Stayed one night at Light house Hotel Galle and enjoyed the experience. Sitting out on the balcony was truly heavenly whilst watching the waves break and far out on the horizon the ships moving along at their own pace.The great thing about this place was the service which was exceptional, even though they were full they ensured that each guests...

Jetting lighthouse took our breath away. Stunning view of the ocean from the room we had with a lovely balcony. Top service from all the staff with a special mention to Iru at Nihals bar and Naveen and Harnesh the great bar men. Spotless throughout, well maintained gardens, and decor. Fabulous pool area with pool attendants sorting your lounger and... More

This hotel is another designed by Geoffrey Bawa and is spacious and luxurious as well as sympathetically built with as little environmental disturbance as possible. It has extensive grassy areas overlooking the sea with two enormous swimming pools (and a small children's pool). Snacks and drinks can be had from Nihal's bar while sunbathing. All staff were fantastic, doing everything... More

Relaxing and welcoming from the moment of check in, at which you are given a drink and a scented towel and invited to sit and enjoy the ocean view. Staff are extremely accommodating and genuinely friendly. Rooms, amenities and service are very good without being off-puttingly showy or formal. No real beach as such, but a walk along the Indian...

I visited with my family. The main restaurants had a significant problem. Even when we entered in the middle of the stipulated meal times (1330 for lunch, 0830 for breakfast), many of the dishes were awaiting replenishment. There were long waiting times. Most of the time, the guests just 'gave up' on the dish. Sensitivity to meal preferences was found... More

We didn't stay in the hotel, as we were renting villa near by. We only used the spa - came for 1 hour couples massage. The spa experience was tranquil and soothing, in a spacious room. Just one hiccup - I was asked if I'm ok with oil scalp massage - I end up leaving with oil dripping hair. Overall... More

Great setting, wonderful food, 2 large pools, lovely rooms and outstanding staff. What more can one ask for! It's about 2.5 kms from Galle fort and it's very easy to get transport outside the hotel. Stayed for 2 nights in April 2015 with my wife and some (8years)

My friend and I stayed at the Jetwing Lighthouse only 1 night, but we could have stayed for longer. The hotel is situated on top of a rock overlooking Galle harbor and the town. The view is spectacular, but that only a small part of it. The room was very large, with an enormous bathroom. The hardwood floors and wooden... More
