An Intimate Getaway at Yathra by Jetwing and Saffron & Blue

While the frequent jet skiers, wind surfers, sailors and more take to the waters in Bentota for adventure activities, on the other end of the water way you will find a float that which will give you a rare experience of luxury and adventure in motion – Yathra by Jetwing.

Taking the form of a houseboat, Yathra by Jetwing allows its guests to transcend into a world of tranquility passing through the scenic views along the Bentara River.

Guests can experience the journey in the comfort of their cabin with a balcony inclusive of minimalistic modern amenities. Feel nothing but ease in the two air-conditioned cabins with attached bathrooms as you float across the river while seated in the turquoise chairs set in the room balcony adding a private moment to the guests.

Come nightfall, dinner will be served at the front deck or under the mesmerizing stars on the top deck. The chef on board specializes in serving only the finest in Sri Lankan cuisine that will only leave you asking for more. The breakfast cruise commences at seven in the morning allowing you to laze into the day in the comfort of the lounges on the top deck.  Yathra by Jetwing allows you to embark on a memorable journey with friends, family or significant other in a mysterious yet beautiful setting. The bamboo walls and thatch roof rustling in the wind as you cruise through the river adds to the soothing experience of a personal voyage.
