The rustic resort is located 335km from the airport and sits on the border of the Yala National Park, complete with a tribe of resident grey lemurs who might just think it fun to jump on your roof in the wee hours of the morning!
The road leading to the hotel is a narrow, dusty one, bordering the massive lake with crocodile, pelican and deer that live in perfect harmony with the hotel. Cinnamon Wild Yala’s strategic location also means that an elephant, wild boar and other feral friends come regularly to visit us from the park next door – and if you’re really lucky, a leopard may pass you by.
