Get closer to nature and discover the art of eco-luxury at its absolute finest at Jetwing Vil Uyana, a unique hotel built on its very own man-made wetland system.

Jetwing Vil Uyana is an eco-friendly luxury hotel with a difference.

It is built on 28 acres of manmade wetland system, comprising lakes and reed beds, to create a private nature reserve that is teeming with birds, monkeys, crocodiles and the rare slender loris.

Elegant dwellings are built on or over water, marshland, paddy fields, or woodland, and are constructed out of sustainable materials to form a delightful synergy with the Sri Lankan landscape.

The hotel is the flagship property in the architectural portfolio of renowned environmental designer Sunela Jayawardane, and it is not hard to understand why Jetwing Vil Uyana has won multiple international accolades for sustainable initiatives and conservation.

Each of the 36 freestanding dwellings at Jetwing Vil Uyana are named after and inspired by the natural habitat that surrounds them and have been built with sustainable local materials including woven reeds and rattan for an atmosphere of natural elegance, complemented by a number of modern amenities to suit the discerning contemporary traveller.

Jetwing Vil Uyana cultivates a unique blend of contemporary luxury and rural simplicity. Wide-open natural spaces provide plenty of room for exploration, while night trails, wildlife watching and birding tours are just some of the experiences that will be waiting just outside your door. One of the rare highlights of a stay at Jetwing Vil Uyana is the chance to see the wide-eyed and curious slender loris. Claiming the title of being the Smallest Recorded Primate in Sri Lanka, the loris lives a life of comfort and security on the property as Jetwing Vil Uyana is the only Loris conservation site in South Asia.

The hotel also provides a multitude of fantastic dining options alongside a well-equipped gym and beautiful island spa offering Ayurvedic treatments, and even hosting an in-house Ayurvedic doctor to ensure that you achieve the peak of relaxation after a busy day exploring the grounds. T

he focus on serenity and nature ensures that you will leave Sri Lanka’s most successful eco-tourism initiative feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and fully at one with the beautiful landscape and indigenous species that call this one-of-a-kind nation home.
