Get closer to the wild - only 15 min from Yala NP, next to the beach!

Back of Beyond Safari Lodge Yala is a peaceful home to come back to, after a day of exploring. To rest on the open veranda with a cool natural breeze as the moon rises over the ocean, is to live the romance of the remote dry zone villages. There are 3 cottages with large open verandas for dining, lounging and sleeping; they can be booked separately or together: ‘Malittan’ (5 pers.), ‘Debara’ (7 pers.), 'Ehela' (3 pers.)

The staff were great and really friendly, and were helpful organising our safari which was also great. We were impressed by the size of the accommodation, and the location near Yala and the beach. Unfortunately it fell down a bit on the details - the fan was really noisy to try…
