Passikudah, Sri Lanka
Get married at Uga Bay on Sri Lanka's eastern coast, and you can ride an elephant to the altar, before dancing to the beat of local drummers. Exotic luxury awaits at this beachside resort, located less than an hour from Batticaloa Airport. With just 46 guestrooms, the hotel encircles an intimate compound, which includes a luxurious pool, restaurant and spa. Guests hankering to explore can visit nearby ancient sites --such as UNESCO-listed Polannaruwa, known for its giant Buddhas.
