Jetwing Lagoon , Negombo Sri Lanka, Colombo, Negombo & Around
This sprawling hotel is located in Negombo, just a half an hour’s drive from Bandaranaike International Airport. It’s got plenty going for it: the largest pool in Sri Lanka, a clever, characteristic design by architect Geoffrey Bawa, and a fabulous location on a lagoon with a lovely private stretch of beach.
Bawa’s artchitectural style is quintessential, and the design of the hotel is such that you always feel like you have plenty of space. Jetwing Lagoon is quite well-known for its Ayurvedic Spa menu and wellness treatments. Negombo is about 15 minutes away by car, but there isn’t a lot to do there for tourists. Instead, indulge in water sports on the lagoon or beach, treat yourself to a spa treatment, deliberate over which pool to swim in this time around, or just relax on the sprawling green grounds after a long journey.
Choose from Deluxe, Bawa or Family rooms, or opt for an elegant suite with graceful furnishings and plenty of space. All rooms feature fabulous water or garden views, spacious modern bathrooms and beautiful antique furniture.
Jetwing Lagoon isn’t the place to come to be in the thick of it in Sri Lanka. Instead, it’s the perfect place to unwind after some serious travelling, either at the beginning or right at the end of your Sri Lankan 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.
‘I cannot praise Harriet and her team highly enough for all of the help, advice and ideas which she and her team provided. It enabled us to experience the holiday of our dreams’
