The Wild. Leave only footprints-take only photos!
Excellent hotel , 5 mins from YALA national park. Good food, great attentive service and great rooms and pool. Prince took care of our room and and was very nice. ( They have drivers quarters too) Next to wilderness and we saw crocs, birds, monkeys and a leopard sighting! Peaceful - you can hear ocean waves but too rough to swim. Highly recommend and would go back.

Enjoy nature without really roughing it
We stayed at Cinnamon Wild for two nights bracketing a safari in Yala National Park. The hotel is perfect for its setting, comfortable but respectful of its natural surroundings. From the elephant grazing along the approach road to the crocodiles in the lagoon to the monkeys that overturned our balcony furniture, this place offered a chance to enjoy nature without really roughing it. Beds were wonderful, breakfast was delicious, and the beach was so close we could hear the surf at night.

A wonderful experience.
Our second trip to this fantastic resort. This time we stayed in a beach chalet, which is more like a luxury tree house. We saw crocodiles, wild pigs. Water buffaloes and monkeys at the Cinnamon Wild. A great experience.

Ideal safari Lodge
Great location..not for faint hearted as animals (elephants,wildboars and reptiles) roam around freely at night..friendly staff, great food.. Swimming pool cleanliness could've been better..

Honeymoon Trip
We stayed as part of a 3 week tour of Sri Lanka for our Honeymoon. The hotel is in a great location, inside the buffer zone of Yala NP, and as such very convenient for safaris in the park. Accomodation was in a lodge, which extremely clean and well maintained. You are really connected to nature here, with wild boar and the like freely wandering around. There were elephants through the grounds both nights we were there. The hotel insists on providing escorts back to the lodges after dark. Beautiful beach, although not safe for swimming. Lovely pool, and special mention to the Pool Guy who always took the guests across the bridge to beside the lagoon to see the crocs gathering in the evening time. Staff also very nice, and good (if a little weak & pricey) cocktails available - nice to have them on the rooftop bar at sunset. Our only complaint here was the food, which was just average. We opted for al-la-carte. We had stayed in Cinnamon Lodge in Habarana earlier in our trip, where we were all inclusive and had the buffet meals, and the food just did not compare.
