Ekho Safari Tissa
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"My Husband and I went to Sri Lanka for our 1 year Wedding anniversary. We were doing so much sightseeing we forgot the purpose of our trip until we stayed here. I had mentioned when booking that we would be celebrating our anniversary while staying and they had such lovely and thoughtful surprises for us. We got a really nice cold refreshing ginger ice tea upon arrival. They had gone to the trouble of spelling out their good wishes for us on the bed with coconut tree leaves and later that evening when we had finished our meal, all the waiters, the waitress and manager brought us a specially made anniversary cake with one candle for 1 year married. We got such a surprise I almost got emotional, they all congratulated us, we were so happy. Housekeeping staff were very nice too and noticed we had taken a flower into the room that we liked, the next day he had picked us a bunch and put them in a vase in our room. The room was always very clean, we never needed to ask for anything. I can't say enough good things about this Hotel and their staff. They should be very proud. They made our trip to Sri Lanka very memorable, memories we will cherish."

Livinya Holiday Resort
Kataragama,Yala - View on map
"This is an amazing place right in the heart of Kathargama. Facilities were limited but the pool was amazing and it is probably the best accommodation you can get in the area. Right outside the main temples, it was easy to visit the temples and be back for a swim in the pool. Mr Raju, one of the caretakers, took wonderful care of us and we felt right at home."

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. "

Yala Safari Camping Hotel
Kataragama,Yala - View on map
"We had two nights at yala safari camping with our two young children. The beauty and views from the main structure are indescribable. Just amazing. The staff are very attentive and tents are stunning. The staff even surprised me with a birthday cake. Then there was the food! This was just amazing. The chef kelum did such an amazing job and was the best food we had on our journey. Our safari was also great. Hugely recommended and worth the money. Thank you mahesh, Ravi, archi, kelum and all the other staff. "

Moon Light Guest House
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"Our experience at Moonlight was incredible from start to finish. If you can spend at least 2 nights, you will not regret your decision. This was one of the best places we stayed in Sri Lanka and will remember so many of the details for yesrato come. The food was incredible,we had a fish dinner and a huge Sri Lankan breakfast. We rode bikes to the lake and bird watched. We walked around the streets near Moonlight right after sunrise. We took a full day Safari. Everything was above and beyond and you must stay here, if you can."

Mandara Rosen Hotel
Yala Tissamaharama,Yala - View on map
"Good hotel near Kataragama with all required facilities and a pool with underwater music. Close proximity to the temple. Rooms are spacious and clean. The only negative point is the safari services arranged by the hotel. I would recommend the hotel 100%, but not it's safari services. The safari guy charged us unnecessarily even though he rejected the necessity of a guider although we have asked for a guider service. But he charged us for that service. Since I have been to Yala many times, I knew the surrounding, our driver took us in small routes and finally ended up after seeing few elephants. The negative point was, he was late to start the safari, he refused to have a guide, he didn't provide the receipt until I gave cash, he charged for guider service although hardly explained anything to us. hotel is recommended as it's my third stay there. But never use the safari service provide by hotels. Better to source something on your own by travelling to Yala. Do not reply on the hotel for Sarafi service. "
