Surrounded by emerald paddy fields, the exclusive Jetwing Vil Uyana is a serene base from where you can easily explore the sights of Sri Lanka’s famed Cultural Triangle. In fact, the iconic rock fortress of Sigiriya can be seen on a clear day from the open-air main restaurant at this resort, which offers fine dining beside a tranquil lake. There is also a more casual cafe, offering light refreshments amid reflective ponds covered in lily and lotus pads.
Accommodation at Jetwing Vil Uyana is in 36 villas that are the embodiment of eco-luxury, fashioned from sustainable materials such as woven reeds, rattan, earth and stone. Ceilings are incredibly high to facilitate natural airflow, whilst large windows flood living areas with daylight. Dwellings are named after the five environments they occupy: Garden, Marsh, Paddy, Water and Forest.
Facilities at Jetwing Vil Uyana include a central swimming pool, gym, wellness spa, boutique and library, with bicycles available to explore the local area. Aside from a visit to the legendary rock fortress of Sigiriya, a trip to the Dambulla Cave Temple is highly recommended. You can also climb Pidurangala Rock for sensational views, follow the exceptional Rangirigama Birding Trail and enjoy a guided nocturnal forest walk.
