We went to Vil Uyana on our honeymoon on 12th June & stayed there for 2 days. Service is excellent from the moment we checked in. Food is delicious. Surrounding is amazing & best suited for honeymoon couples. Fell in love with the calm & peaceful surrounding.

A very relaxing and tranquil place to stay where you are at one with nature but still have all your home comforts.
We stayed on a half board basis and was particularly impressed with the quality of the food; especially at dinner. Service was efficient and friendly.
Very close to Lions Rock and Dambulla; we also visited Harulu Eco Park and Anuradhapura from here.
We had a driver with us who used the drivers accommodation and he was very impressed and well looked after.
Would recommend this hotel and stay here again myself if I was to return to this part of Sri Lanka

Room Tip: We had a paddy dwelling with plunge and despite backing on to the entrance was extremely quiet. Havi...

Dear Guest,

We are pleased that you enjoyed your experience at Jetwing Vil Uyana. Thank you for posting a review on Trip Advisor. The heart of the Jetwing brand provides unmatched Sri Lankan hospitality.
Our hotels are connected to nature activities which is why we have our own eco professional, the resident naturalist. Also the environment has been well settled for wildlife such as birds, butterflies, dragonflies and our very own crocodile. Also as you have mentioned the hotel is centrally located in the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka, where you could explore the whole area whilst rest and relaxing at Jetwing Vil Uyana. It is indeed a good base for the area.

Once again thank you for choosing Jetwing Vil Uyana as part of your holiday destination and we sincerely hope you will return to Jetwing Vil Uyana in the future.

Sincerely,

Priyanthika Wijenaika,
General Manager

Thanks to an offer by a Local bank & the Owners of Jetwing Vil Uyana, we had the opportunity of getting a 50% discount on the rates at Full Board Basis. This Vi Uyana Resort was not withing our reach previously to the average of US. $.500/- per night. My Family of five set out on 15th June, 2013 for our stay at Vil Uyana for the weekend. Thanks to a sunny day just after the heavy rains, and a great drive with hardly any traffic over the week-end.

We reached Vil Uyana at about 1430 hours. It was love at first sight. Just made us relax looking out at the settings of this truly wonderful country-side...SRI LANKA...A LAND LIKE NO OTHER. We were greeted in real Sri Lankan Ayubowan Style. Once we checked-in, we were taken to our Paddy Field Dwellings by the Buggy. Just a short distance. We were thrilled to see our spacious dwellings with a Plunge-in Pool, (Private).

This is the place for peace & tranquility. Excellent Room Service, Very co-operative & obliging Management. Food ordered two hours earlier arrived on time. After a memorable evening & superb food we retired for the night.

I was woken up by the chirping of the birds from the wild life sanctuary, at 6.00 in the morning. just by the side of our dwellings. To get a clear sound of the chirping, I knocked off the A/C and the fan and went out into the Patio. I see the beautifull Peacock in its lovely colours. I took lots of photographs. I spend my time on the patio lying on the sofa, looking up into the Blue Skies. Large white clouds passing by, the chirping of the birds. This was really paradise, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

We left Vil Uyana after our Lunch, and all along the way in our Buggy, the family members in a cheerful mood were greeting the Vil Uyana Staff along the way, congratulating and thanking them for an excellent service, and great food.

Back to Colombo, but Vil Uyana will always be on our minds. We have travelled right round Sri lankaover the past few years, but this trip will be hard to erase from our minds. We are definitely going back some day.

Room Tip: Paddy Field Dwellings were suitable for our family, as we were away from the main buildings and oth...

I went to Vil Uyana on my Honeymoon about three weeks back and it was indeed an awesome experience. The service offered from the moment you enter the hotel till you leave is truly amazing and is a very good benchmark for other hotels as well. The atmosphere , people , chalet and food is amazing and we fell in love with this hotel within a couple of hours. This was the first time I felt that my stay is too short and wanted to extend the stay badly.

We arrived on 11 June for a two day visit with our daughter and son looking forward for a well earned break for the family. Vil Uyana surpassed our expectations in everyway with tranquility, welcoming and friendly service, fantastic room and great food.

Vil Uyana offers a great opportunity to relax and unwind from the day to day city life in an atmosphere of wilderness while enjoying the essentials we are accustomed to, such as Wi-Fi to be still in touch.

The jetwing group's efforts to care for the environment and uplifting life of the rural community surrounding the hotel is commendable.

It will be a favourite place to revisit.

Room Tip: Paddy rooms close to the reception have an easy walk for meals.

Been there 5 times already, and loved every minute of it.

Easily one of the finest hotels in Sri Lanka, and definitely the best in the large Jetwing chain.

Absolute tranquility. Quite indescribable really. Chalets surrounding a small lake. Paddyfields all around the hotel and also inside it. Totally silent, except for birdcalls - there's a huge range of birds around.

There are four types of rooms - two with pools and two without. All exceptionally comfortable and the ambience is amazing.

The food is amazing and so is the service. Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast at our own pool, delivered on golf carts by the excellent staff.

Water features everywhere in the hotel - ponds and pools.

The spa experience was also one of the best I've had in Sri Lanka.

Great for moonlit walks after dinner too. The best experience for couples.

Unfortunately, it now takes about 5 hours to get there from Colombo, because traffic keeps increasing and the road to this part of the country hasn't been widened. The hotel is also a bit pricey now, and I usually wait for the off-season for tourists and catch a discounted rate.

Will definitely go there again.

We arrived Vil Uyana 07th June,2013 with my family & friends. Its great just by the appearance of the Reception. A Warm welcome with a unique superb view.
I loved almost everything there... the view, the birds, the atmosphere, the wind, trees,a walk lake, lotus...everything. The extreme natural. The calm atmosphere itself drives your tired hectic lifestyle in colombo. An excellent place to have a good rest.

Thumbs up for Water Dwelling (Room no 112/111) & Forest Dwelling (Room no 132)...
Loved slow classical music at the restaurant.. A great photographic view.. Felt sorry when leaving..!!!
