Resplendent Ceylon announces its newest luxury retreat in Sri Lanka- Wild Coast Tented Lodge

Resplendent Ceylon, the benchmark for boutique, small luxury resorts in Sri Lanka has announced its newest resort offering- the Wild Coast Tented Lodge. Ideally located at the edge of Yala National Park in the South-Eastern part of the country, renowned for its dense leopard population, this spectacular luxury tented lodge finds its place where the glorious jungle meets a pristine beach overlooking the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Set to open in mid-October 2017, Wild Coast Tented Lodge will also be a member of Relais & Chateaux, a prestigious association of some of the finest hotels and restaurants around the world. The resort design has been conceptualised by Nomadic Resorts- a consortium of Dutch, English and Sri Lankan designers, wherein it blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape built with meticulously handpicked natural materials.


Wild Coast Tented Lodge will consist of 36 vaulted tents-“Cocoons” and “Urchins” providing the comfort of a luxury resort with the feel of a safari-style wilderness experience. The use of arched fabric and bamboo allows each tent to take on the shape and colour of the rocks scattered nearby, and these tents have been laid out in the shape of a leopard’s paw print. The Cocoons measuring a generous 55 sq. mt. will each be air-conditioned and consist of elegantly furnished interiors, fusing colonial expedition chic with contemporary design innovations, such as- teak floors, freestanding handmade copper bathtubs and four-poster beds. There will be 4 secluded beach-facing Cocoons that offer private plunge pools, whilst 16 more Cocoons are dotted around five watering holes designed to attract a variety of fauna including birdlife and amphibians, where guests will be able to enjoy spectacular views from the outdoor decks. An additional 8 family Cocoons will house an adjoining twin-bedded 20 sq. mt. Urchin tents, ideal for children and young adults alike.


The resort would also consist of world-class dining experiences, an open-air bamboo-clad “Ten Tuskers” bar and “Dining Pavilion” also wrap around the resort’s enormous free-form swimming pool. Guests will be able to enjoy creative daily changing menus of authentic Sri Lankan cuisine in the restaurant, as well as sun downer cocktails and picnics al fresco on the sand dunes. The ‘Sanctuary Spa’ will offer a range of natural treatments developed in-house with native Sri Lankan ingredients- Ceylon Tea and Ceylon Cinnamon. The library will double up as an educational centre where guests can learn about the surrounding wildlife in the park and watch documentaries, further explained by the lodge’s expert guides and naturalists.


Wild Coast Tented Lodge promises to offer exceptional wilderness experiences, allowing guests to immerse themselves in some of the richest biodiversity in Sri Lanka. Vehicles will whisk guests to the quietest corners of Yala National Park, whilst expert guides will talk guests through the incredible diversity of flora and fauna, including elephants, sloth bears and leopards. A variety of lectures and workshops will offer a deep insight into the fascinating natural surroundings.
