Another one of my regular stops when doing business in the region. You can find higher rated and star hotels but for the price, which I consider is excellent, it is great, friendly and charming hotel. I put a dinner on for my men. For 9 people, a three course meal and two rounds of alcoholic drinks worked out at... More

This could be a truley great hotel. Wonderful views out over the palm gardens, two large swimming pools and the sea, choice of three good restaurants, excellent service and staff; BUT let down by no lift to the four storey main bedroom block, you have to climb up an external staircase which is adjacent to the main road. The bedrooms... More

It's become a habit. Each time I think lanka it has to begin with my preferred tour operator calling the hotel to check for vacancy. In 2013, I said to myself I'll get the girls and come here and we need to see pristine luxury. So, well this time it was second time Lanka and second time light house. Stayed... More

Outstanding views from the right rooms, ie top floor facing the sea. Downside where we were: noisy smelly traffic beside the open passageway mornings and evenings. But comfortable, clean and spacious room, good breakfast, helpful courteous staff, choice of several restaurants for different kinds of eating experience, and a truly big swimming pool with excellent snack/light meal resto beside it....

The hotel policy did not cover meals for my driver. I could not buy meal tickets ahead of time. They asked me to come down one hour before each meal -breakfast, lunch, dinner, to pay for his meals. I had to give the driver name and the van license plate each time. I complained to the staff and they said... More

We arrived at the Jetwing Lighthouse unexpectedly after booking into the Jetwing Kurulubedda and finding the room was not available. The staff immediately arranged to transfer us to the Lighthouse at no additional cost. Our stay was for three nights and we could have stayed on much longer if we had the time. Previously we had visited Geoffrey Bawa's house... More

Stayed as part of our honeymoon and this is one of the most impressive hotels on our trip. Such a beautiful spot right on the beach with a lovely breeze for sunbathing and fantastically huge warm swimming pools. From the shady loungers you can watch sea turtles feed on the coral.
