The beauty of the hotel’s location is that it is located on a long stretch of beach on the east coast. Roaming cattle and fishermen are deserted except for opening their rough wooden catamarans.
Situated on the border of Pottuvil, a few miles from the surf-oriented Arugam Bay, this hotel has a sense of solitude and can be used as a launch gate to explore lesser-known cultural sites and national parks. Kumana East and Lahugala National Parks as well as the lagoons in the region are a major bird-watching area (both less than an hour away)
The design of the hotel is a low-key beach aesthetic and reflects Jetwin Hotel’s commitment to building eco-friendly, sustainable hotels. The resort features 20 cabins and an open-sided restaurant in a spacious natural setting that contributes to an elegant round design.
Many young employees are employed through the company’s youth program, which provides free training to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who live nearby. It is a very reliable program – although some members are only interested in the practical aspects of their job and learning English, they may seem restless, but they are committed and have the support of more experienced staff. The hotel has a seafront swimming pool, round lounges, and sunbeds.
