Overview

Jetwing Blue is a large, contemporary beach-front hotel overlooking Negombo’s golden sands in west coast Sri Lanka. Conveniently located just 12 kilometres from Colombo international airport, many choose to stay here at the beginning or end of their Sri Lanka visit. All 112 rooms have a private balcony with Indian Ocean views and there are two swimming pools, a gym, squash courts, and an adjacent Ayurvedic spa offering wellness treatments and yoga, not to mention the many activities available on the beach. There’s a variety of dining options including exclusive ‘a la carte’ beach front dining, or the Open Kitchen where chefs can be seen preparing meals including some of the freshest seafood around. There’s also the more casual Centre Point Grill and Bar, along with The Float Bar which offers fine wines, cocktails, rare brands of spirits and fabulous ocean views.

The accommodation comprises 82 deluxe and 21 super deluxe rooms, six suites, and three spacious family rooms. All bedrooms have a fresh, modern feel and comprehensive in-room facilities including en-suite bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and a plasma TV with satellite channels and DVD players on request. The suites each house a king-size bed, a comfortable living room and a large balcony with Jacuzzi and a personal butler service is available.

Negombo is a charming beach dotted with traditional fishing catamarans with billowing sails. Water sports are offered in abundance; deep-sea diving is a popular pastime, and Negombo is one of Sri Lanka’s best locations for kite and wind surfing. Many choose to stay put and enjoy the wide range of beach activities on offer, however do bear in mind that Negombo town itself is worth a visit, in particular the bustling fish market. In addition, the nearby Muthurajawela marshes make a great choice for nature lovers – this intriguing network of lagoon salt waters is home to numerous birds, butterflies, monitor lizards, and crocodiles.

Children of all ages are welcome at Jetwing Blue. The family rooms all have ocean views and plenty of space to accommodate extra beds and cots. Babysitting services are available for an additional fee and there is a children’s pool on site, although parents are reminded to supervise their children at all times since pools are unfenced and the ocean is just a stone’s throw away.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
