Sri Lanka seems on a nonstop trajectory to becoming South Asia’s most compelling destination. One of the main players is Teardrop Hotels, whose charmingly eclectic Fort Bazaar (teardrop-hotels.com; from $176) in Galle Fort won hearts and industry kudos from Santa Monica to South Kensington when it opened last winter.

Teardrop’s expansion continues with Camellia Hills (from $280), a five-suite new-build bungalow overlooking Castlereagh Reservoir, near Hatton. Guests can immerse themselves in the island’s tea‑growing culture; the accommodations themselves are immersed in lush tea fields overlooked by the extensive gardens and swimming pool.
