108 Palms Beach Resort is a unique place to stay, situated on a secluded virgin beach in the middle of a tropical exotic garden surrounded by beautiful palm trees and wildlife. During your stay here it will honestly feel like you are on a Robinson Crusoe adventure but with more luxuries and less of the ship wrecked situations.
Most of the rooms look out on to the beautiful white beach and is only a short stroll to reach the water and go for an early morning swim or soak up the sun during the day. You will be greeted by the delightful manager who is at your service and their local chef will prepare authentic delicious local cuisine dishes including super fresh sea-food.
If you find yourself in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka then I would definitely recommend booking yourself a few nights stay here at the 108 Palms Beach Resort.
- Perfect secluded beach views

During our stay at 108 Palms Beach Resort we opted to spend three nights in the Beachfront Bungalow and we were certainly not disappointed.
Continuing the theme of Robinson Crusoe, our bungalow was super close to the beautiful virgin beach (35 metres to be exact) offering us divine views of this paradise. It was absolutely incredible to fall asleep listening to the relaxing sounds of waves crashing just outside and then waking up clear blue waters. We had our own private entrance with a terrace that we could hang out on drinking a few cold beers and watching the sun go down before heading out for an evening of fun.
The bungalow itself is quite basic but it had a comfortable and clean double bed, with its own bathroom that included free toiletries, adjustable fan, mosquito netting, hammock, towels, bottled water and free Wi-Fi.
They also have a selection of other rooms and bungalows where you can check out here.
The resort is perfectly located directly on a beautiful beach which stretches for miles and offers plenty of things to do such as water sports (paddle boarding, snorkelling, diving, swimming, and boating), sun bathing, relaxing and yoga.
They offer the training of asanas, pranayama (breathing techniques), and you can also engage in guided relaxations and detox techniques including a total body detox, as well as in the guided detox of your organs (stomach, nose, nasopharynx, small and large intestines, eyes, lungs, etc.). Or if you prefer a more dynamic exercise, they can focus on whatever you wish or need.
Fee: LKR 1000 per a yoga lesson
Being in Trincomalee is superb as it is a great location to reach nearly all the best tourist attractions that are worth seeing in Sri Lanka. 108 Palms Beach Resort kindly offer an abundance of excellent trips and tours so that you can experience all of them, including tours to and around Trincomalee, Sigiriya, Kandy, Nuwara Elliya, dolphin & whale observations, and many more.
If you fancy some ultimate relaxation then the resort can provide you with an experienced massage therapist. You can enjoy a full body massage, a Thai massage, Kati Vasti with hot oils, etc. The massages and therapies bring you a pleasant relief which will be enhanced by the energy of our resort.
Santalwood, spices, aloe vera, honey, buffalo yoghurt and other essential oils and extracts are used for the massages.
Sigiriya (Lions) Rock
This has to be one of the most famous tourist attractions that you can find in Sri Lanka and for good reason too. This huge rock is only 3.5km away from the retreat and towers over the surrounding landscapes. It is thousands of years old and was the site of the Royal Palace of one Sri Lanka’s ancient Kings. It has a lions paw cut into the rock so be sure to get a photo of this!
How to get there
Upon your request, the resort can arrange for your transportation from the airport to the resort. They offer either an air-conditioned minivan (for 8 people) or an air-conditioned car (for 4 people). Transportation fee is USD 160 for the minivan, and USD 140 for the car.
