Your Home Of Sri Lankan Hospitality At The Edge Of Wilderness

Sprawled over 38 acres of uncharted coastal wilderness; Jetwing Yala is the closest hotel to Sri Lanka’s most popular natural reserve. An icon of wild luxury among Yala National Park hotels, our home of Sri Lankan hospitality rests upon a peaceful shoreline in the deep south of our island. With characteristic dunes and an eternal blanket of sunshine that falls upon the habitat we share with spectacular creatures, Yala is undoubtedly one of the most exciting pockets of adventure in Sri Lanka.

Located in close proximity to the crossroads where our southern and eastern coasts meet, Yala is a 4-hour drive away from our capital of Colombo via the rapid convenience of the Southern Expressway. The journey through provincial greenery and coastal roads is one of the most scenic on our island, and is topped off with the pleasure of arriving in our resident grassland at the edge of Yala National Park.
