Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort in Sri Lanka has been recognised as the winner of ‘Destination Retreat Programme of the Year’ by AsiaSpa magazine at its 14th annual AsiaSpa Awards. Anantara Tangalle is the first and only resort spa in Sri Lanka to receive this prestigious accolade. 

This award adds further to the impressive collection of awards and international recognition of the Anantara Spa Tangalle, including the Condé Nast Johansens Award for Excellence 2018 announced earlier this month and being named as one of Asia’s top 10 Wellness Retreats 2018 by Singapore Tatler.

Launched in 2005, the AsiaSpa Awards sets a benchmark for quality and innovation, as well as recognising the leaders in Asia’s dynamic wellness industry. Innovation and quality are integral to the AsiaSpa Awards, whose intent is to acknowledge and credit spas and properties that push the envelope and evolve in this increasingly sophisticated industry. 

The Anantara Spa Tangalle celebrated the title of Destination Retreat Programme of the Year, an honour impeccably bestowed to the launch of its four wellness programs at the beginning this year. The Spa rolled out four seven-night wellness journeys based on the guiding philosophies of Ayurveda, designed to balance and nourish mental and physical health. Guests can escape the stresses of modern life and can take the time to unwind and re-centre themselves at their own pace with the newest initiative from Balance Wellness by Anantara. With these principles in mind, the Anantara Spa Tangalle created the following programs:


  • Inner Harmony – Calm mind and body to create emotional and spiritual balance.
  • Deep Sleep – Give oneself well-deserved time to relax, heal and rebuild.
  • Natural Weight – Discover the ayurvedic approach to healthy weight management and vitality.
  • A Rebuilding Detox – Detoxify physically and mentally, and rebuild natural energy.

This is the 10th significant international award the resort has won as the property has established itself as one of the leading resorts on the island to both local and overseas travellers. Due to this strong support, the resort has achieved significant international and local recognition, including in Condé Nast Traveler US Readers’ Choice Awards in 2017 and 2018, being named on DestinAsian magazine’s 2016 Luxe List, being awarded by Wine Spectator for three consecutive years 2016 – 2018 for its Il Mare restaurant, included in the Condé Nast Traveler US 2017 Hot List and being nominated by Singapore Tatler as one of Asia’s top 10 Wellness Retreats 2018.

Anantara Tangalle Resort offers guests a unique resort experience in Sri Lanka. Located on the island’s southern coastline, the resort is set on a secluded stretch of beach amidst a 21-acre coconut plantation. Each of the 120 guest rooms and 32 private pool villas display utmost serenity and the spacious interiors blend comfortable luxury with modern amenities. From the culinary side, dining experiences offer a stunning cliff edge, shoreline and poolside settings. Unforgettable dining experiences are enjoyed, paired with cultural traditions, and also excite discerning palates with refined international tastes and elegant surprises.
