We had a great time in Anantaya Resort & Spa - Pasikudah. The place was well architecture and we really enjoyed 3 nights stay in end April'18. The property was well maintained, rooms were cleaned, food was excellent and F&B staff was very warm and friendly.

I wish to recognized and acknowledged Chef Lakmal Wegoola who made our stay memorable. We being Sri Lankans, he made very effort to make us feel home. He was kind enough to take us around in the kitchen and we had a detailed tour in the kitchen area. We were amazed by the hygiene, food quality and the cleanliness of the kitchen. We wish to convey our sincere thanks and gratitude to Chef Lakmal. He was truly outstanding from the rest.

On the flip side, it was rather disappointing experience when we were checked-in. We requested two rooms adjoining to each other and it was confirmed by Mr. Madhawa Kalawana Assistant Front Office Manager. But we ended up having one room on the 1st floor and other on the 2nd floor. We wanted this arrangement as we have two young kids. After couple of phone calls back and forth, the staff assured that they will provide the next door room on the following day which was arranged as per the promise.

Stepped in for dinner and it was a great spread. The food was delicious and there was a good variety. The restaurant has an open air section and it overlooks the garden which was nice. All in all a great experience. Will visit shortly to stay over.

We were at the resort for two days and it felt like we were there forever. We were there to celebrate or first wedding anniversary and we must say we don't regret that, In fact we were given a with a pleasant surprise :) Those people are just amazing. The way they treat you with a wonderful true smile, the every time you come across them, is just so welcoming. That's the best thing about it.

The food here was excellent. All three meals had variety, and most importantly, they tasted delicious. We got to know the chef and found that all the food and beverages are made under his strict supervision and with ISO standard controls and he was really good at making them do the best. Thank You Mr. Athula Kumarage. It was such a nice experience.

The rooms are nice and clean. Has an automated climate control. The room service staff are very keen to help at any time you need.

The property is beautiful and facing the blue sea with shallow waters of eastern Sri Lanka. They have water sports ready on requests.

Finally we must thank Mr. Sarath the food & Beverage Manager along with Laxman, Muditha & Ravi for making our stay a such wonderful one.

Cheers!

Room tip: Rooms with direct pool entrance are the best place to be.

Upon arrival we were directed to the reception area which is out in the open and high up with a gorgeous view of the ocean, palm trees, etc The view was spectacular and amazing. We were impressed with the unique Thai architecture. From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect! Check in process was smooth. Though we arrived before the check-in time, they were good enough to give our rooms early which is highly appreciated.
Room was excellent with the all the amenities and were very clean with a pleasant smell. Room cleaned every day and provided us with fresh bottled water etc. Housekeeping staff was very friendly and responded quickly for all our needs. The bedrooms were very spacious with a huge bed with great water pressure. There was a full length mirror, a full size ironing board and iron and the walk in wardrobe too. Free toiletries were available without toothpaste. Room had plenty of plug sockets. Pool was fantastic with a great view of the sea. The pool is safe - there is no deep end. There is also a shallow area for children and also a poolside bar.
We were fortunate enough to be treated to a special fine dining dinner hosted outside, facing the sea under the moon. The chef made sure he checked on our satisfaction personally. A very special mention to Mr. Ranika, Mr. Kalawana, Chef Athula,and everyone in the main restaurant and at the resort for making our stay a truly memorable one We truly enjoyed our stay and we are very grateful for the service we received. Would definitely recommend Anantaya to anyone who is looking for accommodation on the east coast. Food served in the buffet is tasty with a good variety although not an extensive menu. We loved the Sri Lankan menu a lot and the soft music played during the meals.
Very helpful and pleasant staff throughout the hotel. Professional service, courtesy and quality behavior in the employees flows from top to down. The hospitality they extend is out of this world.
We enjoyed watching the fishing boats come and start trading early in the morning. Beach is safe for swimming and great for walking. There is also a Security guard on duty 24 hours at beach/property line and the employees. The sunrise from the sea a spectacular view that one should never miss. It is very calm and has a relaxing atmosphere.
We were there for three nights and will definitely return. Keep up the good work guys and we wish everyone at the resort all the best for the years to come!

Room tip: Get an upstairs room with ocean view, or if you love the pool, get one with pool access

We stayed in the villa with our family . It was beautiful clean and cosy . Great interior design and the gardens well kept and beach activities fab.one draw back was having wash basins in the bedroom and lack of space for toiletries in our bedroom.

There was an initial lack of communication issues but once we complained they rectified the problems and changed their styles of communicating to patrons .

The beach was golden water warm and swimming in the sea was fabulous . No corals on the beach and we truly enjoyed beach volleyball.

The food was okay at the hotel . But, if you wanted anything special they will cook your favourite dishe with prior notice .Lobster, Crab , Mullet etc

Overall stay was excellent and we recommend to bring your families and have fun in this beautiful spot .
