Travelers' Choice
Cinnamon Wild after undergoing a brand enhancement is more than a resort; it is an extension of the Yala National park and is intended to be part of the National park. It is designed to represent rustic luxury, resembling a game lodge. Cinnamon Wild Yala exceeds guest expectations with interiors that give the camp look and feel, embedded with large trunk boxes, old vintage furniture, director's chairs and indigenous artwork.

We visited in month of July and stayed at Jungle Chalet far from the restuarant. This was my third time at this lovely nature resort and the experience was blissful. I love this place due to the blend with the nature and the feeling that you are in the midst of the jungle. We received very good customer care compared to my last visit and everyone was very polite. Food was bit limited this time, I guess due to Covid-19 conditions, but the restuarant staff was prompt and helpful. Pradeep has helped me to arranged some of my extra requirements and thanks for it. I will definitely visit this lovely place again.

One of the best hotel's we've stayed in. Really a joyful experience. The wild experience was really a different perspective to enjoy. The hotel staff was very friendly. Especially Roshan and the restaurant staff was very kind and supportive throughout our stay. Recommended for another stay and will definitely come back. Cheers

@cinnamonwildyala You have to stay here!!! Yes It is a real paradise. The whole vibe of the hotel is so positive because of the surrounding nature. Best thing about this hotel is, it is build around nature rather than on top of it. All the food they serve is delicious and incredible. You should try the ‘jungle fowl’ cocktail as it’s one of their signature cocktails. The buffet is perfect with almost everything you’d wish to eat. Location of this hotel is amazing! You really are in the jungle and its tranquil and beautiful. Nature is allowed to live in and around the resort without being drawn in, meaning you see natural behaviour everywhere. There are many groups of Crocodiles on the lake next to the hotel, that we saw every day.. As well as Elephants that live in the jungle bordering the resort. One morning the leopard also came to the main entrance gate. Don’t worry they don’t attack humans! Walking distance from the hotel room to the beach is spectacular. You are really looked after by the staff. The rooms are comfortable and beautiful. It gives you that jungle chalet feeling. Beautiful swimming pool facing the lake is visited by the elephants sometimes. Safari guys naturalists are very friendly and give their best to show you animals. We saw almost all. If you’re planning your holidays and if you love nature and wildlife, here is the place to stay. Guaranteed! @cinnamonwildyala

This is the must hotel to stay if you want to visit Yala National Park. We arrived late at nigth but didn't seem to be a problem for staff members. Our eleveted beautiful bungalow had all amenities of a 5* hotel which if you think being in the middle of the jungle, is a big task. The 24/7 security guards take any fears away so you can relax and enjoy nature. The Indian Ocean was only metres away and our backdrop from our room, which we took full advantage of during the day and relaxed by the scenic pool in the evening. All the above are great, but I belive the People are the real stars. I would never forget Chef Amila with his big smile on the first breakfast and his professionalism by remembering my order on the second day. The only regret,two night stay wasn't enough. Keep up the good work guys!!
