There are a few reasons why I did not give the hotel a "terrible" rating: - first reason is out of respect for Geoffrey Bawa who I believe designed the hotel. - Second, the location overlooking the ocean and rocks is unbeatable and the design though outdated now, tries to do justice to the location. I am sure the copper... More

Didn't think anything would top Vil Uyana in Sigiriya but this hotel certainly has its own charms. Being set up against the rocky shore is beautiful especially when dining. We were upgraded which was lovely and as usual, excellent service from a Jetwing hotel. Our room was huge and the view was gorgeous. Breakfast was buffet but the selection was... More

Beautiful location at the shores just north of Galle this hotel has very large, clean and stilish rooms. It has 2 very large pools and a well equiped gym. Staff is very helpfull and the terrace is great. You can have breakfast and dinner inside (airconditioned) or outside enjoying the sunset. Breakfast is great. There's nothing they don't have.

Gorgeous property and great facing the Indian Ocean. Best is sleeping listening to the lull of the strong waves. This photo was taken from our balcony. Food is good and the buffet breakfast was good too. The houseflies were a pest but that's what happens when you are so close to the ocean.

By and large, our stay at the Jetwing Lighthouse in Galle was enjoyable. Our deluxe room offered us a view overlooking both swimming pools and looking out to The Indian Ocean. The room was spacious, with the bed being particularly big and comfortable. Overall the room was clean, although not spotless. Our trip was spoiled somewhat by the fact that... More
