Jetwing Vil Uyana Hero

Jetwing Vil Uyana

Jetwing Vil Uyana

Perfectly positioned in the heart of Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle, Vil Uyana is a luxurious haven surrounded by purpose-built wetlands. This eco-friendly retreat boasts a diverse landscape of paddy fields, lakes, bamboo forests, and reed beds meticulously maintained that teem with wildlife. A mere 10-minute drive from the captivating Sigiriya, the resort is ideally located for exploration. Discover nearby attractions like Dambulla's ancient cave temples, Minneriya and Kaudulla National Parks for elephant sightings, and the Ritigala Forest Reserve.

Vil Uyana offers an intimate connection with nature, through 36 spacious freestanding stilted wooden dwellings, some with private pools. Designed with sustainable local materials and modern touches, the rooms are scattered across gardens, paddy fields, forests, marshes, and overwater locations. The resort offers two distinct dining experiences: Aspara, a venue where Sri Lankan and international flavors mingle, and The Sulang Café, a laid-back spot for drinks and light meals. After dinner, move on to the Graffiti Bar for evening drinks. After a day exploring relax with a refreshing dip in the pool or indulgent spa treatments. On-site bicycles are available for exploring the local area, while the wetlands surrounding the property invite exploration, whether on a self-guided adventure or a walking tour led by the resident naturalist.
