Jetwing Kurulubedda



A serene ten minute boat ride down the Kepu Ela in Mahamodera, Galle, a short waterway off the Gingganga, so near yet so far away from Jetwing Lighthouse is located the Jetwing Kurulubedda: two stilted dwellings on a quiet little village patch off the river. These two luxury dwellings built on stilts boast a bedroom suite, a large terrace with casual and relaxed seating and a spacious plunge pool below. A dining pavilion overlooking the paddy field and marshes, a lounge surrounded by nature with a ramp leading to the edge of the river and a sprawling lawn for relaxation and lazing are yours to experience.A bath at the well where you can draw your own water in true village style, a drink of Kirala (Genus – Sonneratia Species – caseolaris) from the trees above, red rice from the paddy field around, vegetables and greens from the plots within and the smiling Sri Lankan butler to serve you will make you experience the luxury of being pampered in style. Anoma, the naturalist, will introduce you to the area around including the birds, the plants, the vegetables and the paddy. A boat ride away is a spice garden, a temple and a village laundry – all yours to experience and live. Dream of a refreshing massage on the edge of the field followed by an evening cup of single estate hand rolled bio-tea with home styled patties and cutlets made in the kitchen and a dip in the pool only to be greeted after with a glass of wine from our cellar and then a dinner under the star studded night.


The hotel is situated 155 km (4 hrs drive) from the Colombo International Airport along the breathtaking western coastline of Sri Lanka, flanked by endless beautiful beaches that make the drive an extremely picturesque one.
