Situated right on the water’s edge, Uga Jungle Beach lives up to its name. With the Indian Ocean mere steps away, this resort is nestled among dense vegetation, while the wooden beams and thatched rooftops create the feel of a luxury tree house. A winding swimming pool is tucked among the trees and sheltered sun loungers line the coast, inviting you to succumb and unwind.
Whether you’re interested in culture, history or wildlife, Jungle Beach has an activity to suit you. An early-morning whale-watching trip might yield sightings of blue or sperm whales, as well as plenty of dolphins. Snorkellers and divers can discover the underwater world of Pigeon Island Marine National Park, which is home to 300 species of coral fish, rays and sharks. Meanwhile, a hike to the Thiriyai Temple will reward you with 360-degree views of the surrounding area.
This tropical haven has plenty of opportunities to relax and recharge during your stay. The tranquil spa boasts a menu of therapies including Swedish massages, thirst-quenching body treatments and aromatherapy facials. You can also hire bikes and go cycling through the jungle – where you might spot monkeys and crocodiles – and join in with Sri Lankan cookery classes and family-friendly kite-making workshops.
Expect dishes like rice, curry and fresh seafood platters, all served with a Sri Lankan twist. The dining room is covered by a thatched roof and the ocean breeze is the perfect dinner accompaniment.
Freshly sourced ingredients and exotic flavours make up the meals served to you on the beach, where a roaring bonfire and torches lighting the way.
The cabins at Jungle Beach are just steps from the beach and hidden among the surrounding trees and rocky outcrops. The cabins’ sophisticated dark wood accents correspond with crisp decor and contemporary furnishings. And, because each one is naturally sheltered, you’ll feel secluded without being too far from the beach.
