Jungle Beach is a secluded seaside resort on the eastern coast of Sri Lanka. Located alongside a 4 km stretch of unspoilt private beach, this top-end, tranquil retreat offers excellent service, a swimming pool, a restaurant, a spa and gym, and 48 contemporary villas, all set within an extensive 10 acre plot of pretty mangroves and jungle fringed by the Indian Ocean. The resort is an exclusive, relaxing hideaway designed to blend into its stunning tropical setting.
Teak walkways, water features and bridges link Jungle Beach’s communal areas. There’s a relaxing alfresco lounge and bar, plus an all-day restaurant with an a la carte menu featuring international and Sri Lankan cuisine, with an unsurprising focus on seafood. Private dining experiences, including exclusive beach barbeques, can be arranged. There’s a well-equipped gym, and a spa offering massages and beauty treatments. An inviting swimming pool sits amidst the tropical shrubs and trees.
Water-based activities include swimming, snorkelling, and jet skiing. The hotel’s east coast location promises calm seas during July and August, a period when the country’s south and west coastlines are often out of bounds due to rough waters. Other activities include nature walks, and cycling on trails around the nearby rural village of Kuchchaveli, for which bicycles can be provided. Excursions include the hot springs at Kannya, renowned for their therapeutic properties, and the dramatic clifftop temple at Koneswaram, a popular destination for Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. The historical port town of Trincomalee with its scenic, white sand beaches and water sports, is 27km away.
Accommodation comprises 48 contemporary style villas, crafted using local materials to blend in with their leafy surroundings. Each villa has a king size or twin beds and a generous ensuite bathroom, with some units boasting an additional outdoor rainfall shower. All villas have air conditioning, satellite TV, a minibar, and hot drink facilities. Wi-Fi is provided, although due to the resort’s secluded location the signal may at times be intermittent. Outside each villa is a private terrace, with either jungle or beach views. Several units have dining furniture on the terrace for alfresco eating.
Children are more than welcome at Jungle Beach. Several of the villas are grouped together with a shared private pool, and these are particularly suitable for families or larger groups.
We had the most amazing time. It exceeded all my hopes of what the trip would be. The guides, the hotels - everything was of such a wonderful quality. Thank you for organizing everything. I will absolutely recommend Tourdust and use you again.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again
