Cinnamon Wild Yala


Cinnamon Wild Yala puts location and wildlife at centre stage. Here, you’re encircled by native trees on the edge of a natural watering hole, and just five minutes’ walk from Palatupana Beach.

With easy access to the wildlife spotting, safaris and night drives found throughout Yala National Park and surrounding wilderness, Cinnamon Wild Yala is perfectly placed to fully explore this verdant region on the Sri Lankan coast. Though the resort itself lets the landscape do the talking, you’ll still find plenty of creature comforts here in the form of a lagoon-style swimming pool, rooftop bar and well-equipped chalets.

About Cinnamon Wild Yala

Book a chalet at Cinnamon Wild Yala and enjoy everything that Yala National Park and neighbouring reserves have to offer. There is a huge list of outdoor activities and guided excursions available, from night drives to safaris, boat tours to private picnics in the wild, and more. You can stroll to the soft sands of untouched Palatupana Beach in just a few minutes, and the natural watering hole alongside the property is known to attractive native wildlife, too. However, it’s not all about adventurous wildlife tours and nature hikes here. Cinnamon Wild Yala also boasts a large lagoon-style swimming pool and sun patio dotted with loungers, a spa offering Swedish massage and other relaxation therapies, a restaurant and rooftop bar with wonderful panoramic views. Mod-cons are also found throughout the rooms; think modern bathrooms, air conditioning, a mini bar and a furnished porch or veranda to unwind after an exciting day of discovery.
