Cinnamon Wild Yala


Wild by name, wild by nature… this Cinnamon property is secluded and perfectly placed for wildlife adventures.

Spanning ten acres of jungle and beaches, the beautiful Cinnamon Wild Yala boasts untamed beauty and the opportunity to spot numerous wildlife species – both at the resort and on a safari into the park itself. One of our favourite spots at this low-key property is the Rooftop Bar that gives you a bird’s-eye view of the sanctuary. You can also spot wildlife from the pool which overlooks the lake – this really is the perfect spot for animal lovers.

Tuskers is the resort's main restaurant. As you dine on local and international dishes, you can enjoy views of the jungle that surrounds the restaurant, and you may even see a passing elephant as you dine! For a pre-dinner cocktail as the sun goes down, the aforementioned Rooftop Bar is the perfect spot. Alternatively, there's the Pugmarks bar which has a sociable atmosphere - the perfect place to catch up with your fellow guests following your safari.

The rooms are located in numerous chalets throughout the grounds and their interiors have been designed by a local artist, something that really gives the property a sense of place. The Jungle Chalets are set within the verdant grounds of the resort while the Beach Chalets are just steps away from the Indian Ocean. The latter are also perched on stilts giving them a higher elevation.
