Beautiful yet unassuming miracles take place everyday. The sun rises, the tides move in and out, and the world cooperates in perfect harmony. Nowhere is this more evident than the little island aptly nicknamed Small Miracle. See for yourself and share it with a loved one when you Escape for three nights to the River House in Sri Lanka for $399 (regularly $830).

Fly into the bustling Metropolis of Columbo (flights not included) and make your way to a seven-acre haven bordering the Madhu River in Balapitiya, 112 km from the International airport. This private garden resort is the perfect place to take in the beauty of the lush land and your private villa with AC, a flat screen TV and DVD player, and free Wi-Fi ensure you will be entertained and cozy.

You will enjoy a scenic boat ride on the river, where a trained Captain will lead you to explore dozens of inlets, forested with mangroves. It's easy to appreciate the timeless and natural rhythms of life when you float past 200-year-old temples and locals cultivating cinnamon. Don't forget your binoculars as 46 species of bird reside in the area, including 14 aquatic varieties. Spot huge water lilies and colorful butterflies in this sanctuary of life. Be sure to catch the stilt fishermen, the only place in the world where this traditional fishing technique is still used.
Your stay at River House includes breakfasts and one dinner, which will surely be a variety of delicious and exotic dishes, using local produce and spices that will really kick your vacay up a notch. The River House is the first Sri Lankan property to be included in Condé Nast Traveller's annual Hot List.

There is so much to see on this tiny Island teeming with promise and life, start with a three-day Escape and take in the many miracles happening right before your eyes all the time, but somehow are just a wee bit easier to spot in Sri Lanka.

  • "From taking long boat rides to just relaxing in your private plunge pool with a book in one hand and your cocktail in the other, this place does it in style."
