The perfect escape

Fabulous stay at Anantaya. The pool was gorgeous and the children absolutely loved it. The Indian Ocean delivered as usual and was like a welcoming warm bath. The staff were brilliant always willing to go the extra mile to make our stay extra special. A special thanks to Lalith, Athula and Shavini!
