we are so happy that we got the chance to spend our Yala staycation at Leopard Nest and we truly enjoyed every single thing. The staff was amazing and friendly, Food was so good and we really cherished the candle light dinner that was organized by the staff. I had my first tree house experience and it was amazing. I would highly recommend leopard nest for all the travellers. Kudos to the team and we will surely visit you soon. Thank You!

We stayed two days at the Leopard Nest and it was such an exhilarating experience. Our holiday was relaxing and close to nature. Best of all was the BBQ dinner in the jungle under the stars. The staff made sure to arrange the dinner in a romantic and magical setting, complete with gas lamps for that extra rustic touch, as my friends were celebrating their anniversary that weekend. Their Sky Nest suite is highly recommended for a couple who is on their honeymoon or their anniversary. The campsite manager Mr. Geeth tried his best to make us comfortable and happy with the service that he and his team provided.

Me and My husband stayed in lepored nest during our visit to yala national park for 1 night in the Sky Nest during august 2020!! I’m not saying it’s really good ! To be honest it was not what i had in my mind when i go there ! Pictures on the internet are bit too exciting than the reality , but a good spot for a wild glamping experience. Room was bit too packed but considering it’s in the middle of a jungle, I guess that’s ok. Bathroom was ok , but a smell was coming through out our stay!! Due to the unpredictable weather ( they said that ) , we didn’t have dinner under the stars neither breakfast outside. Meals are ok , but there was a huge issue on the cleanliness of their plates and glasses. We had to ask them to re-wash them most of the times. We saw cats’ hair on our plates as well as cats walking on the bbq grill and pans while we were having dinner !! So the meals felt so disgusting!! They arranged an early morning safari for an additional price and safari was good!

A unique kind of experience with an adventurous touch. We had such a great experience glamping at yala. Leopard nest is a place where you meet the nature's serenity and it's something refreshing to all the naturalists out there. Special thanks to the friendly staff and specially, to the site manager Mr.Geeth,who made us feel that homely feeling throughout the stay with immense care and support. Also the chef and the housekeeper Azwer did a great job. Everything including food is commendable and highly recommend this unique experience for all naturalists out there who seek pleasure in simple yet elegant atmosphere.Highly recommended 😘😘😘
