Billed as "Sri Lanka's first truly contemporary, sustainable luxury design hotel," Tri Lanka features ten eco-conscious suites nestled on a dazzlingly lush green island overlooking Koggala, Sri Lanka's largest natural lake.
Owned by the British photographer Rob Drummond and his yoga instructor wife Lara Baumann, the exclusive six-acre property features a cantilevered Infinity pool and suites crafted out of local jak wood and granite that have green roofs, solar hot water, private gardens, terraces and plunge pools, reports the London Telegraph.
Make like Colonel Kurtz and hunker down in the glorious greenery of this South Asian oasis, snack on the hotel's locally-sourced riffs on spicy Sri Lankan specialities, book a whale-watching trip (killer whales, blue whales and dolphins are all nearby) or just detox and decompress at Baumann's tree-top yoga studio.
Whatever you end up doing, the view is going to be amazing. Besides, rates start as low as $200 a night.
