Perched on the fringes of the renowned Wilpattu National Park, the Wilpattu Treehouse Hotel offers a unique window into Sri Lanka’s mesmerizing wildlife. The hotel serves as a gentle reminder that while we might draw boundaries, nature does not, as its rich tapestry of flora and fauna seamlessly blend into the resort’s grounds.
As you approach the Wilpattu Treehouse Hotel, a narrow yet well-maintained road, dotted with tranquil lakes, becomes your introduction to the area’s natural inhabitants. From sunbathing crocodiles and graceful pelicans to the delicate-footed deer, the journey gives a hint of the wildlife experiences awaiting guests.
One of the prime attractions of staying here is the regular visits from elephants and wild boar. And if you find soft footfalls overhead, it might just be wild lemurs leaping across the treehouse roofs. Elevated amidst the trees, these accommodations allow guests to truly immerse themselves in nature’s rhythm, all while enjoying unparalleled views of the surroundings.
The resort boasts four exquisite treehouses, each rising over 14 feet from the ground. Designed with a nod to traditional Sri Lankan craftsmanship, they blend rustic aesthetics with modern comforts, ensuring a cozy stay amidst the wild. Each treehouse features an expansive outdoor terrace, ideal for an uninterrupted wildlife-watching session or simply soaking in the serenity of the surrounding jungle.
Culinary delights await at the resort’s elevated restaurant, serving as a dual venue for both delectable meals and more wildlife encounters, not to mention the captivating sunset views.
Starting at a competitive rate of around €90 per night, with customizable meal plans ranging from Bed and Breakfast to full board, the Wilpattu Treehouse Hotel promises an experience where luxury, nature, and hospitality converge.
