Taru Villas - The Yala Lodge - RUHUNA
The Call of the Wild Beckons.
Our luxury boutique hotel in Yala is nestled amongst a garden of flowering shrubs and towering trees, creating a haven for those below its blanket of shade. Set amidst a community of “Chena” farmers and home to curious monkeys, posing peacocks and other exotic flora and fauna, we welcome you to sample the rugged wilderness of Yala National Park at our doorstep.
Our experienced Naturalist and Villa Guardian will anticipate and fulfil your personal preferences, be it, dietary requirements or experiential excursions, to ensure all your needs are met. The luxurious and comforting spaces of our villa create the perfect nooks for you to rest, relax and recuperate after a thrilling wildlife safari or a long journey. Lounge in our plush spaces where luxury and nature converge; by the pool or in our open-air living room. Retreat to the cooler confines of your private villa to recharge after a guided bush walk or an exciting game run, in search of the park’s most prestigious inhabitants, the leopard, the elephant and the sloth bear.
Taru Villas Yala offers exemplary service with a nod to Sri Lankan heritage and culture. Your journey in the tropics begins here.
