Resort Introduction by The General Manager

Ayubowan! (May you live long) Over the centuries, the seas below us brought the world to these very shores. As the waves crashed against our rocky coast, we watched as foreign cultures melded with our own, in a thriving harmony that transformed an ancient trading post into the bustling coastal city we are proud to call our home. The influences of the world have shaped the very fabric of Galle as we know it. From the iconic Dutch fortress in the heart of the city, to the traditional fishing villages at its fringe, these cross-cultural charms have since extended into the nature of our legendary hospitality, and have been brought to life in an architectural masterpiece designed by Geoffrey Bawa, which will always remain open for you to come and discover our heritage of tropical luxury on the southern coastline of Sri Lanka. Priyanthika Wijenaike General Manager – Jetwing Lighthouse


Designed by the celebrated architect Geoffrey Bawa, the iconic Jetwing Lighthouse, which embodies the best of tropical modernism, elegance and old-world charm, has upheld the honour of being one of the finest resorts in the historical city of Galle since its inception in 1997. Sitting atop a magnificent hillock that looks over the vast blue expanse of the great Indian Ocean, Jetwing Lighthouse reflects a strong Dutch colonial influence.Flanked by our popular seas on one side, and the coastal trunk road on the other, our home of Sri Lankan hospitality gives a rare sense of being steeped in history apart from pampering guests with personalized butler service, exquisite global cuisine, rejuvenating spa treatments and unmatched luxuries. Facing the spectacular sun, sand and sunsets of the southern coasts, Jetwing Lighthouse offers you the very best of a tropical retreat.Luxury Rooms – Main Wing.
