In a time where tourism saw a fall in the country, late Chairman Herbert


Cooray took a bold step by opening Jetwing Lighthouse in Galle in 1997. What would then seem an impossible task has now come to fruition and has helped transform the city of Galle itself. Galle is now a popular traveller destination in Sri Lanka and Jetwing Lighthouse has remained the beacon of the South for 20 years since its inception.

In light of the 20 year anniversary of Jetwing Lighthouse, the hotel has organised a series of celebratory events and offers for its loyal guests. Coupled with days of absolute luxury and endless entertainment, the anniversary packages include a three-night, four-day stay on half board basis for only Rs. 97,000 for check-ins on 8 June and a two-night, three-day stay on half board basis at Rs. 70,000 for check-ins on 9 June.

In a theme of 20/20 offers and gifts, guests will receive upon check-in a beach bag inclusive of a hat, scarf, body lotion, beach toys, flip flops and also potentially win a 20 minute spa treatment, a 20 minute boat trip, a 20 minute Ayurvedic doctor’s consultation, or 20 nails made up in 20 minutes at the spa and much more. The guests can also treat themselves to a juice bar stationed at the Club Lawn serving 20 varieties of fruit and vegetable juices to beat the heat while engaging in a daily 20 minute yoga session, seashore trail, releasing 20 turtles into the sea, a 20 minute cookery class with renowned Chef Nihal, a 20 minute walk to Jetwing Kurulubedda to sip on 20 varieties of cocktails and many more fun games and activities lined up during the stay.
