Wild Coast Tented Lodge, Sri Lanka
Opened last year, the Wild Coast Tented Lodge by Resplendent Ceylon offers a private cocoon of luxury on the periphery of the Yala National Park, popular for its dense leopard population. The 36 vaulted tents—aptly called Cocoons and Urchins—have been laid out in the shape of a leopard’s paw print along the shores where the jungle meets the Indian Ocean. The remote location ensures you do not miss any of nature’s musings—from the clashing waves to chirping of the birds. During a leisurely stay, go on a guided jeep safari to spot elephants and sloth bears, besides leopards.
The Best View The Cocoon Pool Suite offers raw views of the jungle through its double-height double glazed facades. The four-poster bed, teak flooring, canvas walls, and copper bathtubs touch the right notes.
