Jetwing Kurulubedda, Galle

Springing from a sylvan landscape tucked away near the village of Mahamodara, a mere 4-KM away from the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Galle Fort is ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’. This boutique hotel flung on the Southern Coast approximately 130-KM away from cosmopolitan Colombo is surrounded by an intricate lacework where woodlands and paddy fields are sewn in green and brown by the artistic hand of nature.

Best Known For

Nestled amidst a wooded fabric, ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ is fashioned to look like a rustic dwelling. This dream of a pastoral boutique hotel basks in a shower of wooden accents. Crowning amidst lavish modern luxuries are its exquisite wooden furnishings. The natural, brown-hued make-up of ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ and the stillness of the woods only shattered by a merry bird song lend it a ‘time stands still’ state of mind.

The Experience

The deluxe rooms at ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ are furnished with a private balcony which overlooks the marshes and paddy fields; a sitting booth set outside seamlessly blends into the shades of the woods. The 2 dwellings are fitted out with a private plunge pool and a spacious terrace that affords views of the green dreams of paddy fields; they are also cosily appointed with flowing nets, throw cushions and soft pillows.

The harvest from the nearby paddy fields and greens from the village’s vegetable fields become a wholesome and delicious meal in the cosy restaurant of the hotel which has taken a seat in front of a pond of lilies. While ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ offers a delicious set of Eastern and Western menus as well, a generous village style meal is what your hearts will yearn for. One can also dig into inspiring noshes at the pool deck, garden and terrace.

Guests of ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ will be welcomed like family at the swimming pools, spa, gym, library and tennis court of its nearest and dearest ‘Jetwing Lighthouse’.

Around and About

Take a stroll enjoying the tranquillity of the dream-like landscape where natural arches and gates of green keep the bosky setting inviolate from the run and dash of everyday world. Honouring the name of the boutique hotel which translates to ‘forest of birds’, ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ is a place of sanctuary for feathered-friends. From the sun-up, the area is the stage for a myriad of sweet concerts where birds sing sweet tunes and perform pirouettes, preening their fine, silky feathers.

In a mere 10-minutes’ drive from ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ , the Galle Fort unravels its old world basking in a historical patchwork of Portuguese, Dutch and British architecture. Stroll around and embrace the loveliness of a quaint clock tower, a three and half century old church, a lighthouse like a faithful reminder of the fort’s heyday, old-world houses and a bouquet of other colonial landmarks. The beach of Galle is beautiful to sunbathe and swim in as well. In less than an hour’s drive from the resort are the laid-back beach town of Unawatuna and the picturesque lagoon town of Koggala - both of which are brimmed in the hues of summer to set your feet dancing.

You are wandering through the dusk to the dream and tranquillity of ‘Jetwing Kurulubedda’ after a day well spent in the village and woods. As crisp, fallen leaves crunch under your feet, a frightened little bird somersaults off a tree top and steals away into a pillow of green leaves. The serene twilight air is sprinkled with hundreds of jubilant hymns of birds who always finish off their day with a song. Only if you could freeze this moment and live in it forever…
