    Our opinion

    The beauty of this lakeside resort is impossible to overstate; natural materials, a secluded location, and inspired design come together to create an unforgettable Sri Lankan experience. We highly recommend TRI to couples looking for a romantic break, or families with older children.

    Hotel description

    TRI, built around an ancient Banyan tree on a promontory in Lake Koggala, treats its guests to a truly unique experience of both the natural world of Sri Lanka and luxury accommodation. Arriving guests are taken over to the hotel by boat, which immediately creates a lasting impression of exclusivity and peaceful seclusion. TRI is Sri Lanka’s first hotel to seamlessly combine contemporary, cutting-edge design (inspired by the Fibonacci sequence), with total sustainability. Living walls, recycled wood, green roofs, solar-heated water, and locally-sourced materials not only help the ten rooms blend in with their lush lakeside position, but also maintain all aspects of the local natural harmony. Guests can experience full immersion into Sri Lankan culture with yoga classes, the Ayurveda spa, and a range of other holistic treatments. Rooms at TRI are split-level, with the bed raised up, which gives a greater sense of space and enhances the spectacular views that can be appreciated from the beds. Glass walls are combined with opaque dividers to create a balance between essential privacy and stunning tropical panoramas. As a result, the view from your room will appear to be entirely yours. A further three rooms are housed inside the unique central Water Tower, which has cinnamon wood walls and is surrounded by a spiral-shaped pool. In addition to the main 21m infinity swimming pool, the infinity pools on the terraces of the larger rooms become surreally sublime due to their lagoon-side, treetop position; and, the high-altitude yoga Shala is suspended above a bamboo grove, and enhances the feeling of natural wellbeing. Here, guests can enjoy classes taught by one of TRI's owners, a professional yoga teacher. Healthy, delicious food is served in the restaurant, overlooking the treetops below and the banks of the lake. The immersive experience continues in the lake kayaking facilities, temple visit excursions, and private beach club on Kabalana Beach. Those staying for longer may want to embark on a whale-watching trip. Though only opened in December 2015, TRI has quickly become an essential port-of-call when touring Sri Lanka.


    Less than half an hour from Galle Fort, on the banks of Lake Koggala.
