Known for idyllic beaches and tranquil tea plantations, Sri Lanka is definitely on our 2016 Hotlist. And now with the opening of a stunning new hotel, we know where we’re going for our 2016 winter sun.
Perched on an island hill overlooking Sri Lanka’s largest natural lake, Koggala, Tri has eleven spacious suites surrounded by lush greenery, with stunning views and beautiful interiors.
Three elevated suites are housed within the water tower, while the remaining eight villas terrace down a spiral path, offering either sunrise or sunset views, private gardens and terraces or plunge pools.
Interiors combine the warmth of local Jak wood with cooling natural granite, while furnishings fuse natural materials with softly coloured, locally made textiles.
The open-plan Main House offers a communal space for dining and relaxation underneath its cantilevered roof, with wide sunbathing terraces, a 21-metre swimming pool over the lake, and indoor and outdoor dining areas.
Enjoy early morning yoga, natural health practitioners, therapists, Ayurvedic specialists and personal trainers are on hand to make sure that look and feel fantastic.
Tri has its own edible gardens and sources food from nearby local farmers and producers. Guests are treated to a daily changing menu of fresh, light ingredients and twists on Sri Lankan classics.
The hotel’s location means that it can be both a tranquil hideaway and a base for exploration. Guests can reach the culture and history of Galle Fort in just 25 minutes, while Sri Lanka’s best beaches are only 15 minutes away and ideal for whale watching, water sports, surfing and swimming.
Tri offers nightly rates from $250 to $600 per room on a half-board double-occupancy basis including taxes.
