Overnight: Jungle Beach Hotel
After breakfast proceed to Trincomalee and check in at your hotel. Explore the city of Trincomalee. Little visited in recent years, the atmospheric city of Trincomalee is set amongst miles of golden-sand beaches, where visitors are few and a warm welcome is assured. Located on one of the world's best natural harbors, the city was disputed by Dutch, Portuguese and British powers, and was a headquarters for the Allied forces in World War II. Now it is one of Sri Lanka's most pristine tourist destinations, with Buddhist and Hindu Temples set alongside churches and mosques. In the agricultural hinterland rice is the major crop while around the coast undeveloped, palm-fringed beaches are perfect for swimming and scuba diving from May to October. Your dinner tonight will be simply incredible and very memorable. Set on a private beach your butler will stand to the side and barbecue fresh seafood, including lobster, crabs, and tuna, as a bonfire casts a golden glow over your table. This four course meal is truly a treat.
About Jungle Beach Resort
Offering the best of land and sea, this luxury Sri Lanka beach resort has artfully incorporated existing trees and natural plant life into the hotel's design, making you feel like you're in a luxurious tree house. Three choices of rooms are available at our truly unique Trincomalee hotel, facing the beach, the lagoon or fully immersed in the jungle, where you can still hear the lapping of the waves mixed with the songs of birds. Follow teak walkways and stepping stones to find your way to the rustic dining area open to the sea breezes. Cross the bridge over the lotus pond to the bar, and then onto the floating platform for lounge chairs by the pool, where the waterfall heightens the sense that you have escaped into a tropical jungle oasis.
