    Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel”

    Excellent service, great rooms. Pool facilities and beach area very good. All restaurants were excellent, especially the Cinnamon Room fine dining, which had an extensive wine list.
    Lack of 'Theme' nights such as BBQ/Seafood etc. Also limited communication in terms of the buffet night which was changed from Saturday to Friday, so we missed it. We appreciate that it was 'Off-Season' and occupancy was low, so this may be the reason.

    All in all the Lighthouse hotel was more than we expected. The level of service, quality and overall ambience was excellent. We were very well treated. The spa treatments were exceptionally good value. We chose the Lighthouse Hotel, with the need to completely relax following a very hectic six months, this was achieved and we have returned to work completely relaxed. The only downside of the Lighthouse Hotel is that with the exception of a few tours, there is very little to do in the town of Galle. This extends to a limited number of restaurants, most of which where in Galle Fort. We were expecting to have the option of dinning in the surrounding local area to sample and taste local cuisine, unfortunately this was not possible. Apart from this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jetwing Lighthouse, and would plan to visit again, probably at the end of a tour of Sri Lanka.

    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.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jetwing Lighthouse. Every room has a great view of the Indian Ocean. Walking distance from Galle Fort. Great Spa services. Lovely to relax in the afternoon on a lounger between the pool and the Indian Ocean. A 5 km Tuk Tuk ride to Unawatuna Beach, which is utterly beautiful & a little less wild for swimming than Galle Beach.

    We stayed for 5 nights at Jetwing Lighthouse. We really enjoyed our holiday there. The room and the hotel are beautiful with lovely expansive grounds and many options for food. The staff were so helpful always happy to entertain our children. There are two wonderful pools and the beach along with the rock pools to explore. We would certainly consider coming back. It is in a great location to use as a base to visit Galle but be apart from all the crazy traffic and noise.

    Perfect hotel and a perfect stay!”

    The best thing about the hotel was the location, the service, and the food. See below for more details!

    The Jetwing Lighthouse was an amazing hotel! From the moment we stepped through the door, my partner and I were treated like royalty. The beachfront location was beyond description and the building itself was spectacular. Our room overlooked the pool and the beach and was stunning. I have never slept in a bed so comfortable. The food was delicious, especially the Sri Lankan specialties off the menu (not to be missed!) and Robert Claesson personally made our anniversary unforgettable by giving us a solitary dining table under the stars. Thank you Robert! Our stay was perfect. We have no hesitation in recommending the Jetwing Lighthouse to anyone.

    An excellent choice”

    Jetwing Lighthouse offers fine views, a good location, well-appointed rooms, many friendly and pleasant employees and an exceptionally good fine dining restaurant: the Cinnamon Room. This is not a place for those who are not reasonably fit because there are lights of stairs to climb everywhere and no lift to use as an alternative. The stairs are not steep and most have decent railings...unfortunately a few have no railings at all which makes them somewhat less good for older visitors. The bathroom is large and excellent with separate tub and shower. The views from our windows and our French doors was spectacular and the sunsets each night made the visit worth it in yet another way. Breakfast is buffet but several items are cooked to order. You can eat inside or out. The pool bar is excellent with Surangha always willing to go out of his way to get you anything you might want. The spa is also excellent with very good reasonably priced massages available.The two swimming pools are delightful to use on a hot day. And the great dining find is the second floor Cinnamon Room with its lovely gracious atmosphere, pleasant waiting staff and excellent food which would be at home in restaurants all over the world. The giant grilled prawns are exquisite! The wine list has some excellent reasonably priced wines. There are some ridiculously expensive ones, too, but you don't need to spend that type of money to have a good wine. It is to be recommended. I do not know why it is not more widely advertised as a good place to dine. All in all, this is an excellent hotel.

    It's an absolutely wonderful experience staying at Jetwing Lighthouse. The hotel is located right next to the beach where you can watch the sunset. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is amazing and every meal is a delight. There are two pools in the hotel, a tennis court and a gym which is alway quite vacant as there're just so many things to do!! The Spa is also a plus and their signature treatment "Marma" which includes the traditional Ayuveda massage is something you can't miss. Rooms are new and the balcony is always a great place for reading or just chilling

    Beautiful location, and gorgeous room”

    We booked the morning we arrived, for a very special price. The hotel is very large and grand, about 10 mins by car/tuk tuk from Galle fort. Our room was ready, and really great. Lovely colonial wooden shutters. The bathroom area was huge, and could be closed off by rolling door. This was needed as the toilet area had a see through glass door, which Had gaps top and bottom. Closing the wooden door gave a huge area though, with bath, and seperate shower area. The best bit for us, was the pool at sunset, right by the beach, swimming as the sun went down. Perfect! We were woken at 4am by a huge procession on the road outside, with loud drum music . Quite fun to watch, and not the hotels fault they came back again at 5am too. So left quite tired. Amazing breakfast buffet , we sat outside looking at the sea. Lovely hotel, not sure we would have the budget at full price, but good at £107 inc taxes! Great deal, thanks Agoda

    A brilliant hotel with friendly staff”

    Location, size of rooms, food, views

    We stayed in the Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel for 5 nights and had a fantastic time. The hotel itself is beautiful with spacious resturants, bars and sunbathing areas. The food was great with lots of choice and was inexpensive. We particularly liked the seafood nights where you picked fresh fish to be cooked on a BBQ, it waas delicious. We stayed in a deluxe room which was very clean, spacious and well furnished. The evening turndown service and fresh flowers were lovely touches. Overall, a very relaxing place to stay with great rooms, food and staff - highly recommended!

    the power of the sea”

    wonderful views and incredible rooms
    The hotel itself is wonderful. However, if you like to swim on a beach and want a beach front hotel this is not the one for you. The nearest swimming beaches are 5 km away in one direction and about 30 km in the other.

    Galle was our last stop on our trip to Sri Lanka and our three nights at the Lighthouse were wonderful. I am a huge Geoffrey Bawa fan (the architect) and here one can see his mastery at play again. View corridors and shifting axes all through the property are wonderfully powerful and subtle where they need to be. The rooms were great - bathrooms opening up into the room to let in the views and natural light. The food was spectacular (contrary to previous advice from other travelers) and the breakfasts in the morning next to the crashing waves of the rocks was wonderful. All in all, a great place to stay.

    Tropical Architecture and great service”

    The Jetwing Lighthouse is not the newest hotel, but the combination of its great architecture and how it blends into location so well make it feel very contemporary and welcoming (more so that some more modern hotels). We had an ocean view and you could always hear the waves which was wonderful alongside the really warm and efficient service we received throughout the trip. One final thing, the pool was great too.

    One of my favourite in Down South Sri Lanka”

    quick to reach from Colombo, architecture blending perfectly with location, scenic, beautiful

    very close to galle, a town full of history and traces of the duch colonial empire (the fort is a must visit). hotel is located right on the sea shore, elevated with lovely view. rooms are excellent, service and kindness of the crew is of the best sri lankan standards. very nice spa and pool amid palms and a huge green garden overlooking the beach. dining is of good quality as well. the architecture of the hotel is also very particular (one of jeffrey bava's designed hotels)

    Simply amazing!”

    Great food, lovely Coats of Arms bar and brilliant staff

    We were travelling around Sri Lanka and decided to stay in Galle for a night. Booked this through a flash deal and therefore got an excellent price. Our stay here could not have been more perfect. From the reception to the beautiful room to the very tasty buffet, all our needs were catered for. Would recommend everyone to stay here if they have the time and money.

    Lovely hotel and service with a smile everywhere”

    Excellent food. Administration, Front Desk assistant manager and G Manager are very cooperative.

    My stay was for 7 nights. It was the 7th hotel to stay in SriLanka. The front desk assistant manager was very friendly and helpful in cheking in and out and also in showing us around. All the staff was great and lovely whereever you go. The food was excellent. The people who are working in the resturant are very cooperative. The Deluxe room which I stayed in was clean. You can see the ocean as if you down near the beach. The Hotel has 2 swimming pool, one of them is near the beach. The beach is rough and not suitable for swimming. 2 days before my end of stay I was generously offered to move to Jetwing Lagoon in Negombo to be close to the airport, and that a great idea. The General Manager is always around looking to make sure the stay of the guests are pleasent.

    Excellent hotel in a beautiful location”

    Bars, food and swimming pool

    This hotel is beautifully laid out with an amazing swimming pool looking out onto the beach. The food is excellent and you can have a drink looking out onto the ocean which is amazing. Galle Fort is very close and worth pottering around. Also if you want lively bars and restaurants visit Unawatuna, really laid back beach bar area on a lovely beach.

    Beautiful accomodation by the blue ocean”

    Dining area by the shore of white waves and blue ocean with excellent personalized service

    Place was easily found as it's located on the roadside of Colombo-Galle route. There was no queue or wait at the check-in reception as someone immediately took me upstairs passing a really unique design staircase to a big verandah facing the blue ocean. One of the lady staff arranged the check-in while I enjoyed the magnificent ocean view drinking a nice welcome fruit juice. All in all, it was one of the best check-in I have ever had. Room was excellent with ocean-view private balcony facing the blue swimming pool. Dining was a very enjoyable experience as the ocean-view restaurant people gave their best effort to customize my taste.

    Beautiful Location, Lovely Hotel, ”

    Beautiful sea side location, Service with smile, Good Accomodation

    Stayed one night in this hotel during our short visit to Galle. Hotel accomodation was excellent, staff was wonderful, Good breakfast. Hotel setup for reception is not the ideal, though does not effect any guests. Restaurant facilities was great too . My only comment for this hotel is the room rates are bit higher when compare with similar hotels in asian reigon. Something managment and entire tourism organization of Sri Lanka that needs to consider attracting tourists.
