Three restaurants offer a variety of dining options and local specialties. There is the Spice Spoons Cooking School and Upper Deck Bar and Dining by Design for tailor made private dinners.
The Anantara Spa offers 10 treatment rooms with holistic Ayurvedic therapies and western spa treatments. The double-story space features two yoga and meditation pavilions and is surrounded by a lotus pond.
Three meeting rooms are available and a 500-seat conference center is slated to open in January 2017. An SUV limousine service is available for trips between the resort and Kalutara South Station, and Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport.
Anantara Kalutara Resort is the brand’s second resort destination to open in the country. The brand’s first resort, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle, opened in December 2015.
