    Hotel description

    With the natural wonders of the Yala National Park just on your doorstep, Jetwing Yala offers its guests an authentic experience of Sri Lanka’s incredible wildlife as well as a wholly relaxing environment. A sustainable ethos accompanies the location and activities on offer here, with access to both the coast and the National Park and a wellness centre that aims to improve the wellbeing of the resort’s guests. The hotel is home to one of the largest private solar parks in Sri Lanka, which supplies over 40% of the resort’s electricity. Rooms at Jetwing Yala are tastefully and elegantly decorated, with muted colours as well as vibrant feature tones. All rooms are spacious, with landscape views from the balcony or terrace, and the furnishings are distinctly modern. A range of bars cater for you throughout the day with refreshing drinks and snacks, and the restaurant and grill restaurant serve gastronomic dishes inspired by the eclectic flavours of the island, accompanied by fantastic sea views. During the day, venture into the Yala National Park, or kick back beside the swimming pool or on the beach.
