Jungle cabin

Back-to-nature escapism at its finest - a collection of thatched cabins set between the beach and the jungle on Sri Lanka's east coast, including breakfast, daily cocktail, a massage and more

A collection of thatched villas and cabins peeping out of tropical foliage near the rural village of Kuchchaveli, the remote Jungle Beach by Uga Escapes is the epitome of castaway chic. Shrouded by nature and steps from footprint-free golden sands, this eco retreat might be considered a back-to-basics experience, but the subtle five-star comforts are anything but.

Around 30 minutes from the former Dutch colony of Trincomalee, Jungle Beach by Uga Escapes offers unrivalled privacy - ideal for seclusion-seeking couples. Disappear into Uga Spa for holistic healing in the form of ancient Ayurveda, cross the bridge over the lotus pond for sundowners by the meandering swimming pool; and for dinner, explore authentic Sri Lankan cuisine in where other than a treehouse-style restaurant with ambient lantern lighting.

For those who like their hideaways harmoniously woven into the landscape (the reception even has trees growing through it), this is as enchanting as it gets. Little wonder the resort scooped fourth place in the ‘Top 25 Hotels in Sri Lanka’ category of the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards.

We like

  • The green-tiled, lagoon-style swimming pool, shaded by overhanging branches
  • Stray driftwood on the private beach, totally free from crowds
  • The low-rise architecture and thatched roofs, sensitive to the natural setting
