“A little gem - great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stayed a couple of nights here in April 2013, using it as a base to see the Yala National Park. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean, well up to tourist standards - excellent beds. Very reasonably priced for the quality. However none of our group braved the tree house for a nights sleep, though the bed did look great! The food was quite excellent and the staff really obliging and keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

The bungalow is very well situated for tours to Yala where you stand a good chance of seeing most of Sri Lanka's wildlife in a couple of days - elephant, leopard, buffalo, deer and crocodile plus loads of birdlife. Actually had our best encounter with a leopard in the evening having left the Park and heading back to the bungalow - walking down the road!

The final comments on Yala Front Bungalow - an excellent place to stay!

we were spend a wonderful time at yala front bunglow during our 1 week stay there.It was the best place i ever visit in the world..
That was the best place for watching various kind of birds,see the wild animals such as elephant, leoprds, etc...

Night life at the Yala front Bungalow was unbelievable..woow...that was the greatest time of the day... We could enjoy much enough with the dinner music party...foods were so delicious....The tree house(the house build on a tree) was a new & unforgettable experience of our life time...

The excellent staff of the Yala Front Bungalow gave us the best service.

Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to get a nice experience.... Hope to visit you in next summer.....

It was an excellent experience. We got opportunity to see many elephants and couple of leopards. Perfect to bird watching. At the evening they offer brilliant experiences for the dinner with music. We really enjoyed specially at the evening party. Every day...so peaceful. Recommended to relax you mind. Tnx a lot for giving this nice experience.
