Anantara opens the door to authentic luxury in Srilanka
In a uniquely secluded beachfront location along Sri Lanka’s southern coast, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort welcomed
its first guests in December 2015. The allure of the resort is matched by convenient travel; Cinnamon Air offers a daily 40-minute sea-plane flight from Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport to Dickwella, a ten minute drive from the resort. Other transport options include chartering a private flight, helicopter transfers or making use of the resort’s luxury Hybrid SUV transfer service, a three and a half hour drive. The guests are ensconced in a luxury resort of enchanting Sri Lankan design, set amidst a 21-acre coconut plantation that opens onto a golden sweep of beach and the warm clear waters of the Indian Ocean. 152 guest rooms and villas of indigenous luxury boast hand-woven custom-made Sri Lankan furnishings and contemporary amenities, al fresco spaces to relax with stunning ocean views, interconnecting options for families and friends, and accommodation for differently abled guests.
Six restaurant, bar and lounge venues showcase vibrant island cuisine and delightful Colonial customs. Rooted in Ayurveda,
the Anantara Spa stimulates holistic wellbeing. This ancient healing practice enhances the connection between mind, body and spirit. The Spa features eight treatment suites, a reflexology centre and a beauty and hair salon.The resort is an ideal base from which to explore Sri Lanka’s southern attractions including Wewurukannala Vihara temple, the amazing rock temples of Mulkirigala and Yala National Park. The resort is also close to Rekawa, a turtle conservation project.
