Your search for the perfect lakeside, luxurious, eco-friendly resort might be over. Tri Lanka, located on the beach of Lake Koggala in Sri Lanka, is ideal for both vacationers who prefer lounging and evening yoga and more adventuresome travelers. It is also making waves as a mostly sustainable resort, with consideration for the environment taken all the way from construction to daily operations.
10 rooms are built into the sweeping Golden Ratio-shaped design, eight of which are suites and three of which include their own private pools. The center of the swirling resort contains a water tower; other highlights include a cantilevering pool with multiple decks and terraces, a treetop yoga studio, and access to the operation’s Beach Club & Restaurant. Spa treatments, communal and private dining, a library, and an entertainment center can also be enjoyed by visitors.
Tri Lanka features green roofs and living walls throughout the resort, while solar power generates heat for the water supply. The wood used in construction is mostly recycled and all materials were sourced locally, boosting trust in the resort’s simple and sustainable mission. The entire design was “Guided by nature, evolved by aesthetic passion, and fortified by an all-encompassing sustainable philosophy.” What more could one want from a vacation at a luxury resort?
