Exotic beachfront jungle lodge in Sri Lanka is Coastal Living magazine’s latest glamping crush
Writes Marisa Spyker: The lodge is ideally located “where the Indian Ocean meets the jungle”, right next to Yala National Park and its leopards.
“By day, guests can attend lectures and workshops to learn about the resort’s fascinating jungle surroundings before venturing out on a safari-style tour of the wild.”
“Outside of the incredible safaris, the resort is a wonder in itself. Twenty-eight tented cocoons (the guest rooms) in groups of four each fan out, staggered, away from the resort’s public spaces.
“Each of the fabric-clad structures is designed to blend in with the surroundings, with the distinctive cocoon shape nodding to the smooth boulders that scatter the beach.
“Inside, luxurious details like vaulted ceilings, freestanding copper bathtubs, teak floors, and leather furniture come together to create a ‘colonial expedition chic’ vibe.”
Vaulted ceilings, freestanding copper bathtubs, teak floors, and leather furniture—plus air conditioning, WiFi, a mini bar, “and a sound system for playing your favorite jungle tunes”.
Outside, “this place definitely puts the glam in glamping, including spa services, gourmet Sri Lankan cuisine, private beachfront dinners, and plunge pools”.
“Up for an adventure? Rates (all-inclusive!) start in the $600s for two people, and come with all meals, drinks, and other amenities—plus a daily safari. Pretty wild deal, no?”
