    Named among one of the top 25 resorts in Asia in 2021, Wild Coast Tented Lodge in Yala offers the best of the jungle and the beach with a large dose of luxury. Just picture it: luxury tented suites, sparkling plunge pools and four-poster beds. As an all-inclusive option, there’s no need to lift a finger during your stay, with sightseeing made easy at the Yala National Park, only four kilometres away.  

  • Contemporary

    Enjoy the beach on your doorstep at Kumu Beach in Balapitiya. This modern hotel offers 10 secluded suites and personalised service without breaking the bank. There’s also a fabulous on-site spa, restaurant and infinity swimming pool. Sea views come standard! 

  • Eco-friendly

    Sigiriya King’s Resort has a prime location on the shores of Lake Halmilla in Sigiriya and is set in a nature reserve. Each luxurious unit is elevated on stilts, giving it that whimsical treehouse vibe. Being higher up not only brings you closer to nature and the stars, but also offers views of Sigiriya Rock (read about this fortress further on). 

  • Budget-friendly

    If you’re on a budget and looking to explore Sri Lanka’s West Coast, stay at This Is It Guest House and Restaurant in the beach town of Negombo. Offering comfy rooms and friendly service, it also has a convenient location — everything’s within walking distance, including the Indian Ocean.

Expert tip

Try all the different lentil curries, they're so amazing. Sri Lankan restaurants can be hard to come by in some cities so make the most of all of them - you can even try a cooking class or two! We made an entire curry out of garlic it was insane. Honestly, just eat eat eat.
