Great place to relax for a few days. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Not a place for people seeking "action" but for those who like spectacular views and lazy days at the pools, wandering along the beach, enjoying the cafes in the fort at Galle.

      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

      Great location.. good rooms..well maintained.. with a few hidden dissapointments”
      Great location, great rooms, well maintained. A la Carte food at restaurant was excellent as was the breakfast buffet. However we had a bad experience with check-in and felt the hotel was overcharging us for early check-in and breakfast over that, due to the poor communication skills of their reception staff. The other disappointment was the Tuesday seafood buffet. the menu was extravagant at 6000Rs per person they advertised for tiger prawns, crab various fishes.. however we we're in for a disappointment. the prawns we're tiny and overcooked. there was no crab.. the chefs working the barbecue were rude. It seemed like they were serving us, like u would serve someone at a prison/homeless shelter(no offence). It was a total ripoff.. I would not recommend this buffet yo my enemy!

      Love my stay here. The room was warm and inviting. The bed was comfortable and cozy. I loved the dark wood and teal painted wooden doors. There was a balcony that overlooked the upper pool and down towards the lower one. The lower pool was perfect, deep and impeccably clean. Could enjoy the view of the ocean and the sunset. Quality buffet breakfast.

      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.

      The hotel was right on the beach and it was a lovely stretch of beach. Our room was big and comfortable with a view overlooking the pool and the beach. Food was good and reasonably priced. The hotel also offered tours with their resident naturalist Mr Anoma. He was great! We went on a river safari and also a whale and dolphin watching tour.

      A fantastic hotel to wind up your holiday around Sri Lanka. The staff very attentive to all your special needs with service with a smile. The spa and massage treatment is heavenly and best I have ever had. The food is excellent and dining experience being outdoors is very romantic and relaxing. The rooms are very airy and large overlooking the beach and sea. There are two swimming pools. The decor and setting is stunning. There is also a fine dining restaurant and bar with pool table.

      If you are a Bawa fan, this is a must to start with. The hotel is very well planned and have a great atmosphere. We fell in love with it right away. This hotel has a restaurant and lounge area facing the sea. Two swimming pools are near the guestroom area. One of them near the sea and spa. We stayed in one of the suites. Great value for money.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      it was normal, nothing great, nothing bad, no lift, was given a room on the third floor, no towel in room, tv remote didn't work, a little further from galle, alot of stairs, rainy season. i paid 200usd for a room with bb, which i a believe is very overpriced compared to other hotels you could find in hikkaduwa. further i booked 2 rooms and checked in at 12.30 am, i made a very humble request for late check out for 1 room when i made the booking and also in the morning over the phone, a person said he will try speaking to the manager, but unfortunately i had a person knock on both rooms at 12pm asking to vacate both rooms. so basically i paid a fancy rate for half the day and all i ever wanted was to sleep for another 1 hr lol...my bad

      well i would say it was average, i checked in at 12.30am, the people at the reception didnt have my reservation i was asked to email it to them, there were no towels in my room so i had to ask them for towels at 1am! i was traveling with 2 babies, and was given a room on the 3rd floor! no lift! alot of stairs to be taken and it was rainy so we are talking about slippery floors and and stairs and having to carry the baby stroller up and down the stairs is not an easy task. the tv had very limited channels, and worst of all our remote didnt work. couldnt be bothered asking someone to sort it out at 2am. and even when you press the on button it takes a while for it to get turned on. breakfast was good, very good variety but it was sad to note that they had to serve pork sausages, which was a total turn off for the majority of us and had to refrain from any of the cooked dishes.

      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.
