Solar Sunbathing – You can make a difference
by Jetwing · Published · Updated
When you go to a Jetwing hotel like Jetwing Lagoon not only do you get the best possible leisure experience along with stunning views of the lagoon on one side and the Indian Ocean the other, you also get to rest your mind and soul on the peaceful understanding that you’re at one with your environment through your tacit investment in a hotel that has strong respect for and commitment to preserving it for generations to come.
When you arrive at the hotel to the sound of pounding waves from the beach opposite the entrance with a sunset to die for and then enter through its gates to a view of the longest pool in Sri Lanka surrounded by beautiful landscaping and a range of wonderful accommodations. You become blissfully unaware of the considerable efforts that are being made behind the scenes to make your stay not only a healthy and rejuvenating experience with its new ayurveda treatment rooms, but also a rare one to be proud of in terms of your comparatively mouse-like carbon footprint.
The oasis-like swimming pool, which you can lounge in for as long as your heart desires, due to its amazing natural disinfection system using the separation of natural salt via electrolysis, whilst seeming extravagantly large at 100m long, is actually superbly efficient.
The use of local salt pans both negates the need to expensively import artificial chlorine from the Orient whilst also being kind to your eyes and saving your skin from dryness and irritation and in fact being healthy for your skin in much the same way as the Dead Sea. Five bags of salt per week are poured into the balancing tank, hidden under the garden right next to the pool, through the most unobtrusive hatch, by the highly trained team of the local staff who support the hotel and its customers in numerous ways, always taking care of their charges, that will be you, and the environment, your environment during your stay, in equal measure.
