“quite unexpected but a lovely surprise”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

very unusual place - and worth staying a night or two when in the northern area to see sigiriya rock etc. look out for the crocodile which comes at breakfast time. and if you order sri lankan breakfast dont be surprised if it is curry.

Beautiful wilderness backdrop. Truly private space to lounge on the cool cement floors, plunge into your own pool, sit on an arm chair on the wooden deck and gaze at the night sky or very simply b, just as you want to - uncomplicated, pampered, blissful. Oh and the full body aromatherapy massage was heavenly.

We spent two nights at Vil Uyana occupying a "Forest Bungalow" which has a very spacious bedroom upstairs with all the facilities. There is a large bathroom area down stairs which has been designed artistically. The highlight of the bungalow however is the plunge pool which you have for yourself. This is a fairly large size plunge pool.

The service was excellent. There are no buffets at this hotel. All are set menu meals with good options to choose from. The management and staff are very accomadative and are willing to go out of the way to make you feel at home.

An extremely relaxing way to spend a few days away from Colombo. We loved it and will definitely be back.

Perfect Place to relax and for nature lovers to spend outside. Or do nothing and just indulge in every single creature comfort inside the Villas. Out of the choices of Villas, we receommend the Forest Villa to be the best, with your own spa inside and private outdoor pool....

Room Tip: Forget the price difference and book a Forest Villa!

We had booked a one night's stay in a water villa on full board basis starting with dinner and ending with lunch the following day. At check in we were informed that lunch will be served from 12.30 to 3.00pm so we had a late breakfast around 10 am and had booked spa sessions from 11.30 to 1.00 thinking to have a late relaxed lunch on the day of checkout. However at 12 noon a phone call from the reception informed us that we must vacate the rooms and a person was sent to check the mini bar by 12.15pm. We have stayed at almost all of the Jetwing properties and at many top class hotels in Europe, Australia and Asia but never were we asked to leave a room prior to the meal that we had booked upto was served. If lunch starts at 12.30, surely a guest who had arrived for dinner the previous night and had booked till lunch should not be asked to leave the room at 12 even before the restaurant starts to serve lunch. Between noon and 1.30pm we were given three phone calls by the reception asking to pack up and leave. If you expect guests who have booked up to lunch to vacate rooms by 12 pm, you should not accept full board bookings starting with dinner.

Jetwinghotels, General Manager at Jetwing Vil Uyana, responded to this review, 13 September 2011
Dear Guest,

Let us thank you for patronizing Jetwing Vil Uyana and we apologize for the inconvenience caused during your stay with us. A proper investigation was done with regard to difficulties faced during your check out. Our normal check-in and check-out times our 12.00hrs and 14.00hrs respectively. The hotel was fully booked on the mentioned date and as such a late check-out could not be arranged. We do not wish to restrain any guest to a firm time line.

Striking a perfect balance between guests who are checking in and guests who are checking out is an art which eludes hoteliers. Instead we strive to reach a common ground where all parties are satisfied. Do expect my apologies if we have fallen short of doing so.

Awaiting your return and a much longer stay at Jetwing Vil Uyana.

Sincerely,
General Manager.

We stayed here for the first few days of our honeymoon travelling around Sri Lanka. We were upgraded from a Paddy Villa (which looked nice anyway!) to a duplex Villa which had it's own private pool! The staff were great and the food was gorgeous. If you're an avid exerciser there is a track around the edge of the complex. Awesome!

we arrived @ vil uyana after a long journey, and immediately realized that we should at least spend one day purely at the hotel, i.e. doing no sightseeing outside, just enjoying the serenity of the hotel and nature surrounding it. one of the things i realized after my trip to Sri Lanka is that Sri Lanka in total is a place where bird observers have a lot to do, since there are many lakes, etc. in this hotel you have one watch tower and another observation place. Apart from the nature, the architectural style of the main facility and the rooms themselves is extra-ordinary & very relaxing. The rooms with private pools are very convenient ...
