Clean comfortable and spacious accommodation
I was at Jetwing Lighthouse on 27th December 2019. It was my third time there. The highlights which I see in that hotel are there location (can reach with thin 1.5 hour drive), the rooms are very clean, comfortable and spacious. Lobby facing the sea is a nice place to relax specially in the evening.
Review for Jetwing Lighthouse
We had our annual sales conference in Lighthouse. Amazing experience in-terms of food and hospitality. Rooms were in excellent condition. Do continue to improve little bit more on process improvements in checkins apart from that 5 star experience
Iconic Hotel, Exceptional service
Lighthouse is one of the iconic hotels of Sri Lanka, designed by the famous architect Jeffry Bawa. Located in the colonial city of Galle in a pictures part of the beach, the hotel has two wings with 80 spacious rooms and 5 luxury suites, all with a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean (See the photos). Three of us stayed 3 nights in John Davy suite, which was huge, had all the luxury you need to get pampered and a butler service. The suit has a entry hall, a pantry room, living room, the bedroom, 2 balconies, an outdoor private pool, two toilets and a wardrobe and bath area with separate rain shower and a jacuzzi. It was well furnished and nicely decorated in colonial style. The small library had some interesting old books. The super friendly staff is the main asset of the hotel. All staff members including the GM Priyanthika, Front desk manager Dershika, Guest Relations manager Shakila were super friendly and taking care of guests and interacting spontaneously. Sajini and Kavidu from the butler department were also very helpful. Many staff members stay in the hotel and they look happy and enjoy working there. Breakfast has a good spread of local and international dishes. There are two outdoor pools, a gym and several restaurants and bars serving guests. Ayurvedic Spa Center in the hotel offers different treatment and massage options. Dr. Dilhani, the aurvadic practitioner provide free advice and guidance for treatment options. Our Ayurvedic oil massages and steam baths were very relaxing. The hotel beach area is rich of marine biodiversity. It has rocks, a sandy beach and sand-reefs full with varieties of small crabs, fishes, sea grass, weeds, corals, shells and urchins. Hotel naturalist Anoma gave me an excellent guided tour explaining the marine environment, rock formations and different marine species. We also had a educational river boat trip along the nearby river, through the mangroves, watching many endemic and migratory birds. The hotel has a sister hotel called Kurulubeddha (birds-forest) with 6 cabines in jungle setting near the river. This is an excellent hotel to spend some quality time relaxing or doing some activities. We will definitely return and it’s highly recommended.
Three fabulous days (nights) starting from 30/1 to 2/2 as wedding guests. Excellent service by the staff - namely, Reception, butler service, housekeeping. One staff member even ironed my dress for me as I was running late for an event. Customer service at its best. Impeccably maintained rooms. Very spacious and comfortable. Sadly, I cannot say the same about the extremely sullen, unwelcoming restaurant staff. Mainly the stewards. Where did the training go wrong in this dept.? Had to put up with this over three breakfasts. Aside from that, a great hotel.
Excellent service, beautiful peaceful atmosphere and tasty food..
We stayed at Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel for 3 nights during our vacation to Sri Lanka. The room was very comfortable spacious and modern. All the necessary amenities were present and perfect. Beautiful sceneries were breathtaking. I must definitely mention the service which was excellent. Lovely food to match the perfect sunset in the horizon..wow what a beautiful unique hotel with that unique staircase ... We loved the pool area and access to the beach. Thank you all at Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel for your wonderful service and beautiful smiles. We will most definitely be back during our next vacation. Keep up the good work.
