Jetwing Lighthouse reopens after revamp

Jetwing Lighthouse reopened on August 1 after closing for a period of three months for renovations.

The refurbishment included the renovation of 63 rooms in the main wing, public areas, restaurants and the pool bar. The main wing which previously had deluxe rooms has been updated to the luxury category.

A disclosure notice issued to the Colombo Stock Exchange in May revealed that a sum of Rs 200 million (£ 885,000) has been invested for the renovation.

The management has decided to operate its sister property, Jetwing Lighthouse Club under Jetwing Lighthouse renaming the two sections as main wing and spa wing.

Jetwing Lighthouse was designed Geoffrey Bawa in 1996 and 1997.

The hotel comes under the purview of The Lighthouse Hotel PLC which also operates Galle Heritage Villa by Jetwing, Hotel J – Unawatuna and Jetwing Kurulubedda. Hiran Cooray is the chairman of The Lighthouse PLC.
