About Jetwing Lighthouse


With its rich, multiethnic background as a merchant, Jetwing Lighthouse boasts its perfect location embracing a rugged outcrop along the coastline just before the city center. 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.

Good view, relaxing and breakfast is nice
We totally stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed every day and moment here with lighthouse. Although it was bit expensive for us, it's quality, room view and facilitates are worth it. I will take my families here in the future of come back to Srilanka again. Thanks.

Fantastic hotel with great view and service
Jetwing lighthouse was the best hotel we stayed in Srilanka. Although it is expensive for us, the quality, facilitates,service and view are very worth. We booked Delux room and the hotel upgrade it to honeymoon suite with congratulation cake and fruits inside. What superize us most is, the suite covers the whole corner of the floor we were and has another separated door. Our room is surrounded by the sea and swimming pool. The lighthouse is closed to Galle fort, train station and bus station. It serves best breakfast buffet and dinner. The only negative thing is, the sockets are not enough, particularly in the bathroom area.

Scenic location
Nice old style sprawling hotel, well located on rocky bluff overlooking Galle beach and fort (in distance), very large rooms and spacious bathrooms and sizeable balcony - all with ocean views. The reception area is large and leads to an open air seating area with 180 degree views to rocky bluff and ocean. The two pools are large but the tiny beach is not for swimming, too dangerous with big surf and rocks. The buffet breakfast is excellent and the food is good overall. The staff are attentive with reasonably quick service. Menu n food prices are competitive with other hotels of similar rating. Relatively quite except for the road noise at first daylight with the buses competing for passengers up the Galle-Colombo coast road. The complex is not overcrowded like some resorts and you can have a relaxing time with family without having to compete for lounges by the pool. Overall a great stay for a couple of days.

Disappointing experience
While we loved the location and in general the staff was helpful. But the food was pathetic, particularly the breakfast. The chef was not cooperative even when we repeatedly complained about the food being cold. The GM too was not really concerned about the customer satisfaction. On the housekeeping front, the pillows were extremely uncomfortable and it took several calls before they managed to change the pillow.

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
