Yala - Yodakandiya

Yala - Yodakandiya

Taru Villas - Yala, our stylish oasis in the jungle, is the perfect place to soothe your senses after the heat and dust of a safari through the rugged terrain of Yala National Park. Our Yala bungalow is set in a small local village surrounded by traditional Chena farms (sustainable, small-scale, agriculture). This place invites your spirit to roam free amongst nature - where the sound of animals replaces the ambient noise of the city. You'll wake up to birdcalls and be awed by a sky full of stars at night. You can take a stroll in the gardens where you'll see lizards creep up branches, birds and squirrels peek at you through leaves and if you're lucky one of our resident peacocks will give you a performance to remember.


Here is a glance at what you can expect:

2 bedroom villa, with open-plan living areas, located within close proximity to the Yala National Park
King-size beds with plush linen; overhead fans & ACs; hot/cold rain showers; in-room safes
All meals and non-alcoholic beverages included
