This is a brand new luxurious contemporary styled hotel opened in mid-2014 and is situated at the beautiful beach of Nilaveli to the north of Trincomalee. The hotel has fantastic views over the golden beach (one of the best in Sri Lanka) and these can be particularly enjoyed from the rooftop bar. All the rooms are finished to a very high standard and all have great views of the idyllic tropical beach and the 2 swimming pools.
The Amethyst Resort in Passikudah offers great value for money.
All the rooms are in semi-detached chalets, some of which overlook the river (where you may see the odd crocodile) and the rest overlooking the sea and the glorious Passikudah Bay with its beautiful golden sands.
