Sanctuary in the Jungle”

Jetwing Yala with its swing seats overlooking the sea and set on the edge of the Yala National Park is indeed a getaway. The whole trip though only a weekend worth was just enough to go back to Colombo rejuvenated and well fed. The breakfast covers the whole range and is quite exciting to be having your cup of coffee and glass of chilled sweet king coconut on a deck overlooking the jungle with superb service. The safari ride which of course stands as the highlight of the trip is pure FUN! Book your own safari jeep, equipped with two chilled glass bottles of water (courtesy of the eco-friendly Jetwing Yala) and we were off. Our driver was an expert driver maneuvering through the difficult terrain and having his eyes peeled for elephants, wild boar, deer, peacocks and to our delight a leopard. Overall, worth the money and worth the 5 hour drive.

Fantastic hotel”

A hotel that gets everything right! Great facilities, a truely massive pool, a beautiful setting, lovely interaction with nature. Rooms are of a good size with a nice balcony and spacious bathroom. There is a definite focus on environmental responsibility which is great to see. We ate a mix of a la carte and buffet with all meals being enjoyable. Food price was also very reasonable. Staff were also great offering the extra level of service rarely found in hotels. Jetwing Yala is a hotel that gets how to provide a great experience Highly recommended!

Although the Yala National Park was closed and we couldn't go for the game drive, our stay in Yala was one of the memorable parts of our trip, thanks to Jetwing Yala. The staff and service are best. very helpful. The view from the room it self is worth the money. Spacious and well designed rooms. Good facilities. Worth the money.

Fantastic hotel with hospitality and details”

Friendly staff, attention to details and location

I had a fantastic stay at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel pays attention to environment protection. Little details reflect the management standard, e.g. Put towel against the balcony door in case the rain comes in (rain season now with heavy thunderstorms daily), post card with the guest name and bananas in the room. Bed is extremely comfortable, which is what you need after bumping safari drive. I would highly recommend this hotel to guests planning to visit Yala. The only shame is that hotel didn't inform guests upon booking that Yala is closed until Oct 15.

Great rooms, perfect location for safari, excellent food and espresso :)!!

We travelled 12 days and stayed in 8 different hotels in Sri Lanka. This one dedinetly made it to the top one. 10 min from Yala National Park entrance, with beach and extremly long pool. The breakfeast was huge and quality of food also for dinner was excellent. We finally again could enjoy good espresso :), which is not always easy travelling through Sri Lanka. Rooms are big, with bathroom nearly the same size as the room. People working in the hotel have been very nice too. Definetly a place to come back again!!!

Great spot for access to Yala Park Safaris”

Overall this was a great stay and this is a nice hotel to stay at while you're doing safari in Yala National Park. We have a 5 and 2 year old so we found there were a couple challenges. There are a few areas which could be a safety concern for kids, the koi fish ponds are beautiful but we were constantly having to watch if our youngest was going to fall in, koi fish are pretty exciting for a 2 year old. The second floor lobby area has a beautiful view but there is only a 2 ft tall flower bed between a child going over the edge, again only an issue for people with young children. The bar at this hotel was my favorite place. Very cozy and comfortable seating, nice music, good atmosphere. The bar could use some board games to help both adults and kids pass the evening in this environment The staff at this hotel are excellent and everyone went out of their way to provide great service. Rooms were very nice and clean. The food and beverages were always well done.

We wish we could have stayed longer ”

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was close to the entrance of Yala National Park and the team were kind enough to organise a packed breakfast for our morning safari. The room was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and tentative and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the chocolate milkshake!! Although we only spent one night here we really wish we extended our stay. When we return to Sri Lanka we will definitely come back for a longer period to make full use of the facilities. Thank you for our stay.

I couldn’t recommend this place any more - it is a perfect, luxury, eco paradise, set 5-10mins from Yala National Park, with all kinds of wild animals roaming through the grounds, near the infinite pool and on the beach - elephants, wild boar, monkeys (and cows)! The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. We extended our stay because we couldn’t bare to leave!

I enjoyed my stay at Jetwing. Buffet breakfast and dinner was fantastic all times. I loved the room and showers too. I did try to leave early by one day and that was no allowed via Agoda without me paying full price which I thought wasn’t excellent since the hotel wasn’t nearly full but I booked three days so I had to stay. Would have liked to try another city but oh well. Staff were great. Fun stay.

Excellent stay, the hotel was a breathe of fresh air, clean, amazing pool, close to the beach (which the hotel staff lifeguard), great rooms, friendly staff. We would have loved to have stayed longer but they were fully booked and we then stayed next door at laya safari, although this was still good it was definitely a step down from jetwing.
