I generally do not like big hotels, but this one is an exception. Built by Geoffrey Bawa this hotel has it all. From the outside it looks somewhat austere, but with beautiful views and dramatic confrontations with the ocean. The rooms are a very pleasant surprise with a tasteful eye for detail. Service is as good as it can get...

This hotel is in a gorgeous location along the coast in Galle. It was designed by Geoffrey Bawa and the design is stunning with a magnificent staircase as you enter that takes you up to a lobby area with magnificent views.

As with all hotels used in Sri Lanka the great asset is the staff and food and the JetWing Lighthouse in Galle is no different in this regard. Dinner on the balcony overlooking the ocean with a nice chilled wine was the superb way to finish a day of sightseeing in Galle. The rooms were magnificent with one of the...

I really like this hotel. We stayed at the place in December 14 with our three young kids. The hotel gave us a fantastic room for the family (a suite connected with a normal room!). We all loved it. The lighthouse however is not a place for a beach holiday. Its good for exploring Galle. Swimming in the ocean is...

What a truly wonderful place this is. Set by the beach in natural surroundings. Clean, extremely friendly staff, and the restaurant food excellent. They catered for all types of food, and was served in a charming manner. The reception staff went above the call of duty to facilitate us.
