Situated in the nature-rich haven of Sri-Lanka, the Kumbuk River Resort offers enchanting hospitality inside a giant elephant made out of straw. The resort itself can be found at the bank of a river that separates Yala National Park from the modern world. This unique location allows guests to stare out into an exotic green environment in a hotel made mostly of wood and bamboo. The Kumbuk River Resort also places a focus on privacy as it caters to just 10 patrons at once.
Guests at the resort are invited to stay in luxury tree houses, vintage lorries and boats, all of which provide incredibly scenic views. However, those looking for something more creative can stay inside a giant elephant-shaped structure made of straw. This offering also boasts an in-house eatery that provides locally cooked meals to guests.
