This was the best hotel of the trip.
Jetwing Yala is located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka on the Indian Ocean, right outside Yala National Park.
The main restaurant served an extravagant buffet of gourmet local fare and a second restaurant, Thambapanni, offered an Asian fusion menu and outdoor seating.
We loved having a room with a patio right on the ocean. Definitely request one of those! The view of the dunes and the water was spectacular.
The room itself was basic and comfortable.
The bar offered a picturesque setting, but it kept very minimal hours, the bartender mixed drinks that were either too weak or too strong, and the pool table was unusable due to missing balls.
But, of course, we were much more interested in day safaris and enjoying the grounds to be too picky about any hotel oddities.Tweet
