This stylish 2-bedroom oasis in the serene rural countryside around Sri Lanka’s best-loved Wildlife Sanctuary, is the perfect place to soothe your senses after the heat and dust of a safari through the rugged terrain of Yala National Park. This private villa is set in a small village surrounded by traditional Chena farms (sustainable, small-scale, agriculture) located within close proximity to Yala National Park (conveniently located for access to the main Block 1, as well as Block 4 & 5, preferred by wildlife aficionados for its less crowded atmosphere and special wildlife-viewing experiences).
Taru Villas- Yala invites you to get off the beaten track and relax amongst nature – where bird-call and the rustle of wind in the trees replaces the shrill noise of the city. You’ll wake up in luxurious comfort to distant chants from the village temple and be awed by a sky full of stars at night. You can take a stroll in the 4-acre gardens and observe squirrels, birds, and small animals in their natural setting and if you’re lucky a visiting peacock will give you a performance to remember.
At Taru Villas – Yala we’d like you to feel at home, so our menus are flexible to your preference. From our famous Eggs Benedict breakfast, to our outstanding Sri Lankan cuisine, guests often rate Taru Villas fare as a highlight of their holiday in Sri Lanka, and their reviews speak for themselves.
We take advantage of our location in the quiet countryside of the Deep South of this island and source only the freshest produce from nearby Chena cultivators and small local suppliers.
Please feel free to speak to your resident chef and ask for recommendations – we try to serve dishes to serve a variety of palates and look forward to seeing out guests satisfied smiles.
