“Bliss”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

This memorable hotel is so relaxing and calming. The route from the reception leading to the pool, restaurant (and library) is breathtaking with the layout of ponds. The luxurious, spacious and comfortable water villas overlooking the lake are fabulous to spot all sorts of interesting wildlife. The pool is gorgeous. Seriously delicious food and wine (Set menu was superb) . Wonderful spa. Attentive staff. If you are going to the Sigiriya fortress, arrive at 7 am when the ticket office opens. Not crowded then (and cooler!).

I did not want to leave this haven of peace and our two teenage daughters also loved it.

A truly fabulous place to stay.

I stayed at Vil Uyana for our first wedding anniversary. I have heard soooo many wonderful things about this lovely hotel, I was not disappointed even for a minute. It’s simply amazing. We got a Paddy dwelling which comes with a Plunge pool. It was just perfect and so peaceful. View from our room was breath taking. Hotel has looked into every aspect of the guest needs and it comes with little things like bamboo slippers/straw hats/ colorful sarongs/a Torch etc…. Staff are wonderful /very well trained and were very helpful/polite and discreet. They make you feel welcome and loved. It was such an amazing experience itself.

Hotel had arranged us a table by the pool for our dinner. (our room was decorated and we even got a cake wishing on our anniversary. All that without even requesting for any!!!!).
Candle lite dinner was an experience on its own. Food was mouthwatering. This place is just wonderful……..

Most of the time the pictures in the hotel website is not exactly what you get. But Viluyana is way better in reality. It’s so beautiful and picture square. Only regret I had was we couldn’t stay there longer. I will definitely visit Vil Uyana again and will recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Paddy dwellings come with a plunge pool.

I don't know how to explain how amazing this place is - the staff are attentive + thorough, our stilted bungalow was amazingly enormous and luxurious - walking from the bungalow to the restaurant was great fun + beautiful. The food in the restaurant, and their wine is fantastic. Very flavoursome (we're british of indian origin). We miss this place and always look back with fond memories.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for selecting Jetwing Vil Uyana as part of your holiday and for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor following your stay with us.

Jetwing Vil Uyana is a unique experience on its own, greatly due to luxurious private dwellings and its proximity to the Cultural Triangle. Indeed this is an amazing hotel as we are built in a man-made eco reserve and the environment is well settled for wild life

Once again thank you for staying with us and for your compliments. We are looking forward to welcoming you back to our little paradise for another memorable holiday.

Yours Sincerely,

We spent two wonderful nights at VU where the property was Beautifully landscaped with amazing private villas with plunge pools, an outstanding restaurant, topped off with a perfect spa. You couldn't ask for anything more. Friendly, personal, and a must stay when visiting the cultural triangle in Sri Lanka! I have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone visiting Sri lanka!
