This is a hard review to write. My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in early March, ‘17. We wanted something that would provide a good base for exploring the region’s wildlife parks and unique culture. The Cadjun is one of a number of accommodations that bill themselves as nature lodges, and it is one of the most...

We absolutely loved this venue. It's nestled just up against Yala National Park and just a perfect location to start your safari experience. We stayed one night, arrived mid afternoon and the staff were excellent. Laid on a fantastic lunch by the pool. The grounds are stunning, you feel utterly surrounded by nature. There were grey monkeys running through the...

The staff at Cadjan Wild showed us amazing hospitality. They had service available for us 24 hours and even ran out to our Family bungalow for 6 person, in the middle of the night to scare off a Gecko (a small and harmless lizard) that my girlfriend was horrified of. As a food enthusiast I was keen to try the...

We booked the family bungalow for 6 of us and were amazed at the rustic styling that felt truly authentic to the nature and surroundings. Waking up to the wonderful range of exotic birds chirping just outside was really lovely. The service we experienced was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic, real local cuisine, the breakfast...

The room is basic but very clean with comfortable beds and bathroom and such an amazing jungle treehouse vibe. The dining area looks over the pool area and you can have privacy or take part in the festivities with other guests. So tranquil and remote - unlike anything i have ever seen before. Very close access to Yala park and...

We stayed 2 nights in the loft and 2 nights in the luxurious rooms. It was a contrast but we loved both. The staff is very helpfull and very interested. The location is very good. Yala park is their neighbour. It's luxus in the wild with a pool. Great.

13 of us stayed for 2 nights. The most outstanding thing is the service which was brilliant and attentive. The upstairs unit toilets need to be upgraded including the showers. The toilets for the downstair units are very nice. If you get a chance safari in block 5. Its different.

Two night stay at this simple eco friendly hotel was the best highlight during all my adventures in 2016. I loved every bit of the time I spent there. The rooms were very well maintained and so was the property. The food was off the charts and so was the service of a smiple workforce of 3 people. The property...

Having stayed under canvas on my previous visit to Yala the luxury of a solid cabin with air con and the shower was fantastic. Be under no illusion this is not a 5* hotel neither is it supposed to be! It gives you the feel of 'roughing it in the wild' but with more than a few comforts. A comfy...
