As a Sri Lankan, this would be one of the best resorts that I have visited by far. Though there are many upcoming resorts as well as ones which are currently operational, this would be the best by far according to my many visits to the North East of Sri Lanka.
As sunny as the weather was the sea was pretty clear and also included a clean beach. You wouldn't be able to spot the sea at first as the name says as the Jungle covers the Beach. As soon as you step out, you would have a magnificent view. Staff is friendly, rooms are of really good standards with Modern Tropical Conceptually designed interiors. The Chalets me and my family stayed were one of a kind! The food, if you do not order of course is on a fixed or set menu. If you would like to order you may go ahead. I had the opportunity in talking to the chef in person as he was a very friendly guy. A bit on the pricey side I would say as a local, but if you are a foreigner I'm sure the food would please you as you may not get such a great deal elsewhere. A lovely pool sits aside covered by greenery, which could be over looked from the sized dining area and the lounge. This gives you the sense of pure serenity.
All in all, if you are on the look out for a sandy beach, good food, comfortable stay with the idea of proper relaxation, this is the place to be!
