Jetwing Vil Uyana consists of luxury thatched villas uniquely located in a wetland among reed beds and paddy fields in the shadow of the historic rock fortress of Sigiriya.


This exciting lifestyle hotel has created a unique approach to eco-living with an atmosphere of rural simplicity combined with the lavish comforts of the present day to experience a stay that is hard to forget.


There are three Water Dwellings with rooms that protrude in to the lake. The eleven Paddy/Marsh Dwellings envelope guests into their natural habitat of paddy fields and scrubland.


The ten Forest Dwellings are delightfully rustic and built from earth and stone, with two levels incorporating a spacious bedroom and lounge area upstairs, and a dining room as well as a private swimming pool downstairs.


The art of fine dining is at its highest at the Apsara, which is the main restaurant at Jetwing Vil Uyana. The Sulang lives up to its name with its breezily stimulating atmosphere which entices you into trying out its yummy snacks and distinct beverages.


The facilities at the Jetwing Vil Uyana Spa create an all-encompassing program for overall wellbeing.

"We have returned from an excellent holiday in Sri Lanka.

Elephant Island Tours is a truly customer focused organisation.Our first connect was with Justin in the London Office. He listened carefully to understand our particular needs and apparitions. We were most impressed by his speed of reply, helpful suggestions and advice. The tour fulfilled all our needs. You cannot overestimate the importance of the first contact - Thank you Justin.

The shop window of your organisation was our driver guide Mahendra. He proved to be very knowledgeable and a brilliant driver. He quickly became our friend. He was so helpful in all ways He never let us down. The car was more than adequate for our needs and always clean - Thank you Mahendra."

"I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka where I booked a 6 day overland tour through Elephant Island.

Absolutely faultless. The detailed itinerary put together by Amanda at EI incorporated absolutely everything we wanted to do and gave us a fantastic overview of Sri Lanka, its culture, its wildlife and its history.

Our driver Rohan was exceptional. He drove us with care, explained everything in detail and offered us numerous additional stops for activities such as elephant rides, a look around Kandy market and a trip to Nuwara Eliya. I would make sure, next time I go to Sri Lanka, that I had Rohan driving me around.

If you're going to Sri Lanka you MUST book through EI! The whole process was so smooth and ensured that I had the most amazing time in what is surely one of the world's most beautiful countries."
