HERO Sri Lanka Wild Coast Tented Lodge


On Sri Lanka’s elemental and beautiful south coast, Wild Coast Tented Lodge is a luxurious hybrid of safari camp and five-star resort. The tented suites straddle sci-fi and the classical, within their experimental architecture filled with old-world touches like the copper bathtub and leather chairs.

The safari vibe is connected to the resort’s proximity to the wetlands and bush of Yala National Park—one of the country’s best places for seeing leopards, elephants, hawk-eagles, and more. Ensuring that you’re on safari even when you’re actually just relaxing on your private veranda with coconut ice cream, the resort has stationed a few watering holes around the property to bring the wildlife to you.


The architecture of this hotel is incredible, from its cocoon-like suites to its soaring bamboo domes arching over the cocktails beings garnished at the fantastic bar and restaurant. Within your suite, you’ll find a futuristic colonial aesthetic with sumptuous four-posters and cool teak flooring. The copper bathtubs are deep enough for a small elephant and well-positioned near large arching windows to continue your appreciation of the ‘wild coast’.
