Why we like it
A huge and cleverly designed swimming pool is a centrepiece of this excellent resort.
Anantaya Pasikudah sits on a beautiful stretch of calm Pasikudah beach. The journey from Colombo will take roughly eight hours, and from Habarana, in the cultural triangle, it is just a three-hour drive.
