Anantara Peace Haven is a large resort in a secluded oceanfront location near Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka. Perched on a clifftop surrounded by coconut palms, with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, this upmarket property boasts 152 contemporary rooms and villas, 4 restaurants, a swimming pool, gym, tennis courts, spa, and gift shop, all overlooking a beautiful stretch of golden sand. The resort offers an exclusive experience at the higher end of the budget spectrum.

The expansive grounds house a fabulous 25 metre pool with sun loungers, and an adjoining pool bar serving drinks and snacks. There’s a good choice of dining options. The ‘Il Mare’ restaurant is open for evening meals and offers superb cliff-top views and an Italian menu, specialising in seafood and pasta. The beachside ‘Verele’ is open all day and serves Sri Lankan cuisine in a teppanyaki style. Two further restaurants feature an international menu, and Mediterranean/tapas style meals. Traditional high tea is served each afternoon in the resort lounge, and private dining experiences can be arranged with prior notice.

Numerous activities are available on site. There’s a well-equipped gym, along with tennis and badminton courts. Yoga, tai chi and meditation sessions are held daily on the beach, and private sessions can be arranged. Bicycles are available for exploring the surrounding local villages and pristine coastline. Join in a traditional Sri Lankan cooking class or enjoy a wine tasting session in Anantara’s cellars. Or simply relax in the pool and indulge in a massage or beauty treatment at the spa.

The accommodation comprises 152 stylish rooms and villas. All units feature contemporary decor and have king size or twin beds, satellite TV, minibar, and Wi-Fi. Each ensuite bathroom contains a freestanding bathtub and a separate rainfall shower. Outside is a private veranda or terrace with a table and chairs, and a daybed for enjoying the beautiful views of the garden or the ocean. The spacious one-bed villas are larger and include an indoor lounge, and outside on the terrace is a private plunge pool with loungers. All villas are supplied with bicycles.

The resort ‘goes the extra mile’ to welcome families. There’s a dedicated children and teens club run by trained staff who provide arts, crafts and games activities. The pool has a shallow area for children, and there is a shaded outdoor playground as well. The property offers a number of interconnecting rooms for families, along with several spacious two-bedroom villas.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
