Jetwing Surf was presented the gold award for the ‘Leading Surf Resort in South Asia’ at the South Asian Travel Awards 2020, which was held virtually on 15 December to celebrate the best of South Asian hospitality.
Jetwing Surf, an icon of sustainable luxury, is located on the east coast of Sri Lanka, minutes away from the globally acclaimed surfing point Arugam Bay. The hotel is designed to complement the environment around it and has been also recognised for its unique architecture. Gently resting upon the soft sands of Pottuvil Point, each cabana opens up to the tropical splendour of towering coconut trees and crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, complemented by the warmth of Jetwing Hotels’ legendary Sri Lankan hospitality.
The South Asian Travel Awards (SATA) has been recognising the best of South Asia’s hospitality and travel industry since 2016. The prestigious annual event honours stellar organisations and individuals in a wide array of categories. The annual search for South Asia’s most outstanding travel organisations spans a month each year from March to April, calling upon the industry professionals to name their preferred travel suppliers in the region who have risen above the competition and surpassed expectations. With the endorsement of their business peers, each and every SATA winner epitomises the highest standards of the region’s travel industry.
Family-owned and in the tourism industry for the past 47 years, Jetwing Hotels has surpassed expectation at every aspect. Building on their foundation of being passionate, as well as the experience of true, traditional Sri Lankan hospitality, constantly pioneering discoveries captures the essence of the brand. Such a strong statement and direction have enabled Jetwing Hotels to imagine, create and manage marvels and masterpieces, where distinctive design and elegant comfort complement each other and the environment. In line with the Jetwing Hotels Sustainable Strategy, across all properties sustainable and responsible practices are given precedence with resource efficiency, community upliftment and education, and awareness being some of our key focus areas.
