Wild Coast  
Tented Lodge

Simply put, Wild Coast Tented Lodge is paradise. Perfectly located on the Indian Ocean in the south of Sri Lanka, this luxury camp resort combines the romance of colonial camping with modern comfort and environmental awareness. Throw a daily-changing menu and sundowner cocktails to the mix, and you’ve got the dream holiday destination right there.

The suites are actually spacious fabric cocoons referencing the nearby geological features. They are furnished in the manner of early 20th century camping ads you might have found in the London News. Think camp chairs and tables, brass light fittings, copper plumbing and even a freestanding copper bath! With all the modern comforts like air conditioning, WiFi and even a wireless sound system, these tents are really pushing the definition of “camping”. Each suite has a glass wall for admiring the jungle or the sea views and the Pool Cocoons come with their own private pool.

Since the resort is practically inside the Yala National Park, a safari is a must while staying here. Safari rides leave twice daily with at least one personal ranger and Pasindu, the resident naturalist. If you are lucky you will see leopards that the park is most famous for. Expect also sloth bear, elephants, crocodiles, spotted deer, wild boar, water buffalo and a host of birdlife. And even if leaving your cocoon pool feels too hard, don't worry, many guests have seen langurs, buffalo, and wild boars near the water hole outside their suites. So keep your eyes peeled!
