Nestled among reed beds and paddy fields in Central Sri Lanka, Jetwing Vil Uyana allows guests to experience a private nature reserve and the best in creature comforts.
The hotel maximizes natural ventilation and light and eliminates the need for artificial light during the day. The hotel is fitted out with energy saving LED and CFL bulbs. Key cards ensure no lights or LED TVs are left on once guests have left their room. Use of natural material such as bamboo wall paneling and wood flooring adds a high design finish. Cadjan roofing and clay mixed wall plastering minimizes the need for artificial cooling. Heat extracted from air conditioners is used to generate hot water for the dwellings.
Jetwing Vil Uyana is one of the first hotel’s in the world to create a man-made wetland on an area that was previously used for slash and burn agriculture. The gifts this has brought in the diversity of animal and plant species is priceless. By juxtaposing eco luxury with a stunning natural setting, Jetwing Vil Uyana offers guests a memory of a lifetime.
