We recently spent six nights at the Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel, Galle, Sri Lanka. It is in the most stunning setting overlooking the beach and rocks with waves crashing in. Every room has a sea view and is very spacious. The beds are enormous! We very much enjoyed the food, which was varied, tasty and beautifully presented. The staff were wonderfully... More

You can't deny the high standard of the rooms and the breathtaking views of the sea- magnificent. Loved the interior of the rooms which were not only spacious but tastefully decorated. For the price of a room, I expected a nice welcome but instead was left sitting on a bench for half an hour while my room was being prepared.... More

Stayed at this beautiful hotel for 4 nights.  The pool area was fantastic, the water is like a warm bath! You can easily laze the day away at the pool restaurant lounging in the comfy couches from lunch through to high tea.  Service was fantastic, food beautiful & varied.  Maintenance could be improved throughout the hotel it's the little niggly...

We stopped by here on our travels through Galle for the buffet lunch. All the expectations of the full Sri Lankan buffet with action stations and all wonders of offerings. We were suitably full. Amazing view of the ocean from both in and outside - could sit there for hours with drinks and forget about the rest of the world.... More

We had been intending to stay at this "friends recommended" hotel for a few years and it lived up to, and sometimes exceeded , expectations. The food at Nihal's restaurant in particular was superb both in quality and presentation. The Hotel's beautiful position by the Indian Ocean, spacious bedrooms and excellent staff have been well documented and we agree with... More

We travelled from Colombo on the highway bus down to Galle in time for breakfast. It is well worth the early start. Great view sat outside just taking in the sights and sounds of the indian ocean. The breakfast has great variety from juices, fruits, sweet pastries to a proper full English, with good bacon and sausages! (Rs1300 pp) If... More

This was the final hotel in our tour of Sri Lanka and a brilliant way to spend the remaining four nights of our holiday. A well-appointed hotel with fantastic views of the Indian Ocean. Our room had a balcony that was the wall separating us from the Indian Ocean (we could just throw open the doors of the room and... More

This is a first class hotel with excellent rooms, food and amenities. Rooms are generous in size and beds are enromous, as KY T has noted. There is a stunning view over the sea from our room. The hotel has two huge pools and a big gym. July is the low season, and the hotel is relatively empty - thus... More
