Under the supervision of one of Geoffrey Bawa’s renowned students, Architect Vinod Jayasinghe, Jetwing Hotels plans to open the Jetwing Lagoon hotel shortly this year. Jetwing Lagoon will feature the longest swimming pool in the West Coast, at 100m in length. Comfort and facilities will indeed go hand in hand, with 55 deluxe rooms situated near the Negombo lagoon front, and villas which will be added later as well as a restaurant dedicated to Geoffrey Bawa and his preferred dishes, a coffee shop, fully equipped gym and conference facilities.
“Being a Jetwing property, our visitors can indeed expect the high standards and dedication to Sri Lankan hospitality that we have always maintained,” said Wester Felthman, General Manager. “The Jetwing Youth Development Project is currently underway here as well, with over 60 youth from the area being trained in hospitality skills which we know will benefit them tremendously in the future,” he continued.
