The hotel is located on the cost, just 3/4 km away from the city with a beautifully ocean view.
Rooms are very nice and equipped with colonial style furniture, in particular bathroom is quite big with both shower and bathtube.
There are two swimming pools, the nicest is located in front of the beach.
The restaurant has a fantastic view on the sea, it offers a very romantic dinner with all the lights on the rocks (sri lankan food is good but grilled seafood is very bad, don't order it!), and prices are low (10/15 euro per person with drinks other than wine). Breakfast is excellent.
Definitely good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the first floor with the sea view and don't take rooms on the ground floor (they're wet and smelly

The lighthouse is the best hotel i have ever stayed. It offers a great standard of service without being over bearing and snooty. The hotel is beautiful and clean, the swimming pools are gorgeous and the sea view very evocative ... I would highly recommend and would return if i come back to Sri Lanka

My wife and I recently stayed at the lighthouse for the first week of our honeymoon on a bed and breakfast basis. We felt the hotel lived up to and surpassed our expectations. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was spotlessly clean. Rooms were serviced twice per day. Overall we have no complaints. There was some building work at the lower pool, however this could not be heard at the top pool or in the rooms, and part of our room was facing it. There was some noise if you we're at the bottom pool but it wasn't too bad, and should be nearing completion soon.

One aspect that impressed us was the quality of the cocktails, particularly from the pool bar, with all fresh ingredients, this kept the wife particularly happy. The food was also fantastic, both in the buffet breakfast, evening a la carte, and the pool bar. whilst in hotels it is more expensive than locally, it was still good value. We only ate in the hotel a few times as we wanted to explore the fort and local area but every occasion was excellent.

We feel we were treated very well and as it was our honeymoon we were given a complimentary 60 minute massage, which was one of the best we have had in a long time. We were also given a complimentary candle-lit dinner which we had on our last night, to round up our first week.

One thing to note, if you're inking if going to galle, a new express highway is due to open soon which will reduce the transfer time from Colombo from 3 hours to 1.5 hours. However we feel our week in Sri Lanka was well worth the mammoth trip from the uk and can't wait to go back in the future and explore more of Sri Lanka.

Room Tip: We had room 423 which was amazing with large corner balcony and fantastic views but all rooms seem to be pool and sea-facing

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your very kind and detailed review on Trip Advisor. Jetwing Lighthouse indeed is a fantastic honeymooner get away with the stunning views and the many facilities we have. Couples can choose to sit by either of our pools while taking the rays in, or simply decide to go for a couples massage at your very popular spa, the choice is entirely yours.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we do hope to see you back at Jetwing Lighthouse in the future. We wish you all the best of luck for your new life together.

Ayubowan,

This was the best hotel my wife and i stayed at during our recent holiday in Sri Lanka. Situated beside the ocean there great views from the bar or the balcony of your room. The food, particuarly the buffet dinner was excellant with a wide variety of food. The staff were very friendly and at checkin you were shown to lounge chairs and provided with a cool cloth and complimentary drink.
The bedroom and bathroom were both large and very comfortable.

Room Tip: All rooms will provide great views of the sea.

Dear Guest,

It is our pleasure to have satisfied you and that you thought Jetwing Lighthouse was the best Hotel in Sri Lanka. I am very pleased to hear that we were able to satisfy a guest, and I will pass on the compliments to the team.

We like to give our guests the space they require to relax and unwind, and that is the thinking behind the set up of the property. It is spread across a vast area and does not make a guest feel cramped for space. The rooms are spacious and able to cater to guests with a wide range of needs and wants. It is also blended in to the surroundings brilliantly to giving the guest the ideal escape that they are looking for.

We hope we can see you back soon to Jetwing Lighthouse in the future. I also thank you on behalf of the team for taking the time to place a comment on your experience on Trip Advisor.
