Guest reviews for Anantara Kalutara Resort

3 out of 5

Still a work in progress as Hotel unfinished.

Pros: The room we had was superb as were the breakfasts. The one pool in use and pool service were excellent.
Cons: The continuous background music was intrusive, especially in the evening. The choice of food type needs improvement.
Location: Some beachfront fish restaurants in walking distance offering very good value. Local tour company offering excursions and transfers near main entrance
On check in it was explained that half the accommodation was under repair, including the room we had booked, so we were "upgraded" to the wing that was in operation. Other buildings were under construction with noise, traffic and dust. The main restaurant only opened for breakfast and lunch as they had very few guests. In the evening only the Italian and Asian restaurants were open. Food in the Italian was very good however the Asian was poor quality and both were very overpriced compared to other first class hotels. Money seems to have been concentrated on the ambience and vast numbers of staff.
