There is a growing trend for eco-luxe holidays, as families who love spoiling themselves with luxury (who doesn't?) increasingly also want to care for the planet while they travel.
Agro-tourism is a term used to describe working farms which invite tourists to come and stay and get involved. Jetwing Kaduruketha is the very first ago-tourism resort in Sri Lanka. The stunning resort has been built based on sustainable design principles and is nestled in an environment of lush paddy fields and mountain ranges.
While staying at Jetwing Kaduruketha has the feel of authentic Sri Lankan village life, don't worry, you'll also find all the facilities you need for a stress-free family holiday, including an on-site restaurant, an outdoor pool, a full concierge service and of course, free WiFi.
The resort offers 25 dwellings, spaced out over an expanse of 60 acres, each surrounded by forest and paddy fields which provide privacy. A major portion of the land on the resort has been given over to the cultivation and harvesting of paddy, so guests can experience the culture and daily life of a typical Sri Lankan farming community. Indeed, the whole resort was inspired by the simplicity of Sri Lankan village life and traditional Sri Lankan hospitality.
Jetwing Kaduruketha is located in the crossroads town of Wellawaya, where plenty of adventure and discovery awaits – from soaring waterfalls to ancient temples, to a whole host of exciting excursions.
The Jetwing family is expanding across Sri Lanka and in November 2016 the first ever hotel in the commercial capital of Colombo will open its doors. The five star Jetwing Colombo Seven will boast 70 rooms and 28 serviced apartments and this impressive hotel is set to be an iconic piece of the ever expanding Colombo skyline.
Jetwing Lake in Dambulla will follow suit, with 90 rooms and 4 suites overlooking a beautiful man-made lake. The resort will have a dedicated Chinese restaurant, along with a spa and gym.
For a holiday with rustic charm, bags of character and a stylish simplicity, Jetwing Kaduruketha and its new sister Jetwings resorts, offer idyllic simplicity.
And if all that doesn't convince you, children under six years stays free of charge at Jetwing Kaduruketha.
