Jetwing Yala is one of the newest additions to the area surrounding Sri Lanka’s most popular park, Yala. With 90 rooms and villas its also one of its largest, but with bright and extremely comfortable rooms, ocean views and an enviable location 15 minutes to the park entrance it’s not to be overlooked. In fact, we would consider this to be the most luxurious option Yala has to offer. There are three room options to choose from: Superior, Deluxe and Tented Villas. The Superior and Deluxe are incredibly similar; think crisp white walls, big beds, touches of turquoise and spacious contemporary bathrooms. The Deluxe Rooms are just a little bigger with slightly better views and bigger balconies. The Tented Villas sit slightly separately to the main area; these are large luxurious tents that are protected by a huge wooden structure. These boasts great bathrooms and rain showers. The main restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a beautiful open deck ideal for evening meals. You’ll also find a huge pool and a spa, ideal after a morning’s exhilarating safari. Despite being a little big and impersonal, we feel this is a good option and a great base from which to explore Yala National Park.
