The 100m salt-water swimming pool which was just 4ft looked and felt magnificent. Pool staff was always available, the towels and equipment were clean. We got a 'Family' room which was quite spacious and luxurious. The food was awesome. The restaurant was right next to the beautiful lagoon, and it was a exotic view. Overall, the hotel had an awesome... More

After a long flight from London the Jetwing Lagoon was a nice welcome to Sri Lanka. The staff were genuinely friendly and super helpful. The resort has a massive swimming pool which was nice to take a dip in after the flight and in the hot sun. The rooms were beautiful too with outside bathrooms (private not open shared!), free...

I stayed at the Jetwing Lagoon with my husband and two small children, and couldn't have been happier! The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, they're very clean, the showers are great and the beds are big and comfy! The pool was great and the buffet breakfast was one of the best we've experienced. The thing that we loved the... More

We spent our first couple of nights in Sri Lanka at this hotel and it's am incredible place with extremely nice and polite staff. The hotel sits at the edge of the lagoon and the views are remarkable. Make sure you wake up in time to see the sun come up over the lagoon. The food is also great and... More

This Jetwing hotel is a must stay in Sri lanka! Great hotel rooms, great pool, excellent food quality and on top of that one of the most qualified and friendly hotel staff I've ever experienced. Excellent!

Argubally the best hotel in the world. I have been to many hotels in asia America and the middle east particularly in Dubai where they said the best hotels are, but this hotel can be named as the best hotel due it's location services food and everything else in between.

The pool is unbelievable, 100 meters long, swimming in the evening it was like being in a bath! We were upgraded too, and our room was the cleanest we stayed in of the... More

We stayed here on our last night in Sri Lanka. It is a beautiful hotel, massive 100 mtr pool and lots of space to relax and sun-bake. Our room had a lagoon view, it was very large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is very impressive. It is an open plan outdoor garden bathroom. Very beautiful, well appointed and deliciously warm... More

We stopped here for one night on our way to the cultural triangle. It was perfect in every way; the 100m pool was idyllic, the rooms were spotless with a fabulously cool outside bathroom, the staff were friendly and helpful and the buffet supper and breakfast were delicious with a range of food from traditional Sri Lankan curries and hoppers...

This hotel is very good for transit to airport. We flew out at 4 am so we needed to be near the airport and this hotel is 20 mins by car. The hotel is a bit dated but this didn't trouble us the rooms were large with bed and lounge area. The bathroom is outside which I thought was wonderful... More
