Jetwing Hotel Flash-packer review
Bianca and I spent a few nights during our Sri Lanka trip staying in luxury and style!
We stayed at just two of Jetwing hotels thirty one hotels and resorts across Sri Lanka, Jetwing lighthouse in Galle and Jetwing Seven in Colombo. Below find our reviews.
We had just spent the previous 24hours commuting, including a sleepover on an airport floor. Jetwing Lighthouse was a complete flip of the script. Rags to riches.
Jetwing Lighthouse is a hotel which pulls out all the stops for its guests. Sea side luxury with super king beds and huge spa ensuites.
We were revitalised by a cold towel and fresh coconut water on arrival. A second boost came when we walked into our grand room. Dropping our bags we were giddily swallowed up by our giant bed. Weightlessness never felt better to our tired aching bodies.
After a freshly plunged coffee we began to explore the hotel. A tranquil Infinity pool looks our at the raging seas. The bar area is a classy establishment with comfortable seating and a billiards table for socializing. The stand out feature, and what could be a tourist attraction in itself is the grand staircase. An artist impression of a historical battle. An invasion by the conquering Dutch twists it way fighting up three flights of steps against the local kings forces, truly an incredible scene.
With a choice of room service, or an up market restaurant you never want to leave. We cleaned up and dreader in our hotel robes finally settling in, a knock came at the door. Some complimentary chocolates arrived right on Que. Our perfect evening completed as we polished then off quickly from beneath the duvet.
We took a morning walk along the sandy beach front before a buffet breakfast of everything imaginable filled us up ready for a day of exploring outside this wonderlands walls.
Jetwing Lighthouse in one night supercharged our biological batteries and had us feeling like kings. Flash packers finest.
If you get to Galle an like us on a long trip and need a night to recover or if you are looking for somewhere luxurious to spend your holiday or honeymoon. Jetwing Lighthouse hotel is that place.
In the biggest city of Sri Lanka, Jetwing Colombo Seven is the perfect accomodation for getting some peace.
Our room had the feeling of inner city penthouse apartment. With the curtains pulled back a large window is revealed, brightening up the entire room, light shines across the bed through the glass wall and into the bathroom.
A desk allows work to be taken care of in comfort should it be required, otherwise a large deep bath is on had to de-stress. A small kitchen including washing machine provides a homely touch and was a timely clean for our packs. Exploring the luxury hotel further unveiled a gym, roof top bar and our favourite feature a roof top pool. The 360 view across the cities reaches provide the perfect spot for both a romantic sunrise and set.
We love a breakfast buffet, not having to think or organise in the morning. Straight down to a table, food already waiting, coffee already hot. just dive in and set yourself up for the day. Jetwing Seven does a great buffet. A chef will cook you eggs any way you like, cooked and cold meats, cheeses, fruits, yogurts, fresh juices and pastries… you name it they have it! We indulged in our fill and retired back to our room. Sometimes you just need to lie back down.
Still not relaxed enough yet? you won’t have to go far because the in house Spa will take care of all your aches and pains. It will get you fully into that tranquil holiday mode where nothing seems a concern because the real world is miles away!
All else fails… you can drink your minibar dry and head to the rooftop bar for seconds.
We had a slow stress free morning which included another swim in our favourite pool before checking out no sooner than the required 12pm.
