With its living walls and roofs, solar panels, and recycled materials, the new Tri is one of Sri Lanka’s first sustainable hotels. The property, which is due to open in mid-December, is made up of a main house and 11 suites, set around Lake Koggala on the island’s south coast. The hotel is built around a looming central water tower, from which guests can take in a 360-degree view. The multi-tiered main house is open-plan, with large sunbathing terraces and a pool on the upper level, and indoor and outdoor dining areas on the lower level, all with lake views. The 11 suites feature contemporary interiors, while the wooden doors, flooring, and cladding are all crafted from recycled local materials.
The fabrics at Sri Lanka’s first truly contemporary, sustainable luxury design hotel, Tri Lanka on Koggala Lake, were designed and manufactured by Tallentire House.
