The hidden jewels of Sri Lanka
|Ambassador House, Galle|
Petite and chic, the true gem of Sri Lanka is its rising wave of beautiful boutique hotels and villas peppered throughout its wild, lush interior and sublime coastal strips. The tiny island has performed a staggering comeback - just three years after its 26-year civil war ended in 2009, more than a million tourists came to soak up its sun, sip its tea and savour its culture.
Sri Lanka and Bali are emerging rivals, sharing similar climates, a guaranteed warm welcome and an innate sense of style and design.
