Laya Safari Palatupana Reviews
Laya Safari - A great place to stay near Yala National Park Dec 27, 2015
I was looking for some places to stay close to Yala National Park so that I could get up early in the morning and able to enter the park by 6:00 am. Laya Safari was only 4 km away from the Park entrance so did not hesitate to book this place.
I think it was one of the best choice I have ever made in recent years to stay there. It was a Luxury resort and end up staying in a deluxe room overlooking endless turquoise water of the indian ocean from the bed as well as from the balcony. A large private beach which was such a wonderful place for morning / evening walks that definitely exceeded my expectation for the money I paid.
The pool was so beautiful and well positioned right next to the ocean looks like popped right out of the ocean, specially such a wonderful seen before dawn. Laying down in my bed I could see the waves after waves reaching out to the shore with roaring sound reminding me the power of the nature.
Unbelievable food at the hotel restaurant may be the best food in Sri Lanka. Housekeeping was excellent they came and made my bed late afternoon while I was enjoying watching the beautiful view from the balcony after a long day of safari.
If you want to get away, Laya Safari is possible the best place to be, I fully enjoyed my 2 nights stay at Laya and Highly recommend!
It’s about 175 km from Galle Dutch Fort (about 3+ hours of drive), about 100 km from Udawalawe National Park (2 hours drive) and 310 km from Colombo Bandaranaike International Airport (about 5 hours drive).
Definitely you need to have a private car, few bottle of beers and wine (may be) to fill up the refrigerator and absolutely can’t be a solo traveler like me.
