Top Tips from our Experts

Destination Executive

You need to dine at least once in Verele. This Japanese - Sri Lankan fusion cuisine is the most memorable part of my stay. Not only is the food amazing, the open air feel and sea views make the whole experience complete.

Wonderful

Glasgow, United Kingdom

We have just returned home from a two week stay in Anantara near Tangalle in southern Sri Lanka. This has been, without doubt, one of the best experiences ever. Why? Apart from the beautiful location, the lovely hotel with very good standards, food and accommodation, the staff in Anantara are easily the most pleasant people we've ever encountered anywhere. This is a big statement to make and we are attributing it to a blend of Sri Lankan cultural attitudes and expectations of the people who work there of delivering high standards. There is a general attitude of mutual respect between all staff and towards customers. If part of the quality of your holiday is influenced by the people you encounter frequently on a daily basis then we cannot recommend Anantara Peace Haven highly enough. On another note, neither of us eat meat or fish and found the choice of food very good. As we were there for a fortnight we sampled the three restaurants and the poolside menu several times and found the quality excellent. Valentino the Italian Chef is rightly proud of Il Mare. The prices you pay for extras within the resort are what you'd expect of a good hotel so comparing with local places is not really a fair comparison. If you want less expensive options then there are several nearby. There was an unexpected and pleasant surprise of finding well maintained and managed ecological gardens and small 'nature reserve'. Eddy, who is the naturalist in charge, gives a guided tour and is so knowledgeable and interesting. We were able to watch hatchling turtles make their way to the ocean thanks to Eddy and his assistant Tila. There are so many people we could name, but for the sake of brevity we'll say particular thanks to Nuwan for his in-depth knowledge, thoughtfulness and conversation, Ross (the Scottish GM ;-D) for his helpfulness and always having time for a chat, Eddy for his sincerity and generosity of time, Gayan for his friendly helpfulness and facilitating great dining and cooking experiences and not to forget Perrine for all our chats and Hashan for his consistent good nature. We hope to return. Ayubowan.
