Hotel of the week
Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort
Tangalle, Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka’s first major seafront resort “sets the bar high” for other properties that will follow, said Sarah Gold in The New York Times. “Sprawling but graceful,” the 152-room compound sits on a former coconut plantation on the island’s southern coast. “There is plenty of fabulousness,” including beachfront cabanas, an enormous spa, and three restaurants. I splurged on a private villa, which had its own infinity pool; an enormous bathroom with an open, tiled rainfallshower area; and a private deck where a family of wild peacocks visited me daily. tangalle.anantara.com; doubles start at $188.
