Uga Jungle Beach Welcome to the jungle

The Resort

At the still original east coast of Sri Lanka, in the midst of extraordinary and tropical nature, lays the luxury beach resort Jungle Beach by Uga Escapes. Existing trees and natural vegetation were cleverly integrated into the design of the hotel, thus creating an ideal resort for nature-loving and peace seeking guests. The hotel is located just a few meters from the sandy beach and a lagoon close by.

Follow teak walkways and stepping stones to find your way to the rustic dining area open to the sea breezes.

Client Reviews

average rating:
Das Highlight auf unserer 14tägigen Rundreise durch Sri Lanka. Lage, Umgebung, Ausstattung und Service suchen seinesgleichen. Der wow Effekt lag zum einen an dem Bungalow sowie im Restaurant bei der Präsentation der Speisen!! Selten so freundliches und aufmerksames Personal erlebt.
Schade dass wir hier nur 2 Tage eingeplant hatten
Martin Hofbauer / Lufthansa April 2019
Dies wa mein dritter Besuch im Jungle Beach und ich hoffe, dies wird nicht der letzte sein. Der erste Eindruck bei Ankunft, müde nach der langen Fahrt, ist vielleicht nicht so berauschend, aber die Begeisterung steigert sich von Tag zu Tag . Endloser, unverbauter Strand (im Hotelbereich sehr gepflegt) geschmackvoll eingerichtete Cabins, effizientes und besonders freundliches Personal, hervorragendes Essen, eine Empfehlung für Ruhesuchende und Genießer!
Ingrid Irresberger / Austrian Airlines April 2018
