    Hotel description

    Sitting amongst 15 acres of landscaped gardens, Nilaveli Beach Hotel is located on a beautiful coral-white sand beach - one of the best beaches on the island. The hotel overlooks Pigeon Island National Marine Park, yet is within only a 30-minute drive of Trincomalee. 45 modern and comfortable rooms have beautiful views of the ocean and its surroundings. The larger deluxe rooms offer the addition of a television and DVD player and are all sea-facing. The Nilaveli Beach Hotel is a haven for food lovers, especially seafood. The main restaurant offers a blend of eastern and western cuisine and the poolside garden restaurant, overlooking the ocean, offers snacks, drinks and seafood specialties. Guests can enjoy beach BBQs, mainly held on a Saturday night. Stays here provide plenty to do including a dip in the pool, boat trips, diving and snorkelling or you can just relax in a garden hammock.
