The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Jetwing Lagoon spreads across seven acres of tropical gardens edged by Negombo Lagoon. Originally known as the Blue Lagoon, one of Geoffrey Bawa’s first architectural creations, the hotel went through a complete renovation and reopened in its present guise in May 2012. While retaining its original architectural features, much has been added giving it a contemporary feel. Jetwing Lagoon boasts the longest swimming pool on Sri Lanka's north-west coast, spanning 100 metres. Take in the sun by the poolside or unwind with a massage at the tranquil spa.
Room categories include Deluxe Rooms, Bawa Rooms, Family Rooms and Suites. There is also a luxurious Honeymoon Suite. All rooms are tastefully furnished with king-sized beds. Family Rooms are more spacious and have an additional day bed. Suites consist of two bedrooms, one double and twin. Most of the bedrooms open on to pool views while some of the suites have scenic lagoon views. In-room facilities include a/c, overhead fans, satellite TV, IDD telephone, Wi-Fi, tea/coffee facility, mini-bar, electronic safe, room service and laundry service. DVD player, DVDs, and baby cots are available upon request. Although Jetwing Lagoon is situated just minutes away from the turquoise seas, due to undercurrents the ocean here is not suitable for swimming or snorkelling. The hotel focuses more on the picturesque Negombo Lagoon where boat rides are offered.
Dine at Geoffrey’s by the Lagoon, at the main restaurant, in the gardens or in the privacy of your own room. Sri Lankan and international cuisine is served buffet style or a la carte. There is also a bar and well stocked wine celllar. The in-house spa offers relaxing massages and beauty treatments. Other facilities include a 100 metre swimming pool, gym, doctor-on-call, gift shop and baby sitting service with prior notice.
Jetwing Lagoon enjoys a peaceful setting between the Indian Ocean and the Negombo Lagoon on the north-west coast. It is just 20 minutes away from Colombo’s international airport in the village of Thalhena, which is 7km south of Negombo. Colombo is about an hour away.
