Phenomenal Experience!

Bangkok, Thailand

From the moment we arrived, we knew this would be wonderful. Our warm guide Jeewantha (who was our host, extraordinare, throughout) took us to our lovely tent house fronting the beach, which was spectacular. Design elements of old Raj era tents combined with steampunk combined with just cool modern touches - we loved the seclusion and every corner of our room. The salt water pool just outside our door was enchanting - surrounded by curious monkeys and the sound of crashing waves. As we enjoyed a drink that evening, tiny lights came out under the water, creating our own fantastic galaxy to match the beautiful stars above. The food and care were also tip top. Special thanks to Keith, our ranger with all the answers, stories and true love for the creatures of Yala (and a wonderful sense of humor), and to our room attendants Damith and Sampath, who created a truly magical scene to return to before bed. The ladies in the spa, who transported us for a few hours, also deserve our appreciation. This was a memorable dream for us.

Honeymooning at Wild Coast Tented Lodge

New York City, New York

wow wow wow - this place will blow your mind. The luxury cocoon tents leave no detail unnoticed. They are impeccably beautiful, comfortable, have everything you need, you may never want to leave, but you should! Because the food here is OUTSTANDING, large variety (also lot of options for vegetarians, vegans, GF, etc), and if you're lucky, you'll see some monkeys gather right y the pool! I've never seen so many delicious mocktails and specialty sodas on one menu! Make sure to go on your daily game drive - we saw everything besides the sloth bear which is a not as common to see, but lucky to see 2 leopards! Grace and Keith were amazing guides and beyond knowledgable! Sundowners by the beach after our game drives each day was a treat. We spent 2 nights here which seemed like the perfect amount for 2 game drives and some delicious meals and pool time. Such a unique and special place!
