Paddy/Marsh Dwelling at Jetwing Vil Uyana, Sigiriya

Jetwing at its very essence is a family owned Sri Lankan company. There is a saying that “the best way to experience a country is by living with a local family”; and at Jetwing such an experience is truly yours when you entrust your holiday in Sri Lanka with us. We stand out indeed, with a culture firmly rooted in family values which dates back to the founder, Herbert Cooray. Now, his two children continue tradition to give a visitor to our shores an opportunity to experience true, traditional Sri Lankan hospitality; and are ably supported by a family of associates who believe in passion, humility, integrity and tenacity.

Founded in 1980, the Jetwing Family takes immense pleasure and pride to showcase their home to visitors from around the world. With such diversity and variety, this little island provides ample opportunities for our professional and experienced team to cater to the discerning visitor. With many accolades received from around the world who have been mesmerized by the beauty of Sri Lanka and the hospitality of our people and the Jetwing team, we constantly seek to enhance it by carefully selecting other partner suppliers. Our mission is to ensure the best experience of this magnificent country, irrespective of budget.

Our ability to deliver excellence in our chosen profession is based on the following:

  • We place a premium on providing a “legendary” service
  • We provide excellent value for money
  • We perform to the highest standards possible and always strive to improve
  • We pride ourselves on reliability
  • We have the experience of 32 years and counting
  • We have a well maintained fleet of vehicles and source the best available when required

Over the past four decades, Jetwing has remained committed to uplifting lives, developing communities, and engaging in sustainable practices to benefit the environment.

Sri Lanka is a land known and renowned for her rich biodiversity, from the elephant to the whale to the leopard and sloth bear. Through our chauffer guides and guides, we seek to create awareness and educate guests, local communities and schoolchildren regarding the issues facing each species. With this in mind, in all our practices we never will directly market, promote, or endorse the use of animals – especially elephants as entertainment or at private functions. Our approach is to discourage third parties to do so as well, to the best of our ability.

The Jetwing family is against cruelty towards life in any form, and we stand with you on this issue. Together, we can make Sri Lanka the home of hospitality for both man and nature.
