Jetwing is the luxury resort chain of Sri Lanka. This property is set in a remote and serene wetlands location about 5km from Sigirya. We stayed in one of the "normal" rooms and paid about USD 250/night with breakfast. Most rooms however are chalets with their own pool and significantly more.
What is good: This resort manages to get most of the details right that a luxury resort should. The room was tasteful, spacious and always immaculate. Grounds of facility very nice with surprisingly good wildlife viewing. Restaurant makes truly excellent food. The food and bev price markup of roughly 75% above "street price" is offset by the very high quality and generous portions. Breakfast very generous. Tip: if you are up for it, order the sri lankan rice and curry option for breakfast, and you get a slightly stripped down version of the extremely tasty version from the dinner menu - included in your room price!
What is not so good: very remote location means you are captive and it is inconvenient not to take all of your meals at the hotel. Hotel staff not that adept at helping with unusual requests. Excursions offered by hotel to area attractions are very expensive.
Tips: if you are a bit more rugged, avoid the hotel excursions and walk up the 1km to the main road where you will be quickly picked up by a tuk tuk. We consistently paid only 450 Rps to Dambulla, 300 to Sigirya.
