Nick and I chose to get married at the JetWing Sea due to ace reviews. The hotel is lovely and the staff are amazing. The food was fab and the beach was really really clean. We got married in the hotel, well actaully on the beachfront. We had a few hiccups along the way with Nick injuring his foot (won't say how), but the aftercare the hotel provided was really good.

Daphni our wedding planner was brilliant. The drummers and dancers were so cool, the cake yummy. The photographer and videographer were brillant. Better than I imagined to be honest.The weather was amazing too. Oh and the spa is fantastic.

We finished the evening with a 7 course candlelit dinner dinner ontop the rooftop overlooking the sea with Frank Sinatra playing in the background. They upgraded us to the honeymoon suit for free and gave us a pretty wedding gift too.

If you want to get married in Sri Lanka, chose the JetWing Sea.....they are fab !

Everything about this property is awesome. The very first impression was very positive. The front desk was extremely helpful, curtious and friendly. They actually went out of the way to get us a good room. We stayed in the Deluxe room and loved absolutely everything about it. Very specious room with the most beautiful view of the sea made our stay really memorable. The bathroom too was very spacious and was very well designed.

Speaking about the food, this place offers the most freshest seafood I have ever tried out. The battered fried prawns were so yummy. The lobster thermidor was absolutely out of this world and one of the best dishes of lobster I have ever tasted. I would not say the food comes cheap. But who cares as long as it tastes good and offer good value for the money you pay.

The overall experience was really great and would go to this place over and over again.

Room Tip: I would indeed recommend the Deluxe room

My extended family (about 15 of us) just checked out of Jetwings sea. It is a lovely resort with a beach view from the lobby and most of the rooms. We loved the Multi level Lobby/Resturaunt concept and the two pools were pretty nice too. They have a basic Gym facility on the 3rd floor and while the equipment is not great, the treadmills are nice and doing the 5k in the early morn with an elevated view of the sea was just a super experience. The breakfast spread was pretty good and the service was nice too. Cant say much about the Lunch/Dinner as we did not eat there.

Being Off season we got a steal of a deal at $115 per double room including breakfast. Overall we were very happy with the facilities/services and would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: insist on a sea view room

My friend and I were looking for somewhere to go that was hot, had good food and good spa treatments where it would also be safe for two females to be, as well as not being too costly!
We definitely achieved this....to the extent that we didnt actually need to leave the resort!

The food was excellent - the 4 course 'set' menus offered variety and were extremely well-presented and healthy and the themed food nights (Mongolian BBQ, International & Chinese) were plentiful & delicious. Sitting in the open air restaurant right by the sea was lovely. Breakfast was also a high quality buffet and catered for every taste - The Chef would often be seen interacting with the guests and ensuring that the food was to the highest standard.

We also opted for a spa package which allowed us to have facials, massages, reflexology and even a Thai massage - great to end the day with! I used the gym every morning - it was well equiped and provided towels and water and a sea view!

The staff were extremely helfpul and attentive, yes they do ask your room number when you order something but we did not find this offensive and it was done in a polite manner - they were also good at knowing what was going on with each guest- and executed any requests in a very efficient manner. They also put on non-cheesy entertainment every night.

The beds were really comfy, the bathrooms were great and the complimentary water & tea/coffee was thoughtful. The two pools were lovely, beach towels provided and there were plenty of staff around to make you feel safe.

This is not somewhere to go if you want a massive party, its quiet, serene, peaceful and good for the soul which is what we were after - and very reasonably priced too, we really felt we had a luxury holiday at a great price. Jetwing Sea did not disappoint in any way.... my only bit of advice if you are going there, is to take some ear plugs, as the road is quite noisy but this isnt the fault of Jetwing Sea!

Stayed for 1 night prior to our early morning flight back to Bangkok. We had booked a standard room, but arriving early at 12 noon, we were upgrade to a Deluxe room and promptly checked in.
The room was beautifully presented with a stylish modern bathroom,large comfortable bed and sliding doors which opened out onto the pool area. The hotel is right on the beach , however be warned that the beach on this part of the coast was much more rough and nowhere near as beautiful as other parts of Sri Lanka - we walked down to waters edge and a local boatman told us not to swim at that time, that the water was not clean and to wait a coulple of hours. The pool at the front of our room was a more than adequate substitute.
The hotel is only about a 10 minute walk down the road to a variety of restaurants and bars ( we had a wonderful meal at Lords Restaurant ) and used the hotels car service to get us to the airport for a 7 am flight. This hotel is a good option if you are looking for a hotel near to the airport , but to my thinking I wouldn't stay in Negombo for more than a night or two.
