“Beautiful place to relax”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We really enjoyed our time at Jungle Beach. Our room was lovely, and the whole resort was beautiful. The beach is totally unspoilt, and always very quiet. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. The food was exceptional! All in all, a lovely place to relax in a little bit of luxury!

Went to jungle beach, and had possibly the most pleasant stay in my holiday. Exceptionally good and attentive service, fantastic rooms and settings - especially the cluster suite.

Very attentive and caring staff. Please keep up the good service. We will definitely be back!

We are a family of 6 and shared one bungalow - a little squashy but ok with young children. There are no interconnected rooms or bungalows so that is a downside for families. Everything else is fantastic. Great food and really helpful staff. The kids loved feeding the 3 tame spotted deers that visited each day.

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.

We went to the hotel in end of June 2013. We stayed in beach view room and in the morning we saw a nice sunrise and it is a marvelous view.... 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.
