Nilaveli Beach Resort

Nilaveli Beach Resort Located on the East Coast of Sri Lanka, known the world over for its beautiful soft white sandy beaches which slope gently into clear shallow seas, the vast Indian Ocean which washes on to the shores of this coastal resort. The ideal place for a peaceful holiday, with nothing but the beauty of the sea enveloping you...

Here you could swim around the multi-hued reef protecting the island like so many layers of ribbon cake - turquoise, ochre, salmon pink, smoky grey, sandstone and cobalt blue - and revel in an underwater world of colourful translucence, feasting your eyes on shoals of jewel-hued fish darting among the surrounding coral and rocks.

Here, in close proximity to the vast Indian Ocean and its many secret treasures, is the Nilaveli Beach Hotel, located 275 km. east of Colombo and a short drive away from the town of Trincomalee, renowned for its natural harbour, known to be one of the finest in the world.

In 1775 a teenage midshipman named Horatio Nelson arrived in Trincomalee aboard the HMS 'Seahorse'. Later, as admiral of the British Navy, he remembered it as 'the finest harbour in the world' - tribute indeed from such a man.

A number of shipwrecks including the aircraft carrier HMS 'Hermes' which went down during World War II into 30 fathoms of water, and its sister ship the HMS 'Empire' which came to its rescue only to suffer the same fate, lie submerged beneath the waters.

The HMS 'Hermes' was rediscovered only in the 1970s, its hulk, teeming with marine life. The HMS 'Empire' has not yet been found - who knows, you just might be the one to make this momentous discovery!

The Nilaveli Beach on the East Coast is 'the other side of the island&', one that remains pristine, pure and very private even today - it is undoubtedly the best in Sri Lanka and one of the premier beaches in Asia.
Distance From Colombo : 240 km
At Nilaveli Beach Hotel, the Sand Man treads delicately over the soft sands as he checks on you - then again, he has no need to worry. The sound of silence at nightfall is broken only by the soft wash of waves on the shore, and a gentle breeze as it drifts through your dreams, taking with it all the dust and cobwebs of the hectic city life left far behind.

80 delightfully designed and comfortably furnished rooms are categorized as Standard Air Conditioned and Non Air Conditioned sea view rooms with fans, Deluxe Rooms and Luxury Suites. The concept is based on providing guests with plenty of space in which they could cut loose, relax both mind and body, and rejuvenate themselves in serene isolation.

All rooms are with private patios offering a breathtakingly beautiful view of the sloping white sands, vast blue ocean and seemingly unending horizon which stretches out beyond.

You could never appreciate the life giving sun until you see it rise in all its majestic glory on the East Coast of Sri Lanka.

Wake up at dawn and sit by your wide glass window as you wait for the world to awaken and be washed by the soft gold of the sunrise. Or you could step out on to your patio and relax while you watch the sand, sea and sky emerge from the darkness of night in to the brightness of a new day.

Positive :
Trincomalee is beautiful, simply beautiful. No other words to describe it. It is scorchingly hot year round, but the simple remedy for this is to just plunge into the very blue waters freely available all around you... The town is typical Sri Lanka or south Indian style, with Hindu Temples / Kovils etc around... Children walking to school barefoot, their happy faces make you feel ashamed of how much you have and how much they don't, but yet they are with smiling faces while you worry about seeming all material things, it is truly an amazing experience, and you feel like your innermost cords have really been touched in this strange and yet enticing place... You will love Trincomalee, none of the hotels are luxurious so if you want butler services this is not the place for you, but if you want to get in touch with your inner being, reopen that 3rd eye of yours, Trincomalee and thereabouts are highly recommended.
Negative :
Takes ages to drive from Colombo/Apt to Trincomalee, with inevitable stops en route, making the drive at least around 8 odd hours... Very tiring, however the sites and village life seen on route can also make it a very inspiring experience...

A private helicopter can be organized, from Colombo / Trincomalee however this is ridiculously expensive...
Activities :
The main restaurant at the Nilaveli Beach Hotel offers the best of both worlds - a delightful mix of Western and Eastern cuisine and a variety of seafood specialities. All you need do is simply relax in a colourful beach wrap and sink your teeth into a luscious lobster, delicious crab or crispy cuttlefish - or try them all!

Three bars in the lounge area ensure 'Happy Hour' extends through the day and night, providing you with liquid sustenance to lift your spirits.

TV Lounge, gift boutique and conference hall. If your choice is to relax and rejuvenate in serene isolation, you could always build yourself a cocoon of tranquillity. Then again, if you are a people person who needs to mingle, share and get activated, Nilaveli Beach Hotel is large enough to give you all the space you need.
