Guests can take a deep dive into island life at Anantara Kalutara Resort, located in a peaceful setting on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast where the Kalu Ganga estuary meets the Indian Ocean. Kalutara itself is a sacred Buddhist location and the home of the Kalutara Viharaya Buddhist Temple as well as the famous Kalutara Chaitya Stupa. With its Geoffrey Bawa-inspired architecture and 360-degree ocean and lagoon views, this is a great location to explore everything Sri Lanka and its tropical southwest coast have to offer.

Detailed touches like his and hers sinks, standalone bathtubs, rain showers, and luxury amenities including a Nespresso machine and wine humidor, ensure a comfortable stay. Guests can choose between the resort’s sparkling swimming pool and their own private plunge pool for a dip or enjoy wine tasting and private starlit dining arranged by a dedicated villa host.
The resort offers a variety of dining options, including international cuisine with Sri Lankan highlights throughout the day at Olu, delicious Asian dishes at Spice Traders, and Mediterranean fine dining at Acquolina. ‘Dining by Design’ provides guests with an intimate outdoor dining experience, while a refreshing drink can be enjoyed in the Upper Deck Lounge and Sports Bar or at the Pool Bar.
