Jetwing Vil Uyana,


Price From : US $ 516.00


This ambitious and impressive development, more an exclusive rural holiday village than a hotel, is highly recommended. Situated on extensive flatlands immediately to the west of the Sigiriya Rock, Vil Uyana – meaning a garden of ponds - is envisaged as a natural extension to the efforts of ancient Sinhala kings who developed and irrigated this area. Spread over 28 acres, at its heart is a wetland system consisting of paddy fields, marshes, and waterways reintroduced by the hotel. Individual dwellings, luxuriously appointed within, and blending seamlessly into the rural landscape, are located over lakes, marshes and paddy fields. The wilderness provides a natural habitat for birds and butterflies. The Vil Uyana experience captures the heritage and natural wonders of this island nation all in one place. The sound of crickets on a quiet moonlit night, the sight of a peacock strutting by with its glorious wings trailing behind, fruit bats wheeling overhead at sunset, the haunting sound of a flautist coming from the restaurant, and the Sigiriya rock as it emerges from the misty sky at dawn are all sights and sounds that will forever be etched in your memory.


Accommodation is in the form of 36 individual dwellings on stilts situated in five distinct habitats. These huge, luxurious paddy, marsh and water dwellings are connected by wooden walkways. They have timber floors, ceilings of rattan and bamboo and sloping roofs thatched with coconut palm.
