Wild Coast Tented Lodge Luxury lodge in Yala National Park

UNESCO design award winner Wild Coast Tented is a spectacular luxury tented camp stunningly located where the jungle meets a pristine beach, overlooking the Indian Ocean. The unique design blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape.


Wild Coast’s soaring, curved, organic structures are an eye-widening architectural triumph. The bamboo-clad, open-air restaurant and bar are positioned beside a freeform turquoise infinity pool, complementing the Yala bushland-and-beach setting. Tucked away in the wilderness, dazzling Cocoon tented bedrooms and a Sanctuary Spa dot the landscape like scattered seed pods.


Wild Coast is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux association of unique hotels and restaurants owned and operated by independent entrepreneurs – most often families – who are passionate about their craft and deeply committed to forging warm, lasting relationships with their guests.

An anchored airship in the wild

A feat of invention and ingenuity, our Cocoon suites bring to mind an anchored airship. 28 Cocoons are scattered in our beachfront jungle wilderness like giant seed pods. Each Cocoon has a wooden patio, some with plunge pools, positioned to soak up views of the closest watering hole. Inside, an air-conditioned mini kingdom awaits, styled with vintage-explorer charm: all copper accents, rich-red leather camp-style furniture, and blissful four-poster, king-sized beds. Sisal and Persian-style rugs add texture and colour; the majestic copper bath with its leopard-paw claw feet is a firm reminder that you’re in the jungle.

Dining

Experiencing local cuisine is an integral part of visiting Wild Coast Tented Lodge.

We’d like to think of each plate, every dish, the ingredients used as an expression, an indication of its connection to nature, our island home and the progressive creativity of our chefs.

Where the jungle meets the Indian Ocean Yala

Teeming with incredible biodiversity, the Yala National Park offers exceptional wildlife experiences. Besides being home to the largest population of leopards in Sri Lanka, Yala is also home to elephants, sloth bears, mugger crocodiles and a kaleidoscopic array of birdlife. Our rangers are passionate, educated and highly skilled, with an eye for detail. Going on a safari or nature walk is not only about the facts, as they also offer a deep respect for the wild. Watch them interpret signs of wildlife to deliver a fascinating narrative, making each of our outdoor drives and walks a distinct experience.

Our values and vision are inspired by our Founders, the Fernando family, who believe that business is a matter of human service. Our portfolio of resorts are located in scenic and environmentally sensitive areas, enabling us to drive our sustainability agenda across Climate Action, Land & Sea and People & Culture.

Wild Coast Tented Lodge sits amidst the wilderness that is contiguous with the Yala National Park. While keystone species such as leopards, elephants and sloth bears visit the lodge, the Palatupana coastline which highlights our island’s coastal dune landscape is visited annually by nesting sea turtles. Curious in nature and mindful of their impact on the environment and wildlife, our expert rangers contribute to the conservation initiatives of our Lodge.

Explore our Island of Treasures

Known as Ceylon until 1972, Sri Lanka means Resplendent Island. Just off the southern tip of India, the island is about the size of Ireland and home to 20 million people. The small island packs in a continent’s worth of attractions with 8 UNESCO world heritage sites, mountainous tea country, spectacular wildlife, epic food, and breathtaking coastlines combine to form a tapestry, filled with intriguing characters that bring the story of today’s Sri Lanka to life. The country has a rich cultural heritage with its strategic location along the ancient silk route. Ancient Greeks called it Taprobane, Persians and Arabs referred to it as Serendib, the origin of the word “serendipity”.
