Love at First Sight

Positioned discreetly between the sapphire blue Indian Ocean and an idyllic tropical lagoon, Anantaya Resort Chilaw makes for the perfect coastal getaway. Tucked away in this little rural fishing town, this hidden gem boasts a breathtaking seaside dining experience filled with gastronomic delight, a luxuriously accommodating lounge bar and a pool terrace for those who may wish to relax and revitalise without venturing from the hotel.


Anantaya Resort exudes romance at its very heart. The tropical climate and stunning views, combined with the peaceful and intimate surroundings, make this a perfect couple's retreat. Whether sampling freshly cooked native culinary delights, or absorbing the exotic history the country has to offer, there are few places in the world that can offer such opulent accommodation, indulgent activities and culturally diverse experiences. For newlyweds embarking upon a lifetime's journey together, or those who are already somewhere down that road, this is the perfect place to unwind, enjoy and romance.

Your Stay

This peacefully plush enclave caters for your every whim. You could opt for a private balcony and lagoon view, so you can watch the sun set and the stars dazzle upon the vast panorama with your loved one, and the Suite Rooms all have four poster beds, so you can gaze out at the morning sun creeping over the horizon; essentially, Anantaya is the epitome of extravagance. The tropical paradise of Chilaw offers the perfect respite from the world, whatever you desire.

What to Do

There is an array of culturally diverse activities and excursions available at Antantaya, and beyond - with something to suit every individual taste. Unwind in the rich opulence the retreat has to offer: Indulge with yoga and aromatherapy in the resort's tranquil spa, set amidst still waters, and guaranteed to rest even the busiest of minds. Treat yourself to massage, facials and nail care in this exclusive haven, without so much as leaving the hotel grounds. Further afield, there are culturally enriching experiences to be had, such as the awe-inspiring one thousand year-old Munneswaram Hindu temple, or becoming at one with nature by experiencing the Wilpattu National Park, where you’ll find leopards, elephants and water buffalo.

The Food of Love

Anantaya's restaurant offers stunning panoramic vistas of the soft, sandy Chilaw beach, with exquisite views of the ocean that stretch as far as the eye can see. Savour the cultural Asian delights the menu has to offer; rejuvenating breakfast buffets, a delicious lunchtime offering, and even an indulgent à la carte menu. Whatever the occasion, the restaurant revels in presenting you with unrivalled local cuisine, with fresh seafood caught from the harbour. This is dining you will both remember for a lifetime.
