Our Floating Home Of Sri Lankan Hospitality
Following your afternoon check-in, a sunset cruise along the winding Bentara River culminates in a dinner under the southern stars that is bound to leave you comfortably satisfied, as you retreat to your cabin for a slumber on the river waters until you wake up to the sounds of the serene landscapes around you.
On board Yathra by Jetwing, contemporary rustic design complements traditional ambiences; featuring two intimate wooden cabins fitted with modern essentials for your luxurious river cruise. Air-conditioned for your comfort indoors, yet open to the greenery of the Bentara River with a private balcony, each cabin has been designed to seamlessly blend in with the tranquil environment that surrounds you. As you float through the inlands of southern Sri Lanka, houseboat comforts will ensure your stay is as serene as the waters below. This soothing sense of nature has also inspired our tropical décor on board Yathra by Jetwing, where wooden furnishings dress each cabin in earthy tones, while turquoise wicker chairs sit behind bamboo railings that separate you from the elements.
Staying on this floating home of Sri Lankan hospitality is also distinctly rewarding for its spacious living areas on board the houseboat. For instance, each cabin also features an elegant ensuite bathroom, complete with not just a rain shower, but also a sumptuous bathtub for added indulgence. These floating abodes also connect to an expansive lounge area for open relaxation, with access to the exclusive rooftop deck of Yathra by Jetwing. Fit for a moonlit dinner, afternoon reading, or even morning yoga, the enchanting rooftop is an escape within an escape for those who wish to immerse themselves in the provincial air and river landscapes from a vantage point like no other.
Please note that due to the nature of Yathra by Jetwing, the property is unable to provide accommodation for drivers and/or guides.
