Tropical Indulgence By Our Inland Waters
Tucked away in the provincial backlands of one of Sri Lanka’s most popular beach destinations, Dedduwa Boat House and Yathra Houseboat by Jetwing welcome you to the inland waters of Bentota on our island’s buzzing southern coastline. Unlike villas in Bentota, the Dedduwa Boat House brings our signature brand of legendary Sri Lankan hospitality to lush gardens by the Bentara River, while Yathra Houseboat by Jetwing invites you upon it. As the first houseboat in Sri Lanka, Yathra Houseboat by Jetwing offers a truly one-of-a-kind experience amidst floating luxury. Fitted with two elegantly furnished cabins and a rooftop deck for dining under the southern stars, your private cruise will be an exceptional getaway in a region otherwise known for its sunny beaches. Both our homes of hospitality specialise in experiences around the Bentara River – including journeys through the thriving biodiversity of its many quiet arteries, or even thrilling aquatic activities in what is considered to be the water sports capital of Sri Lanka. As an alternative, we also offer a variety of other provincial experiences such the Bawa Trail – which allows you to visit masterpieces of the prolific architect, Geoffrey Bawa, and his brother Bevis Bawa tucked away in our neighbouring regions.
