Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Hidden on a rocky outcrop along a secluded stretch of Sri Lanka's southernmost coastline, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort is set amidst a 42 acre coconut plantation and golden crescent beach, with glorious Indian Ocean views. Escape to this naturally exclusive hideaway for exotic beach life in a tranquil world of your own, or live out your explorer dreams, with easy access to iconic cultural sites and spectacular national parks, as well as the thrill of turtle and whale watching trips. Practice holistic exercises on the shore and explore the local area by bicycle or tuk-tuk. Relax in paradise at our tropical pool, a refreshing cocktail in hand. Little ones can play happily at the children's and teens' club, leaving you free to indulge in sensual spa pampering and specialist treatments at the Ayurvedic and reflexology centres. Savour the charms and flavours of island life, partaking in the colonial tradition of high tea and creating authentic Sri Lankan cuisine in a master chef cooking class. For refined international tastes, delight in gourmet Italian dining on an ocean facing cliff top, Sri Lankan inspired teppanyaki beside the beach, private wine cellar degustation dinners and tailored Dining by Design occasions. Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort has been recognised in Condé Nast Traveler US’s prestigious 2017 Hot List as one of the best new hotels in the world, as well as one of the hottest new openings in Sri Lanka. This is the fourth significant international award the resort has won since opening. The property has established itself as one of the leading resorts on the island to travellers both from abroad and locally. Due to this strong support, Anantara Tangalle has achieved significant international and local recognition, including in Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards in 2016, being named on DestinAsian magazine’s 2016 Luxe List and being awarded by Wine Spectator in 2016 for its Il Mare restaurant.

You would be hard pushed to find a better hotel, in this area...We have nothing negative to say about this place it ticked all our boxes ..maybe the only thing is there is nothing to walk to close by, except along the beach (there is a smaller public beach next door with about 3

Ok, its a three and a half hour road transfer from Columbo, but well worth it. My wife and I and our friends, another couple, stayed at this resort for 14 nights, which is unusual as we later discovered, most people tour and then finish on the beach. Not one for beach holidays

Greeted like family, a butler showed us to our room and organised our restaurant bookings etc. My husband had a birthday there and was thoroughly spoilt by the staff. Beautifully luxurious room directly opposite the beach where we spent every day. An Immaculately clean resort

I’m sorry I don’t have an answer. I booked a non refundable rate if I recall since I was sure I was not going to cancel but I know they have different rates with different refund policies explained on their site and if I recall the explanations are clear!

I did not take half board. Usually breakfast is included and their breakfast is fabulous. The answer is very personal. I don’t go on vacation to gain 10 pounds and I’m not crazy about buffets so I prefer to pay for what I eat and for my wife and me it’s definitely less expensive that way. However if you love to eat a lot and love desserts than go for it.

Not entirely sure. We had a Deluxe Ocean view and I think there are 4 in each block. They occupy the end rooms. I think all rooms have Ocean View. I would definitely go for the upper two floors as you can see the ocean better. Also opt for block 4 or 5. Hope this helps

Sorry forgot cost. For 4 in a deluxe mini bus, then change to deluxe jeep (just for 4 with a guide) at park it cost $400. There are private "touts" on the beach who would offer same for much less but cant guarantee guide (which we believed invaluable) or quality of transport/jeep.

Hello, what’s the most efficient and affordable way to reach the hotel from Colombo airport?
In reality it’s by road. There is a small plane service to the local airstrip which is very near to the hotel but I don’t know how often or how much this is.available .

"Ocean villas are the best !"
"All rooms have sea views"
"We had a ground floor beach access room. Gave great access to pool and beach!"
