Yuluka is very attractively designed built up a slope around huge boulders with lots of lush tropical plants. Yes, it is on the main road – but the cabanas are set back a bit and you don't really notice the traffic.
The cabanas are very nice with polished bamboo floors, exposed stonework inside, TV and a large bathroom (cold water). Lovely balcony with hammock for chilling out on. We actually saw much more wildlife from our balcony at Yuluka than we did in the park! Lots of different birds, butterflies, (poisonous!) frogs, little tiny monkeys etc. You can watch humming birds feeding as you eat your breakfast!
There is a swimming pool and also a small restaurant serving good food.
Wilmar was very kind and helpful and suggested all kinds of places that we could visit.
Logistics: Yuluka is only around a kilometre from the park entrance – but it's about another 5 km down a road to get to the walking tracks. For a small fee Wilmar will drive you past the entrance right to the walking tracks and pick you up later.
We certainly didn't regret our decision to stay at Yuluka rather than inside the park. Excellent value for money compared with other options nearby - and we we're very glad that we didn't have to lug our luggage down difficult paths into the park.
