Jetwing Vil Uyana is situated among reed beds and paddy fields and over the first man-made lake since the era of Parakramabahu I. Situated in the shadow of the historic rock fortress of Sigiriya, is what Harper’s Bazaar calls the Best Eco Luxury Hotel in Sri Lanka. It was inspired by the habitat creation at the London Wetland Centre by the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust.
In a groundbreaking project, Jetwing Hotels created a private nature reserve consisting of a wetland system with lakes and reed beds. The 36 dwellings of Jetwing Vil Uyana are set within these environs of paddy, forest, water, garden and marsh. Creating a unique experience, the paddy fields of Jetwing Vil Uyana are seeded and harvested seasonally in a tradition going back to ancient Sri Lanka. This exciting eco-luxury resort thereby creates a unique approach to eco-living in an atmosphere of rural simplicity combined with the lavish comforts of the present day to experience a stay hard to forget.
Jetwing Vil Uyana is a nature lover’s paradise – the vast variety of biodiversity that have adopted the property as their own is truly spectacular. Spread over an expanse of 28 acres, the unique placement of dwellings and main buildings gives as much space as possible for nature to thrive. Along with the elusive Gray Slender Loris that has made grounds of Jetwing Vil Uyana its home, currently there are 36 species of butterflies, 120 species of birds, and 20 species of mammals. Will you be able to spot them all during your stay at Jetwing Vil Uyana?
