Jetwing Kandy Gallery 

Majesty in the Misty Hills

Step into a world of private butlers and luxury accommodations for a memorable riverside stay.

Stay in a quieter location in a village outside of Kandy that sits on the banks of the Mahaweli River and indulge in this modern and luxurious boutique hotel. There are just 26 rooms and suites at Jetwing Kandy Galley, arguably the perfect size for creating a sense of exclusivity and pampering. This decadent feeling is further elevated by a personal butler assigned to you when you check in, regardless of whether you choose a Deluxe Room or an upgraded suite. It's the perfect location for unwinding. Simply enjoy the verdant riverside surroundings from the sun-dappled patio around the infinity pool or slip off to the spa for a treatment expertly delivered by Balinese therapists.

Riverscape is Jetwing Kandy Gallery’s main restaurant, and you’ll have most of your meals here. There’s the option to make it a special night and book the Royal Table, an elegant private dining experience. The hotel is keen to showcase Kandy’s history through its culinary heritage, and an Authentically Sri Lankan menu spotlights traditional recipes passed down through generations of families in the hill capital.

The semi open-air restaurant serves a varied menu, but don’t miss the delicious local curries — presented with flair.

Signature Dining
Celebrating? A private meal can be arranged by the pool, on the lawn, or in the privacy of your room for a memorable evening.

The Balinese Ayu Spa offers a wide array of therapeutic Balinese treatments inspired by age-old practices. To try a bit of everything, there are multi-day packages to choose between.

Jetwing Kandy Gallery uses solar energy to power over 40% of its daily electricity needs. An effluent treatment plant on-site treats all the wastewater generated by hotel operations. Both aerobic and anaerobic biological processes are used to ensure that the wastewater is safe for irrigating the lush gardens on the property. The hotel recycles all organic waste on-site, producing biogas from food waste and compost for their gardens from garden waste, including a small organic garden, where native herbs and vegetables are grown. The hotel's chefs use the fresh produce to create regionally inspired dishes.
