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

This is a very gorgeous hotel, from the architecture to the decor to the stunning vista of the sea with waves crashing against the rocks. The restaurant where breakfast was served was right next to the coast and offered front-row seats of the crashing surf. The room was fantastic, the bed was insanely big and so was the bathroom.

I visited the Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel as a walk-in guest, along with my architect friends who designed the new guest wing and pool side restaurant that have been opened recently. Being close associates of Geoffrey Bawa himself, they were entrusted with the task of adding the new wing, in keeping with the original design that Mr Bawa had done. The... More

From, the moment we arrived we really enjoyed our stay. The entrance staircase was intriguing with the characters spiralling all the way up the stairs , that is then when you are hit with the view looking out to the ocean. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms which was nice and spacious, extremely well decorated and clean, the... More
