Jetwing Yala Hotel, Yala

  Official rating
Star-Rating-4-5   Distant Journeys rating

Perfectly positioned between the Indian Ocean and Yala National Park, Jetwing Yala Hotel sprawls over 38 acres of land bordering coastal wilderness at the end of Sri Lanka’s south eastern shores. Each hotel room boasts an open-air balcony or terrace to take full advantage of the glorious natural surroundings, and the cool, contemporary décor is accentuated by hues of red and green which echo the tropical landscape. The hotel enjoys direct beach access, and there is a host of leisure and wellness options within the hotel’s own grounds. Relax by the superb 75-metre-long swimming pool, or keep up your fitness regime in the modern, well-equipped gym. If you wish to simply unwind and relax, The Balinese Ayu Spa welcomes you with a range of traditional therapies.

As with other Jetwing properties, sustainable tourism is at the heart of the hotel’s ethos. Over 80% of the Jetwing Yala’s daytime electricity is provided by solar power, and transport around the hotel’s grounds is by electric buggies.

Dining options

The Restaurant at Jetwing Yala is the hotel’s main dining space, with spacious indoor and outdoor seating areas. An array of local and international delicacies is on offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you can watch the talented chefs work their magic at the live action stations. The Pool Bar is a welcome spot for a light bite to enjoy poolside, and guests who wander down to the beach can pull up a seat under the thatched roof of the Beach Bar to sip on a cold beer or exotic cocktail just a few feet away from the vast blue waters of the Indian Ocean. For Sri Lankan hospitality, Thambapanni restaurant specialises in Asian fusion cuisine with dishes inspired by Sri Lanka, India and beyond, using only the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.
