Ayubowan! (May you live long)
Over the centuries, the seas below us brought the world to these very shores. As the waves crashed against our rocky coast, we watched as foreign cultures melded with our own, in a thriving harmony that transformed an ancient trading post into the bustling coastal city we are proud to call our home.
The influences of the world have shaped the very fabric of Galle as we know it. From the iconic Dutch fortress in the heart of the city, to the traditional fishing villages at its fringe, these cross-cultural charms have since extended into the nature of our legendary hospitality, and have been brought to life in an architectural masterpiece designed by Geoffrey Bawa, which will always remain open for you to come and discover our heritage of tropical luxury on the southern coastline of Sri Lanka.
General Manager – Jetwing Lighthouse
One of the most iconic Galle hotels, Jetwing Lighthouse is located on its immediate outskirts upon a hillock overlooking the vast Indian Ocean beyond our heritage city. The coastal trunk road runs just outside our home of Sri Lankan hospitality, offering easy access from other destinations, including Colombo via the Southern Expressway.
The historic city of Galle and its surroundings are home to an abundance of experiences that range from exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Galle Fort, discovering the traditional art of Sri Lankan mask making, or even witnessing the breathtaking beauty of blue whales in their natural habitat.
Jetwing Lighthouse joins our family of hotels across the island with an unwavering dedication to sustainable initiatives, through a holistic commitment that preserves our biodiversity, uplifts our community, and promotes the use of renewable energy across the many operations in our home of Sri Lankan hospitality.
