Jetwing Vil Uyana Sigiriya Reviews
Sri Lankan Countryside Experience! Jul 27, 2012
Vil Uyana is not within town of Sigiriya, it is quite hidden in a countryside of this small town in the midst of rice paddies. I picked this hotel through the recommendation of a friend and also for its high reviews. From the photos we've seen, we really looked forward of going there and we were never disappointed :)
We were greeted by the staff with 3 kinds of welcome drinks and a quick tour around the facilities of the hotel including their own wine cellar. Our villa (paddy/marsh dwelling) is just close to the reception so we don't need to ride anymore. Our villa has it's own plunge pool that is lighted to set the mood and surrounded by high bushes for privacy, though, they have to beautifully arrange the bushes so it won't look like a mess, though perhaps what they are trying to achieve is to become authentic as possible :P
Our room is equipped with modern facilities, we have our own tub which we didn't use anymore coz of the plunge pool outside. The bathroom is quite big but we saw a small frog at the shower area! lol! I love our bed and there's a wifi connection inside!
We had our dinner and breakfast ala-carte and it was served 5-class standard...however, i didn't liked their smoothies, when I asked if they gave me the right one I ordered, they said yes and if I would like to replace it with something else, I just politely said no :)
On our last day, we saw a crocodile watching us from the pond beside the pool! Haha, so be extra careful, coz it's not just peacock and monkeys that are roaming around apparently :P

Small luxury hotel resort: Jetwing Vil Uyana Mar 04, 2012
The second i arrived feel a bit disappointed because need to ride another golf cart to the reception. I was a bit lucky because I had a residence visa in Sri Lanka and was charge at a much better rate.
The site is in the middle of no where but as expected it is very private. I stayed in the forest dwelling with private out dopr pool. There are two stories comfortable room with most of the bath room below with spacy bath and shower.
All in all is as good as one can expected in Sri Lanka

5 acres of land will be used to re-grow paddy using traditional harvesting methods, providing a new and exciting feature, rooms within the paddy field, yet another first in Sri Lanka!
The transformation of the land into patches of forested areas will create the feeling of ultimate privacy and will feature the Forest Villas, the largest of the villas.
