Wine & Dine in the Wilderness

For a memorable dining experience right in the heart of the jungle, Yala Wild takes you to Tuskers, our main restaurant. It lets you dine by the trees, especially if you choose to sit on one of the outer decks. Climb another floor to reach the rooftop bar. For a drink and A-la-Carte meals choose Pug Mark, the jungle-themed bar on the ground floor. At Cinnamon Wild Yala, we offer great meals combining locally sourced food and spices with great taste and forest atmosphere that’s truly incomparable. We also offer great “destination dining” options that bring you that much closer to the call of the wild.

A Rooftop to the Wild

Climbing the stairs to our rooftop bar is really going to be worth your while. With panoramic views of the wilderness, ocean and lagoon that surround you, this is your best vantage point in the entire premises. If it’s a feral Yala sunset you’re looking for, then the Peacock is a great place to sip on cocktails as night falls over the wilderness. And for the photography buff, a quick morning walk upstairs will give you a great view of the rising sun.
