ASIA. TANGALLE, SRI LANKA.
Not even a decade has passed since Sri Lanka put its name in the global hat of travel destinations, which means this teardrop island is still relatively – blissfully – untouristed. In fact, at Amanwella on Sri Lanka’s southern coast, guests almost never have to see another person, since the beach is 800 metres long and all 30 contemporary suites come with a private plunge pool and walled courtyard. Risking social contact is worth it, though, to lay by the stunning infinity pool with ocean views, or dine on local seafood at The Restaurant.
