The Anantaya Resort & Spa Chilaw luxury hotel and resort opened in 2014. Situated on the west coast of Sri Lanka, it’s an hour and a half to two hour drive north of Bandaranaike International Airport. This location lets you away from it all without sacrificing modern comforts.
With a clean, contemporary look, the hotel and resort is keen not to draw attention away from the unique views it offer. With massive windows and private balconies, guests are offered beautiful views of a lagoon on one side of the hotel and the Laccadive Sea on the other.
If you’re eating in, then you can choose from one of two restaurants including ‘The Ocean’, an open air restaurant serving a range of Asian and international foods. If you want to relax and pamper yourself, the spa offers massages. There’s plenty of resort activities too such as beach volleyball, water polo and beach rides.
Or you could head south to the nearby town of Chilaw to explore the many restaurants and bakeries. Chilaw is also home to some beautiful, golden beaches. Or you could head inland to explore the many towns and villages, perhaps going in search of a Buddhist temple.
