Cinnamon delivers an altogether different side of paradise with our 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 hotel is 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.
We’ve got a choice of two excellent room options for you here at our Cinnamon Wild Yala resort amounting to 68 great places to stay when you’re with us. Book a Jungle Chalet or Beach Chalet, each sitting in the heart of the wilderness with interiors that will make it hard for you to leave! We offer the most sought after accommodation that hotels in Yala, Sri Lanka have to offer, keeping you connected to the wild at all times. Hear the grunt of a wild boar, the call of a leopard and the ocean come together in perfect harmony as they lull you to sleep after a long day out on safari.
If you’re yearning for a Yala 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 us. Climb a flight of wooden stairs above our reception and walk into Tuskers, our 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 our viewing deck and rooftop bar. Maybe you’d prefer having a drink and ordering an A-la-Carte meal at Pug Marks, our jungle-themed bar on the ground floor. At Cinnamon Wild Yala, we’re about great meals all the way, combining locally sourced food and spices with great taste and forest atmosphere that’s truly incomparable. We also offer great “destination dining” options that bring you that much closer to the call of the wild.
