Sri Lanka’s Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort has been listed by the New York Post as one of the top 19 hotels to visit in 2016.
The New York Post article on 21 December says the new hotels they are most looking forward to next year range from “big-name big brands to boutique beauties, and from urban escapes in familiar destinations to far-flung lodges in exotic locales.”
“At least one thing they all have in common? We’re ready to book a room at each and every one,” the Post said listing the Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort in Tangalle, Sri Lanka as one of the top listed hotels.
This January-opening Indian Ocean retreat sits on a 42-acre coconut plantation on Sri Lanka’s southern coast, its 152 locally inflected but largely contemporary rooms and pool villas giving onto a secluded stretch of beach.
This grand resort Tangalle is the doorway to the open beaches of southeast Sri Lanka.Tangalle is the last town of any size before Hambantota and boasts of old world charm.
The resort consists of 120 rooms and 32 stand-alone pool villas, six restaurant and bar venues, an exclusive Ananatara spa, a 35-meter swimming pool, fully equipped cardio-gym, tennis and badminton courts.
Beyond the Ayurvedic spa and six restaurants and bars, the hotel offers easy access to the area’s nature preserves, whale-watching sites and a Buddhist temple built into a rocky cliff.
