    Our opinion

    Rustic accommodation immersed in Sri Lankan wildlife.

    Hotel description

    In a world of untamed beauty, Cinnamon Wild is a nature resort hotel set in ten acres of jungle bordering Yala National Park and the Indian Ocean. The resort offers eco-friendly hotel facilities and comfortable, air-conditioned chalets. This peaceful and solitary location is a haven for wildlife - migratory birds flock to the lagoon, the occasional elephant has been known to pass by, and it is possible to see wild boar and monkeys scampering away as you step out of your chalet. Five of the chalets are built close to the beach, though the thick vegetation obscures the sea view. The hotel’s observation deck commands panoramic views of the lagoon, sea, and undulating terrain. There is a swimming pool to cool off in after your jeep safari and a games room with full-size billiard table. Guests can enjoy cocktails at the pool bar and a selection of eastern and western dishes at the restaurant.


    Kirinda, outside the Yala National Park.
