Why go? Located right on the beach, Sri Lanka’s first tented hotel, Dolphin Beach, is even more remarkable for being so close to a coral reef marine sanctuary with over 250 species of fish, dozens of birds, dolphins and whales, which are best sighted on a morning sea safari. Wake up to the calm sea on your doorstep and just a couple of hours away lies Wilpattu National Park where you can spot elephants and leopards too.
Price: Rates start from £68 for a family tent.
