On arriving at the Wild Lotus we were a little worried about how remote it is but our reservations soon disappeared. The staff are wonderful. Soon after our arrival we went on a bird watching 'safari' with Kristin's father around his local neighbourhood. We barely saw any tourists and he is so knowledgeable and interesting. They also organised a morning safari in the park which was great and because we didn't get to see the elusive leopard we went out again in the evening and our tuk tuk safari was quite magical. The rooms are spacious and really stylish. Particularly loved the outside shower with frogs! The food was delicious and they organised a birthday cake for my husband which was so kind. Only slight comment was the bikes need upgrading but that is really minor. A really wonderful place!
Hey Kristin, thank you so much for taking care of me and my wife , we had such a good time and our room was beautiful. We loved the outdoor shower setup especially - frogs included! Sudu and Jayantha took good care of us and the food was amazing. Sudu even sourced gluten free hoppers for my wife who is coeliac, she was stoked! We will definitely recommend to anyone coming to the Yala region of Sri Lanka. A perfect place to complement a safari. Jayantha knows the Yala wildlife park like the back of his hand and the safari was awesome- saw a bear and mum and baby elephant right beside the truck! Thanks again Kristin and the team at WLV..
Perfect in every way. Easily the best accommodation and experience I’ve had in years. If you want to see Yala National Park then this place is for you. They take care of all safaris too.
