1/4  Tangalle, Sri Lanka

Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort couldn’t be more aptly named. Sitting on the unspoiled south coast of Sri Lanka, surrounded by the lush grounds of a one-time coconut plantation, and overlooking the Indian Ocean, it’s the very essence of escapism.

Don’t worry, tranquil doesn’t translate as dull. Between the resort’s innovative clubs, masses of water sports and beachy fun, kids won’t have time for boredom. For little artists, experience traditional craft classes with local artisans, or adventurers can borrow bikes and go exploring.

Ritipanna fishermen still work the waters around local towns and villages here. Or, to really get on the wild side, this area’s also world famous for migrating whales and nesting turtles, at the right time of year.
