If you are interested in nature, love bird watching and want to get away in to a secluded spot on Earth, then the Galle hotel Jetwing Kurulubedda is an ideal place for you. It is a luxury boutique hotel with just two dwellings, creating total privacy and seclusion for those who desire these qualities in a holiday. Cut away from mainland, you will need to take a ride in the boat to get to this small patch of paddy filled village plot where the hotel in Galle is located, merging in to the surroundings. The location is picturesque, and allows for watching and listening to the chirping of various native and tropical birds, who frequent the adjoining paddy fields and surrounding woods. The name “Kurulu Bedda” translates to “Bird Forest”, aptly catching the theme surrounding the hotel.
The Galle Resort, In and Around
The Jetwing Kurulubedda is located adjoining a small tributary of one of the major rivers of Jetwing Sri Lanka, the “Ginn Ganga”. The surrounding area of the Galle hotel is engulfed in absolute calmness and you will only hear the sounds of nature in your ears. The two dwellings are built on stilts and contain a large bedroom suite, a spacious terrace and a grand plunge pool below deck. The dining pavilion overlooking the paddy fields will give you a great vantage of the golden grains swaying in the wind and the marshy wetlands which create ideal bird habitats. The lounge area is surrounded by nature and with a ramp built towards the edge of the river, where you can enjoy the surroundings to the maximum.
Jetwing Kurulubedda Experience
When you stay at Jetwing Kurulubedda, you are there to idle away your time and be pampered. You are here to experience the rustic way of Sri Lanka Jetwing village life and understand how self sufficient the nature will make you, in terms of food, water and other basic amenities. You are given a chance to experience all this within the cradle of luxury the Galle hotel ensures for the guests. If you like to go back in time, where modern day bathrooms were unheard of, drape a bathing cloth and draw your own bath from a pail in the well. Experience how refreshing the cool, unpolluted, crystal clear well water is, compared to the chlorinated, recycled water we are used to in our urban life style. Have a meal of rose colored rice, harvested from the nearby paddy fields, and taste the fish caught from the nearby sea. Feast on the vegetables and fruits so fresh and grown without a trace of pesticide or fertilizer. Staying at hotels in Galle is your chance to realize how simple life has been, before man has made it all very complicated with modernization of society.
Pampered All the Way
As a guest of Jetwing Kurulubedda, you will be the center of attention of the small but attentive hotel staff, whose sole objective would be to make you take back the most amazing memories of this stay. From refreshing massages at the edge of the river or the fields to home brewed bio tea and by the plunge pool and a bottle of champagne to get tipsy, Kurulubedda staff will go to great lengths to make your stay a great experience. They will take you around to nearby Jetwing villages, let you explore the temples, dwellings and the cottage crafts being made. If you are feeling too isolated, they will arrange for you to hop across to the sister hotel Jetwing Light House which is just half hour apart for a meal or a tea or just relaxation or excursions as whale watching. All in all, this is an ideal place where you will be treated to luxurious hospitality.
If seclusion is your desire and nature is in your heart, why not experience the smiles of warmth in the paradise isle of Jetwing Sri Lanka and listen to the birds sing at Kurulubedda in Galle.
