Thirappane, Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s Ulagalla Resort is home to 20 glass-walled, eco-friendly chalets with private plunge pools, and it’s all built around a 150-year-old mansion that was once home to the local nobility. Spend days visiting nearby sites, like the Sri Maha Bodhi tree, or seeing the elephants in Minneriya National Park. You can also sample Ayurvedic spa treatments at the in-house spa. Don’t miss a private dinner set in the kamatha, the threshing ground where custom-designed candlelit meals feature Sri Lankan specialties made with ingredients from the resort’s own organic gardens and fields.
