We had had a long journey on the train which, I would warn, you aren't your Virgin style! But to come back here and get another suite was just perfect. It had two bedrooms and a beautiful Japanese style with a Japanese hot tub/Jacuzzi. And the pool was beautiful. There was only the problem that the beach wasn't safe to... More

We were recommended a stay in Negombo rather than Colombo as it's much nearer the airport and easier to travel from for the rest of our travels. This was the first of our Jetwing hotels that we booked and they were a surprising delight. This was tranquil and lovely and a good start to our journey. The old style buildings... More

We stayed here for the first and last night of our holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our brief visits. We were upgraded to the honeymoon suite on our first night (we have been married 31 years, but never mind, it was nice). The bedroom and bathroom of even the deluxe room was enormous and well equipped. It is a little annoying... More

This hotel has the most beautiful view of the Negambo Lagoon. Exciting water sport like sailing , canoeing , water skying , jet skying etc hence never board. An amazing 100 m pool.The food exceptionally good.

Hotel room's condition is fare but have a extraordinary lagoon view. Sunset view in lagoon site is an amazing experience. Food and service are okay. The swimming pool is excellent. I just stay for 1 night and I think it's worth to spend few more days here. Btw it's a bawa style hotel which is a good point.

The Jetwing Lighthouse is a great place to stay just after arriving in or before departing from Sri Lanka. Big rooms and fantastic outdoor bathrooms. Good food but it better be good because the hotel is quite far from Negombo. No beach that you can use for swimming so no good staying there longer for a beach holiday but the... More

Stayed for just one night after arriving in Colombo. 30 minutes transfer from the airport. We had a first floor superior room. The room was huge with an equally massive bathroom. The 100 metre is fantastic, staff were very attentive with towels and drinks. There is another pool across the road overlooking the sea. The sea was rough and you... More

It was a quick stop/one night stay as it was close to the airport but having arrived so late at night it would have been nice to have a quick check in and service to one's bedroom through the dark courtyard but we were told to find our own rooms with luggage to follow at 1am ! Breakfast was very... More

Arrived here late at night and thought it would be quicker getting a hotel in Negombo rather than travelling to Colombo. The trip to the Jetwing Lagoon took about 40 minutes and I think in retrospect it would have been better to go to one of the newer hotels in Colombo. The room was huge as other commentators have noted... More

As a Bawa fan, I booked a Bawa Room. The room was great--spacious with very nice semi-outdoor bathroom. The mattress was good too. For the dinner, I had some curry from the A La Carte menu. Food was good and price was decent. The hotel has a 100-meter pool, which was the largest i've ever seen in any Sri Lankan... More

Cuisine options include the Blue Lagoon restaurant and a unique restaurant called Geoffrey's Pavilion, offering Geoffrey Bawa's favourites.
