Located around 10 mins drive from Sigiriya, the hotel is set in some old rice fields with lakes and many grassy areas. Boardwalk access to the villas as the fields are flooded during rainy season.

Villas are spacious and very private, furnished in a local style. Each has a private plunge pool and balcony where you can watch the wildlife, from peacocks to massive fruit bats.

A communal pool, by reception is not massive but more than adequate with a nice view over the lagoon and the local crocs :-)

We paid for half board and the food was superb. 7 courses (if you include amuse Bouches) each night with a good selection of fish and meat. Nothing is too much trouble for the restaurant staff, even tailoring some dishes to suit our family as I am the only fish eater.

All in all, thoroughly recommended.

The location of this hotel is simply stunning. You are right in the middle of nature, and it is very tranquil.

The staff are friendly and helpful (to the extent they can be, in some cases) but service can be a little mixed. Breakfast one day was terribly slow.

We enjoyed the food very much. The menu varied each day but a word of caution - do check on the level of spice.

The rooms themselves are lovely, but for a 5 star hotel there was a tiny wardrobe.

We would definitely go back.

A truly special place and perfectly isolated for family and couples.

You feel like you are the only people staying there and the restaurant has probably the best food in the area. Tried many other places and none came close to the experience.

The rooms are unlike anything you see elsewhere, very spacious. The only draw back daughters notes was lack of wardrobe space and a room mirror.

Would highly recommend.

Visited for three nights in August 2017 with our two girls (11 and 14). Beautiful location and stunning design. The luxurious cabins were surrounded by lush vegetation and great views. Every detail thought of down to the coffee maker and sound system. A relaxed, serene vibe at the pool, wouldn't want your kids to get too noisy. The food was delicious and the staff lovely. We, like most people, were coming and going quite a bit so the relaxed mood at the pool was lovely to come back to after a few hours sight seeing. A great base to see many of the cultural attractions.
One thing worth noting, our accommodation as a family of four was in two cabins, about 40 metres apart joined by a wooden gangway. Our girls enjoyed having their own space and a bit of independence but for slightly younger children it might mean one parent staying in each cabin with a child. Or there may be a couple of larger cabins, not sure.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor following your recent stay at Jetwing Vil Uyana. We are glad to hear you've had a wonderful stay with us, here in Sigiriya. At Jetwing Hotels, providing you with the best personalized service is the number one priority. Your kind feedback on our service, food along with the architecture and ambiance of our resort is truly appreciated and will be shared with the entire team.

Regarding your concern on accommodation for families with younger children, we have adjoining rooms in our Garden Dwelling category. However a parent's presence is always recommended when with younger children as this entire resort is built on an eco reserve with lakes and wildlife all around.

Having experienced the unique Jetwing Hospitality, we hope you will remember us the next time you visit the Cultural Triangle of Sri Lanka.
