The world renowned scientist Arthur C. Clarke noted that a ‘lifetime’ would not be enough to explore the ‘people, history, nature and art’ of Sri Lanka.
However one has to start somewhere and what could be a better starting point than Jetwing’s Kottukal Beach House which is located on the unspoilt beaches of Sri Lanka’s East coast. A beautiful boutique villa, Kottukal Beach House by Jetwing is situated in Arugam Bay, promises a stylish stay at one of the most picturesque places in the island – an experience made sweeter by thespectacular 20% discount available to all, on any basis booked.
This is a villa which encapsulates discrete service and personal luxury with its intimate four bedrooms, swaying palm trees and wide expanse of sand and surf. There are two bedrooms in the main house as well as two separate chalets. The bedrooms are well furnished in earthy tones and crisp white linen which is easy on the eye. Trellis work decorates the fanlights and four poster beds, blue and bamboo coloured slats all contribute to ensuring that guests feel both cosy and luxurious at the same time. Air conditioning beats the heat while a high ceiling adds to a feeling of spacious comfort. Wide mirrors on cut cement in the bathrooms and private balconies or terraces for each room encapsulate luxury and rustic living in one dynamic package.
Dine al-fresco on the beach with the waves rolling up onto the sand as you enjoy a delicious seafood fiesta. The breeze, the surf and the food combine to create a moment you will want to repeat during you stay at the villa. The flexible meal times and your own personal chef make it all the more desirable as you enjoy a BBQ on the beach or an intimate dinner for two.
While Kottukal Beach House by Jetwing has an amazing view and a private pool which is a hop step and a jump away from an East Coast beach to die for, the facilities do not stop there. It also provides daily housekeeping and laundry services that are made all the more useful if you want the staff to organize a private event for you at the villa or even a wedding ceremony for those in search of a more intimate event. As Sri Lanka’s leading hotel chain Jetwing aims to provide its guests with complete service which is able to handle diverse requests and needs in all its different locations. This boutique villa may be off the beaten track but it certainly does not skimp on its services so whether it be a yoga class or a body massage just make sure to ask and Jetwing will provide.
