Wild animals can cross your path at night so you have to be walked to your bungalow by one of the staff! Wonderful food, a pool that has views of a lagoon with crocodiles, monkeys, wild boars...everything is around you. If you're a nature lover, this is your place. If you go to the 5am safari, they make you a...

Extraordinary experience in the gateway to one of the most important national parks in Sri Lanka. Surrounded by nature, immersed in the wild, you get to feel a taste of the safari you are about to embrace even before it starts. The common areas are very comfortable and you can enjoy a fully private experience in the bungalow style resort....

Stayed here for two nights as part of a Sri Lanka tour and had a jungle chalet which was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We were here on bed & breakfast basis so needed to purchase food - this is our only problem with the hotel. Breakfast was great and we needed an early 'packed breakfast' for a 5am safari...

Considering the size of this hotel and the fact that guests rarely spend more than a couple of nights here this is a very well run hotel. We were in the large beach villas and although we had stayed in high end accommodation throughout our stay in Sri Lanka the room facilities were probably one of the best (plenty of...

Cinamon Wild has 68 chalets, some close to the beach, some a raised wooden deck outside the room to lounge in and read a book or just observe the teaming wild life that is just outside (birds, lizards, monkeys,giant squirrels -Ratufa macroura, or even a family of wild boar if you are lucky, like we were). Rooms are extremely comfortable....

The rooms are lovely inside, with canopy net, big shower, great deck to while away time, wifi good. Pool is great, (temperature about 30C) with a view over the small lake where there is lots going on from...

This was our penultimate stop on our tour of Sri Lanka. The accommodation was in little huts with bedroom bathroom and veranda. Much more basic than the other hotels we stayed in but very comfortable. At night we had to be accompanied back to our room by a hotel employee in case we bumped into an elephant or wild boar!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cinnamon Wild after undergoing a brand enhancement is more than a resort; it is an extension of the Yala National park and is intended to be part of the National park. It is designed to represent rustic luxury, resembling a game lodge. Cinnamon Wild Yala exceeds guest expectations with interiors that give the camp look and feel, embedded with large trunk boxes, old vintage furniture, director's chairs and indigenous artwork. ... more   less
