“The Paradise of Calmness & Silence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Jetwing Blue Oceanic is a Very Good Hotel in Negombo area of Sri Lanka. The location is convenient. The rooms were quite spacious and clean. Rooms equipped with all facilities and basic amenities.

The USP of the Hotel is its on the Beach meaning thereby that backdoor of most of the rooms open towards Beach (sea facing) and you can have view of Beach from your room only. Other thing to appreciate is calmness and peaceful environment of Hotel that one can observe absolute pin-drop silence here. Just take 15-2- steps and you will find yourself on Beautiful, vast and scenic beach.

Staff is courteous and Lungi Dress gives feeling as if you are in Southern part of India only. South Indian Food adds taste to the comfortable and peaceful stay.
Recommended for Relaxing, Refreshing and Peaceful Holiday Lovers. Jeyooo…

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a multi stop trip around Sri Lanka. The view and facilities at this place were quite nice, although not breathtakingly amazing. As one of the most expensive resorts in the area we were expecting something exceptional.

The pool was good, food tasty, and the room clean and comfortable. However staff were inattentive and communication was poor. Some examples: When we sat down for dinner we got asked 4 times by different staff members what our room number was (someone should have written it down somewhere or something...). When we were trying to get towels for the pool (as instructed, since we aren't supposed to use the room towels), we had trouble finding the pool boy, and once we did, instead of getting one, they yelled at one of the other staff members to grab a towel. This guy disappeared and came back after a short (but still bearable at this point) wait. Then he started chatting with the guy who asked him to get the towels instead of actually giving them to us until my partner went up to them and asked for them...There was also this funny event at dinner where the people at the table behind us were scared of dogs, and stray dogs kept wandering up to their table while they were eating. In my opinion the staff should have offered to relocate them to a table further inside (instead of right by the beach) but instead, they had to yell out every time a dog came nearby, and a staff member would come and chase the dog briefly (at least until it was our of a threatening range). Either the same dog or another would be back within 5 minutes...

We also tried the spa, the ambience is nice enough and they have a good selection of treatments, but my therapist had long nails which were digging into me as she did the treatment (obviously she cared more about her personal beauty than the quality of her treatments). My partner's was also not pleasant as he got a male therapist who insisted on using painful pressure even after being requested to reduce it a few times (this wasn't a deep tissue massage either but a swedish one).

One final point, I'm sure it doesn't apply to all staff at this resort (as there are many). My partner (who is Sri Lankan) tried to call up to get information about rates and facilities. The first time he called he spoke in Sinhalese, he was treated disrespectfully and spoken to with disinterest (I guess because they discriminate against 'locals'). He called them back a few minutes later and tried to speak English, but he had to repeat his questions multiple times to get them to understand what he was actually saying, as the customer service staff member's English was not up to scratch...I cannot fathom the reason for this kind of behaviour, and it is not a good customer service at all.

We loved staying here. The best breakfast hoppers ! Essential
Part of any morning.

Well equipped fitness centre - although the gym manager did turn the TV up loudly as soon as my husband left - I felt this was quite sexist as he was respectful of our ambiance when he was there but as soon as just a woman he did his own thing

The buffets are fabulous and the pool area was really nice - especially the small shelf where can can sit and read under a shade cloth

I stayed very briefly at Jetwing Blue hotel in Srilanka for a delayed flight transit. The costumer service was very nice and friendly. Food was delicious, with good view straight to a brown sand beach. There was also swimming pool. Overall this is a very good hotel. It's quite pricey but with quality.

We stayed here for one night during our trip around Sri Lanka. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The staff were exceptional and attended to our every need. The kids loved the free in-room wifi too!!

The restaurant was very good. We had dinner and breakfast here. Both were well done. The breakfast was a buffet and included in our room price.

No complaints and would definitely stay here again!!

We stayed here on June 13th for a function. The reception area and food serving areas are wide open and very warm during the day. The rooms are air conditioned.
although immediate ocean front, it is a good walk to the waters edge. The buffet meals had lot of variety, but the vast food serving area cannot be protected from flies under the tropical conditions. Recommended for people who love sun and the beach.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for your very nice comments on our property which you seem to have enjoyed.

I wish to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by some of the local and tropical species of Sri Lanka and whilst it is challenging to entirely eradicate their presence, we are working on increasing the frequency of our pest control program, which incidentally use environmentally friendly chemicals. In addition, we do pay attention to possible breading grounds and your comment assists us in re-enforcing some of the measures we have in place.

Thank you once again for recommending our property to the sun & beach lovers and we remain at your service

Ayubowan!
