 Relaxation:

Unwind in our pool or indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment at our specialized Balinese Azmaara Spa. Maybe you’ve brought a book along for company or purchased one of our coffee table collectors’ books on the Sri Lankan leopard? Why not read it one lazy afternoon on your private patio or terrace?

The Yala National Park is located amidst a rural village and its boundary has several hundred dairy farmers making a living. The craftiest predator, the leopard, often flicks young cattle and thus revenge attacks by farmers often create conflict.

Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts together with its team of in-house field naturalists deployed a conservation initiative namely, ‘Project Leopard’ to mitigate the issue. Thus far, over 55 steel pens have been donated to dairy farmers so that they can keep their livestock safe at night.

As part of our project we take you to meet a dairy farmer over a cup of Ceylon tea, assist him in his morning chores, help with the collection of milk and enjoy the time spent in the surrounding areas of the Yala National Park.

Inquire from the in house Naturalist / Front Office staff how you could make a donation for this worthy cause and be a part of sustainable tourism.
