My husband and I are currently on our last night at Jetwing Era and all I can say is that we are so sad to be leaving. Having arrived a week ago for a wedding in Galle, a number of friends (8) from around the world stayed at this hotel and as seasoned travellers, we all agreed that it is truly a home away from home. Mr Da Silva the manager, Lalitha and the other staff go above and beyond to accommodate our every request and everyone from the security guard to the barman (Dinesha) and the housekeeping staff (espcially!) are ready to serve with the happiest smile! The rooms are very modern, but are still sympathetic to the beach and colonial theme of the region. The bathrooms (with waterfall showerheads) are enormous as well! One of the great aspects of this place is the food. I've eaten at a number of places during our week here and other places at the Fort but none have come close to the cuisine here which is a perfect blend of Western and Sri Lankan. My favorite part? The tranquility. Even with a hectic week of wedding events to attend, the feel of peaceful retreat and sanctuary can be found here. Though we are leaving tomorrow, this place will always have a special place in our travel memoirs. Thank you again to the staff at Jetwing. We will be back!
