Jetwing YALA is certainly not your average hotel. This is not to say it is below par. It is a nice place on the edge of YALA National Park. Comfortable - yes. Good food and service - yes. Wild boars and cattle outside your room - a bit unusual but no problem. The huge bathroom - again unusual but no problem. Would I stay here again - yes I would and you should too.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a view. One near the pool is nice but free shuttles will take you to more remote rooms.

We stayed here for 3 nights on our tour of the south of Sri Lanka. The hotel has a lovely setting and is near the park entrance. The staff were good, especially the room boys. The room was lovely with a great bathroom, a shame the AC wasn't great! The food and service in the restaurant was very good as was the packed breakfast. There is a nice bar area as well, either inside or outside, which was nice for a drink before dinner. The only gripe was the stray dogs that roam around the hotel. Then tend to bark and howl at night which isn't great if you're up at 0430 for a game drive. We don't know why there were barking but it made for broken nights sleep. There is also an issue with the wild elephants getting into the car park. This happened a couple of days before we visited and two cars were badly damaged. Again this is something that needs addressing otherwise people will stay at alternative hotels. Overall a lovely hotel but some issues that need ironing out.

Dear Guest,

Warmest greetings from all of us at Jetwing Yala. We are pleased to learn that you enjoyed your stay with us despite the fact that dogs had spoiled your sleep. They bark whenever wild animals trespassing hotel territory which is an advance warning for all those who walks in the night and pre information of rare sighting such as leopards arrival.We know it is too much for a tired guests who needs good night sleep and we do our best to overcome the issue.

Wild elephant arrival is common occurrence at all the hotels in the area and lot of guests enjoy the sightings from their room and the restaurant or bar. We advice all the chauffeurs not to leave any food in their vehicles and there are few who ignore these advises.

We thank you for taking time to write a review with lots of compliments. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Jetwing Yala again.

So we were moved from a rat infested tent to a superior room. Room was nice and clean. The shower area was open air. So having been spooked by rats in tent, kids were not willing to step into the bathroom. Nice swimming pool and a nice view too. Saw a snake whilst walking along the dune. Other than that, it was a pretty nice stay.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with family

Room we stayed in was a Superior Room. Very comfortable, clean and not too far from the main reception area. This is a big hotel! Some rooms were a distance from the main reception area. However all undercover, and flat walking. Bar area catered for meals bought up from the dining area downstairs. Beautiful deck for dinner under the stars. Breakfast was catered for in the bar area. All eating areas were inside or outside. Easy walk to the beach which also had turtle nests protected. We missed by 2 night for hatching. Beach had the provision for life savers on duty. Pool looked good just did not get enough time to use it. Staff excellent!

Room Tip: As far as we could see all rooms had a view of the pool and some of the ocean.
