Welcome to an awakening experience and a whale of a time! We sit in the heart of the deep blue of Sri Lanka’s east coast with retro interiors and plush comforts to make you feel right at home at Trinco Blu by Cinnamon. And for the lover of marine life, we have the best of the ocean on offer. As the whale experts in the region,we can take you whale watching, snorkelling and diving with these giant kings of the sea.
Stepping down after a drive through the countryside gives no hint of what lies ahead. If Sri Lanka is considered an island paradise, then Trinco Blu by Cinnamon is her Elysium. A 240km-drive away from the Bandaranaike International Airport, it’s more than worth the long wait to get here, as the magic of the east takes a hold of your heart.
Trincomalee is all about the sea and the rising sun. Every aspect of the hotel accentuates the joy that comes from being so close to nature’s charming presence. Dolphins are an early morning-boat ride away; Submerging yourself under water will reveal a world of wonders that will take your breath away. And if you’ve ever dreamed of walking along the beach and leaving a trail of footprints in the sand, then this is the place to do it.
We’re a classic resort, built in the late 1960s and refurbished in 2010 by expert interior specialist Channa Daswatte who opted for denim trimmings and a retro 70s design that makes Trinco Blu an unusual getaway in the East.
