Go forth into the wild, or back into the early centuries

Bordering Sri Lanka’s famed reserve of Yala National Park, Jetwing Tented Villas is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. The abundance of exotic flora and fauna within the sanctuary is a treat that can be prolonged for as long as you wish on a series of full or half-day safaris. For birding enthusiasts however, a number of dedicated trails in our immediate region offer a specialised wildlife experience.

The surrounding region is also one that is rich in history and culture, home to the ancient temples of Kataragama and Sithulpauwa – both significant in their own right. While the latter serves as an ancient Buddhist monastery dating back to the 2nd century BC, Kataragama has been a revered town for pilgrims of multiple faiths for centuries as well.

In addition to the natural and historical wonders that surround us, the coastal grounds of Jetwing Tented Villas also hold experiences of their own. Closer to home, the wide expanse of water is great for a range of water sports, while further out at sea, diving enthusiasts can explore some of the most fascinating marine life and magnificent shipwrecks in the Indian Ocean.
