Sri Lanka, Colombo, Negombo & Around
Info : Jetwing Beach
Jetwing Beach is Negombo's most striking luxury hotel offering real comforts on the edge of the famous beach. The hotel was designed by Sri Lanka's late iconic modernist architect, Geoffrey Bawa and this is very evident in the characteristic play on light and space throughout.
Both the town and the beach have been gradually cleaned up, with hotel renovations helping to lift the reputation of this picturesque beach town. Jetwing Beach used to be the Royal Oceanic Hotel, and has since been completely renovated. Now a fabulous five star resort, it boasts several first class restaurants, a beautiful pool, and exceptional customer service. A treat for those seeking relaxation is the wonderful spa, and the fine dining is both intimate and refined, especially on the terrace.
The rooms at Jetwing Beach feature natural, earthy colours and soft decor, with loads of space and a guaranteed sea view from the balcony. The bath is definitely a highlight - large and spacious for indulgent relaxation sessions.
Children will love the resort’s second pool, which wraps around the building with plenty of space for play. Water activities are in abundance, with fishing boat trips along the coastal waters being a popular choice. Negombo is located just 20 minutes from the international airport, making Jetwing Beach a great and accessible option if you’re just getting started, or heading home from your holiday.
Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
- Airport transfer
- Laundry Service
- Outdoor Pool
All the hotels were excellent - lovely rooms, really friendly staff and some great Sri Lankan food, especially at Ulagalla, Kandy House and Tea Trails.
