With a total accommodation count of just 14 super-luxurious, contemporary villa-style cabins this exclusive resort property beckons the lover of comfort, wildlife, birds, beach and adventure. Sitting at the end of a purpose-built road, in a small clearing, this collection of exquisite freestanding units each offers a vast amount of space and an outdoor deck with private plunge pool. Being just on the edge of the Yala National Park where the jungle meets the sea you have a good chance of spotting elephants refreshing themselves in the warm ocean waters and you will find more bird species in the vicinity than most other places on earth. Guests have everything included here from meals to drinks to twice daily game drives and laundry; if privacy and seclusion are important to you consider that you are unlikely to see another soul on the beach unless it has a trunk and tail!
