This place is beautiful! Our room was right next to the paddy fields, so we had a nice view. Unfortunately, we couldn't experience all the hotel's amenities due to COVID, but the staff made sure that our stay here was still perfect. Sameera was exceptional! He took care of all our needs and was always available through WhatsApp in case of anything. The food was great too. Nothing negative to say about the place. No AC but the rooms stay cool with fans. Would like to visit this place again post-COVID.
During a recent trip to Sri Lanka, I stayed in numerous Jetwing properties. Jetwing Kaduruketha distinguished itself by its rustic charm and "off the grid" feel. I had a villa a short distance from the main building. While not air conditioned, it had a nice ceiling fan that kept the air moving and comfortable. The lack of a television was rather nice...very easy to just relax and not be tempted by troubles of the outside world. Due to COVID, I was the only guest at the hotel. Sameera, one of the staff members, did an excellent job ensuring that my comfort and needs were attended to. He did pretty much everything, from housekeeping, waiter duties, reception, bell-hop and more. He was very kind and entertaining, and even took me on a bird watching hike around the property early one morning. He is an absolute gem of a guy. The 60 acres is beautifully maintained and has a working rice farm that provides all the rice for the Jetwing properties across the country. It's an organic farm, and relies on hard working farmers who plant, tend, smooth the paddies, and chase away peacocks, pigeons and other birds who try to eat the newly sown rice. Lots of wildlife is just waiting for you to discover it...toque macaques abound, as well as various land and water monitors, lots of species of birds, and even the elusive fisher cat (although I didn't see any). It's a wildlife lover's paradise. The cuisine is marvelous and relies heavily on locally sourced meats, grains and vegetables. Local and international cuisine options are available, and the curries are amazing. Because I live in Saudi Arabia, and don't have pork options, you can bet I indulged in the pork chops one evening...it was divine. Please consider this hotel if you're looking for a nice, relaxing holiday. I hope to return sometime in the future, post-COVID, and with my family. I look forward to it!…
Extremely courteous staff who looked after our every need. Distinct experience for nature lovers with the hotel bordering paddy fields and the Kirindi oya. Peacocks and wildfowl galore, you wake up as if you are living in a jungle. A better WiFi connection would have been helpful, during the rainy season when there is no choice but to stay indoors. The food was delicious, with a unique Sri Lankan twist on each and every dish. Most of the hotel staff are from the local community, who have been well looked after even during the pandemic downturn.
My family and I (6 people) stayed in this beautiful hotel for 2 nights. I am truly loss for words to explain what a peaceful heaven it is. We all enjoyed our valuable family time in this place, the atmosphere and the view from our rooms definitely helped us to enjoy and spend our time as a family. The service we received in this place is worth mentioning. Staff were so friendly and very helpful. The food compliments the concept and the environment. All the meals served were well presented and very tasty. Overall this a beautiful hotel and we highly recommend this place to any prospective visitor. Thanks to GM and all the staff. Wish you all the very best and stay safe.
In our All Jetwing Tour de Ceylon round trip, this was the best stay. The covid 19 practices adoption by the team was first class. Contactless check-in checkout menu etc is really great. Naminda and the team was doing the best service and ensured that we are delighted throughout. Most healthy foods, clean and tidy rooms and superb eco system. The corner most Arachchi chalet is highly recommended. The fine dining experience by the pool was memorable. You will see enough peacocks around the clock. Best Jetwing service out of all Jetwing premises in Lanka.
