Hotel's Favorite
I would like to start by saying that this stay was the best we've experienced in Sri Lanka. We have stayed at many chains local and international but the service we experienced was just amazing. From check-in to check-out the experience was just outstanding. I should mention that Omega at the front office made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms were fantastic and the amenities included were just incredible. It was also very nice of the executive chef who took time to talk to us to ensure that all was well with the food which indeed it was. The buffet spread on Saturday night was simply amazing and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast on Sunday as well. Please keep up the good work and we will certainly be back soon, as we indeed felt we were home.

Anantara Kalutara is clearly the younger sister of the fabulous Anantara Tangalle property. This is quite a bit smaller and has an interesting layout with a council road running down the middle of the property. It is situated in a beautiful locale adjoining both the lagoon and the sea. The original property is designed by Bawa at some point and the current structure has some remnants of his style although it's been heavily modified over the years. The rooms are quite spacious and well-appointed in keeping with the Anantara standards. Sea view rooms are quite a bit away from the main lobby, pool and restaurant so would recommend a lagoon view room. The view is amazing. Especially in the morning. As you get a lovely sunrise. Very peaceful and calm. The pool is decent sized and great for laps. The food is so so. The spread is a lot less than Anantara Tangalle and while there were some stellar dishes, some fell just short of the mark! Brekafast was better than the other two meals. So a B&B option might be a good deal!
