The most amazing stay enjoyed by myself and my partner. The rooms are gorgeous, the pool, beach and lake are perfect for wildlife spotting. Highly recommend. The food is also delicious and good value for money. The massage for the best I have ever had. Staff friendly although couldn't fix our aircon which was leaking. All in all a perfect...

We absolutely LOVED this place! We arrived in the afternoon and within 15 mins had seen monkeys playing by the pool, crocodiles 50m away and boars roaming around. The evening meal buffet was HUGE and so was the breakfast. Really impressed with the variety on offer. The staff were all really helpful. We only had one night booked and wanted...

We only had one night here and arrived rather late in the dark and tired. The property was beautifully lit up at night. We ate a la carte and the food and service was excellent. We liked the room/chalet,was looking a little tired but had everything you need and was comfortable. As we were up very early for our Safari...

The location of the property is fabulous and it is very well managed and run. The room and bathroom very clean, well presented and comfortable. Only problem is a lack of lighting for reading at night. The room is very dark. Staff were great and always willing to help with any issue. Caters well to big buses full of people....

Myself and three friends stayed at the cinnamon wild yala, as a base for our safari trip. As soon as we arrived we were met with very attentive staff, a cool towel and some drinks (a nice touch). We arrived at night, which meant we were taken to our room in the pitch black through the wilderness, which was a...

A wonderful place to be in a very warm weather. My expectations were met by the team who work very hard to please their guests. Special mention to Ashfaq(FOM) who helped us from the time of the room booking till the time of our departure. He even went out of his way to help us to secure a room at...

The staff members were very helpful and pleasant from the very moment that we arrived and always made sure that we have a good time and ensured our...

Cinnamon Wild gave us a very warm welcome with drinks and cool towels before showing us to our chalet with a very nice walk though a wooded area. It was also advised to have an escort after dark to protect us from wild animals!! The staff were very professional and friendly and meals were very tasty with lots of variety....

We were so thrilled with our previous visit in 2015 that we couldn't wait to get back - this time for 7 nights (most stays are only 2 or 3 which is definitely NOT enough). We opted for the Beach Rooms - there are only 8 of these , on stilts and with a (limited) sea view. They get the...

First, we feel qualified to write this report as we are travelling extensively for pleasure in Asia, South America, japan and Europe. We do only 5 star boutique hotels or small luxury resorts and rate on such comparable basis. We felt a bit out of sync here, as this place seems to cater mainly for families and big group tours...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cinnamon Wild after undergoing a brand enhancement is more than a resort; it is an extension of the Yala National park and is intended to be part of the National park. It is designed to represent rustic luxury, resembling a game lodge. Cinnamon Wild Yala exceeds guest expectations with interiors that give the camp look and feel, embedded with large trunk boxes, old vintage furniture, director's chairs and indigenous artwork. ... more   less
