Hotel Jetwing Yala (Tissamaharama, Sri Lanka)

About Jetwing Yala

Situated right on the beach, virtually in the Yala National Park, Jetwing Yala offers guests romantic safari-style accommodation in a lovely and ecologically responsible property. The rooms could best be described as “safari-chic”, with an interesting blend of the rustic and modern. Each features en-suite bathroom, minibar, separate seating area, tea/coffee station, in-room safe and satellite TV. The focal points are perhaps the pool terrace and the lovely beach right out front. For those looking for the ultimate relaxation, the spa centre has extensive amenities and treatments available. Motorists will find free on-site parking, and there is also free Wi-Fi available throughout. There are several restaurants, from the elegant Dining Room to the much more casual dining at The Lounge & Bar. But they all serve an interesting blend of Sri Lankan and international favourites. The main attractions are the beach out front, and of course Yala Park, one of Asia’s best, only about 2.5 miles away.

Positive Reviews


Wildlife right on the hotel grounds

Several guests were simply tickled pink by the fact that monkeys, and a lot of other wildlife, could be viewed right by the hotel's pool. They almost didn't need to go on a safari of Yala Park.


Excellent food in the restaurant

The hotel is a little remote, so some guests were a bit worried that if they didn't like the food, they would be left with very few options. Thankfully, they reported that the food was delicious, and there was a good variety available to suit many tastes.


Very relaxing environment

Guests seemed to experience an atmosphere of tranquil serenity at the hotel, even if they didn't go anywhere near the spa. It seems the natural environment and the building's design really created a very special atmosphere.

Negative Reviews


Very rough access road

The feedback regarding Jetwing Yala was overwhelmingly positive. Just about the only consistently mentioned negative point was that the access road to the property was very rough, with guest bouncing around in the transfer vehicle. It would seem that regular sedan cars might have some trouble negotiating the road.


Some possible staff issues

While the majority of guests did have good experiences with the hotel's staff, there were perhaps too many complaints of rudeness or disinterest to completely ignore. It seems that there are one or two staff members who really let their team down.


Some rooms very far from reception

A couple of guests pointed out that the complex is quite large, and that the rooms at the ends really are quite far from reception. Guests who dislike walking may need to request a closer room.
