The Yala Adventure, surrounded by the wilderness of the deep south with scenic views of the serene waters of the Yoda Wewa, is a haven for nature lovers. With a range of accommodation to choose from and a wide variety of activities on offer, the hotel is ideal for families, couples or groups of friends who are keen to engage with wildlife.
The Yala Adventure prioritises on being an eco-friendly and bird friendly hotel and promotes environmental awareness to its guests, educating them on the importance of bio-diversity and minimising negative impacts on the environment.
Unlike most campsites around Yala National Park, the Yala Adventure offers many alternative activities, including tower rappelling, archery and kayaking, to keep guests entertained whilst they are not spotting leopards or bears during the game drives.
The Yala Adventure has three Luxury Tents, two Standard Rooms and two Deluxe Rooms. Tents and Deluxe Rooms can be converted into triples if necessary. All rooms and tents have a/c, Wi-Fi, cable TV with local and international channels and intercom telephones, as well as bathrooms with flushing toilets, hot and cold water and toiletries.

Why We Like It
We like the choice between rooms (with sofa) or tents and the location by a picturesque lake is excellent
The Yala Adventure is located in Yodakandiya, Tissamaharamaya, and the Palatupana entrance to Yala National Park is only a half hour drive from the hotel.
