“Pure Heaven”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

Myself and my Husband came here for a couple of nights on our honeymoon in 2007 and it was pure luxury and heaven. The open air bathroom was stunning and the butler service was lovely. We got on so well with him. The food and restaurant where amazing and the whole experience was unforgettable. I would highly recommend.

We spent four days in a forest bungalow and we enjoed the experience to live into the jungle with all conforts. The private pool, the confort zone, the bathroom in the open air, and sleeping room at the second floor with its balconies made our stay memorable. The staff is friendly and pampered us.

Being a very unique property in this area trying to deliver different guest experiences at all times, our breathtaking wetland eco system and the design of the hotel structure plays a big role in our reputation as a stellar hotel. It is no wonder that during your four days in a Forest Dwelling you have taken some good memories back home with you.

Congratulations to Jetwing and to the architect for having such great eco-vision. Every detail was excellent. The location, accommodation, staff efficiency and friendliness was superb. The food was also very good (maybe a bit more variety for vegetarians...?) and the birdwatching and spa facilities excellent. I will definitely visit Vil Uyana again....and recommend it highly as a very peaceful and a wonderful place to re-energize.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for the time spent on this review of Jetwing Vil Uyana and posting it on Trip Advisor. We are glad to hear that you have enjoyed your entire stay with our warm unique brand of Jetwing hospitality.

We agree that in order to create this fabulous property our architect has gone into every detail and we are proud it was a Sri Lankan that created this incredibly unique property, which definitely contributed to winning Sri Lanka’s Leading Boutique Hotel at the World Travel Awards last year.

Being an eco resort means our priority and focus is on conserving the environment and its heritage, however we make sure it is not only by us but our guests who patronize our property also participate with many green activities.

We will share your thoughts with the rest of the hotel associates and would like to have the chance of welcoming you again at Jetwing Vil Uyana.

Yours sincerely,

We loved our first accommodation at this place. A beautiful 'marsh dwelling' where we could watch some amazing wildlife from its balcony and plunge pool.
Food was great. Tours were great, but as in other Jetwing Hotels they were quite expensive and it would have been better to book them independently before staying at the hotel.
Small points of frustration for us, were our free room upgrade to a water villa- this room had no plunge pool and was further from the restaurant/reception area and we failed to see how it was in anyway better than our otherwise identical marsh dwelling; the pretty average wifi (our water villa had no wifi at all though it was meant to); and the lack of any real honeymoon treats (which we found consistently across Sri Lanka- but something small would have been nice).
Staff were great though, very friendly and helpful, wildlife was amazing and we did truly enjoy our stay here and would recommend it to others. Was a great place to unwind.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. All your comments and thoughts are constructively taken and our team has been alerted to the particular points that you have mentioned.

Water Dwellings are one of the most requested and demanded rooms at this hotel due to its unique features and perfect location. However the architect decided not to have a plunge pool with the dwelling as it stands on the water.

We are so proud of our associates as they always bring us complements through their excellent performance and hospitality. We at Jetwing Vil Uyana are blessed with very positive minded associates and excellent training and development department so that the right mix creates an unbelievable end result.

Please do contact us for any assistance that you may need in the future at Jetwing Hotels. We look forward to welcome you again at Jetwing Vil Uyana in the near future.

The hotel, Jetwing Vil Uyana, was excellent! The staff was professional, friendly, and helpful. The hotel is also located within close proximity to sites, but is secluded, so it feels like you are out in the wilderness. This is a beautiful hotel property. Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: Some rooms are located on the water. Some are located in the forest with private pools. I am sure...

This place really rocks. Was on a vaccation with my family & i loved every moment of my stay. I got a villa with a private pool, right in the middle of a rice field. Amazing view out of the balcony. Liked the concept of having an open shower area. Spacious bedroom on the first floor. The staff was very polite & helpful.
If there is something which has room for improvement, it is the dining outlet. There is only one restaurant in the resort & with limited options. Dont have any restaurants in the near vicinity so you have to eat in the resort.

Room Tip: Choose a villa depending on your preference - in the rice field or over the lake.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for sharing your Jetwing Vil Uyana experiences on Trip Advisor. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us.

Accommodation in the middle of a paddy field is a life time experience, and when it is the barefoot luxury offered by Jetwing your stay is made even more memorable. As you already know we do cultivate our fields using real methods of a proper farming village right up until harvest. There are two seasons for paddy cultivation in Sri Lanka and we just harvested for the first season for the year 2012.It was not only cultivation, but also educating children on Sri Lankan traditions and allowing our guests to join with us for an authentic experience are all reasons behind the event.

With regards to our restaurants, we are in the process of elaborating our existing dining options and introducing more dining experiences that will provide more variety. We do hope that you will come and stay with us once again sometime in the future as it was pleasure having you.

Yours Sincerely,

Priyanthika Wijenaike
