Service and Relaxation at Peace Haven

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Recently stayed at the Anantara Peace Haven resort for 3 nights. Upon our arrival at the hotel, our vehicle was thoroughly inspected by security (giving peace of mind for those worried about the Easter Sunday problems). Driving up to the entrance we were warmly greeted with a traditional Sri Lankan welcome. Check in was quick and we were granted a room upgrade, late checkout, and a high floor as requested (what more could we ask for). Room was great, typically Anantara, well appointed and all the things you need (minibar, Nespresso machine, ironing board, beach bags, umbrellas etc.). Great king bed, very comfy. Good Wifi. Large bathroom with rain shower. Lovely big balcony with daybed and 2 chairs and table and sea views. The resort gives off the usual Anatara vibe of calmness, is nicely laid out, and overall very relaxing, living up to its name of Peace Haven. Gym and spa are both good. The well-kept hotel grounds lead out onto a small stretch of beach, but its not really one for relaxing on as the waves come rolling in quite heavily and there are strong currents (maybe seasonal?). As the beach is not private, you do have to put up with a few hawkers trying to sell sea shells and other things - we politely told them we weren't interested and they were not to much of a bother in fairness. We didn't venture out of the hotel during our stay so cannot comment on the surrounding area. The large central two-tiered swimming pool with surrounding pool bar was lovely to sit at and relax, as well as swim a few lengths early in the morning before it starts to fill up. The pool bar offered up the usual fare of rice and curry, burgers, shrimps, pizza, sandwiches etc. - all was decent. The main restaurant, Journeys, had an extensive buffet breakfast offering with live cooking stations - a great breakfast. For dinner, we tried the two main restaurants, Verala (Asian mix) and Ill Mare (Italian). Ill Mare was the better of the two, and enjoyed a good quality steak there on our final night. Found Verala concept a bit confused - European style soup starter and deserts, and Sri Lankan, Chinese and Japanese mains, underneath a big steel dome. I guess they are trying to cater for many different tastes here, and it wasn't bad, just would be more coherent if the cuisines didn't span so wide and the setting wasn't so abstract. All throughout our stay all the staff were great. Friendly, courteous and professional. Room service was quick. Our Guest Relation Officer, Sayuri, was great and checked in with us regularly to make sure all was good and to see if she could arrange anything for us - actually we were easy to accommodate and didn't want for much, happy instead to relax at the resort and enjoy it to its fullest. That said, she was on hand at all times if needed and provided a great, friendly service. Overall, very happy with our stay at the Anantara Peace Haven. Service is great, value proposition is good, the resort has much to offer and its a very enjoyable place to relax for a few days. Will definitely consider returning in the future and would highly recommend.

Couple’s Retreat in the beautiful Sri Lanka

We had such a great, relaxing, refreshing time in Sri Lanka. The Anantara Peace Haven is tranquil, has beautiful scenery, great facilities, food and staff (Sayuri so hospitable and helpful, Eddie the nature conservationist, Ranjith the driver, all waiters and housekeeping were extremely friendly and great service overall!). Food including the fresh fruits were to die for. If you want a break from the hustle and bustle this is the place.
