We had a fabulous time in Galle staying at the Jetwing. It was the most relaxing place we have visited anywhere in the world. Yes a big statement but go try it, I'm sure you'll agree. Watching the magic sunset, going to sleep with the sound of the waves, it's great.

We were a group of 9 and this was our 3rd hotel in Sri Lanka and stayed for 8 nights. We were celebrating our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our stay was clouded by our experience on check in and the restaurant service on the 1st night. It took some serious words with the hotel manager and our rep to sort...

This was the final stop of our honeymoon trip to Sri Lanka, before moving to the Maldives. And we could not have asked for a more perfect send off. The entrance is beautifully impressive and our room was luxurious (the standard we had come to expect in Sri Lanka!) with breath-taking views of the sea front. Little touches, such as...

Good place to be. To be honest, we just went for a drink and an opportunity to experience the spaces and architecture. We were severely impressed and loved every single view point, detail and architectural and landscape proposition. Many excellent books have been written and photos published, however I feel that nothing comes close to the actual experience in person....

Definitely recommend this as a place to stay. Although a bit pricey, our guide Thomas Sam Samarkoon, thomas99sam@yahoo.com, was able to get us a significantly discounted rate. I am glad I followed his advice to stay here, as originally I thought it would be better to stay in the old town. The hotel is a quick tuk-tuk drive away from...

About 2k outside Galle. Comfy spacious room - nice touches like a cafetierre. Friendly staff ,interesting, architecture, beautiful grounds and swimming pools looking out onto the beach and waves. Food good - poolside snacks and the main dinning room were fine. Buffet or set meal. We were here for three nights and didn't try the fine dinning restaurant.

Wonderful hotel and location close to the ocean. Very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent amenities and recommend the hotel as a holiday location. Although the ocean is not appropriate to swim in, the large pools within the resort more than compensate.
