I am Wild Coast Tented Lodge. I live in a land where the jungle meets the vast Ocean, where your next door neighbors are leopards, elephants, and sloth bears, chital deer, green bee-eaters and the occasional golden jackal. I am the epitome of safari — dark wooden chairs, leather trunk and a free standing copper tub, all housed within a crisp white canvas casing of a cocoon. My open-air bamboo restaurant was designed to resemble the boulders scattered throughout the Sri Lanka’s southern coast.  It wraps gracefully around the glorious infinity pool and offers undisturbed views of a remote stretch of the indian ocean. I am wild, I am free. I am Jungle Luxury.



In the mood for adventure? The wilderness experiences offered at Wild Coast Tented Lodge are designed to delight your body, mind and soul. Jump into an open safari jeep either in the morning or afternoon and explore your choice of national parks —Yala or Udawalawe. Yala is Sri Lanka’s most famous Nationla Park with the high chance to see jungle cats, crocodiles and peacocks. Udawalawe is a lot smaller. Though it has a similar variety of animals present, Elephants are the most common sighting of the larger mammals. With around 250 residents, you are bound to stumble upon a few parades.

Want a taste of history? Take a mini safari through Yala to Sithulpawwa Rajamaha Viharaya. Sithulpawwa comes from the ancient term Cittal Pabbata, which can be translated to the rock of the tranquil mind. When you roll up on this sight you will see why, right on top of a massive boulder sits the white temple of Sithulpawwa. And who knows you may meet an elephant along the way!



Since Wild Coast Tented Lodge is so close to the Yala National Park there are a lot of unexpected visitors passing through the camp or drinking from the waterholes around the property. From a variety of bird species and wild boar to small parades of elephants.

There are 6 clusters of cocoons throughout the grounds. Each of these groups are named after the scientific genus of different animals that frequent Yala. Take a look to see who’s territory you will be staying in for the night.

The resort was designed by the talented Nomadic Resorts. The main buildings are made entirely out of bamboo imported from Thailand and covered with thatched wooden roofs to blend in with the distinct rock formations of Yala.


Suites start at around $354 USD. Included is a delicious breakfast amid the lavish bamboo dining pavilion.
