We stayed here for 4 nights under a friend's recommendation and had a wonderful time. Manju, Benji, Namil & the team are great hosts who are always willing to go that extra mile! The accommodation is ideal for those looking for a peaceful break in between safaris. We personally did 2 safaris in both Yala & Udawalawe and loved coming back to the peace cottages for a well earned rest. The cottages are spacious with super comfy beds and a bar fridge to help keep those beers & snacks cold! The pool is super clean with a few sunbeds around it, making it great for afternoon chilling. I highly recommend a stay here and would book again.

Amazing place! Very nice atmosphere, superb food, super kind staff and clean, spacious and cosy cottages. The property is surrounded by nature so its very quiet, wild animals such as peacocks walk around. I would definitely recommend to stay here!

We visited Yala Peace Cottages as a jumping off point for a safari. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very nice looking hotel that was excellently managed. The rooms were all well equipped (eg hot water, a/c, mosquito nets, etc.) and very clean. More impressive was how wonderful the manager/owner was. He took a lot of pride in showing all of the guests some of the great aspects of the property. This place will only get better, they have planted a vegetable garden for the kitchen, building a pool and more. I would recommend this place to anyone going to Yala in a heartbeat. On a side note, if you are planning a safari the hotel can arrange one for you. We chose to go with another company (Imperial Safaris) that we found independently—huge mistake. I will provide a detailed review separately.
