For whale watchers and nature lovers, Trinco Blu by Cinnamon, just outside Trincomalee on Sri Lanka’s north-east coast, offers an ideal location for sailing and water based events.
The magazine and website BW Hotelier reports head of marketing Dileep Mudadeniya’s views on how this beach property “follows Cinnamon Nature Trails and organises sea excursions without disturbing the marine life”.
It is one of the 11 Cinnamon properties dotted across Sri Lanka, and is “unique in terms of the excursions offered which include whale watching, dolphin watching, snorkelling, scuba diving, lagoon visit among other land excursions”.
Says Mudadeniya: “The pristine beaches of Trincomalee and clear waters is what attracts a large number of tourists to this part of the country.
“Cinnamon Nature Trails organises whale watching—blue whale and sperm whale—for guests during the March–May season when whales come about 6kms close to the shore.”
Facilities include a ‘lifestylist’, while “the property follows certain rules like the sea excursions that use four stroke engines (very silent) which don’t disturb the marine life”.
Adds Mudadeniya: “We work with the local communities for boat operations in Trincomalee and follow various ISO standards at different properties too.
“Trinco Blu by Cinnamon is a beach property on one of the pristine beaches of eastern Sri Lanka.
“It captures the sense of its place in proximity to the highlights of Trincomalee and is minimalistic in design. The property encourages you to step out of your room to explore the quiet and almost white shore and what lies beyond.
“Our specialized Cinnamon Nature Trails team is adept at managing sea excursions to explore marine life. They also assist in the conservation of marine and wildlife.”
