Aqua Hotel, Uppevelli, Trincomalee

We are a budget hotel located in Uppevelli, a popular tourist destination on the beach. We have 23 rooms,18 backpacker tunnels, and 4 luxury rooms under construction as we speak. We are a five star PADI recognized scuba dive centre and a spa and we have a beach side bar and pool. We recently got 4th place in Top Ten Budget Hotels in Sri Lanka by the Guardian UK.

The hotel was closed for 30 years during the war and tsunami. After my return to Sri Lanka 4 years ago, my father handed over the property and I have been rebuilding slowly, with gradual progress but we are getting there!
