Since opening on the edges of Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park in 2013, Jetwing Yala hotel has established itself as one of the go-to destinations for those in pursuit of an adventurous getaway not too far from the region’s wildlife. Today the property is taking guests even closer to nature with the recent launch of its Jetwing Yala Tented Camp property, a luxury camp service comprising 10 tents pitched just 200 meters away from the main hotel. Designed with a rustic look and with views of the wild southern landscape, the tents blend seamlessly with their wild wood surroundings, taking guests on a unique camping experience without having to pass on the hotel’s luxury offerings, which includes a butler service to meet their needs ’round the clock.

Its proximity to the beach also allows the camp to offer guests a good balance of land and water activities, ranging from snorkeling, shipwreck diving at the Great Basses Reef to safari trips to the Yala National Park and the nearby Bundala and Udawalawe National Parks to sight leopards, elephants, sloth bears, and many more. When it comes to dining, options range from an al fresco dinner on the veranda, to a romantic dinner on the sand dunes by the sea or the hotel’s restaurants, which are just a short buggy ride away.
