What is JEEP

Family owned and in the tourism industry for the past 41 years, the name ‘Jetwing’ has long been associated with caring, and a commitment to hospitality as well as the environment. 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.

We at Jetwing believe that tourism cannot exist in isolation and only works well when a complex and intimate relationship with the local community strikes a harmonious balance. The Jetwing Eternal Earth Programme (JEEP) is the umbrella term used for all community and nature-based projects as well as sustainability initiatives undertaken as a responsible tourism initiative by Jetwing.

JEEP is split into the following four sections – Community Outreach Initiatives, Sustainability, Eco Projects and Humanitarian Programmes.
