Taste & Travel - - Dispatches - www.jetwingho­

The lux­ury ho­tel scene is on the rise in Sri Lanka which means food fans have even more op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore the coun­try’s rich and var­ied cui­sine. At the Owl and the Pussy­cat Ho­tel, a mem­ber of the Small Lux­ury Ho­tels of the World col­lec­tion, guests can en­joy fine din­ing as well as ca­sual beach fare in a his­toric set­ting near an­cient forts and Bud­dhist tem­ples. A new up­scale ad­di­tion is 94-room Jetwing Lake Re­sort of­fer­ing a con­tem­po­rary de­sign with views of Dam­bulla, home of the fa­mous Dam­bulla Cave Tem­ple and prox­im­ity to the Si­giriya Rock Fortress. This prop­erty fea­tures au­then­tic Sri Lankan cui­sine, such as cur­ries pre­pared from lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, as well as an open-air bar set within the for­est tree tops, com­ple­ment­ing its fo­cus on eco-friendly ar­chi­tec­ture and com­mit­ment to en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able tourism.
