A Luxurious Blend Of Ancient, Tropical, and Modernist Influences
Designed by Geoffrey Bawa, each of the 85 rooms at Jetwing Lighthouse are symbols of Sri Lankan hospitality inspired by a world of contrasting influences. Spaciously elegant, every room features a signature ambience that is comforting, enchanting, welcoming, and found nowhere else and is complemented by the services of a butler, who will be on call throughout your stay.
Jetwing Lighthouse features three distinct types of rooms. While the 80 Luxury Rooms spread across our property have been crafted in true tropical modernist style, the three exclusive Themed Suites have been built upon this aesthetic with signature touches of their own. Inspired by ancient travellers who once set foot on Sri Lanka, these unique spaces include the Fa-Hsien Suite, which pays tribute to imperial China, the Ibn-Battuta Suite, which resembles vibrant Morocco, and finally, the Spilbergen Suite, which carries on the legacy of Dutch heritage in our southern capital. Every Themed Suite at Jetwing Lighthouse has been designed with distinct characteristics that resemble the world of each traveller they are named after, yet remain comfortably familiar with the modern luxuries of Bawa’s welcoming architecture. As added pleasures, both suites feature the lavish choices of a bathtub, Jacuzzi or private plunge pool for a sumptuous soak at any time of the day.
The Superior Suites elevate our luxury to a class above with two distinct atmospheres found nowhere else. Firstly, in the form of the Maharaja Suite, which features a number of design influences that resemble a regal India – saffron, brass and bronze tones dress the living spaces of the room in an atmosphere fit for royalty. The alternative is the John Davy Suite, built to resemble the grandeur of an old English manor – with glossy whites and timber accents to dress the room in vintage luxury by the sea.
Built with a combination of rich timber, exotic furnishings, and eco-friendly fabrics, every room at our home of Sri Lankan hospitality effortlessly blends traditional and modern indulgence. And as a luxury hotel, Sri Lanka has also given Jetwing Lighthouse the good fortune of wonderfully designed rooms that face both our coastal gardens and the Indian Ocean. In turn, this surrounding seascape not only emphasises our natural sense of tropical finery, but also complements the number of contemporary amenities available in each room. Such luxuries include an elegant bathroom with a bathtub and rain shower enclosure, free Wi-Fi, a 40” satellite television, tea/coffee making facilities with a French press, and many more.
