The Thinnai

Nestled amid the Palmyra framed landscapes of Jaffna in Northern Sri Lanka is the opulent boutique hotel, ‘The Thinnai’.

Best Known For

Located approximately 2.5 KM from vibrant Jaffna City, accommodation offerings at ‘The Thinnai’ are inspired by the distinctive, verandah-styled traditional homes seen in Jaffna. Elucidating a sense of quiet and repose, the summery retreat combines traditional aesthetics with plush modern comforts and good old Yaal hospitality.

The Experience

Embodying the spirit of Jaffna’s culture, an assortment of luminous and spacious suite retreats - each equipped with a living area, balcony / veranda, refrigerator and wardrobe - are meant to serve as family accommodations, as well as, romantic getaways. One Bedroom and Two Bedroom Suites are comprised of courtyard-view Vaalai and Thaamarai Suites, kitchen-detailed Panai and Nelli Suites and private-plunge-pool-featured Thennai and Mallihai Suites.

Homegrown goodness sourced from the hotel’s organic farm, together with an eclectic collection of native and international recipes, ensures an enjoyable dining experience. The ‘amudham’ restaurant’ brings to life tantalising Jaffna and Indian preparations, accented with indigenous spices. The ‘Saaral Pub’ offers respite from the mundane whilst The Kottil glasses out luscious beverages by the pool.

From traditional Ayurvedic treatments and therapies, to herbal baths and beauty traditions, a selection of holistic healing rituals are arranged on request, at the boutique sister property, ‘Thinnai Organic’. The exotic swimming pool is perfect for a sunny laze.

Around and About

An evocative stronghold of Hindu culture, the Palmyra-strewn landscapes of Jaffna are steeped in natural beauty and historical significance. The shrubbery-bound Casuarina Beach, quaint Jaffna Fort, golden-ochre Nallur Kandaswamy Temple and the bustling, mango-scented Jaffna Market are some prime attractions to enjoy.
