Designed by Geoffrey Bawa, who is perhaps Sri Lanka’s greatest modern architect, this place has swimming pools, an outstanding spa, and a total of 63 rooms inclusive of three themed suites. Being the first luxury boutique hotel in Galle, Jetwing Lighthouse is proud to be member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Located in the southwest corner of the island, Galle is a 146km drive from the Bandaranaike International Airport, also known as the largest city in the south and one of great significance in many ways. Galle is a wonderful blend of culture, history, beauty, tradition, and everything in between.

Service can improve

good view, good food
the hotel is very good, however staff performance can improve. When we checked out, the staff told us cannot only pay cash, as card machine broken , in a bad manner. It is very unexpected for a 5 star hotel like this

The grand old dame is looking tired

1. Food is still good, 2. Room is still comfortable 3. Location as in position
The lighthouse is a nice hotel but looking tired. The floorboards in our room need to be re-done. The bed is still very comfortable but the noise from the highway permeated thru. I had specifically asked for a room with a sea view (and paid extra) thinking we would get one of the rooms closer to the reception but we got a room furthermost from the reception and close to the highway. Who wants to request a change of rooms when you are only there for one night and arrive at 8pm and late for the function? Service is non-existent as in we had to carry our own bags to our room. Only point that someone offered to carry our bags was when we brought it back to be loaded into our vehicle. Lighthouse is a 5* price, 1* service, 4* food, rooms need to be desperately refurbished.

Outstanding accommodation, facilites and service

The customer service was excellent, greeted with smiles and never too much they could do. The food was excellent. The hotel was very well appointed and spotlessly clean.
Three things that should be improved: The safe broke and we had several visits to resolve the issue. It was never resolved. The road is very close too the room san our room - 421 was very noisy. You should insulate the door and the window above. There is a temple across the road that streams its service all night long. In addition to this and the procession we got very little sleep on the last night (Friday 30th October). Finally wee were charged for use of the minibar, which we never used and didn't realize until on the way home. I emailed you about this and a USB drive that I left in the room. You did not reply.

Best hotel in Galle

Breakfast & Beverage, oceanview, design
Hotel was built near the ocean, has very beautiful view from rooms and restaurant. Beverage is tasty and not too expensive. We tasted all the mocktails amd all were good. Dinner was disappointing, maybe we ordered the wrong dishes. Breakfast is good. Room has very good view, with a balcony just next to ocean.

swimming pool , hotel condition, service
We are so lucky that they upgraded our room for a suite room for free. The swimming pool is very beautiful and the sightseeing from the room is so amazing.
