Trinco Blu by Cinnamon
Trincomalee Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"The staff were very attentive, friendly and efficient. We were two friends having a short break and enjoyed the relaxing time we had there. The sea eagles were a sight to see when the fish were being hauled in. Whilst there was a bit of a swell to the waves the sea was basically safe for swimming for those able to do so. The food was very good and with the option of eating at The Crab restaurant on the same site there was a range of food styles to choose from. We flew to Trincomalee airport which is not that far from the hotel however the transport was expensive at Rs4,000/= it is best to use a three-wheeler (having first agreed the price) rather than have a van or car, Rs800/= is a good price to pay currently. The three wheeler we used had probably the most honest driver I have experienced in my six years in Sri Lanka."

Amaranthe Bay Resort & Spa
Trincomalee Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"Had a good stay, location is great on the lagoon, not far from a good beach and a side road with lots of restaurants and bars. Room was very good, we had a junior suite, but think there are better value options in Sri Lanka (although not in Trinco, hence why we stayed here). Overall would recommend if you have the cash"

Anilana Nilaveli Resort
Nilaveli Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"We have just returned from Sri Lanka where we travelled around a bit and I had looked for somewhere that I thought would be relaxing with a bit of style for the final days. Anilani Nilaveli Resort was the perfect choice. The staff were wonderful, they could not do more to make our stay perfect. As it is right at the start of the season, the hotel was very quiet which meant that the breakfast and dinner buffets were usually not available, but the staff made sure that we still had plenty of choice and were very happy with everything. The hotel is very beautiful and if you are looking for a tranquil get away right on the beach, this is perfect. We were feeling very lazy so mainly read by the pool, went swimming in the sea, did some jet skiing and a fantastic snorkelling trip to Pigeon Island. I would not hesitate to return again and was sad to leave it behind. The food was very high quality, the rooms were large and beautifully designed. "

Nilaveli Sand Life
Trincomalee Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"Nilaveli Sand Life is one of Sri Lankas best kept secrets and was our favorite place during our travels. A simple beach hut right on the beach, a hammock, the sound of the waves this place couldn't have been more perfect. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful - breakfast every morning was great - and they helped arrange snorkeling to Pigeon Island (set price) from out the front of the guest house. Quite, beautiful and stunning this place is a treasure. "

Jkab Beach Resort
Trincomalee Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"This is a very nice hotel right next to the beach. All amenities to have a comfortable stay is available. Very good view from 01st and 2nd rooms. Best rooms are located at the second floor but know that there is no elevator. Beds are comfy. Good Quality Linen. Good Housekeeping. Very friendly and helpful staff at all areas. Child friendly facilities. Excellent service at all areas. Delicious food, specially seafood at reasonable prices. Nice beach. Very close to the city and major attractions of Trincomalee. Secured parking within the hotel premises. Large ground, well maintained green and a cricket pitch. Swimming pool is nicely located in shades. Beautiful landscaping. Greenery everywhere. Only downside is that rooms are bit smaller but not to the extend of creating any discomfort."

Pigeon Island Beach Resort
Nilaveli Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"This was our favourite hotel on our whole trip around Sri Lanka. If you need a couple of days to simply relax and recharge, then this has to be the place. The hotel is simply lovely, the rooms are spacious, stylish and well appointed. The pool is magnificent as is the beach which is right at the end of the grounds. Staff were great and the food excellent. Be warned, there is really nothing much else around, so don't go worrying about "things to do" away from the hotel. Trincomalee itself hasn't much going for it except the Dutch Fort and a fantastic harbour."

Anantamaa Trincomalee
Trincomalee Beach front,Trincomalee - View on map
"Nice hotel located at the beach of Trincomalee with a nice pool and an aisle, which connects the hotel directly to the beach. The room was spacious and well-equipped (TV, fridge, ceiling fan, water boiler with coffee and tea, AC). At the breakfast you can coose from a good variety of western and sri-lankan stlye food, also eggs and omeletes are freshly prepared. The hotel is close to some nice restaurants on the beach and great activities can be booked either trough the hotel or tour agents on the beach (cheaper). I would really recommend a snorkeling tour at the Pigeon Island! nice corral reef with myn fishes, riff sharks and turtles. The only down-side was that the Wi-Fi did not work in our room!"

Traveler impressions of Trincomalee




More about Trincomalee

Boasting the world’s fifth largest natural harbor, Trincomalee is very much a beach destination with beachfront accommodations ranging from budget to luxurious. The harbor has also influenced the city’s past, bringing in European powers over the centuries to vie over control of the waters. The city is home to the Sri Lankan Air Force base as well as naval bases. The airbase operates commercial flights from Colombo, but taking a bus or train is just as convenient a means to arrive.

The beaches of Trincomalee make for a great location when looking to stay in the city. Uppuveli Beach and Nilaveli Beach offer near-pristine conditions for a beautiful stay, with the latter situated within the vicinity of a big military base and offering a less crowded option. Whether located along the waterfront or tucked a bit inland, visitors are never too far from the city’s attractions and activities. As a rather compact town, Trincomalee can be easily explored on foot or bicycle and quickly traversed with a tuk tuk.

When not at the beach or checking out the military bases, visitors can be found enjoying the famous hot springs, taking in the city’s history, or exploring the religious culture via the Hindu and Buddhist temples. Water sports on Pigeon Island and dolphin and whale watching from Uppuveli Beach also make for excellent times while in Trincomalee. Be sure to check out the interactive map for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
