    What a gem of a hotel . If you are like me , don’t like the normal huddle and bustle of a busy hotel this is for you . Just relaxing , and were served very well by Gayan . One of the best relaxing places we went to . Checked in on a Monday and checked out Tuesday. Extra mile taken for delicious food. Beautiful architecture and serene . Have great discounts at times

    Nice little place among large green trees. 6 villas. Can join buffet at Lighthouse. So quiet and peaceful. Staff is excellent.

    The experience was okay. I will start with the negatives first. The property is situated in a corner of a byroad, which is not visitor-friendly. Once you enter the property, you can see some of the nearby houses. The height of the boundary wall could have been increased to provide some sort of barrier to cover those houses. Also you can here noices made by people around and dogs. However, the rest of the property is fine. I spent my days in Villa 1. When you are in the water closet area with the lights on at night, you can be seen by anyone in the car park. Since the rooms are covered with glass, you have to pull down the blinds. Sometimes there is a gap between the blinds, and the room is not always perfectly covered. This can be a cause for concern, as you may be spotted by the staff or visitors from the next villa. On the second morning of our stay, we received our breakfast at around 10 a.m., which was supposed to be at 9 a.m. Apart from these issues, all of the other experiences were superb, especially the customer service. Special thanks to Gayan.

    Lovely place. This was my second stay of 3 nights in the Villa #1 (one with the private plunge pool). I loved my first stay so much that I simply had to return, within a few weeks with my partner in tow; we stayed for another 3 nights! The hospitality of Sameera and his team (Asanka, Gayan and Shantha - thank you very much!) is exceptional. The team is small and yet they run a tight ship- always attentive, yet unintrusive to their guests. This is a beautiful place nestled amongst lush greenery and a paddy field. It is an ideal environment to connect with nature. We had monkeys in the treetops just outside our dwelling, kingfishers, waterhens, egrets and various other tropical birds, tree frogs and chipmunks. We also had a visit from a peacock on our final evening! Do note: this is a place for those seeking tranquility, therefore, not a place for those looking to indulge in loud group resort-style holidays or loud music. Ideal for solo travellers or for a couple who value nature. Visitors should respect the natural environment, and the team that work hard to sustain this incredible experience. Food wise, there is a selection in-house; as Kurulubedda is a part of the Jetwing group, meals are also available at the nearby Lighthouse Hotel (walking distance). Kurulubedda is also a short tuk journey away from the Galle town, Galle Dutch Fort etc. I am already planning my return to this magical place!

    We spent two days at one of the villas last week. It was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was very relaxing. You could hear the chirping of the birds at the crack of dawn. The villa was very clean and well appointed. The whole staff was well trained and the service was excellent. The food that was served was very tasty. The butler who was assigned to our villa, Gagan Subash, provided excellent service. He was very curtious, helpful and accomodating. He went above and beyond his call of duty to serve us. We booked the place for one night but ended up staying for two. We had one lunch at the Light House hotel. There too the service and the food was very good. The manager there was also very helpful. We would definitely go there again in the future. .

    We chose to visit this establishment based on Jetwing's reputation, but unfortunately, it did not meet our expectations of a typical Jetwing hotel. However, it may appeal to those who appreciate nature. The hotel is relatively small, with a few rooms featuring private pools, although we found the private pool rooms to be lacking. One advantage of staying here is that you can dine at Jetwing Lighthouse, located just a few meters away. It would be convenient to have your own transportation to move between the two hotels. The staff here are dedicated to providing a positive experience for their guests. Please note that if you prefer luxurious accommodations, this may not be the ideal place for you.

    Great stay from beginning to the end. We were looking for a quiet place and reconnect with nature and this place exceeded our expectations! We had a room at the upper floor, we woke up with all kind of birds, monkeys, peacocks.. just right in front of us. The service was impeccable, always asking if we need anything, always there when we needed - all with a genuine smile - being able to also enjoy the pools and beach at their nearby lighthouse branch was also a super cool treat so we got the best of both worlds: jungle boutique resort and beachfront luxury experience!

  • 5Hashini N. 9 months ago
    It's a solo friendly hotel. I had a very relaxed time there. Food, location, staff (special thanks to Mr. Sameera), cleanliness and privacy were excellent. They provide facilities to dine at Jetwing Lighthouse too. Spa facility is available at the Lighthouse hotel. Travelling between 2 hotels was not a big trouble as both are close by.

  • 2Ashvinth P. 9 months ago
    Not as expected. There are only 6 rooms available. 2 with inner pool and 4 normal rooms. Rooms are spacious and clean. But the hotel surrounding is not good as expected. There is a pool with a small paddy field in front of the rooms and a 50m walking path. That’s it. Total hotel can be covered within 10 minutes. No gym or spa. They don’t even have a kitchen to prepare food. If you book for a full board, your food will be delivered from Jetwing lighthouse. Or you can go to jetwing lighthouse to have your food. Overall, not up to jetwing’s standards

  • 5Nimesha K. 9 months ago
    Loved the ambiance and the room amenities. Plunge pool was good as well. Staff is also very friendly. If you want, You can arrange your breakfast from the jetwing lighthouse hotel which is nearby

  • 5Yomal k. 10 months ago
    Situated in a calm,serene location perfect if you are looking to get away from the chaotic city scapes. The villas are spacious and well maintained. The staff is so friendly. Had dimmer at Jetwing Lighthouse which includes the rates and breakfast at Kurulubedda. Meals were delicious and more than enough.Had a great time there. Much recommended.

  • 4Manjitha T. 10 months ago
    Well-maintained property. Satisfied service. Foods are tasty. I went on my honeymoon. This day was a rainy day We couldn't have to walk around walking paths. I recommend perfect place for honeymoon

  • 5k.chamara R. 11 months ago
    The Location is perfect, food is average. They offered us a breakfast @the lighthouse hotel. Good Staff and they are adding a value to the word of " Hospitality ". Special thank to the manager Nishantha . Few things to be upgrade .Not answering the phones and etc.

  • 4Asanka A. 11 months ago
    I enjoyed the stay here, but there are a few things to note. The hotel is not very large & borders on a few private properties (mostly homes). I didn't hear any noise or had any disturbances, but that may become a possibility. The rooms are large and nice. However, i felt like certain maintenance was skipped (some blinds couldn't be opened as the chains just didn't do anything, our shower had the rain shower selector stuck). There is no espresso machine in the property (or it was not functioning when i visited), which i found super annoying. There is not much you can do in the hotel property as it's not very large - so you are either restricted to the pool, room or short walk up to the river. SPA which is located at jetwing lighthouse was not great. The prices was too much and the sessions not worth the price. We had a hard time understanding the therapists, as they didn't speak clear English and spoke very few words to convey the information. I however should reiterate, we did not have a single disturbance and had a very relaxing stay. For all the above shortcomings, the staff made up by being very enthusiastic and eagerness of them to help us out on each request. Everything was clean and spotless when we got the room in the first place. The food was excellent and we had a decent number of choices for the food. Even some of our "off the menu" requests were met without additional charge (your mileage may vary). During our stay we could even go to their larger property (jetwing lakehouse which is less than 1km away) and have any of the regular meals at no additional cost.

    Amazing place. The mature and setup of the place is great. You can't complain about food and drinks. Brilliant!

  • 5Sudara W. 1 year ago
    Great place for romantic weekend. The service is great and the food is great. Loved the stay. To talk about an improvement, I suggest to include mosquito repelent in the care kit. Overall the stay was wonderful

  • 4Sahan P. 1 year ago
    Amazing stay. Beautiful location. We were privileged to even see a peacock across our room. Mosquitoes are a problem, as expected ( not n your room ) So ill recommend anyone that wants to dine in not to go in the morning. The manager provided us with a 5 star service.

  • 5sajani s. 1 year ago
    If you are looking for a peaceful and calm environment to spend your vacation on, Kurulubedda is the right place to go. You feel very much one with nature with birds chirping in the mornings looking over the paddy fields. A special thanks to the manager, the chef and serving staff for giving us such a homely experience and being very flexible when it came to dining options.

  • 5Ashan S. 1 year ago
    The place is really well maintained and completely free of noises from vehicles. It's a good place to spend your time leisurely in an environment. Amidst the difficult time in Sri Lanka right now, I have never faced suchlike lower level of hospitality. Mentioning about staff, they are lovely and do their responsibilities wisely. My final verdict is that this is a better place to visit and spend your life in an surrounded environment.

  • 5Akhila p. 1 year ago
    We had such an amazing time at Jetwing Kurulubedda. We had dinner at a treehouse and a boat safari. Our villa had a separate private pool. The food is delicious and the staff is so down to earth. Guys visit this place. They will welcome you with open arms and you are going to enjoy yourself.

  • 4K. 1 year ago
    Absolutely loved our stay there. The place quiet and relaxing, and it is the perfect getaway from the bustling city. If you want to relax and unwind, surrounded by trees, in peace, then this is the perfect place! The villa with the plunge pool was very well maintained. Superb service by the staff - very friendly and helpful. We had our lunches and dinners served to the villa, and for breakfast (buffet) we decided to go to Jetwing Lighthouse.

  • 5Sam I. 1 year ago
    Beautiful place. The food was delicious and the surrounding was breathtaking. Would rather visit this place again once I visit Sri Lanka.

  • 5Thimantha R. 1 year ago
    Calm and quiet location to spend a vacation with your family! Delicious food! A friendly staff is there. If you would like to take a ride in the river, they will contact a third party person and it's very worthy!

  • 1lahiru p. 1 year ago
    Really unsatisfied. I have made a reservation for 19th november as a honeymoon package. Staff is ok and they tried to do their best. But the hotel has not arranged at least welcome drink. I have requested a shaving kit. But the answer is “out of stock” then one of the member asked “sir did u use big 1 or 2 ? I will try to buy it from outside”. Really unsatisfied. We hope they will arrange a bed decorations since the booking has mentioned as a honeymoon package. Really unsatisfied. Never recommend.

  • 5Nishal J. 1 year ago
    The place is great for a retreat from the city life and mostly the staff is exceptional, extremely friendly and helpful to whatever you might want. Definitely a place to check out !

  • 5Radeesha S. 1 year ago
    One of the iconic place I have ever been in the country! The staff were extremely attentive ,friendly and helpful! They went over and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend it to everyone !

  • 4Gihan W. 1 year ago
    Jetwing Kurulubedda has 06 rooms in a calm place. Actually there are many birds and really relaxing. However, this is under staffing and there's was a nearly 1 hr delay in food serving in every meal I requested. Staff is friendly and there's no problem with them.

  • 5Piumika R. 1 year ago
    We had a wonderful experience there. The villa was clean, very comfortable, and the staff was amazing. The meals were super delicious and served at Jetwing Lighthouse (which is nearly 600m away with a beautiful view of the sea). I highly recommend this hotel for nature lovers who are visiting down-south.

    One of the best hotels in Galle. Great and friendly staff. Great hospitality. Nice surrounding and peaceful.

  • 5Kasun F. 2 years ago
    We spent one night at the hotel and I would say; great place, great service, delicious food. It worth more than we paid and specially want to give the rating for the staff and their friendly service.

  • 5Charith R. B. 2 years ago
    In our All Jetwing Tour de Ceylon round trip, we stayed two nights in the pool villa. As expected, the environment is amazing, lots of birds around. The meals were really tasty. Ayu Spa at Jetwing lighthouse exceeded expectations. The must go boat safari by the sunrise is memorable. Cleanliness and service could have been improved.

  • 4Viraj G. 2 years ago
    Secluded area amidst a busy town. Great for a weekend getaway. Friendly staff. Good accommodation.

  • 4Buddhima W. 2 years ago
    I would like to thank you very much for providing a wonderful stay at Kurulubedda. That's was a nice place blended with the nature. The room and it's balcony was spacious. Food was good. Either you can have the meal at Jetwing Lighthouse or at Kurulubedda. The staff was very friendly. Also I would like to thank you for the "Kaduru" plant gift ! 🌱 The only minus point I have is the disturbance because of mosquitoes at night. 🦟 I would suggest you guys should provide a mosquito vaporizer for the room.
