Jetwing Lighthouse was one of 4 hotels we stayed in Sri Lanka and definitely the best. Our friends had excellent experience at this hotel and recommended us to spend our honeymoon in the Jetwing Lighthouse.
We started our stay with Jetwing Kurulubedda – escape from city to nature, very cozy and private. The hotel in fact has only 2 rooms or better to say 2 chalets. Chalet itself is 2-storey building with small private pool on the ground floor, bedroom, bathroom and huge terrace on the first. Chalets are located in natural environment and surrounded by lush gardens. – creating very relaxing atmosphere. Originally we planned to stay in Kurulubedda for 2 nights, while on the second day, unfortunately, we experienced some issues with air conditioning, but didn’t have a reason to disappoint because were immediately offered to move to the Jetwing Lighthouse.
As honeymooners we were kindly upgraded to suite, the apartment was huge and comfortable: big bedroom with huge 4-posted bed even bigger living room, huge bathroom with Jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower. Suite has huge balcony and fantastic ocean view. Honeymoon cake and flowers from the hotel was very pleasant surprise for us.
Hotel itself is located atop of the hill right on the Ocean cost, such great location, chosen by most famous Sri Lankan architect Jeffrey Bawa, giving the possibility to admire fantastic ocean views from almost every spot in the hotel. Hotel grounds are well kept and garden is nicely manicured. Strategically hotel also very well located only 1 km from Galle (one of 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Sri Lanka), so if you are tired of lazy sun-bedding you can easily explore this nice town, either for sightseeing or shopping.
The food at the hotel was very delicious; we did try all restaurants and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of proposed dishes.
Hotel staff deserves separate mentioning and special thanks. The staff was friendly and hospitable, everyone did their best to make our stay good and meet our needs. They were excellent and did make our stay really unforgettable
Summarizing would like to mention that in every aspect (service, food, staff and room) hotel exceeded our expectations. We are really delighted that we stayed there and returned home absolutely happy! We can definitely recommend the hotel to all those who would like to spend unforgettable days in Sri Lanka.
