Expect to forgo the experience

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Booked Kurulubedda for 4 on Expedia but the reception staff informed us that they could accommodate only two. Check in is at the affiliated larger property Lighthouse. The reception staff at the Lighthouse were trying to make it out that we should have known that the Kururulbedda property cannot accommodate 4 people in one villa. After a lot of negotiating, management intervened to accommodate the party of four at the Jetwing Lighthouse. However, the rooms assigned at the Lighthouse were not the best with little to no privacy when the room windows were kept open. The restaurant staff are excellent the and other facilities such as the pool are OK at the Lighthouse. The management at Jetwing need to make sure that correct information is given to travel agencies such as Expedia so that the customer is not inconvienced and does not lose out on the expected experience.

Romantic hideaway

Posted Jul 25, 2012
Pros: Secludeness
Cons: No facilities
Location: Galle is perfect for walking, eating, doing a but of shopping .... 2km away ...
The ideal spot for a romantic hideaway .... it has no restaurant or other facilities, breakfast can be ordered .... one can use the superb pool at the lighthouse hotel (1km away) ... and also the restaurants there for the board purchased .... very humid ... you would stay mostly in your room I would say ... or walking the gardens with local produce outside ... not recommended for a single lady ... due to remoteness ....

Kurulubedda or not to bedda!

Posted Apr 3, 2012
Pros: The trees, birds, monkeys & plunge pool
Cons: very poor lighting at night and a feeling of neglect.
Location: In a small village a 5 minute tuk tuk ride from the Jetwing Lighthouse by a river.
Kurulubedda is an anexe of the excellent Jetwing Lighthouse, we booked Kuru' for 6 nights after a weeks touring in Sri Lanka. Luckily this was reduced to 3 after the Lighthouse found a room for us for 3 nights. Kuru feels a bit neglected and although it trades on being 'in the jungle' it isnt really. The houses are OK and the view good and you are surrounded by trees alrthough we had a view of tower block over the trees. There is a chef who tried very hard to please but his recourses are limited and food no more than average and no beer! OK for a couple of nights for honeymooners I would say but not an experience we would repeat.
