    Our opinion

    A tranquil resort located on one of Sri Lanka’s finest beaches

    Hotel description

    Located on Nilaveli beach, Pigeon Island Beach Resort is north of Trincomalee, overlooking Pigeon Island. This is one of the finest beaches in Sri Lanka with wide stretches of sand and miles of clear shallow waters, where one can venture far out to sea. The long wide beaches offer surfing and scuba diving, in addition to fishing and whale-watching (in season).The 30 deluxe rooms and eight suites open on to the beach and convey an understated elegance. Each of the spacious rooms has private butler service and contains modern amenities such as televisions and tea and coffee making facilities. The suites have a separate dining and living area. The decor of the hotel is minimalistic, with a few pieces of curios such as old wooden door frames and a wooden elephant carving dating back to the Dutch period. The restaurant opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner, blending contemporary and classic, Eastern and Western cuisine and includes special seafood dishes. The bar serves a selection of drinks, cocktails and snacks. All this combines to provide a tranquil and fulfilling stay.
