Wild Coast Tented Lodge, Sri Lanka

In the southeast of Sri Lanka lies the Wild Coast Tented Lodge — a haven of cocoon-like tents placed at the edge of the jungle and beach. Together they form the shape of a leopard’s paw, a symbol of the Yala National Park whose wonders you can discover alongside the camp’s naturalist guides on a safari adventure. At the outposts, the suites overlook the Indian Ocean. Each arched structure, stretched in canvas and bearing stylish colonial expedition decor, is dotted with a private watering hole. Entwined in bamboo, the main building resembles a rock along the shore. It houses the bar, library and restaurant where a modern take on traditional Sri Lankan cuisine is served.
