Wild CoasT TENTED LODGE, Yala
Located not far from the borders of Yala National Park, the spectacular 28 luxury domed tents that make up Wild Coast is where the jungle meets a rugged, empty beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. Wild Coast Lodge’s unique design and exquisite attention to detail makes it one of the most stylish properties in Yala, if not Sri Lanka; its clever use of materials allows each of the tents (called Cocoons and Urchins) to take on the characteristic of surrounding rocks and boulders. It’s almost hard to believe that a tented camp could be so luxurious; each Cocoon and Urchin have all the luxury five star comforts of a resort with state-of-the art amenities including air-conditioning, and the resort features an enormous free-form swimming pool. After an eventful morning and afternoon game drives with the expert in-house naturalist team, opt for picnics al fresco on the sand dunes or sundowner cocktails, and an authentic ever-changing Sri Lankan gourmet menu.
