Often overlooked in favor of the beach, Sri Lanka’s lush interior offers some of the South Asian country’s most breathtaking scenery. Promising to lure luxury travelers inland, Tri is a 6-acre resort that opened in December on the shores of Koggala Lake, roughly 5 miles from the southern coast. Eleven suites and villas with glass walls and local jak-wood terraces are nestled like modern aeries among the cashew trees, where blue-tailed bee-eaters and dozens of other bird and butterfly species parade by in a fluttering rainbow. A traditional white-sailed dhoni ferries guests to the lake’s eight isles. Respite also awaits at the 70-foot-long pool cantilevered over the lake.  

WHAT: Sri Lanka’s first five-star jungle resort features 11 lakeside accommodations, three with private swimming pools. WHERE: Spread over 6 acres on the island’s largest natural lake, about 15 miles from the city of Galle. WHY: Sri Lanka’s verdant interior is the next frontier for this emerging hot spot.
