The resort is close to the Yala sanctuary. There is greenery all around, and a lot of insects too (as a natural corollary). But we... More

We were staying in Ahungalla and decided to go to Yala for Safari. We didnt have a reservation however we called the hotel. The reception boy handled us well however we were insisting on a discount and he was not able to meet us our expectation. We were calling other hotels however I got a call from the Elephant Reach...

First impressions were very good - cool towel and drink on arrival and friendly welcoming staff. Grounds looked lovely and well set out, but downhill from there! Our chalet was very basic and tired. Fridge locked for some reason and safe didn't work.The room looked clean on the surface, but shelves had old dirty paper on them, with dead mozzies!... More

The food is divine and the hospitality is excellent. The staff are extremely friendly and kind. The property is situated close to the Yala... More

Luxury safari environment that ensures you get a dose of nature in a serene and we'll catered hotel. We really enjoyed the hospitality the earthy simple and authentic cuisine and the array of animals that are part of the ecosystem. Certainly a place we will visit again.

Great hotel close to Yala National Park in a lush tropical setting with very well maintained garden. We were welcomed with a wet washcloth and juice. It appears as though all the rooms are the same size and they are pretty big!! They have mix of chalets and superior rooms, all have garden / swimming pool view. We stayed in... More
