives you good energy every morning. This hotel is for sure the best stay we had in Srilanka in one month time.

This place was amazing. The food served there was tasted good, there was a whole jacuzzi in our room that was built so nicely. We went canoeing in the lake which was incredibly nice. Also, the customer service was amazing.

We came to Sri Lanka in one of the saddest times for the country; however, from the moment we started thinking about booking with Amaranthe Bay for a long stay, the staff and specifically Mr. Mayuran did not hesitate to make our stay extra special, comfortable, safe and feeling like home. He went out of his way to provide us with everything we needed during our stay. Staying at Amaranthe really turned our vacation around. The hotel is beautiful, the staff are kind and the rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. We were even offered a beautiful 2 hour Kayak ride by Mr. Mayuran around the Trincomalee lake at sunset. This was really a special and unique experience. If you are ever in Trincomalee, do not hesitate to stay at Amaranthe Bay; you will really feel like you’re at home away from home. Highly recommended.

A very lovely review to read, Nourhan! ...especially when the title of the review is headlined as being “One of the best hotel experiences…” You honor us, thank you! Delighted you enjoyed your stay in our Junior Suites with their elevated views of the river. You were a lovely and very charming couple with great heart and a generosity for all of our team who adored you, the staff loved having you stay with us! We were touched that you have such kind words to say about our staff Mayuran who, with the rest of his team, make up all the little differences that add up during your stay. We are so delighted to hear that the canoe trip organized by Mayuran along the mangroves was memorable and fun. We look forward to hosting you again by our little lagoon, thank you for writing us! With kindest regards and thanks from Amaranthé Bay team

Amaranthe Bay resort and spa absolutely changed the course of our entire Sri Lanka trip. Even though the country is going through some tough times, Mr. Mayuran and Mr. Priwin went out of his way to absolutely make us feel welcome and very well taken care of. Even before we arrived in Trincomalee, Mr. Mayuran made sure that we arrive safely and that EVERYTHING from the biggest to the smallest detail we need is taken care of; even things that are not within the hotel vicinity (ex. Car transfer, motorcycle, etc. ) The hotel itself is LUX and beautiful and comfortable with so many positive vibes. Truly makes you feel like you’re on an island vacation. Thank you to the entire Amaranthe Bay resort team for a wonderful stay.

We stayed at the Amaranthé Bay Resort and Spa for four nights in July 2022. This resort’s was hospitality and service was the best we received in Sri Lanka. The view of the bay is beautiful. The kids really enjoyed the pool. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The breakfast was superb and they accommodate to any dietary requirements. The dinner was wonderful. They served us freshly caught jumbo prawns grilled and it was amazing! We had crab curry which was done to perfection. The kids had penne pasta which was in par with any good Italian restaurant. The staff at Amaranthé Bay Restaurant was always very attentive to our needs. My wife had picked up fresh vegetables and fruits from the local market. The chef was happy to make it for us for dinner. We took a 5 minute stroll to the beautiful beach where we swam in the warm ocean waters. Honesty, not being right on the beach was a plus for us as the beaches can get very crowded in the busy season. The resort even has a boat which will gladly take you to the beach. We give Amaranthé Bay Resort and Spa a 5 out of 5 review! It’s a fantastic resort to stay in, perhaps the best resort in the Trincomalee! Stay here and you will not be disappointed!!

We love reading reviews like this. Full of thoughtful sentiment and very carefully written because our hotel and our amazing team was able to find your smile, get you to laugh and help you forget about the outside world for a few days :) We also feel like we always thanking our TripAdvisor writers here for their always-pleased feedback on our food. For more than anything this makes us grin with satisfaction. As well, you can count upon the super-culinary powers of Chef Dhinuka and his magical staff to create a myriad of tasty dishes while lounging about near the pool and taking in those beautiful, much-deserved, golden rays of sunlight. Thank you, Latif Muhaimeen, for taking your time to write this charming letter to us, and sharing it with the online community here at Trip Advisor. We’d love to see you again and promise to have those pot holes fixed and paved for the next time you’re here! All the best, and with sincere gratitude from Amaranthé Bay team

We really enjoyed our stay at the Amaranthé Bay resort & Spa. Beautiful rooms with an amazing view of the lagoon, as well as a nice pool to relax! The staff (Priwin, Mayuran, everyone at the resaurant & bar and especially the guy making our cocktails!!) was amazing, really kind and helpful 👌. The location is amazing, close to the beaches and a lot of nice local restaurants nearby. We certainly recommend to stay here!! - Young couple from Belgium

I spent 2 weeks at the Amaranthe Resort for a work trip. Excellent place to stay! The staff was awesome!! The Manager, Mr Sri was always around making sure we were pleased. Roshan the night desk officer was always helpful! He emailed me personally when I was having trouble with website reservations. Shalini and Mayuran, worked the desk also greeted us with a smile and assistance when needed! In the restaurant, Tina and Chathuranga were the best! We had early work days so they came in early to make sure we had breakfast and both were always there for dinner to greet us and make sure our order was correct! Excellent service from everyone! I am already hoping to bring my wife back to SriLanka and for sure we will stay at the Amaranthe Resort!!
