Vil Uyana Luxury Boutique Hotel - Dambulla

Luxurious Accommodation at Sri Lanka Holidays Jetwing Vil Uyana is in the form of 25 individual dwellings on stilts situated in three distinct habitats - water, paddy field and forest. These huge, luxurious dwellings, connected by wooden walkways, have timber flooring, ceilings of rattan and bamboo, and sloping roofs thatched with coconut palm. Furnished with luxurious king size beds, each dwelling has a private outdoor deck with scenic views and an outdoor dining area. Some have plunge pools on the deck and even private swimming pools. The bathrooms are spacious and elegantly designed with a large sunken bathtub and rain showers. Other facilities include a/c, IDD telephone, mini bar, 29” flat screen TV and satellite channels, coffee/tea making facilities, Bose DVD/CD Home Entertainment system, electronic safe, and even your own sarong, pair of reed slippers and umbrella.
With a deep satisfied sigh the dark cloak of night gives in to the break of day. In the distance a lone Nightjar bids a last farewell. The eastern sky brightens with a rosy blush as wispy swirls of blue mist lets go of the water and hangs still in the air. A gentle breeze parts its soft veil to offer a fleeting glimpse of dark steeped silhouettes rising up above the lake, the occasional glow of golden lamps still twinkle invitingly.

A member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Jetwing Vil Uyana is one of the most conveniently located hotels to the attractions of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle. Deep in the central plains of the island close to the famous Sigiriya Rock, the hotel is 163 km from the capital Colombo.
Although the journey is fairly long being around 5 – 6 hours, it is a truly inspiring one, taking you Northwards offering a glimpse of the amazing contrasts in climate and scenery you encounter further inland away from the popular beaches our island is so famed for. There are two main routes: the longer, more scenic route through the ancient hill country capital of Kandy or the shorter one through Kurunegala to Dambulla, then further into the rural heartland across lush paddy fields and villages into the hamlet of Rangirigama.
If you do not wish to opt for our airport pick up service, the route to Dambulla is well travelled – with public and private buses from the Colombo. Take a train to Habarana further north 18km away, if you care for an even more insightful ride.
