Jetwing Vil Uyana

Jetwing Vil Uyana is Jetwings top property and as well a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Based on excellent reviews and incredible photos I arrived with high expectations.

I arrived late and after a drink and towel I was escorted to my room. A room which was quite a surprise, but first let me tell you about the service.

With only 25 rooms I had expectations for personalized service and the service was great. I was very impressed especially because of the lovely staff which all were SriLankans. I was told not a single foreigner worked in the hotel and that is indeed very impressive.

I stayed in one of their only four Water Dwelling Villas and it was incredible. Over water and uniquely over water. The Villa it self had a large open suite area with very comfortable bed, nicely designed bath tub and raining shower. All with a very nice and comfortable design.

Another thing I liked about Jetwing Vil Uyana was it’s food and the reasonable prices. In general around 50% less than similar hotels around the world and it was highly appreciated. The breakfast was among the best I’ve had in my travels. Only ala carte and Jetwing Vil Uyana could consider applying for Relais&Chateaux. The facilities were great as well with a nice gym and a spa with a SriLankan feel to it.

Overall a fantastic experience. What makes it special is it beautiful location, wonderful staff and great food. Would love to return. The value is incredible as well and I can’t recommend it enough.

My opinion: Great+ experience.
