Jetwing Surf, – Arugam Bay
Nestled upon a palm-fringed stretch of white sand, Jetwing Surf is located at the bottom of our east coast in Pottuvil – mere minutes away from the world-renowned surfing destination of Arugam Bay. Discreetly situated on the outskirts beyond most hotels in Arugam Bay, Jetwing Surf enjoys an exclusive stretch of untouched beach amidst a congregation of towering coconut trees. From the imagination of up and coming architect John Balmond, our home in Pottuvil is a testament to eastern eco-luxury lifestyles with 20 rustic cabanas that dot our private coastline with Arugam Bay only a few minutes away. Built entirely with sustainable materials found in Sri Lanka and favouring natural cooling over artificial, each cabana is designed with intricate rope and woodwork, thatched roofs, woven coconut palm leaves and dried illuk grass to create an environmentally responsible coastal respite with a minimum carbon footprint. Gently resting upon the soft sands of our property, your cabana opens up to the tropical splendour of towering coconut trees and crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, complemented by the warmth of our legendary Sri Lankan hospitality at Jetwing Surf. Of the 20 spaces of accommodation available at our cabana resort, four are twin rooms while 16 are double rooms. Furthermore, the architecture of every cabana has been inspired by the abstract seashells that lay under our eternal sunshine. Inside, each room features wall-mounted fans to complement the perpetual breeze from our eastern waters and to aid natural ventilation, along with a bathroom that provides hot and cold water to both indoor and outdoor showers should you wish to be closer to nature. For your comfort, luxurious bedding invites peaceful slumbers while two large sofas are also available alongside modern essentials such as free Wi-Fi, a telephone, and electronic safe. And as an added pleasure of our hospitality, all cabanas also feature a spacious outdoor deck with a large canopy umbrella that houses two summer beds with a table and two chairs, looking out into the colourful eastern horizon beyond us. Jetwing Surf features three culinary experiences across our eastern home of Sri Lankan hospitality – our main restaurant – Rella, which features a bar with a wine cellar, our Pool Bar, which specalises in snacks and drinks, and four Signature Dining options – a Jetwing specialty that should not be missed. Overlooking the Indian Ocean, Rella at Jetwing Surf is a breezy space set under a large thatched roof. Designed as an environmentally responsible, open-air setting, the restaurant features both indoor and outdoor seating areas for you to savour your meals from – either à la carte, or from our curated set menus. While Rella also features its own bar with a rustic wine cellar, the relaxed Pool Bar is an alternative respite for unwinding under the Pottuvil sun. Enjoy sipping on a range of exotic cocktails that not only provide a welcoming sense of refreshment, but also a splash of tropical colour to your holiday food photographs.
