Jungle Beach Resort by Uga Escapes

Escape amongst the trees

Jungle Beach Resort by Uga Escapes is, as the name suggests, a beachfront resort nestled within virtually untouched jungle on Sri Lanka's east coast. It offers an intimate boutique experience, having only one restaurant serving stunning local cuisine, and an assortment of cabins scattered between trees and sandy shores; each fitting into their natural setting with thatched roofs and a contemporary eco style. Relax on a lounger by the main pool, sipping cocktails in the sun, or discover your inner adrenaline junkie with jet skiing on the clear blue sea. A tranquil spa is there to discover too, providing a wealth of opportunity to relax and find your inner glow.

Beach cabin paradise

We stayed in the king beach cabin which was paradise, the jungle surroundings make is completely private and only footsteps walk from the ocean. Jagath and the whole team took amazing care of us ensuring we had a wonderful stay. The perfect place to escape and relax on a beautiful beach!

Well spent holiday

Colombo, Sri Lanka

Really relaxing experience by the sea. Our room was a cabin cluster with a private pool, it's big, comfortable, very clean thanks to Rajeev and Irsath who was very kind and given us a surprise room deco on our anniversary. The breakfast and dinner buffets were varied and filled with local flavours. Great location and friendly, helpful staff. Special thanks to Yasanka who was very supportive from the day of reservation, he attended to each and every need of us. Made our anniversary gateaway even more special 😊
