We started our honeymoon tour of Sri Lanka at the Jetwing Lighthouse. Beautiful Hotel and surroundings with some very welcoming staff. The room was clean with views of the sea overlooking one of the pools. We were treated to a special meal on the beach on our second night and during our brief stay enjoyed exceptional food and well mannered... More

this hotel is a classy joint a couple of clicks from Galle Fort, with a nice aspect over the ocean and a bit of shingly beach which is good for shells. But not swimming - like much of Sri Lanka the currents are treacherous. Get a day ticket for the pools if you are not staying there and enjoy a... More

Well of course this a very nicely built hotel, however we are pretty disappointed about the service at the main restaurant. I am writing this while waiting for the dinner, starving with two kids and my wife. We came for dinner at 7.30, it's 9.20pm right now, we are yet to eat our main course. They seem dysfunctional at best,... More

We spent two nights at the hotel and every bit was memorable. The location is very romantic. The staff is very friendly and supportive. We are vegetarians so they prepared special food for us every time. The chef "Prasanna" was very kind enough to fulfill our needs and prepared delicious vegetarian recipes. Overall a great luxury hotel. Highly recommend it!

We recently spent 2 nights at the jetwing lighthouse as part of our tour of srilanka. We stayed in a superior room, which was beautifully decorated. Everything in the room was luxurious. The view from our room was breath taking, as it looked out to sea. Apparently you can see whales migrating but we weren't lucky enough to see any.... More

We only had one night at this hotel which was unfortunate as we were allocated the Executive suite which was fantastic. The room was so large we think it had a bigger floor area than our house! The location of this hotel is superb and has a large number of facilities for guests to enjoy. As we were only staying... More

This was our first time staying here and it was at the tail end of our stay in Sri Lanka. We stayed in the deluxe rooms in the new wing for 4 nights. When we stayed they had only been open less than 10 days so there were a few teething problems such as some lights not working and the... More

We stayed her for six nights at the end of our tour and it was a great place to relax after eight days on the road. The rooms were lovely with gigantic, comfortable beds and excellent facilities. The only negative was that there was no socket in the bathroom for the hairdryer they provided but they soon sorted this out... More
