Close to the old fort town of Tangalle, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort is set on a rocky cliffside overlooking the Indian Ocean. A secluded area sprinkled with palm trees and surrounded by a 21-acre coconut plantation, it’s a truly unique place to stay. The resort is committed to sustainability, with an organic rice paddy in the grounds, a host of nature walks and tours, and a collaboration with the International Union of Conservation of Nature to protect marine turtles. It’s the ideal base to explore Sri Lanka’s rainforests, pilgrimage sites and fishing ports too.
You’ll never be bored during your stay at Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort. If watersports are your thing, join the Tropicsurf programme and ride the lagoon’s waves. There’s also a fitness centre and tennis and badminton courts for working up a sweat. Staff can organise excursions to nearby Rekawa Beach where you can join local turtle-watching volunteers as they oversee and protect hawksbill and leatherback turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs.
A guided Peace Haven nature walk is just the thing to ease you into your stay. Explore the grounds with one of the resort’s Nature Gurus, who can point out endangered turtles and wandering peacocks. Take a stroll with one of the chefs to self-harvest seasonal produce and learn more about indigenous farming practices. Or, for true rejuvenation, head to Anantara Spa for a treatment. Take your pick from hot stone massages, couples’ romantic retreats, herbal baths and meditation classes.
Take a trip around the world with the international menus at Journeys. Freshly caught seafood and Sri Lankan curries are the specialities, but bold cuisines and spicy flavours are always on hand.
Chef Valentino marries world-class Italian cuisine with perfect accompanying wines. Linger over a candlelit dinner of favourites like lasagne and specially prepared catch of the day.
A beachside setting is the perfect spot for the culinary theatre provided by the chefs at Verala. Japanese cuisine with Sri Lankan influences and local produce emphasise the resort’s farm-to-table approach to dining.
Afternoon tea and local lagers are just two of the treats available at Lobby Lounge. Set in a laidback loft space, this place has over a dozen Sri Lankan teas and a host of shisha flavours.
Familiar dishes like pizza and burgers are on the menu at the Poolside Bar. You can dine on the deck or stay where you are lounging by the pool. There’s an outdoor movie night every Wednesday, too.
Take a trip to the wine cellar and let one of the resort’s Wine Gurus guide you through the world of wine. The chef is also on hand with tapas creations and tips on wine pairing and home cooking.
The rooms at Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort are light and airy, and you’ll have views of either the garden and beach or the Indian Ocean. Crisp, bright decor with Sri Lankan touches complement the greens and blues of the resort’s natural landscape. Villas are also available for larger groups.
