You are safe at Jetwing Hotels
Experience the home of Sri Lankan hospitality with confidence
Being a luminary in the hospitality industry of Sri Lanka, Jetwing’s story is one of genuine passion and unfaltering resilience. During our journey of over 4 decades, we have endured setbacks and adversities time and again, through which we persisted as a family of dedicated people who believe in the ethos of caring and true Sri Lankan hospitality, growing into the brand that we are today.
From laying the foundation to the humble six-bedroom property in Negombo long years ago, to creating over 30 unique spaces across all corners of our beautiful island nation today, everything we did and continue to do are inspired and driven by the values of passion, tenacity, humility and integrity – instilled in us by our founder, the late Chairman Mr. Herbert Cooray.
It was also his firm belief that hospitality cannot exist isolated from the local communities and the environment and so, sustainability is a vital pillar on which Jetwing was built upon. Since our inception, we have done our utmost to preserve the environment that surround us and assist locals of different walks of life, thrive and improve their lives for the better.
In a time where the world as we know it has changed unimaginably in such a short span of time, some things still remain unchanged – our heartfelt ‘Ayubowan’, warmth and compassion; our spirited dedication towards delivering world-class service though authentic Sri Lankan hospitality; our wholehearted endeavor of creating gateways to let the world experience the true essence of Sri Lanka; our long standing commitment towards the environment and people; and most importantly, our ardent efforts towards maintaining the highest standards of safety and hygiene throughout your respite.
Due to the unprecedented events we are facing today, we have elevated our standard protocols to an even higher level without compromising the quality of your experience, to ensure a safe environment in all our properties, with the health and well-being of our associates and guests at the forefront. We assure you that, all of us at Jetwing are doing everything possible to comply with the best practices put forth by the government and the public health authorities across the globe, to actively prevent the spread of COVID-19.
As we weather this crisis as one, with optimism and courage, we are confident that better days are just around the corner. When that day comes, we will welcome you with the warmest of ‘Ayubowan’ to make you feel right at home and we promise you that, with us, no matter the circumstances, you will be in good hands.
Bohoma Isthuthi! (Thank you very much)
