"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!"

"Basically the facilities there are deserved to be called as four star hotel, except for a couple of furniture you may feel a little bit rough which are made of raw wood, others like Appliances, timber floor, modern toilet & shower and bedding are all fantastic. It is more like a boutique inn, the staff there are not as professional as those in five star hotels, but they are extremely nice and make you feel welcome. BBQ buffet was available for dinner during our stay, we sit together with other people at one big table and played board game after dinner. It was amazing. The experience was terrific, and far beyond our expectation, highly recommended."

"We stayed for a couple of nights. Had a really nice dinner at the Village Restaurant. A few minutes walk to the beach. Breakfast was good and large as customary in Sri Lanka. Staff accommodating and hospitable. A little bit tricky to find but the tuktuk drivers sorted it out. Super quiet not a lot to do make your own fun!"

And the beach is totally unspoilt, never crowded, clear water, not too deep, very good for swim. The pigeon island is a stone throw away. All in all amazing place for relaxing holiday."

"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."

"We have booked a standard room which was not available at the moment we arrived ( it was fully booked ), however the staff was very friendly and didn´t put us to the lowest budget room ( usually offered to taxi drivers ) but offered us to stay at their top level room, for the same price, with sea view, TV, A/C and a big bathroom. Thanks to this the stay was lovely. Next to us stayed a couple, which had the same problem 2 days before us, however worse experience with the staff performance. Food was very nice."

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.
