Vil Uyana Sri Lanka (Sigiriya)

“Luxury thatched cabanas set on stilts over a man made lake filled with nature. Huge rooms, large windows and decks overlooking the wetlands - perfect for birdwatching. Peaceful library, large infinity pool, and spa. A unique retreat in natural surroundings. ”

“Vil Uyana is a luxurious treat to be enjoyed at the end of a road trip or after long days of sightseeing. Allow at least two days as there is much to enjoy. The treehouses and the guesthouse on stilts with huge rooms and large windows and decks overlooking the water allow excellent birdwatching: eat breakfast watching sea eagles and Brahminy kites at close range (though quite a lot of London pigeons seem to have moved in too). A peaceful library sits over the water and there is a large infinity pool at marsh level. Opt for the Sri Lankan menu rather than Western food.”

They say

“Jetwing’s newest and most ambitious project located within 5km of the ‘8th Wonder of the World’-Sigiriya- is the creation of a truly ‘Lifestyle Hotel’, Jetwing Vil Uyana. The challenge of introducing a wetland system on reclaimed agricultural lands within the Dry Zone, providing the unique backdrop for this exciting new property. Drawing from the local, rural traditions, the buildings grow not out, but into the landscape. The ‘habitats’ naturalized by local flora and fauna will create the timelessness of a healthy ecosystem providing the setting for peace and tranquility. With the first man-made lakes since King Parakramabahu’s era in the 11th century, this exciting feature allows for the first time in Sri Lanka dwellings to be built over water.”
