For once, a place that doesn't deviate much from the pics :)
Absolutely gorgeous place; a beautiful sanctuary to relax-in amongst wild nocturnal deers and dancing peacocks in the morning. Apparently you can sometimes see elephants too at night. Clean spacious dorm type rooms with attached bathrooms. One with 6-beds and another with 4-beds. these were upstairs. Perfect for a 9-pax family like ours.
There's also another room downstairs.
Navin the owner was constantly in touch with us to ensure smooth check-in and that our needs/request duly noted.
Mr.Appu the caretaker and cook served us a good spread for dinner and the best breakfast of our entire trip. Tosai with condiments (chutney & curry) and milk hoppers. Excellent cook he is. Warm and friendly too. Even made rasam (indian herb soup) on demand for my grandma.
Hi son-in-law Mr.Sudesh was also very helpful in accommodating all our requests.
Overall, a fantastic place with superb service staff and cook.
My only regret is that we didn't have enough time to enjoy this place
If yer only staying for one night, then do check -in early and soak in the tranquility; pretty sure sunset will be awesome here :)
Definitely would return. Keep up the good work Navin. Thank you! Cheers!
If you want to experience the wildness up close, this is the place. Situated in Yala, this is the most adventurous place to be in.
This hotel is truly amazing and in harmony with nature. Real gem of Yala. You can see wild animals just in the territory of hotel. Rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Staff is really helpful and amazing.
Most recommended if you need to run away from the world and just enjoy nature and great food.
I was absolutely thrilled when I spent my first night at Tree Tops Yala, I woke up to the sounds of peacocks at about 6am and I could see them wandering around the environs from my balcony view room. It was such an exciting experience!The room was also very comfortable and had AC as well as fans, hot/cold water was available too. What I liked is that there were also sockets that could accommodate both types of plugs and yes there was also WIFI! There are two dorm style rooms and one triple room on the ground floor- perfect for families or friends.
The owner,Navin ,made sure my sister and I were comfortable and the cook, Appu and his family were really lovely and cooked as a tasty Sri Lankan breakfast and lunch, the good thing is that you can customise too.
The best thing about Tree Tops is the spectacular scenery and is located close to the lagoon and 15 minutes away from Yala National Park. For around Rs 4500 jeep can be organised for a group of about 7 to 8.
I really did not want to leave on the last day - will visit again!!!
Location is the first best thing of this hotel. It is located at the prime area right at the entrance of Yala Safari. Atmosphere and environment is completely green and breezy and gives best of fresh air and soothing pleasant mood. Food is as good as home made and delicious and hotel charges are comparatively economical. If you want a pleasant and comfortable stay at Yala then this is the right destination.
Tree Tops provided us with an extremely comfortable stay, located close to the Yala National Park and many other places of historical interest. The staff was friendly and accomadating and cooked good food. It's a quiet and tranquil place to chill out and down a few drink over a BBQ dinner.
Would highly recommend TreeTops. Navan whatsapped me before our trip to ask what meals we would like cooked, he also organised our safari and put us in contact with a driving company (world tours) where we organised a private driver for our whole 3 weeks travelling around Sri Lanka. We were a group of 8 girls. The chef, Appu, and his wife live at tree tops and looked after us so well, we had a delicious BBQ in the evening. We brought our own alcohol and put in fridge. The villa is amazing, everything brand new with excellent facilities and showers, and so spacious. It was very relaxing. There was a lot of beetles so would recommend bringing insect repellent. Navan had arranged the safari jeeps to pick us up which they did and brought us to yala national park which is 10 mins away. It was all so relaxing and easy and loved chilling there in the evenings. Also has driver accommodation. Unbelievable value for money, would highly recommend. 10/10.
Lovely place to relax. Very spacious bedroom. Food was excellent. Very friendly staff. Very close to Yala national park. A place to revisit without a doubt.
