Anantaya Passikudah

Secluded paradise on Sri Lanka's pristine east coast

Set on the white sands of Sri Lanka's pristine east coast, the Anantaya Passikudah is surrounded by azure waters and coral reefs. Combine the stunning surroundings with a premium all inclusive service and a resort that keeps true to traditional Sri Lankan architecture and you have the ideal beachfront haven.

With a range of accommodations from their modern guest rooms with furnished balconies to large villas with private plunge pools, every couple, group and family will find the perfect way to make the most of their stay. 

We recommend touring the beauty and history of inland Sri Lanka and finishing your itinerary with an extended beach stay here to make the most of this exceptional island. Best accessed by a short 50 minute domestic flight from Colombo via Kandy, you will see the island's striking landscapes from the skies above.

Heaven on the earth..

I visited there with my spouse, for a vacation at the end of the October. It's a picturesque beautiful place. The architecture of the hotel is just like Thailand, perfectly designed. Staff are very friendly n helpful. Although they offered us ala Carte menu , foods are superb and delicious. Love the place n we will come back definitely..
