A new generation of hotels is offering luxurious and creative accommodations. The 40-room Cape Weligama opened on a 12-acre site overlooking the Indian Ocean. This spring, TRI, a new 10-suite hotel will also offer a boutique option on the banks of Lake Koggala, with a cantilevered pool and treetop yoga studio; in November, the Wild Coast Lodge will make its debut on a beautiful beach in Yala National Park, with 28 luxury tents and an Ayurvedic spa.
