Wonderful hotel.....right on the beach. May 30, 2011
After a nine day tour of the cultural highlights we arrived at The Jetwing Lighthouse in Galle. We had travelled for 14 hours and were hot and tired. Lynda had suffered badly with motion sickness during the drive from the Inheritance Tea Factory. Finally we hit Galle, pulling in to the Lighthouse Hotel just a little after 9.00pm. It had taken nearly fourteen hours.

At reception, I pointed out that my wife was unwell and could they please make check-in as fast as possible. They duly did and we were heading for our room within five minutes. And wow!!! What a room. Huge and with awesome mood lighting. Lynda just wanted to take a bath and get to bed. I opened the doors to the bathroom and again…! Massive bathroom with walk-in shower and huge spa type bathtub. Candles burning and various spa treatment potions available. It was just what she needed. After pouring myself a large glass of finest malt, I opened the shutters and glass doors to explore the balcony, and another wow. We were less than twenty yards from the ocean, the balcony was very big with a table and chairs, the view was just stunning…..perfect.

Next day we found the large air-conditioned restaurant but opted to sit on the picturesque verandah overlooking the craggy rocks with the dramatic sound of the huge waves crashing against them.

Breakfast was as good and as impressive as any, with dishes cooked to order on the verandah. The beach was wonderful and both pools were huge, warm and clean. the only drawback was that because of the rift tides it wasn't safe to swim in the sea which at times could be quite rough. Bet hey that's the beauty of nature and a timely reminder of the power of the sea.

In summary we had a fantastic stay in a wonderful setting with delicious food and attentive staff and we would definitely return here.

Galle in southern sri lanka is quaint, post colonial and simply stunning. And so is its light house hotel. Built by the very talented sri lankan architect, geoffrey bawa, this hotel has it all - a great ambience, great food, a great spa, 2 pools and super rooms ! I was lucky to have visited it twice this year ! :)

The planning stage.
When we first considered visiting Sri Lanka, our intention was just to find a cheapy package holiday and spend some relaxing time in the sunshine at a beach resort. But it very soon became clear that…Jetwing Lighthouse and for Colombo the Galle Face Hotel. All the hotels were booked through Agoda. Our next job was to work…
