The beautiful, manicured gardens ensure that guests have a nice time while strolling across the fresh grass laced with morning dew. While you relax on the balconies or the porch to your bedrooms, you can easily gaze at the stunning view outdoors that spans across the lush vegetation and the dazzling water of the ocean. The villa swimming pool is accessible to guests of the deluxe and master suites, as they can enjoy a communal space with the rest of their group.
There are comfortable and well-furnished living areas for guests, found on the porch with plush single-seater sofas and armchairs. These look out to the gardens at Nikara Yala, to give you a pleasant and charming view as you snuggle up with loved ones or with a good book. In the corner, you will find a bar where you can grab drinks to enjoy in the evening along with the fresh evening breeze for a cool and crisp ambiance. Guests also have access to the media room, which has L-shaped sofas with a flat-screen TV.
The property has been landscaped with care in order to infuse the outdoors with indoor living, so you can enjoy the weather and tropical atmosphere even while lounging in these living spaces. To complete the experience, guests can dine alfresco out in the open, to relish the fragrant air while also breathing in the fresh and clean breeze.
Along with the many amenities the villa offers, there are little things like foot massagers, mini bars, and other services that make it worth your while. The staff is generous and knows exactly how to keep you happy.

Located in Kirinda on the sandy stretch of Nidangala Beach, where you have the famous Nidangala Rock for sunset viewing, guests can do so many fun things in this area. There is the Yala National Park where you can spot leopards or the Bundala National Park, apt for birdwatchers and ornithologists. There is Great Basses Reef, a professional diving site, or you can enjoy a view of the Great Basses Lighthouse from the beach itself!
Lovely place to stay. The room is spacious clean and laid out. Nice terrace outside good to sit outside in the evening having tea coffee or bear. Swimming in the pool and looking over the ocean was truly marvelous and the restaurant and the bar also really good.
Nikara Yala is a wonderful spot on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. The hotel and grounds are beautifully presented and the staff a very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious with plenty of seafood options and the full board package was generous. We had a wonderful time relaxing here and only wished we could have stayed longer!
