Jetwing Yala

38 acres of gorgeous grounds

This was the best hotel of the trip.

Dramatic ocean-view entrance

Jetwing Yala is located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka on the Indian Ocean, right outside Yala National Park.

Plenty of green


Restaurant patio on the beach

The main restaurant served an extravagant buffet of gourmet local fare and a second restaurant, Thambapanni, offered an Asian fusion menu and outdoor seating.

I never tired of the ocean views


View from our patio

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.

Set up for relaxation


Ocean and dunes right behind the drapes!

The room itself was basic and comfortable.

Open-air hallways


75 m pool


The bar overlooks the ocean

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.
