Come next year, the folks behind Dilmah Tea and Resplendent Ceylon are set to open a third property on the edge of Yala National Park, a premier eco-tourism destination in Sri Lanka that teems with wildlife. Combining five-star living with the great outdoors, Wild Coast Tented Lodge will offer 28 tented Cocoon suites, each of which will boast panoramic jungle views and safari-chic furnishings. Some will even overlook the beach and come with private plunge pools, making it that much more difficult for guests to leave the property.
Housed in an open-air, bamboo-clad structure, the on-site bar and restaurant will serve a rotating menu of Sri Lankan delicacies and a refreshing array of sundowner cocktails. But if you’re searching for an epicurean experience that will help you get back in touch with your wild side, opt for a picnic on the dunes and tuck into a spread of scrumptious dishes as you watch the dusk settle over the vast Indian Ocean. From lectures and workshops to nature walks and bird-watching sessions, the lodge will also offer wilderness experiences aplenty, inviting visitors to discover the island-nation’s wealth of natural treasures.
