One of the wonders of living in a tiny island nation is that the perfect getaway is not too far away. Sri Lanka caters to your every holiday mood and what better way to spend your vacation than to entail in the pristine blue waters and golden sandy beaches in the South. Passing the most popular traveler destination of Galle is Matara, home to the famous Polhena Beach. Situated not too far away from the town is Amaloh by Jetwing, which is the perfect blend of comfort and extravagance, coupled with a sense of escapism in view of the breathtaking Indian Ocean.
Matara is the ending point of Sri Lanka in the South and has a bearing of 160 km away from Colombo. Although it is the magnificent city of Galle that is heavily associated with the Colonial touch, a lesser known fact is that Matara got its name by the Portuguese who used to call it “Maturai”, which meant ‘great fortress’. Among the many edifices that were bestowed to Ceylon at the time is the lighthouse in Point Dondra, which to date stands gloriously overlooking the Indian Ocean. The lighthouse was built by the Dutch, and it is considered one of the most beautiful and oldest lighthouses in the country. Matara, even though not a popular traveler destination is home to numerous attractions, and is gaining popularity among beach lovers.
Amaloh by Jetwing is in every aspect reminiscent of all Jetwing properties being the home of Sri Lankan hospitality. It is a beautifully designed boutique hotel inclusive of 20 luxurious rooms in view of the mesmerizing waters taking on shades of blue. Its serene and secluded surrounding makes it the ideal home for family holidays. The design has elements of a unique colonial touch, which echoes the historical setting of the city. The rooms feature air conditioning, luxury rain shower with hot and cold water, mini bar, safety lockers, bathtub or Jacuzzis and many more room facilities upon request.
Dining at Amaloh by Jetwing will flatter your palate with the experienced chef catering to your every food delights. The culinary expertise of the chef will look into personalized cuisine at the main restaurant or more interestingly in the form of beach dining or garden dining. Further, the pool bar and rooftop bar are the perfect places to watch the sunset in the Indian Ocean, while enjoying a casual chat with your loved ones. While you may relax in style in the inviting pool, if you are an ardent fan of the beach the Polhena beach is walking distance from the hotel property. The Polhena beach is a form of pool in itself with the coral reef demarking the shallow end of the waters. If you are feeling adventurous this is the ideal beach to go snorkeling, and engage in many water sports including kayaking and riding jet skis.
