Description


Welcome to ÀNI Sri Lanka, a private, all-inclusive, 15-suite beachfront property bookable exclusively for one group of guests alone.

This incredible sweeping beachfront estate can accommodate up to 30 guests, making it ideal for large families or groups looking to enjoy this exceptional property in Sri Lanka. Bookings can be from 6 to 15 suites, depending on the size of your group. The estate is set across five acres (two hectares) along the south coast of Sri Lanka. The property is one of ÀNI’s private all-inclusive resorts and boasts a peaceful environment in one of the most spectacular locations.

Located on a gentle rise above a palm-fringed beach near Dickwella, the resort claims mesmerizing views of the Indian Ocean. It can accommodate up to 30 guests across eight Split-Level Suites, four Classic Suites, and three Family Suites. These are nestled around two double-story Living Salas–Villa Monara and Villa Divia–which overlook their vast infinity pools and the sea on either side of an emerald swathe of lawn.

Situated to maximize their staggering Indian Ocean views, Villa Monara - meaning Peacock, and Villa Divia - meaning Leopard, are two-story, poolside Living Salas, each housing an air-conditioned dining area, interactive show kitchen, lounge, bar, wine cellar, library, and terrace.

An elevator in Villa Monara connects the library -upstairs to the bar lounge - downstairs, and gentle slopes offer wheelchair access throughout the resort. Villa Monara offers an expansive games room and TV room, while Villa Divia features a spacious children’s entertainment and TV room and a meeting room. Whichever villa you are staying in, there is something for younger group members to keep themselves entertained after a day on the beach. Each Living Sala’s suites are housed in separate structures overlooking the two infinity swimming pools or farther back on the property, surrounded by lush vegetation.

Each suite effortlessly connects indoors to out, with floor-to-ceiling glass doors inviting sea breezes and fresh air within. Vaulted bamboo ceilings and terrazzo floors are complemented by hand-carved antiques, offset by crisp white linen and subtly textured soft furnishings. In addition, most suites offer expansive terraces with double daybeds, four Split-Level Suites, and three Classic Suites that boast their private plunge pools.

A destination unto itself, ÀNI offers every facility and service a group of guests could dream of during their stay. The home features a beautiful gym where you can keep fit while on vacation. The air-conditioned, glass-fronted gym rests beside the double spa treatment suite and tennis court, and two children’s swimming pools with long, winding water slides provide hours of entertainment. An outdoor shuffleboard court offers fun for all ages, while the yoga and meditation pavilion and 3-mile (5 km) beach offer different forms of escape and relaxation.

The resort’s discreet and dedicated team of 30 staff members is available around the clock to tailor every detail–from unique dining, cultural, and wellness moments to kids’ activities and exploration of the region. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served each day in different settings across the resort, with every menu tailored according to guest preferences. Contact your concierge to arrange all details before your arrival.

Free-flow beverages, including juices, premium spirits, cocktails, and wines, can be enjoyed whenever you wish. Up to 15 spa treatments per day are included, tennis lessons, personal training, yoga and Pilates, guided cycling tours, movies by moonlight, cooking classes, beach sports, tuk-tuk tours around local villages, and more. Complimentary roundtrip airport transfers make traveling to ÀNI a breeze, and complimentary babysitting and a daily children’s activity program keep kids entertained.
