Certificate of Excellence
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 stayed one night as part of our trip around Sri Lanka and this was one of the hotels I'd been really looking forward to staying in. However, I was left a little disappointed by our stay. Whilst a great base for safari (pick up is literally a stone through from the hotel

Looking very much like a lodge in Africa, Cinnamon wild is a lovely experience with the service and accommodations top-notch.. Unfortunately time is of the morning Safari is far too crowded and not worth the experience.

First of all let me start by saying we loved this hotel and it’s location. We stayed for three nights and could have stayed longer. Our only complaint was the price of glasses or bottles of wine. We were charged the equivalent of £10.00 each for a small glass of red wine. Do not

Hi From Colombo airport , you would be best to travel by taxi but it takes about six hours , Most people would go to other parts of Sri Lanka first and stay there a few days such as Mandy or Gaulle , it would then only be a three hour journey. There is another air port less than an hour from Yala , but it is small for small planes !

Been to Cinnamon Wild 7 years running now (Jan/Feb)... we tend to stay 7 days and do 3 FULL day safaris. This gets you deeper into the park with a 2 hour rest stop mid-day near a toilet block. We use Suddha Priankara as driver with no extra spotter needed, Suddha is an expert at finding leopards and at a fraction of the cost booking through the hotel. Just ask for him at the jeep pick-up point for the next day's early start.

"closer to the front desk but not too close as the monkeys like to visit"
"Go for the Jungle Chalet!"
"The rooms are like Chalets. You have to walk through nature or might be able to take a car /jeep to the chalet."
"Get there early before it gets dark"
"choose a room closer to the restaurant"
