Chill and private resort by the beach

Posted 14-Oct-2016 on Hotels
Relaxing stay coupled with warm, intimate service only possible in a small property (5 suites only in tastefully restored seaside villa). Staff were all fantastic!

Everything about this hotel was just perfect. If you want individual attention and great service, this is the place. The staff, food and amenities were excellent.

Amazing hotel with wonderful staff

Posted 23-Sep-2014
This hotel is so beautiful and is exactly like their pictures. We've stayed in hotels all over the world and this is really something special. The staff are wonderful. They are really helpful but they also leave you alone when you want to just relax and enjoy the views. The food is top quality and everything is fresh. There are only a few guests so we always had the pool to ourselves and the beach in front is empty and beautiful. I wish I could live there!

Incredible relaxing retreat in a gorgeous location

Posted 18-Sep-2014 on Hotels
We stayed at Era Beach in September 2014 and had an incredible time. The staff could not do enough for you and the hotel was just perfect! Rooms were large, clean and well equipped and maintained daily. The restaurant served incredible food at really reasonable prices and the service was impeccable! I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

Off-Season stay

Posted 17-Sep-2014 on Hotels
We stayed for 3 nights at Era Beach. About 800 Rs to Galle Fort, worth the travel. Finding a beach to hangout at is hard during off-season as the tides are high and rough. PROS: The staff were very attentive and always want to help. The hotel is beautiful and relaxing. The food was great! CONS: The wifi was terrible. Only got any signal when near the office.

Era Beach Jetwing

Posted 13-Sep-2014 on Hotels
This is a small boutique hotel with only 8 rooms which used to be privately owned. At the time we stayed it was off season and only 4 of the rooms were occupied. An upside to the hotel was that the staff that were on duty were very effiicient and attentive. Unfortunately there were not really enough staff to man the restaurant, reception and the bar all at the same time. This meant that if you were not requiring the same service as the majority of the other guests at any particular time then it could be difficult to get someone to help you out. This may not be the case if you stay in peak season and the hotel is full. The guys tried really hard to make everything work but there was just not enough manpower. The rooms were large and comfortable and the bellboy responsible for servicing them was excellent and deserves special mention. The bar was reasonably well stocked and the restaurant in the hotel was nice but nothing out of the ordinary for a 4-star hotel. I would say that everything that is available around the hotel is a tuc-tuc ride away but not too far. The Japanese pagoda and Jungle beech are quite near, the rest of Galle about 10 minutes away by car. Overall I would say that the major shortcoming of the hotel in the off-season was a lack of service staff in the evening. A comment that was made by someone with experience of both this and the other Jetwing hotel in the area was that the other was a better experience. However, it is a little more expensive.
