Negombo, Sri Lanka
Situated along the captivating golden sandy shores of Negombo, Jetwing Blue offers its guests delightful experiences together with luxury accommodation, boasting the only 5 Star classification in the area. Located in the Negombo city, on a pristine stretch of beach, Jetwing Blue encapsulates the splendour of this exotic town while exploring its tantalising seafood.
The resort is conveniently located a mere 7 miles (20 minutes drive) from the Bandaranaike International Airport, while Colombo is just 25 miles away.
Jetwing Blue hosts a luxurious selection of some of the finest bars and restaurants in Negombo. The main restaurant, an open show kitchen that is aptly named 'The Kitchen', treats you to a complete sensory dining experience that starts with the sounds of kitchen equipment and ends with the mouthwatering taste of your meals – all against the magnificent backdrop of the Indian Ocean. The Centre Point Grill & Bar serves up a selection of light snacks and refreshing beverages in a casual dining space. For a speciality dining experience Jetwing Blue features a Sushi Bar with a variety of Japanese culinary delights using a combination of fresh island produce and the finest fresh seafood.
For cocktails and mocktails, and everything in between, Jetwing Blue is home to two bars. At the edge of the beach, The Float is an elegant watering hole with a palm-fringed view of the horizon beyond, while The Outrigger is a cosy poolside bar whose name draws inspiration from the traditional fishing craft that serves as an icon of this coastline.
In addition to the many stunning photographs you capture on your adventures beyond the premises of Jetwing Blue, you will also be treated to fascinating insights into Sri Lanka's culture, history, and nature.
Beneath the waters, the Duwa Coral Reef is a thriving landscape of marine life. For the more adventurous diver however, the Kudapaduwa shipwreck and sunken Royal Air Force aircraft under the seas in Katuneriya are two historical remnants unexplored by most. Above the water, sister resort Jetwing Lagoon hosts a professional water sports centre that offers jet-skiing, windsurfing and more.
Within the city itself, Negombo features a number of cultural and historical legacies amidst the bustling beachside haunts that contribute to its popularity – for instance, the centuries-old colonial Dutch Fortress which still stands today, or perhaps more famously, the nearby Lellama Fish Market, which pays tribute to Negombo's roots as a traditional fishing village, and continues to sell some of the best seafood Sri Lanka has to offer. Just outside the city centre, the Angurukaramulla Temple is also worth visiting as a 300-year old Buddhist temple with ancient murals and ruins of a library.
South of Negombo, a day trip to the capital city of Colombo – complete with high-end shopping, fine dining, and other cultural experiences. In stark contrast, another capital albeit an ancient one, lives on through ruins of a palace and other structures in Dambadeniya, once the royal seat of a flourishing kingdom.
