If you want to experience the wilderness up close, this is the place. Situated in the Yala National Park, this is the most adventurous place to be in. I once went down to the dining room to have breakfast, just to find a leopard on the dining table. Luckily it didn't see me, so I slowly backed up the stairs... More

Like most things in Sri Lanka, the staff here were incredibly friendly, no shortage of smile. I chose this location (stayed at Cinnamon Wild last time) as I liked the look of the rooms, very spacious with amazing views of the ocean. Unfortunately that's about as far as my positives go. What they don't tell you about is the gale... More

Stay clear. We where sitting in a traffic jam for 2 hours, no wonder the animals stay away. The park is nice, but when they let in hundreds of cars, it feels like inn the middle of a high way. Go another place

The view of the hotel is great. The staff was also great and helpful. This is a nice place to safari lovers. Also the rooms were good and comfortable. Food was great and tasty. Staff need to be more trained. But they are very helpful.

This a lovely location with a nice view. They had a nice view of the sea and the beach. For a safari experience this is the place. Rooms, not as comfortable as we expected. They need to think about them more. Like maintaining. Also staff has to be trained.

The hotel was comfortable and well appointed, although a little tired in places. The staff were very attentive, and the food was great but the really selling point for this hotel was the amazing location, right on the Yala National Park where we enjoyed three safari journeys and saw wild leopards. The pool was also very welcomed and we particularly... More

This is in a lovely site with wonderful views of beach and sea. It is all architectural designed but lacks maintenance and cleaning. Our bathroom flooded 3 times and then we were told we couldn't,t use the bath which was a shame as it had a lovely view. Also there was no safe or hair dryer. I had to ask... More

The Yala Safari Game Lodge is definitely the place to go to fully immerse yourself in the safari experience. It manages to simultaneous combine the experience of being in a comfortable and luxurious resort with the inescapable sense of being right in the heart of the wild; the lodges are well provisioned with TV, ammenities and air-conditioning, yet spaced out...
