Reviewed January 25, 2014

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and absolutely loved it, Vil Uyana has a combination of being close to nature and hotel luxury that we've never experienced anywhere else. The different huts are set up so that you have an enclosed bedroom area and an open air living area with the shower, amenities etc. As most of the living area is open air you get wildlife such as bats, lizards etc coming to visit from time to time which is fun/scary depending on your viewpoint. The lake/marshland setting is absolutely beautiful and you can expect to see wildlife like peacocks and monitor lizards roaming around on a regular basis.

The food was very good and the staff very pleasant and helpful at all times. We had a massage at the spa which was excellent and thoroughly recommended and we also had a special evening meal up in a treehouse as it was my wife's birthday while we were staying which was a hilarious experience. Amusingly we were given a congratulatory cake on arrival for getting recently married and a another for my wife's birthday a day or so later so we were overrun with free cake! The location is great base for visiting Sigirya Rock fortress and Dambulla Caves etc.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to upload a review on Trip Adviser and we are grateful for your comments. JetwingVIlUyana is a unique experience on its own, greatly due to luxurious private dwellings and its proximity to Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka.

We are always honored when newly weds choose our property for their honeymoon and it’s a privilege to be part of such precious memories. Jetwing hospitality is renowned for its personalized touch and going the extra mile.

It was an absolute pleasure having you and we wish you both a world of happiness. Hope you will visit us again in near future.

Yours Sincerely,

Stayed in this lovely hotel in September 2012 but due to illness have been unable to review until now. The staff spoilt us with a beautiful cake to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and our rice paddy bungalow was equipped with a great little plunge pool. This was a brilliant base to explore all the historical sites nearby. A visit to Polonnaruwa and the spectacular cave paintings at Sigriya Rock are an absolute must.

We stayed here for 3 nights to allow us to visit the Dambulla Caves, Sigirya Rock and the historic city of Polonnaruwa, all doable from this base. The setting of the chalets is to be marvelled at- you cannot really be any closer to nature unless you were actually in a forest. The issue we had was with the design of the chalet - it was split into 2 levels with effectively the shower and bath being downstairs outside albeit with a partially covered.this included your kettle for making drinks but the tea and coffee was upstairs where the bedroom was. The fridge was actually outside the front door! All of this made it a little awkward for us. So we never felt settled in there which was a shame. The food was excellent however but be prepared for very pricey wine. Lastly, be prepared for occasional wildlife visitors to the downstairs area!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to write your review of your stay on Trip Advisor. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed location, food and services provided during your stay.

Our property is a unique experience on its own, greatly due to luxurious private dwellings and its proximity to the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka. One of the unique features of the hotel is our unique design and the different category of dwellings starting from Garden, Marsh, Paddy, Water which is a one common area with a open concept where you can find all in one. But the Forest is a Duplex building as you have mentioned with the Bed room wit attached toilet upstairs and the vanity area is down stairs with open concept. These dwelling provides you different experience in each location.

How ever we are disappointed to hear that you have not enjoyed the accommodation provided. We do apologize for ay inconvenience caused, though it’s the interior setup of the Forest Dwelling. We will look in to this issue which you have mentioned and further action will be taken to ensure that such disappointments will not occur with future guests.

We trust that you would return again to our little paradise and await to welcome you on your next visit.

Yours Sincerely,
Indika Gamage

This resort was the highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. The manager Priyanthika Wijenaike and head waiter Nandana went out of their way to ensure a memorable experience. I would highly recommend it. The peacocks are magnificent.

Room Tip: The forest room was very private and peaceful.
