SRI LANKA - Renowned the world over for the promise of true, traditional Sri Lankan hospitality complemented by elegant design and indulgent comfort, Jetwing Hotels now adds something different to the traditional resort mix – a highly unique and intimate collection of boutique villas and properties. Catering to the traveler that wishes the ultimate in privacy, or families that wish to spend quality vacation time together, each property is the complete experience.
Mosvold Villa by Jetwing leads this exquisite collection, a brand new property built by the beachfront of Ahangama. Famous the world over for its iconic stilt fishermen, Ahangama is a town that offers much to the discerning traveler. The boutique villa is perfect for romance, or a getaway from the worries of the everyday world. Featuring a pool that begs for an evening dip, and a poolside bar with restaurant upstairs, the 6 bedroom property offers luxury living in a simple atmosphere – elegant wood furnishings blending with white interiors and splashes of colour along with all the amenities you need. There are plenty of activities to keep anyone occupied, from snorkeling in the natural reef to long beach walks or excursions conducted by the nearby Jetwing Lighthouse.
Moving further to the small village of Kosgoda, situated halfway between Colombo and Galle, is a secret waiting to be discovered – Saffron & Blue by Jetwing, a holiday home which is unsurpassed in its design and beauty. On the shores of the beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean and only a few meters away from the famous Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery, Saffron & Blue by Jetwing is a 4 bedroom villa designed by Channa Daswatte – a student of the late, great Geoffrey Bawa. The property is delightfully and lovingly decorated and the prime feature of the villa are its 4 bedrooms, placed around a main living area. Each bedroom has its own personality and character, brought forth through varying hues of colour, art and antiques. Plenty of open spaces are available, for private reading, heart to heart conversations (or gossip!), along with a 40ft pool with a pool terrace. Chill, relax and unwind as the sun sets, with Saffron & Blue by Jetwing providing the perfect backdrop.
Overlooking the Indian Ocean and accompanied by a virgin stretch of beachfront is Villa 700; sure to attract families for a weekend away or an extended vacation. Situated in the charming village of Induruwa, the property is styled in a minimalist yet inviting manner, with an ambience to preserve harmony and exude calm.
With 3 bedrooms and a pool, Villa 700 provides the comforts necessary to unwind, and the base to embark on a journey of discovery. The famed turtle hatchery of Kosgoda isn’t too far, along with the Bawa Trail – Geoffrey Bawa’s Lunuganga and Bevis Bawa’s Brief – are just a couple of the exciting attractions to be experienced in the area.
The other addition is Jetwing’s latest acquisition, the Haridra Resort & Spa by Jetwing. An extremely breathtaking beachfront property near the town of Wadduwa and only an hour away from Colombo, the peaceful ambience of the resort is immediately felt on arrival. Bringing together a luxury stay of leisure and tranquility together with genuine Sri Lankan Ayurvedic healing, the Haridra Resort & Spa by Jetwing features 32 suites which have been designed with indulgence and freedom in mind.
All 32 suites overlook the Indian Ocean, and feature en-suite bathrooms along with private balconies. Cuisine is considered sacred at the property; with star class chefs cooking up dishes from a variety of cultures to complement long lazy days spent in the infinity swimming pool or traditional Ayurveda Spa.
“The latest additions to our ever growing collection of properties are definitely to be experienced, by individuals, couples, or families. We are focusing on those who wish a little bit of privacy, who feel the need to get away and just relax; to help them live exactly the way they deserve” said Ishanth Gunewardene, Head of Sales and Marketing for Jetwing.
