Jungle Beach by Uga Escapes

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had a wonderful 3 days stay at Jungle Beach to celebrate our anniversary. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after by attentive and friendly staff, who you could see took pleasure in their work and did everything to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. They even organized special private dining by the pool and second day on the tree house to celebrate our anniversary!

The resort is beautifully located between the jungle and the beach far away from any hustle and bustle. There is no noise, no traffic, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquility. The design is awesome and the grounds are kept immaculately clean. Simply heaven!

We stayed in a Lagoon view cabin; the cabins are very big with huge bathrooms with bath tubs, rain showers. They feature all amenities one may possibly need. The lagoon cabins have beautiful balconies with sun loungers and dining facilities. One thing about the lagoon view: the lagoon is across the road and the road is pretty much empty all day and hardly saw or heard any vehicles. That was a bit disappointing at first, but it’s we never used our balcony apart from one late night and didn't even notice there was a road. We even managed to pick up some wifi, despite the remoteness of the location. Most of the time you have the beach to yourself. The beach is also immaculate. There is no litter as seen very often on other paradise beaches. The water is warm and shallow, so safe for swimming. There are umbrella’s and sun loungers and staff comes to ask you if you want a drink or anything else. The food was out of this world. The breakfast is a feast, both to the eyes and the mouth. Lunches and Dinners were sumptuous and tasty. We loved the various breads with the chutney’s and could not stop eating. Compliments to chef Vichalya! Best thing about Jungle Beach however is the staff. They give you the impression that they really like you and they really care about your wellbeing. How often do you find that in a boutique hotel? We were looked after very well by welcoming and friendly staff. They were never intrusive, just providing excellent service and attention to detail. Thank you Bandara and Dilshan for making our stay so special! We would not hesitate to go back!!!!

We stayed at Jungle Beach in June. What a treat. It is a wonderfully run, 5 star resort, that exceeded our expectations.
We stayed in a beach chalet which was very private, and easy access to the beach. Although the resort was sitting at 75% capacity, we were mostly the only people on the beach. There is nothing else along the beach, so it was such a lovely quiet experience. The pool was also spectacular.
The rooms were fantastic, particularly the outdoor shower. The staff were amazing, remembering our preferences, talking about our country, their culture and just being generally engaging. Service was of a high standard across Sri Lanka but this was definitely the best we came across.
The drinks/cocktails were great and the food was also excellent. The breakfast tray every morning serves up so much food it is ridiculous. Definitely not the place to go to detox!
I had a lesson with the yoga master who was very entertaining and encouraging. It was a shame I visited him on the last day as I would have gone every day if I had known!
Our driver took us to Nilaveli for half a day to go snorkelling which was nice to mix it up - but wear a rash shirt, we got very burnt.
Overall, if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing stay this is the spot. There is nothing to do but eat, swim, drink, relax amongst the luxury and the jungle.

The staff,service and rooms are in fist class.We went jet ski rides and it is the first time I ride in the beach...... you also can get that experience when you stay their but not for a high price....
In my comment Jungle beach is one of the best hotel in Sri Lanka........

I spent 2 nights during April New Year period ( Sinhala / Hindu New Year). Good relaxing place midst of jungle. We were occupying lagoon chalet and was spacious and comfortable. Good room service too.
Hotel had planned the New Year auspicious ceremony and breakfast was all reflecting new year and continental food. However, hotel daily newsletter did not mention about the festivity arrangements.
I recommend this property for honeymooners and families.
Diving, snorkeling activities are not available here. This is available after 5 km from the hotel and hotel can assist.
Note: Uga is very strict on cancellation charges. Please be sure before you book their properties.

Room Tip: Beach chalet. Jungle Beach also have rooms with plunge pool ideal for families.

We came as a group of 4 rooms took all 3 jungle cluster rooms and a beach room. All 3 rooms over looking the private pool and it's been segregated as a private area for our group.. This is an awesome concept as we feel as if its like a village of our own people living adjacent to each other with the luxury at its best, never seen a concept like this before anywhere in srilanka and thumps up to UGA for pioneering it..

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful and they have the attitude of never say no!

The food has no complains and chef vichalya, is an ambitious chef and the presentation of food alone will fill your bellies.

The only complain is that the chauffeur/ drivers quarters are in a far off distance and our drivers always has to travel in and out in public transport to there quarters which is a great inconvenience to the guests as if we are to go out of the hotel have to wait for a long while till the drivers come to the hotel due to the distance problem. Anyway we were informed by the hotel manager that new quarters are under construction in the hotel premises and very soon this problem will be adhered to.

The feeling is wonderful in the nights, it feels as if you are in the thick jungle, but fear free! I'm sure we will come again when ever we get a holiday.

I advise to take the jungle cluster rooms for any family/group who is having a requirement of 3 or more rooms, it's an amazing experience!

Fantastic setting in the jungle, gorgeous beach and pool, it was absolutely perfect for us wanting a low key, relaxing break. The hotel has an amazing design that fits in the natural surroundings. Service was impeccable with friendly staff, good food and whilst prices were top end for Sri Lanka they were still very reasonable by Western standards.
