Event Details

Step into the Jetwing Lighthouse Hotel to marvel at legendary Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa’s interpretation of post-modern minimalism. As you enter, you will be spellbound by the sculptural staircase embellished by ornate bronze and copper balustrading by renowned artist Laki Senanayake depicting the historic battle of Randeniwala (1630) between Sri Lankan and Portuguese soldiers (ARTRA Magazine – Works of Laki Senanayake, Edition 64, 2023). Further, admire pieces by acclaimed artist Barbara Sansoni upon the backdrop of the entrance, and those of Ena de Silva in the ceilings of the hotel’s Coat of Arms Bar & Cardamom Café.
