About Jetwing Lake Dambulla
Sprawled among infinite shades of green, Jetwing Lake offers modern languor in Sri Lanka’s remote forest. Surrounded by fertile plains and jungle-clad peaks, there’s a view at every turn.
Stay in chicly designed rooms with modern lines and earthy tones. Panoramic windows frame the picturesque Siyambalawewa reservoir.
The hotel sits within a bio-diverse hot spot so it’s easy to dip into the surrounding forests. Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle is within easy reach of the Dambulla Cave Temple, the country’s best-preserved cave complex, a mere 10-minute drive away.
Kick back by the long outdoor pool shimmering in the sunlight or opt for a body wrap at the spa. The main restaurant opens up to the forest and dishes up Sri Lankan cuisine using locally sourced produce. There’s also a restaurant specialising in Chinese dishes and a choice of two lantern-lit outdoor bars.
Should you wish, the hotel can rustle up private dining just about anywhere – by the pool, next to the lake or in the privacy of your room.
