Sri Lanka, 18 April 2017: Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort has been recognised in Condé Nast Traveler US’s prestigious 2017 Hot List as one of the best new hotels in the world, as well as one of the hottest new openings in Sri Lanka.
This is the fourth significant international award the resort has won since opening. The property has established itself as one of the leading resorts on the island to travellers both from abroad and locally. Due to this strong support, Anantara Tangalle has achieved significant international and local recognition, including in Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards in 2016, being named on DestinAsian magazine’s 2016 Luxe List and being awarded by Wine Spectator in 2016 for its Il Mare restaurant.
The Condé Nast Traveler Hot List recognises the best new properties around the world and is by far one of the most well regarded awards a hotel can win. Condé Nast Traveler picked 75 hotels on six continents for its annual Hot List, which is announced today. A team of 60 editors and reporters visited 50 countries to review hundreds of new properties first-hand. They came back with the most outstanding winners that represent not just the best of the best of the world, but where travellers will be heading next.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be included in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Hot List. The award is among the most admired recognitions of excellence in the travel industry and a true reflection of our incredible team. It is a conclusion of months, indeed years, of hard work by both pre- and post-opening teams. The entire resort team and I are excited about this great recognition,” said Ross Sanders, General Manager of Anantara Tangalle.
Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort offers guests a unique resort experience in Sri Lanka. Located on the island’s southern coastline, the resort is set on a secluded stretch of beach amidst a 21-acre coconut plantation. Each of the 120 guest rooms and 32 private pool villas exude serenity and the spacious interiors blend comfortable luxury with modern amenities. From the culinary side, dining experiences offer a stunning cliff edge, shoreline and poolside settings. Unforgettable dining experiences are enjoyed with Sri Lanka’s distinctive flavours and cultural traditions, and also excite discerning palates with refined international tastes and elegant surprises.
