Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions (Negombo, Sri-Lanka)

4 Case Rating
Location The hotel is located on the main street in Negombo beach on the opposite side of the beach. The beach is about 5 minutes walk though and the street itself 5-10 minutes walk offers many souvenir shops, restaurants, bars and general beach type stores. The sister hotel Jet wing offers a huge pool is about 10 minutes walk away, you can use the facilities there as the hotel pool is quite small. From the main airport it takes about 10-20minutes drive and Colombo city I am told is over 1 hour drive away. Room The room, 205, was located on the top floor on what looks like a newly built area. It is quite a narrow stair case but porters were helpful. The room was spacious, very wooden with an entrance area offering a sofa and then the bed on a raised level. The room itself was a non A/C room type with only overhead fan offered above the comfortable double bed- also covered by a mosquito net. There is no bedside tables though but light switches and plugs are nearby. A table and wardrobe are closeby, plus a luggage rack. The wardrobe offers an easy to use laptop safe. The table offers a mirror, 2 glass bottles of water and a telephone. There is a luggage rack as well. No TV was offered but its a very relaxing place so it was not needed. No mini bar either. Also no bedside table and plugs are only offered by the table. The non AC room was not actually hot due to the airy design of tall wooden roofing. The over bed fan worked fine with different settings. The bathroom was spacious offering a cubicle shower and some basic hotel amenities. Surrounding the room are doors that lead to the narrow balcony but there is raised square wooden floor- great for meditating or yoga. Overall a nice room in which was most suitable for this holistic style hotel retreat. Facilities The hotel offers free WIFI hotel wide that worked well. There is a restaurant that offers very tasty and healthy food- they offer an interesting concept with breakfast that they select the juice based on your body size. Plus some vegetarian dishes and also local dishes. Good standard of food. There is a small pool nearby that is more for relaxing than doing laps. There is though a sister Jet wing hotel about 10 minutes walk away that you can use their pool- which is very long and spacious right on the beach. The highlight of this hotel though is the Ayurveda Spa facility- here they offer multiple massage types following a consultation with the in-house doctor. It costs $35 but the treatment is vey traditional in a simple building but one of the best massages ever had healing a stiff back within the 45 min time frame. They also use steam as well. The retreat itself also offer services for guests staying for 7 days, such as weight loss diet, detox etc.. where you get treatment everyday, yoga and specific meals designated for you at the restaurant. It great get away, detox, eat healthy and get away from it all. Staff Staff are very nice in all area, spa, restaurant and reception offering welcoming & relaxed Sri Lankan hospitality. Overall a very nice hotel that is reasonably priced that offers a relaxing grounds of garden and nice staff. The SPA is the highlight.
