“We chose Trincomalee, known as Sri Lanka’s land of the rising sun, because it holds a special energy and faces an ocean full of vibrant marine life. We’re a classic resort, built in the late 1960s but we breathed new life into it in 2010. We drafted in expert interior specialist Channa Daswatte, who opted for a retro 70s design that makes Trinco Blu stand out. We want our guests to explore the underwater paradise at our doorstep. As the whale experts in the region, we love to take guests out whale watching, snorkeling and scuba diving with these giant kings of the sea. Caring for the environment is key to our philosophy. We are a Green Globe-certified hotel and go to great lengths to protect the marine life and villages around us. Some 2,000 fishermen and their families live around the hotel and we encourage good fishing practices and even employ some of the fishermen to take guests out spotting dolphins!”
