Eco-friendly luxury at Tri HotelGalle, Sri Lanka

First came the surroundings, then the hotel – although they make such a perfect match it’s hard to imagine one without the other. Set on Koggala Lake about 20 kilometres from Galle, Tri boasts 11 suites created to complement the natural world around them. Eco-friendly design elements go beyond solar power and local material – here, you’ll also find living walls, green roofs and edible gardens abundant with local fruit, herbs and spices, including cinnamon.

Settle down by the cantilevered pool or stretch out in the treetop yoga shala. For something more active, kayak on the lake, go temple hopping or visit the hotel’s private beach just a short drive away. At night tuck into locally sourced seafood and produce and enjoy a sense of living closer to nature.
