Yala National Park, Sri Lanka

Wild Coast Tented Lodge

Between jungle and beach

A luxury tented escape

Wild Coast Tented Lodge is located adjacent to the world famous Yala National Park, renowned for its dense leopard population. The luxury tented camp sits where the jungle meets a rugged, empty beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The use of arched fabric structures allows each of the 28 tents to take on the shape and colour of the rocks and boulders that lay scattered nearby, whilst a clever layout in the shape of a leopard’s paw print alludes to the area’s most famous resident.

The main buildings are made of bamboo and blend in with the distinctive rock formations of Yala. The uniquely shaped tents, called cocoons and urchins offer state-of-the art amenities including air-conditioning. The open-air bamboo-clad Ten Tuskers bar and dining pavilion wrap around the resort’s enormous free-form swimming pool. Guests can enjoy creative daily-changing menus of authentic Sri Lankan cuisine in the restaurant, as well as sundowner cocktails and picnics al fresco on the sand dunes, watching dusk settle over the Indian Ocean.
