As we have family /friends live in Galle a visit to Lighthouse is always for a swim and a meal. Sticking to the tradition we did the same this time but unfortunately only to get disappointed.

Gorgeous hotel right out on the promontory. Architectural gem with two lovely pools, small beach area,good bar and restaurants overlooking the sea. Rooms are spacious with sea views, balconies and air con. Waiting staff were lovely but reception hopeless if you need any advice on tours, sightseeing or booking tickets.

This is our favourite hotel in Sri Lanka, the welcome was wonderful and the service first class. Out of all the Jetwing hotels, this is by far the best. This hotel will be very memorable to us as my daughter's boyfriend proposed to her on the beach, so it will be a very special place for them too.

I know I sound like an advertisement; but, this is what I have come to realize. We all loved it. Only thing is: Be prepared, there's no lift! No lift :-) We had two rooms on level-4 and my...

Our hotel in town recommended this place for lunch. Not being familiar with the brand, we had no idea it was a big hotel - it was a pleasant surprise to learn it was Geoffrey Bawa-designed. It's a bit far out of town, but fine for a tuk tuk ride (and on the way are interesting sites like a Hindu...
