Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort


Sri Lankan-inspired design, Anantara’s renowned experience-focused luxury and a breathtaking setting await at this award-winning resort.

The Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort brings Anantara’s chic design, authentic experiences and Thai-inspired hospitality to the shores of Sri Lanka. The resort is scattered throughout 21 acres of tropical gardens and is fronted by a secluded beach and beautiful rocky outcrop. Whether you are looking for cultural or nature excursions or the chance to explore the local region at leisure you'll be well catered for here. And for those days you want to get away from it all the tranquil Anantara Spa offers both Ayurvedic and holistic treatments, and there are many out of the way spots where you can relax. You can even walk to a nearby small beach where there are simple beach restaruants.

Dining here is a pleasure with a selection of options on offer throughout the day. The main venue is Journeys, which as the name suggest allows you to enjoy a variety of flavours from around the world. For something a little more unique there is the oceanfront restaurant Verela, a teppanyaki restaurant with a local flavour. Another favourite dinner setting is the edge of the rocky outcrop, where you will find the award-winning Italian speciality restaurant Il Mare. The resort also offers a farm-to-table dining experience which includes a walk along the organic paddy field and farm.

The ambience of the accommodation here reflects the rest of the resort – indigenous Sri Lankan design and locally sourced furnishings and artworks are used throughout the spacious rooms and villas. Each Premier and Deluxe Room features a terrace or balcony which overlooks the gardens, or for a supplement the beach and ocean. For true indulgence there are a selection of highly recommended villas, each of which has a private terrace with a plunge pool; you can choose between garden or ocean views or a beachside setting.
