Anantara Kalutara Resort is one of the best experiences we as a couple have ever had. We enjoyed our one-night stay with my fiancé in Anantara, because they give us a very good and very kind attitude and excellent service when we arrive and until we check out in the morning it was so great, especially to Mr. Sachith at Front Office. Thank You All!

Hotel's Favorite
Last weekend was my 2nd visit to this luxury resort in paradise. I stayed at one of the 7 luxury one bed room pool villas in this iconic resort which is nestled between a lagoon & the Indian Ocean. My stay at this resort was a divine & a luxurious experience since the villa was beautifully arranged, cleaned & equipped with apple TV. Loved every minute in the plunge pool with a glass of prosecco 🍾 Moreover, our villa host Sajani was courteous & attentive & did her best to comply with our requests. In addition, the food at the Olu restaurant was exceptional where I enjoyed some cracking dishes. Compliments to the chef! Kudos to the GM Mr. Joao, Mr. Siva, & Mr. Eranda for all the surprises they had in store for us. This was undoubtedly one of the best luxury resort experiences I have had so far in Sri Lanka! Definitely looking forward for another staycation! 🤩

We stayed at a villa in Anantara Kalutara Resort. The villa was great. Spacious and comfortable. Away from all the noise. The staff is friendly, attentive, polite, and professional. Sachith at reception was very helpful. He was available whenever we needed any help at the reception. Made our stay special so thank you. There are two pools. Breakfast is very good. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are cleaned to high standards.

We stayed here as a family of four over Easter. Had originally booked a pool villa but moved to a top floor hotel ocean corner suite as our 9 yr old suffered terribly from the ground floor mosquitos around the pool and lagoon. Hotel could not do enough to hep, very impressed by the front desk team to assist, everyone went out of their way to help. Suite was enormous with stunning views and massive terrace. Food was fabulous everywhere, particular favourite was the Italian poolside restaurant - again, the team could not do enough to help here .. our 5 year old was unwell (nothing to do with Sri Lanka!) but wouldnt eat the whole time away apart from the (admittedly amazing!) bread in the Italian restaurant and so they made sure wherever we were we had this bread . We did a few day trips with tours organised by Ashan Fernando @Aunthenticities Sri Lanka which I would strongly recommend - he was AMAZING AND CAN NOT RECOMMEND HIM AND HIS TEAM HIGHLY ENOUGH ! To summarise we had the best holiday here and adored SL and the Anantara - we were a little apprehensive before going when reading about the current political/economic fragility there but having gone we would not hesitate to recommend - it is the most beautiful country with the most incredible people. Pls go and support . You will not regret it. We cant wait to go back

We are only on our second day here and I feel I have to write this review, the welcome upon arrival from the staff was impressive, every staff member greets you in the most amazing way wishing you a pleasant stay and a life of happiness. The staff here address you by name and it is so personal to us. The style of the rooms are just so authentic, very clean and fresh towels everyday. I've never been to a hotel before where they make you a packed lunch at 5am for your trips, this place is just so surreal. The food is out of this world and plentiful, actually, you get far too much food. I have lots to say about this resort and we will be coming back in the next year.

We've been vacationing all around Sri Lanka but Anantara Kaluthara holds a special space in our hearts. While the experience and activities are a plus, the kindness and humbleness of the staff stands out as the best quality AK has to offer. They also offered us an extended check-out time and we appreciate it as we were traveling with a 10 month baby

We had a couple of issues during our stay however the management and staff did everything they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible. There are certainly supply issues in Sri Lanka at the moment and the lack of petrol doesn’t help the situation. If I had one recommendation it’d be that the staff be more transparent from the outset regarding what’s not in stock when you sit down at dinner. I genuinely think they’re doing the best they can and Sri Lanka needs tourism so badly. I’d like to specifically thank Shalindra, the duty manager, for all of the effort he put in during our stay and all of his advice outside of the hotel. He is absolutely an asset to the hotel, along with staff across all departments especially housekeeping, kids club ladies and the breakfast and poolside servers. The beach in front of the hotel is a public beach and incredibly dirty which is disappointing but there’s not much the hotel can do about it sadly. The food across the board was exemplary, in particular the fruit and juices! The fruit cutting by the pool each afternoon was a great treat. The dancers were a favourite for my little girl. I’d definitely recommend this hotel for a stop on the way down the coast for sure.
