Kithala Resort

Near Yala National Park | First Class

In a wonderfully restful rural setting, the Kithala Resort is the ideal base from which to explore Yala National Park and the sacred jungle shrine of Kataragama.

Close to the pleasant town of Tissamaharama, large lakes and man-made reservoirs, forested national parks and paddy fields provide a scenic backdrop. There’s even a small lake in the hotel grounds that’s home to a family of ducks and geese.

Within the resort, facilities include a charming restaurant that serves a menu of Sri Lankan dishes and western food, as well as an informal bar that offers surprisingly good cocktails. The piece de resistance has to be the swimming pool with its paddy field views: perfect for a refreshing dip after a Yala safari. Those views can also be enjoyed from the private balcony or terrace of each of the rooms. Accommodation is of a good size, simple yet stylish, décor is contemporary with hardwood furnishing, white washed walls and a splash of warm colouring.
