Jetwing Lighthouse is an amazing hotel and I highly recommend staying here. We were here for our honey moon and got an upgrade which was so nice of them. The safe are very helpful and very nice. The buffet was one of the best we had experienced in Sri Lanka.

Its a beautiful hotel in a good location. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. The food was very good. However the service was very slow and not efficient. The hotel is beach front but the sea is very rough and you can swim.

Really tricky review this one as there are parts we loved and parts we hated. There are two distinct areas - the main hotel, where we stayed, and the Club rooms. We were not aware of the Club facility (more fools us) when we booked so had we been there we would have enjoyed it more. So the good bits:...

The hotel is very spacious and tranquil. Our room was large with a beautiful bathroom, walk in shower and a large wardrobe area which was able to take all our suitcases and clothes so that our room was luggage free and gave a feeling of unhindered expanse which was most relaxing! There is a beautiful swimming pool in which I...

We visited the hotel as part of our visit to the nearby hotel, Jetwing Kurulubedda. This is my second visit to the Lighthouse after 10 years. As expected, hardly anything has changed over the years and the service was superb as usual. We had lunch and dinner from the hotel and needless to say they were superb with a good...

This is always one of my favourtie hotels to visit in Sri Lanka. It blends beautifully with its coastal surrounds and is very close to the Galle fort. The rooms are stunning and the pool facilities are beautiful. The food is great too, the dining area has amazing views of the ocean.
