Please note that there is a possibility that The Yala National Park will be closed to the public from the 01st to the 30th of September as per the directive of the Wild Life Authority of Sri Lanka until further notice.
Alternate safaris will be made available to Udawalawe, Bundala and Lunugamvehera. Cinnamon Wild Yala will conduct its usual night drives with infra-red vision, nature walks with the first ever Beetle-Cam in South East Asia, and excursions to the Sithul Pawwa archeological site and the Three Lakes (Debaraveva, Yodha, Weva and Tissa Veva). Please contact us for more information.
Named as a tribute to the surrounding milieu of the Yala National Park which houses the highest density of leopards in Asia, Cinnamon Wild Yala sits adjacent to the park boundary and could very rightfully be positioned as an extension of the park. A property that was first established in 2002 as an eco-friendly resort for wildlife enthusiasts visiting the Yala National Park, Cinnamon Wild Yala opened its doors after an extensive re-construction and refurbishment as a world-class game lodge, conceptualizing the unique architectural features of the 'Wild' into its rustic exteriors and luxurious interiors.
The main restaurant offers a variety of both Eastern and Western delicacies. The main bar faces the villu, where guests could enjoy their favourite local or international beverage over a friendly conversation and also offers a range of snacks and fresh fruit juices. The observation deck bar situated on the top floor of the hotel not only offers drinks to quench one's thirst, it also offers a 360° view of the forest and the Indian Ocean.
Designed to four star accommodation standards, the chalets are spacious and enjoy an almost 360 degree view of scrub jungle, located well away from the public spaces to give ample privacy but nevertheless in close proximity for fellowship and gatherings if needed. The rustic luxury of the well-appointed rooms will surely transcend your expectations and many lucky visitors have seen leopards on the rocks which border the hotel.
