Jetwing Hotels and Villas introduces its latest addition to the eclectic portfolio, Jetwing Galle Heritage Home. The exclusive and private villa is a lovingly restored traditional Southern Sri Lankan manor, nestled in the historic city of Galle.
Drawing inspiration from the nation’s very own rich architectural heritage, the heritage villa has been meticulously restored to its former glory, serving as a living testament to the island’s traditions.

Hiran Cooray said, “Our recent transformation of a traditional Northern home in the heart of Jaffna – Jetwing Mahesa Bhawan, gave us the confidence to take on more similar projects, resulting in our latest opening of a heritage home in the Southern capital of Galle. As a company committed to Sri Lanka in every way, we are pleased to contribute to the restoration and preservation of heritage properties across the Emerald Isle and create new experiences for discerning travellers.”
