Safari Hotel Yala

Sri Lanka Safari Hotel Yala

This Sri Lanka Safari Hotel delivers an altogether different side of paradise with an unique Yala wildlife resort – Cinnamon Wild Yala. The rustic resort is located 335km from the airport and sits on the border of the Yala National Park, complete with a tribe of resident grey lemurs who might just think it fun to jump on your roof in the wee hours of the morning!
The road leading to the hotelis a narrow, dusty one, bordering the massive lake with crocodile, pelican and deer that live in perfect harmony with the hotel. Cinnamon Wild Yala’s strategic location also means that an elephant, wild boar and other feral friends come regularly to visit us from the park next door – and if you’re really lucky, a leopard may pass you by. Stand still, hold your breath and feel your heart pound in your chest. For the lover of the wilderness, the symbiosis of resort and wild will make you feel right at home and give you that rush of adrenalin you’re looking for.


If you’re yearning for a Yala wildlife hotel in Sri Lanka that provides memorable dining experiences right in the heart of the jungle, then Yala Wild is your ideal choice. As with everything else about out forest lodge, the dining experiences are very much connected to the wilderness that surrounds you. Climb a flight of wooden stairs above the reception and walk into Tuskers, the main restaurant that lets you dine by the trees, especially if you choose to sit on one of the outer decks. Climb yet another floor upwards to the viewing deck and rooftop bar. Maybe you’d prefer having a drink and ordering an A-la-Carte meal at Pug Marks, the jungle-themed bar on the ground floor. At Cinnamon Wild Yala, they are about great meals all the way, combining locally sourced food and spices with great taste and forest atmosphere that’s truly incomparable. They also offer great “destination dining” options that bring you that much closer to the call of the wild. 


What began as a single spa at Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo in 2009 has expanded into an internationally reputed, chain of spas that are exclusive to the Cinnamon experience across the island. Since winning the Sri Lanka Tourism Awards in 2010, Azmaara has extended its offering into the perfect awakening experience that makes Cinnamon Wild Yala the perfect combination of adventure and relaxation. Balinese therapists trained in both Balinese and Swedish healing techniques perform a series of treatments in 3 specially designed rooms, including two special couples’ treatment rooms. The SPA also house ‘Feet’, an express head & foot treatment centre, attached to Azmaara.
 Walk in and enjoy a cold drink while you go through the extensive menu and walk out refreshed with their special jaggery-based concoction.

The cabins in the jungle are just wonderful. The animals roaming around make you feel part of the nature. The pool right next to the lagoon and the view of the animals is just amazing. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is great! Lots of choices from a western and sri lankan buffet. Denise - Swizerland
