Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Based mainly in Mirissa at the southernmost point of Sri Lanka, Jade 52 embarks on cruises from various locations across the country. There are shorter cruises between Mirissa, Weligama and Galle or Passikuda to Challituvu Island on Sri Lanka’s east coast. Longer 6 night cruises depart from Trincomalee to Batticaloa on the east coast, or Kalpitiya to Jaffna via Mannar on the west coast.

Rooms at Jade 52

Jade 52’s 4 double passenger cabins can accommodate up to 8 guests, and are very comfortable, making good use of the limited space, each one spanning the width of one of the catamaran’s two hulls. Each cabin has a private bathroom.

Food and drink

Food on board Jade 52 makes the best of the rich bounty of the ocean, with fresh fish and seafood barbecues offered up beneath the stars at the end of a long day’s sailing and having fun in the sea. Breakfast takes the form of an extensive spread featuring fresh tropical fruits and accompanied by Ceylon tea.


Equipment is provided for various water sports, including snorkelling gear, stand-up paddle boards and fishing equipment. As well as the bathrooms in the cabins, the boat has a fresh water shower to wash off when you come out of the ocean. Fishing rods and binoculars are also available for your use. Needless to say, lifeguards are provided for all passengers, all the crew are highly trained to deal with any accidents, and you will receive extensive safety briefings on boarding.

Activities at Jade 52
