It is a quite rare experience that you get such facility in Sri lanka, sailing in a small boat across a river in search of peaceful nature.The experience was unforgettable. It is a really good that jetwing hotel is maintaining this boat and giving a considerable attention for it as there are not much sailing trips available in rivers around...

The BEST experience I have had in a very long time.. The idea of sleeping on a 5 stars boat that has 2 rooms only (we were alone on the boat, it felt like we owned it which was perfect), and cruising through our meal to enjoy the EXTREMELY romantic views (Bentota River) , the delicious food , the friendly...

Very cool. No internet,no TV, just the two of us and the crew. Yea, the "3 hour cruise" that comes with each day was really more of a 2+ hour cruise with the last 30 minutes being verrrrrrry slow so as to stretch it out. Food was great, crew was great, bed very comfy and facilities very nice. Is it...

Absolutely amazing!. we spent the most beautiful time there. It was secluded, quiet and romantic. The houseboat was extremely silent even when cruising. And they cooked us the most delicious food everrrr. It did take them quiet a while but that was ok since they had mentioned that earlier. Early morning and evening you can hear the Buddhists praying in...

My wife and I visted Yathra by Jetwing for our anniversary (Oct 2014) and we were glad that we chose this place to celebrate. It was a unique experience and the service provided by the staff was amazing. The Captain was friendly and was happy to explained everything during the cruise. Thank you team Yathra.

Yaathra was nothing short of magnificent. And when I say that it ticked all our boxes of what we were looking for and more. Not only was the location superb, literally anchored in the Bentota Lake, but everything else was special. Our room was a one of two the boathouse has and it had all the mod coms plus great...

It's 5 star comfort in a operational house boat. The boat has two Air-conditioned bed rooms. Rooms are meant only for two persons as they are rather small but very well equipped. Two rooms in the boat. (Accommodation for a third person can be made with prior arrangement with the management.) Even thought about an Umbrella and a torch inside...
