We stayed here for two weeks. The room was spacious with a very generous bathroom area, although it took a while to get used to the clear glass toilet door! The balcony was sunny, spacious and overlooked one of two pools and the ocean. It is perhaps a little tired but nevertheless was very comfortable and cleaning services were excellent....

The Lighthouse Hotel outside Galle was as good as we remembered from 2010 when we had an extended stay owing to the Icelandic volcano. An excellent sculpture on the way up from Reception is part of the Bawa design which overall has an enduring stylish appeal and sets the calm less-is-more tone found throughout the hotel and grounds. Food was...

All rooms have views of the sea, large pool and pleasant gardens. However sea bathing at this site can be...

Our room was in the Lighthouse Club, which is attached, but essentially an extension to the main hotel. The room was fantastic with a beautiful balcony, very comfortable bed and interesting bathroom and dressing area all immaculate. The stairs and corridors were quite industrial and not up to the same standard as the rooms. There is a restaurant in the...

Sadly, I stayed only one night at Jetweing Lighthouse. The hotel is situated directly at the sea and rooms have stunning views to the ocean. The room was huge, very nicely decorated with many beautiful details and fully equipped (TV, AC, minibar, bath tub, shower, fruit basket). My room was on the ground floor and came with a big veranda...

Situated on a stunning viewpoint away from the main town, lovely private beach and super well kept gardens. We had a large room close to reception, not in the main block near the pools. The furniture was all mahogany and some superb attention to detail within the room, well stocked mini bar, the best we have seen. Very quiet and...

The hotel is very good. Rooms were large and clean, with a great view of the ocean. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have tasted in Sri Lanka, the staff was super nice and attentive. The gym is well equipped. We liked it.
