We’ve finally unearthed a luxury safari tented camp miles away from Kenya and Botswana! Set amidst the gorgeous white-washed beaches of Yala National Park in Sri Lanka, is the Wild Coast Tented Lodge. Luxury, stunning architecture and space all come in lavish abundance; while the surrounding beach and jungle form a part of your daily extracurriculars.
Afternoons are made of infinity pool tans, while evenings can be devoted to massages at their luxuriant spa. The open-air Den and Dining Pavilion honestly offers some of the delectable Sri-Lankan cuisine; while the sundowner cocktails on the sand dunes are unmissable. Their 28 tents resonate the personality of the egg-shaped boulders dotting the beach; while the unique and dome-shaped structures further enhance their character.
Our preferred pick would definitely be the cocoon pool suite. While teak floors, a freestanding copper bath tub and leather chairs dot the interiors, double-height ceilings and a four poster bed further accentuate the suite. Awe-inspiring views of the beach and the Indian Ocean greet you as you laze by your private plunge pool. Thankfully, there’s Wifi, a Sonos sound system and an en-suite coffee machine to entertain you after witnessing the stunning sunset.
The hotel has devised an all-inclusive package. So, we’re talking all meals, thankfully the in-room mini bar, a good selection of house wines and spirits, one daily game drive coupled with some limited laundry.
