Anantara is set to open its second beachfront resort in Sri Lanka later this year. Situated an hour away from the capital Colombo, the Anantara Kalutara Resort not only offers water views of the Indian Ocean and Kalu River but also lush greenery, further emphasising the feel of a tropical paradise.

The design of the resort drew its inspiration from Sri Lanka's most celebrated architect Geoffrey Bawa and mixes traditional Sri Lankan craftsmanship with touches of contemporary luxury. From the garden rooms to the villas to the unique presidential suite, each space comes with its own private balcony or terrace to fully bask in the natural surroundings. If you prefer the pool to the ocean, each of the villas offer a private pool encircled by a garden to ensure the ultimate relaxation in complete privacy.

If you're into watersports, the resort's private beach is the perfect spot for some jet skiing, water skiing and banana boat rides. Otherwise, head down to the library for a little quiet reading time. Once hunger sets in, make your way to one of the several culinary offerings that combine gastronomy with stunning settings including a beachfront fine Italian restaurant.
