The Jetwing Lighthouse is a beautiful hotel right on the water. There is no beach access and there are many rocks. There is a big drop off to the ocean and swimming can be dangerous. Note the wonderful staircase going up into reception. All rooms have patios or balconies with chairs, tables, and a lounge. There is free WiFi but...

Stayed here for two nights but I would have stayed longer time permitting. We stayed in a very nice room overlooking the pool. The breakfast and dinner buffets are both excellent and you can be seated outside overlooking the ocean. Only drawback is that ocean swimming is prohibited due to rocks and strong currents. On the flip side the pool...

We picked a room that faced the ocean and this was absolutely mind-blowing. The only thing that put us off is non-attention to details such as strands of hair of the previous traveller on a chair in our room. The cleanliness otherwise is very good. The food is wonderful and the spread amazing and the staff warm and helpful!

Enjoyed our stay ( 6 nights) at this magnificent 5 star hotel. From the moment of arrival after walking up the grand stair case to the first view of the ocean through reception you realise that you're in a very special place. The ladies at reception took great care of us with drinks and moist/cool hand towels. Our Dutch suite...

Nice hotel and very convenient to get to from Colombo. The staff was busy but friendly and helpful. I was here few years back and since then the hotel seems to have gotten a bit old. Food was ok, nothing exceptional for the price you pay. The food use to be really good. Their second pool is much better and...

At first, our travel agency picked the wrong deal - saying a deluxe room would fit for a couple with 2 kids. It doesn't´t, at least depending on what you want. The management handled it professionally, providing a great suite for a fair upgrade price. We had an excellent stay and would always come back. Probably a little bit more...
