Wild Coast Tented Lodge

Wild Coast Tented Lodge, adjacent to the Yala National Park, is renowned for its dense leopard population. This spectacular luxury tented camp is situated in a stunning location where the jungle meets a pristine beach, overlooking the blue waters of the Indian Ocean.

Wild Coast Tented Lodge’s unique design sees the man-made structures blending seamlessly into the surrounding landscape thanks to the use of carefully selected natural materials. The use of arched fabric structures allows each of the twenty eight cocoon 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.

While our main buildings, made of bamboo, blend in with the distinctive rock formations of Yala, our uniquely shaped tents, called Cocoons & Urchins, truly represent a luxury five star resort room under canvas, offering all amenities including air-conditioning. The 55 square metre king bedded Cocoon Suites boast soaring vaulted ceilings, offering jungle views from the double-height double glazed facades. The interiors fuse colonial expedition chic with contemporary design innovations, from freestanding handmade copper bathtubs to sumptuous four-poster beds. Teak floors and canvas walls complement dark leather touches and repurposed metallic hardware for an eclectic and design-led aesthetic. The Cocoons are dotted around watering holes attracting wildlife, which can be viewed from outdoor decks.

Food & Drink

At Wild Coast Tented Lodge you’ll be treated to an array of gourmet safari cuisine with a Sri Lankan flair, served in our bamboo Dining Pavilion open to the ocean breezes. Guests can also experience a more intimate setting in our natural beach garden under a star-studded Sri Lankan night sky. Breakfast features a wide array of traditional Sri Lankan & international breakfast favourites. Lunch is a la carte with perennial favourites with a wild coast twist, comfort food, healthy options & more. Post evening game drive cocktails and snacks take place on our rugged beach. Dinner is a wondrous affair inspired by nature and the freshness of local produce.


The Sanctuary Spa at Wild Coast Tented Lodge is a tropical haven for the spa enthusiast, offering a double and two single treatment rooms. Situated in one of the most vibrant and spectacular settings in Sri Lanka, bordering pristine ocean and dense bush, this unique setting contributes to a sense of wellbeing. Key to our wellness experience are two native Sri Lankan ingredients, Ceylon Tea and Ceylon Cinnamon, both of which we use liberally in our oils, scrubs and poultices.
