Rather than quick profit, its British owner Rob Drummond and his wife Laura were seeking to create a space of calmness and relaxation – without damaging the beautiful jungle surroundings they built Tri Lanka in. No trees were hurt during the construction of the hotel – a positive and inspiring refuge of today’s hectic world has been born.
Offering eight lake-front villa suites and three water tower rooms, a stay at wellness-oriented Tri Lanka soothes body, mind and soul allowing you to focus on whatever is most important to you. Leave everything behind and dive into a stay combining delicious dining with digital detox, yoga and Ayurvedic treatments.
DESIGN & PHILOSOPHY of Tri
“Guided by nature, evolved by aesthetic passion, and fortified by an all-encompassing sustainable philosophy.”
Imagine Tri lanka being a secluded luxury tree house with cinnamon wood claddings – without being built in a tree. Using solely sustainable and local materials, offering tours to neighbouring Cinnamon Island to witness the production of this tantalising spice via a traditional fishing boat and even employing a Sri Lankan carbon-consulting company to conduct a biodiversity report is all part of Tri Lanka’s philosophy which aims to perfectly integrate wellness, nature and state-of-the-art hospitality.
The eight spacious villa suites of Tri Lanka are located along the edge of the water overlooking magically calming Lake Koggala with its endless wild flora and fauna, each offering sunrise or sunset views and wild garden terraces or a plunge pool (think late night skinny dipping in the moon light!).
If you are after something more cozy, book yourself into one of Tri’s three water tower rooms with a cabin feel and spectacular lake views – don’t forget to bring along your binoculars! Whichever hideaway you may choose – a calming cinnamon scent awaits you in every room at Tri Lanka.
You cannot walk past Tri Lanka’s stunning infinity pool with a soothing view over Lake Koggala. You may have come across this iconic shot on the accounts of travel blogger elite such as @tuulavintage or @ohhcouture, now it’s your time to snap the most beautiful pool in Sri Lanka!
