Nov. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- The Galle Fort. First built in 1588 by the Portugese, and then extensively renovated by the Dutch from 1649 onwards, it has now become an icon of Sri Lanka. Recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Fort and its inner properties have become synonymous with history and adventure. Perfect for Jetwing Hotels, as they introduce their latest acquisition, the Galle Heritage Villa, situated within the confines of the Ramparts.

The architecture is eclectic in design; a transformation of a 1950’s mansion concept into a colonial Dutch villa, with four large, elegantly decorated suites. Possessing required amenities such as rain showers with hot/cold water, air conditioning, WiFi access and television, comfort is assured during any stay. In true Jetwing fashion, excursions are a‐plenty: with archaeological sites, religious sites, island hopping, local arts and culture, as well as nature excursions and scuba diving and snorkeling at the world famous Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna.

“The Galle Heritage Villa is a property that defines a holiday away from home; especially for families, individuals, or even groups of friends. With plenty to do and see, the location itself (within the only living UNESCO World Heritage Site) is ideal. Add in our unique brand of Jetwing hospitality, and you definitely have a stay worth remembering”, said Robert Claesson, General Manager of Galle Heritage Villa and Jetwing Lighthouse.

Considered by many to be ‘overambitious’, properties such as Jetwing Lighthouse in Galle and Jetwing Vil Uyana in Sigiriya are now icons; Jetwing Lighthouse being the creation of the immortal Geoffery Bawa, Jetwing Vil Uyana rightly described as a ‘magical, enchanting property where man and nature meet, and are at once inexplicably linked’. Along with Jetwing Beach in Negombo, the first product in the Bawa‐Jetwing relationship, both properties are members of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

The birthplace of Jetwing, Negombo, with its inviting small town charm, sandy beaches and spicy nightlife remains close to the company’s heart, with 4 properties: Jetwing Blue, the former Blue Oceanic Beach Hotel which was Jetwing’s first, now relaunched after a massive re‐vision along with Jetwing Sea, Jetwing Beach, and Sri Lanka’s first purpose built health resort, Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions. Other locations include Jetwing St. Andrew’s and Jetwing Warwick Gardens nestled high up in the hill country, and Jetwing Kurulubedda in Galle. The Family continues to grow, with the extremely private and exclusive Era Beach, the historic Tangalla Bay, Galle Heritage Villa within the Fort of Galle, and Dedduwa Boat House all under the wings of Jetwing.
