*
0 Km

Overview

Jetwing Vil Uyana is situated among reed beds and paddy fields and over the first man-made lake since the era of Parakramabahu I. Situated in the shadow of the historic rock fortress of Sigiriya, is what Harper’s Bazaar calls the Best Eco Luxury Hotel in Sri Lanka. It was inspired by the habitat creation at the London Wetland Centre by the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust.In a groundbreaking project Jetwing Hotels created a private nature reserve consisting of a wetland system with lakes and reed beds. Jetwing Vil Uyana was built within these environs with rooms which have been placed within the paddy fields itself. This exciting lifestyle hotel thereby created a unique approach to eco-living. Relax in an atmosphere of rural simplicity combined with the lavish comforts of the present day to experience a stay hard to forget.

Twenty nine spacious open structures have been built on sturdy stilts above the water, each furnished sumptuously in both style and comfort to provide you with the modern amenities of the 21st century.
