Jetwing Lighthouse

Settled along the diamond-like Indian Ocean on the outskirts of the Southern old-world city of Galle is Jetwing Lighthouse, crème de la crème of the beach rosary by Jetwing Hotels. The luxury boutique is flung on the sands of Dadella where the landscape is threaded with the affair of the heart of the sun and the sea.

Best Known For

Like any authentic lighthouse, ‘Jetwing Lighthouse’ stands in splendid silhouette against the fine summer sky, bathing in the gold of an ensemble of shapes, shades and sways that were once fantasied about in the blue-sky brain of Geoffrey Bawa, the most celebrated Sri Lankan architect.

The Experience

All 63 rooms at ‘Jetwing Lighthouse’ wake up to a bouquet of cascading artistic swirls and sun themselves in the picturesque blue seascape. The décor is a lacework of the traditional and the modern. The 60 deluxe rooms are sanctuaries of romance where luxury bathtubs and private balconies / terraces team up to take you on fantastic dreams soaked in sunsets and sea songs – unhindered by realities of grey colour. The 3 suites are rambling spaces kitted out with a bed room, Jacuzzi bathroom, lounge and a private balcony and are fondly named and adorned after 3 fearless globe-wanderers who traversed the Island hundreds of years ago. The ‘Fa-hsien Suite’ spray paints an aeon of Chinese Emperors while the ‘Ibn - Batuta Suite’ is steeped in Moroccan tunes; the ‘Spilbergan Suite’ washes its dwellers in a nostalgic rain of Dutch heritage.

‘The Cardamom Café’ rolls out a daydream of buffet spreads 24 hours while ‘The Cinnamon Room’ presents a posy of a la carte menus where lobster and shrimp has a role to play. ‘The Anchor Bar’ suns its aromatic world taking a fine seat between the pool and the ocean and rustles and shakes up a party of snacks, mocktails, cocktails and smoothies. ‘The Coats of Arms Bar’ pours out tip-top wines and spirits into elegant glasses in a setting made old-world with antique Sri Lankan and British heritage flags. Tuck into epic breakfasts and taste sunset drinks at ‘Nihal’s’ where a famed Sri Lankan culinary master makes magic. If you want to have a tryst with the sea while tucking into your dinner, dine between rocks under the star-flocked sky as the silver sea spray curls around your feet… this is the kind of night you might stray into a dance of mermaids…

Give the finishing touch to a colourful day at the spa of ‘Jetwing Lighthouse’ which is tucked in a tranquil corner of the seaward resort.

Around and About

In a mere 15-minutes’ drive from ‘Jetwing Lighthouse’, the Galle Fort unravels its old world basking in a historical patchwork of Portuguese, Dutch and British architecture. Stroll around and embrace the loveliness of a quaint clock tower, a three and half century old church, a lighthouse like a faithful reminder of the fort’s heyday, old-world houses and a bouquet of other colonial landmarks. In less than an hour’s drive from the resort are the laid-back beach town of Unawatuna and the picturesque lagoon town of Koggala – both of which holds plenty of paradise shades to set your feet dancing.

The gorgeous seaside Eden of ‘Jetwing Lighthouse’ takes a chair on the sun-kissed sands of Dadella, bejeweling the shores with its sumptuousness. The sea is a great ethereal gem brimmed with wine and fire. As the sunset turns the shore every colour imaginable, you wander through the twilight splendour with your loved ones…A summer like never before!
