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.

Beautiful hotel. Fantastic service. Amazing food. And a commitment to preserve the environment. We were offered filtered water, we could reduce the amount of plastic bottled water we needed straight away. Thank you. Lots of wildlife in the grounds of the hotel. And right

We stayed here for 5 days in a deluxe sea view room. The drumming and singing as we arrived was a nice welcome, as was the delicious coconut drink. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived (it was late morning so this is reasonable to expect). I think to kill some time and probably

The restaurants are fabulous and it is well worth the upgrade.

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.

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 View - Higher Floor"
"Try and get a room with a high floor so you get a better view of the Ocean."
"3rd floor, On the 2nd or 3rd building from the reception."
"Block 5 (or 4) are best, go for top floor with room at either end 538 or 531, I wouldn't opt for a bungalow villa"
"Block 5 is nearest the beach and furthest away from the pool activity. Perfect if you require peace and tranquillity."
