Described as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, Sri Lanka is home to idyllic beaches, vibrant culture and lush green landscapes, which are particularly prominent on the islands’ west coast: home to Jetwing Blue. The hotel’s fantastic beach location, as well as being close to Negombo city centre, makes it an ideal base for relaxing as well as exploring the nearby sights and immersing oneself in the culture. With a host of wonderful restaurants to choose from, blissful spa treatments and a spectacular pool which faces golden beaches and sparkling oceans- we feel like we’ve found Sri Lanka’s perfect hotel destination.
Jetwing Blue strikes a perfect balance between the proximity to the bustling city centre of Negombo just 3km away, and the beautiful and tranquil west coast beaches on which it is enviably located. Sri Lanka’s capital city, Colombo, is also close by for day tripping. Spectacular views at Jetwing Blue look out onto the vast Indian Ocean and lush tropical gardens are a backdrop to the contemporary hotel.
Jetwing Blue offers a selection of different rooms to suit your needs and desires. There are 82 Deluxe, 21 Super Deluxe and three family rooms to choose from, as well as six plush suites. Rooms are decorated in muted earthy tones and deep blue tiled floors provide cool relief from the hot sunshine outside. Views give out onto either the Indian Ocean, or the hotel’s beautiful gardens. Every room is equipped with all the mod-cons you’d expect and also come with private balconies with beautiful views: the perfect place for a sundowner.
WHY WE LIKE IT
We love Jetwing Blue for its perfect beach location, its über friendly staff and Zen designed decor: everything about this place is tailored to unwind even the most stressed-out. Sri Lankan landscape is lush and green, whilst its beaches are golden and framed by palm trees, with the Indian Ocean lapping at its shore. Sit by the pool facing the ocean, the perfect spot for relaxing with a drink in hand. A meal at ‘The Float’ restaurant is something different: the dining area is in a shallow pool, allowing you to keep cool by dipping your toes in, and the Centrepoint Grill and Bar offer great BBQ and seafood in a beach setting. The hotel is totally relaxing and also boasts a great spa. Need we say more?
