Vil Uyana is most certainly the crown jewel of the Jetwing Hotel group (Blue and Lagoon are also fantastic. I look forward to staying at Yala and Lighthouse). When Jetwing first developed the hotel they really came through on their Corporate Social Responsibility, training local people to work in the hotel, feeding back into the community that they chose to join.
As per Jetwing's ethos, you experience true Sri Lankan personalised service here, the hotel - from it's setting; decor to staff and food are nothing short of spectacular and incredibly authentic.
Vil Uyana is close to Minneriya National Park so make sure you book a jeep safari to go and see the 250+ elephants. When Vil Uyana as being made, they found Lorises on the site, so they stopped the construction of an additional 4 villas in order to maintain the habit for these adorably hilarious creatures so make sure you take an hour out in the evening (a great thing to do before dinner) to go around the Loris reserve with the hotel's resident naturalist (incredibly friendly and knowledgeable).
I'll be surprised if you ever want to leave.
