Had a great stay

Review by Shyamali-TAS Colombo, Sri Lanka

Jetwing Lighthouse, designed by a famous Sri Lankan architect, Geoffrey Bawa, is one of my favourite hotels. The hotel was super clean and beautiful. The entire staff is always very friendly and helpful...

The food was yummy but their À la carte prices are absurd. We had a great stay at Jetwing Lighthouse..!

An Amazing Stay

Review by 159caps Colombo, Sri Lanka

Their service is excellent even in this pandemic period. A very friendly and hospitable staff. They only had one masseuse in their spa and she did an excellent job...

Hats off to her. Their food was very good and had some varieties as well. They even had their own pet dogs in their premise and they are very friendly with the guests. Our stay their was magnificent!

Absolutely exceptional

Review by SLTraveller93 Colombo, Sri Lanka

Hands down the best hotel in Sri Lanka. I have been to almost all the high end hotels but never found a place as good as Lighthouse. Service, food, rooms are exceptional.

Especially after Covid many other hotels I went to was cutting down big time...

Not when it comes to Jetwing. Exceptional, will visit again for sure!

Not a soul in the hotel!!!

Review by nikitaburman Gurugram (Gurgaon), India

Not a soul in the hotel. Come only if you like absolute seclusion!! I loved the structure of the building. I mean it’s obvious that it’s a beautiful architecture...

But just 1 restaurant is functional off all the restaurants and bar. Everything is shut. We went to the spa twice but no one was there. The pools are absolutely empty too. People are sweet. But we wanted some activity happening that’s why we picked a hotel over more affordable Airbnb’s. But it’s like an Airbnb experience in the hotel. It almost is like the whole hotel to us.
