Jetwing Vil Uyana‘s Sustainable tourism (Green i.e., eco) credentials: Jetwing Youth Development Project (JYDP) 2006 This project won the PATA Grand Award 2007 for Training and Education Link to the hotel web site still to be provided.

Riolta Remarks by bunpeiris: The stupendous eco-oriented achievement of a hotel spread over 24 acres, consists of a wetland system of paddy fields, marshes & waterways reintroduced by a developer with tremendous pioneering spirit, imagination & daring. It is almost a shot at nature man made. Jetwing Vil Uyana experience encapsulates the consummate combination of the irrigation heritage & natural wonders of the island nation. The poperty in the extensive dry zone flat lands of the tropical island of Sri Lanka is immediately to the west of UNESCO World Heritage Site Lion Rock Citadel Sigiriya. “Jetwing Vil Uyana” meaning “garden of ponds” in Sinhalese is envisaged as a natural extension of ancient Sinhalese Irrigation by ancient Sinhalese kings who developed the ancient island of Sri Lanka.
