Info : The Secret Yala

Affectionately known as “glamping”, comfy camping is becoming increasingly popular in Sri Lanka. The Secret Yala does it well, with an idyllic location close to warm sandy shores and yet in the heart of the jungle at the same time. Sleep in comfort and get to know the natural surroundings while reducing your environmental impact.

Yala National Park is a highly sought after jungle highlight in Sri Lanka. One of countless safaris will take you wildlife spotting through lush green jungles. At the end of a long day, relax under the stars with modern amenities, exotic Sri Lankan cuisine, and your own private butler.

Five spacious tents feature double and single beds, bathrooms and showers with running water, and private beach huts for sitting back and taking in the incredible views of the Indian Ocean. Splurge and book yourself a personalised butler to cook your favourite Sri Lankan specialty or to make your bed just the way you like it.

The Secret Yala is jungle immersion under the stars, but it doesn’t sacrifice modern amenities or great service in doing so. “Glamping” is not for those who can’t stand the heat or the odd insect bite, it’s for anyone who likes roughing it just enough, but needs a good shower and a comfortable bed too.


Eco/Adventure - This category covers gorgeous lodges in the jungle, comfortable safari camps and dreamy, but simple, beach cabanas. These places defy conventional categorisation: what is communing with nature to one person may be terrifying bugs to another! Many of these places are very comfortable and the service generally of a very high level - but please read the website review carefully and/or talk to us and be sure to have understood what you are letting yourselves in for!
