The location is great and the hotel Organises take away breakfasts if you are leaving very early for the safari. The staff is very nice but service is generally slow. But it's a lovely property overall.

I really loved this resort. Its location is great for Yala National Park and it has animals in the grounds which I really enjoyed seeing. And a great design. At the end of the day I loved the cocktails in the bar.

              Perfect paradise”
              I couldn’t recommend this place any more - it is a perfect, luxury, eco paradise, set 5-10mins from Yala National Park, with all kinds of wild animals roaming through the grounds, near the infinite pool and on the beach - elephants, wild boar, monkeys (and cows)! The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. We extended our stay because we couldn’t bare to leave!

              Sanctuary in the Jungle”
              Jetwing Yala with its swing seats overlooking the sea and set on the edge of the Yala National Park is indeed a getaway. The whole trip though only a weekend worth was just enough to go back to Colombo rejuvenated and well fed. The breakfast covers the whole range and is quite exciting to be having your cup of coffee and glass of chilled sweet king coconut on a deck overlooking the jungle with superb service. The safari ride which of course stands as the highlight of the trip is pure FUN! Book your own safari jeep, equipped with two chilled glass bottles of water (courtesy of the eco-friendly Jetwing Yala) and we were off. Our driver was an expert driver maneuvering through the difficult terrain and having his eyes peeled for elephants, wild boar, deer, peacocks and to our delight a leopard. Overall, worth the money and worth the 5 hour drive.

              We enjoyed the hotel and everything it had to offer, i.e. amazing pool & pool bar, wonderful and spacious room with a huge balcony, access to a private beach, yummy breakfast, monkeys and wild pigs roaming around. I also highly recommend a half a day safari tour (a full day is a bit of an overkill, in my opinion) so that you get to enjoy the hotel facilities for the rest of that day :) Enjoy!

              Amazing property with disappointing food”
              Property wreaks of all the mod-cons a discerning traveller desires, (beautifully crafted rooms, amazing pool, proximity to the sea, natural environment bringing some the wildlife to the doorstep) but unfortunately the á la carte menus didn't live up to even a chef in training. If your meals are not included this would be your only option. My friend had food poisoning, I had massive stomach cramps to which we completely lost a day. I would stay well away from the Restaurant Thambapanni despite its great ambience. Buffet breakfast was somewhat acceptable with few forgivable errors that most Sri Lankan's would get it right (i.e. cooking crispy egg hopper, with a soft spongy middle and still have the egg cooked to perfection) Spa was Okay but could inherit some of the hotel interior, it felt a bit of a 2-3 star experience compared to the rest of the hotel. Would I stay there again? well definitely not for the price I paid.

              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!!!

Love the service by the staff. food is pricey though - and i didnt feel that it was justified for the price we were paying. especially so for the dune dining - it was abt USD300 for 2 pax. portions were huge, but taste and quality wasnt exceptional - they probably need more work on this.

              They've got great view from the restaurant and the bar!!! And the bed is really comfortable! The pool is nice, and you could see some animals around the pool. I saw a deer come to the pool for papaya, very cute. The stuffs were good, food not bad. Everything just felt good when our stay. But the hotel is not close to the beach, since the ocean is rough maybe that's the reason.

              I had a fantastic stay at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel pays attention to environment protection. Little details reflect the management standard, e.g. Put towel against the balcony door in case the rain comes in (rain season now with heavy thunderstorms daily), post card with the guest name and bananas in the room. Bed is extremely comfortable, which is what you need after bumping safari drive. I would highly recommend this hotel to guests planning to visit Yala. The only shame is that hotel didn't inform guests upon booking that Yala is closed until Oct 15.

              Nice room. Beautiful pool and beach. We were there when waves were big. Very impressive. Staff was ok. Charged us the buffet price for a boxed breakfast (one egg, some fried potatoes and fruit). So if you are going on safari, make sure you get back before 10:30 am or don't book the room with breakfast. Grounds are unique because wild animals - monkeys boar and buffalo can be seen from room.
