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!!!
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.
An experience in Hospitality
Our trip to Sri Lanka started at Galle. We had booked at Jetwing Lighthouse. I can never forget my visit to the place, ever. Right from the helpful staff who were helpful no matter what and were forever accommodating, to the place itself, I enjoyed every bit of it. The rooms of the hotel were spacious and the architecture of the place caught even my inexperienced eye as something special. The view of the beach from the room was another thing which I can never forget. Waking up to watching the waves dancing outside the window is not something which I have done before. Coming to the staff, I have to make a special mention. This was my first trip to the place and I knew very little about it. With all that, the entire staff seemed determined to make our trip a memorable one and they succeeded. They introduced us to Mr. Anoma, the in-house naturalist. Being in Sri Lanka, the nature of the place is what makes it so special. Mr. Anoma has nearly fifteen years experience of studying the natural habitats in Galle and he very happily shared his experience with us. Right from whales to corals, he knew it all and he explained it to us too. The boat ride in the mangrove where we saw countless varieties of birds I had never seen before or the water monitor was a highlight. The beach trail around the hotel showed the flora and fauna of the sea there. Back to the hotel, the weekend had been special with a gala party and a nice dinner, which was a very unique experience for us. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
Great hotel for weekend out
I was surprised to see and feel I got up next to the beach. Hotel view is absolute perfect with rooms leading to sea view. Although Hotel is built in a height room view make it very close to the beach. Grandchildren had fabulous time in the beach and in the pool. Very friendly staff and excellent food
Beautiful hotel and location, super helpful and friendly staff
I stayed here for 5 days in Aug 2021, as a solo female traveller. The buildings and rooms are spacious, clean and decorated in exquisite taste. The bed was super king size, with a very comfortable mattress. The room had central a/c, which meant that even when I wasn't there, it kept the room cool and dry, which is very important being smack bang on the Indian Ocean coastline. All rooms have sea views and the two huge swimming pools are to die for. They have tried really hard to keep the carbon footprint down, and generally a lot of thought has gone into the building and the day-to-day running of this hotel. Unfortunately the food was really a let down, but since I'd been here before, I knew not to rely on that and I ate outside. It's a beautiful and peaceful place to relax and recharge your batteries.
