Safari Lodge

Think luxury chalets in the wild and close to the beach

A luxury Hotel nestled in the heart of the wild close by to Yala national park and also at the edge of the south coast beach. Here you get some of Sri Lanka’s best wildlife roaming through the hotel itself. From wild boar sleeping under the rooms on stilts, monkeys running around the swimming pool to elephants and water buffalo roaming the grounds, you are sure to have an experience like never before. All whilst staying in magnificent comfort with brilliant service.

The main restaurant offers a variety of both Eastern and Western delicacies. The main bar faces the villu, where guests could enjoy their favourite local or international beverage over a friendly conversation and also offers a range of snacks and fresh fruit juices. The observation deck bar situated on the top floor of the hotel not only offers drinks to quench one's thirst, it also offers a 360° view of the forest and the Indian Ocean.

Designed to four star accommodation standards, the chalets are spacious and enjoy an almost 360 degree view of scrub jungle, located well away from the public spaces to give ample privacy but nevertheless in close proximity for fellowship and gatherings if needed. The rustic luxury of the well-appointed rooms will surely transcend your expectations and many lucky visitors have seen leopards on the rocks which border the hotel.

We keep you connected to the wild at all times. Hear the grunt of a wild boar, the call of a leopard and the ocean come together in perfect harmony as they lull you to sleep after a long day out on safari.

Jungle chalet

The jungle chalets are such an integrated part of this untamed resort that makes it one of the most intimate of the Yala National Park hotels, keeping you close to the wild. Watch out for the odd elephant, monkey or wild boar that may pass by! Preserving and living in harmony with the nature that surrounds us is a core value to each and everyone of us – this is why our Jungle Chalets blend in with the wild. The rooms feel rustic and luxurious simultaneously because opting to be in the jungle doesn’t mean you need to forego the comforts that make your stay a pleasant one.
