Cinnamon Wild Yala Hotel
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"We only stayed in Cinnamon Wild for 1 night. Its one of the most popular hotels in Yala National Park so it is packed with groups and tourists from all over. If you are not into that, you better skip it! You are surrounded by nature and animal so it is very relaxing. It is located in the middle of the National Park so it was convenient to start a Safari from there (you can book at the hotel or anywhere else around it). The hotel gave a room free of charge to our driver - which is quite common in Sri Lanka - and a discount on the food. You are advised not to leave your room alone after 6pm to avoid encountering wild animals. The food.. International Buffet for dinner. Not great but good enough. It is the most expensive hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka though. I believe it is because of Yala being one of the most popular tourist spots in the country. "

Jetwing Yala
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"We travelled 12 days and stayed in 8 different hotels in Sri Lanka. This one dedinetly made it to the top one. 10 min from Yala National Park entrance, with beach and extremly long pool. The breakfeast was huge and quality of food also for dinner was excellent. We finally again could enjoy good espresso :), which is not always easy travelling through Sri Lanka. Rooms are big, with bathroom nearly the same size as the room. People working in the hotel have been very nice too. Definetly a place to come back again!!!"

Hotel Tamarind Tree
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"Nice hotel with great pool to relax after a long safari. Hotel offers great value for the money compared to a lot of other places in Sri Lanka. Staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. Average but ok food in the restaurant though it is a little pricey (Lack of alternative restaurants in walking distance). You should check with other safari operators for Yala Safaris as the price by the hotel seems to be a little high. "

Mahoora - Yala by Eco Team
Yala National Park Area,Yala - View on map
"I thoroughly enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle of the city (although you still do experience a bit of the bloodlust on the safari as tourists chase around in a bid to find wildlife). The staff were great, friendly and attentive. The food was pretty standard but that didn't bother us, there were bugs aplenty, and the mid-afternoon heat was almost unbearable. Most tourists stay a night, we stayed two, either way you don't stay long enough for any of the inconveniences to get to you. The fun of the safaris and the attention from the staff distracts you from all of that. The rustic, tented living is definitely an experience. Expect: pitch-black nights, fire torches, early morning safaris, bumpy roads, the big outdoors, the sun, good butlers, and a just completely different experience. It was good fun. It was a little pricey but I'm glad I went with Mahoora instead of just a regular hotel."

Saraii Village
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"Saraii Village was the most unique and amazing place we've ever stayed in. When I booked the place online, i was not sure what to expect but my family and i were thrilled to see this hideaway in a Werawilla. You come down a short distance down a dirt path (which was a little eroded due to the recent heavy rain) from the main road and you come up to a large garden with lots of trees, vegetable plots and flowers with the tree houses and mud chalets giving it a very surreal feel. I had booked the mud chalet which was large and beautiful but when my kids saw the tree houses they were so excited that the kind hotel manager offered to switch our reservation to the tree house. Thankfully the tree house was free that day. My kids went up to the tree house and we were unable to get them down for the next several hours. It was such a wonderful experience to sleep up on the tree house. It was so comfortable and the tree house was colorfully decorated with comfy cushions. Waking up on the tree house was amazing as the tree sways with the wind and you wake up for the singing of the birds, especially the peacocks. The hotel arranged for a Safari ride in Yala for us and the jeep picked us up by 5.30 for the morning game ride, which was the best experience ever, we had two sightings of leopard and quite a number of elephants too... The hotel gave us packed breakfast with bottles of water, which was very convenient for us. The jeep driver sorted out all our entrance requirements, which was great as we were still a bit sleepy. We were one of the first jeeps inside Yala and the ride was fantastic. I must say that Saraii had the best local varieties of food we've had on this trip. The food was the "real" Sri Lankan food. My daughter who doesn't much care for vegetables, had second helping of sri lankan vegetables, and wanted to know if we can take back some home. Saraii is for travelers like us who like to experience new things with a unique style of its own."

Tamarind Lake Hotel.
Kataragama,Yala - View on map
"Stayed here for 2 nights whist doing a safari in Yala National Park. The location is very pleasant on the lakeside and the staff do let you know that sometimes they get an early morning visit from crocodiles in the garden!! Our room was very large with high ceilings and was clean and tidy with a nice balcony overlooking the lake and swimming pool. The restaurant has an excellent a la carte menu, with enough choice to suit all tastes and very reasonably priced. We were up at 4 am for our safari and they kindly supplied us with a pack-up breakfast which was adequate. Only downside for me is that there was no bar, but you could get a beer with the evening meal. Overall a very pleasant hotel with very friendly staff."

Lavendish Okrin Hotel
Kataragama,Yala - View on map
"We changed five different hotels/guesthouses in our two week holiday in Sri Lanka. Hotel Okrin deserves the first place for a few reasons: conveniently located near the Yala park entrance, comfortable rooms, good restaurant, excellent value for money and...last but not least : very helpful and attentive staff! We loved it there and we definitely reccomend it."

More about Yala

Yala is located in Sri Lanka’s Moneragala District, home to the famous Yala National Park which is divided into five distinct blocks. The area is served by Mattala International Airport, offering connections to domestic and regional cities.

Of course, the biggest attraction here is Yala National Park, which is one of Sri Lanka’s most visited places and definitely worth a visit. The park is divided into five blocks, all of which are home to different greenery and animals, some of which serving as conservation sites for important animals such as the Sri Lankan elephant and leopard. Visiting the park is best done with a guide or a clear plan of which blocks to visit.

If there’s any time left after exploring the massive national park, a visit to Kirinda Beach may be a nice way to relax after spending days hiking and trekking around the park. There are several hotels concentrated around the beach, ranging in price and size from luxurious beach resorts to simple guesthouses to suit any need.
