This vibrant resort, set across five acres of lush countryside on the seafront, is ideal for discerning travellers looking for a fuss-free and luxurious all-inclusive escape to Sri Lanka that’s enjoyable for all of the family.
With world-class food and drink, a stunning location, spas, bars, entertainment, and epic waterslides, Ani Villas Sri Lanka ticks all of the boxes and elevates the notion of a beachfront luxury escape to a whole new level.
It would be an understatement to describe the ultra-luxe accommodation as a villa, when the space, privacy, freedom, and impeccable personalised service are vastly more akin to a private luxury resort.
Comprised of two villas that house 15 suites, which each offering separate sleeping and living areas and spectacular views of the ocean beyond. The magnificent contemporary villas are expertly designed by Reda Amalou and AW2 of Paris, combining contemporary tropical architecture with the finest bespoke furnishings in a style influenced by iconic Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa and the traditional layout of salas – open-air pavilions with wood columns and vaulted ceilings. Surrounded by coconut trees and lush greenery, each villa also boasts a formal dining area, fully equipped kitchen, communal library and is equipped with a stargazing area.
The sensational five-acre grounds weave together the untamed nature of the surrounding area with controlled, serene luxury and manicured gardens. Labyrinthine paths guide you around the grounds, playfully inviting you to discover four swimming pools, including separate kids pools with water slides, 200 metres of private beachfront, a yoga pavilion, tennis courts, and fitness facilities along with dedicated coaches. Ani Villas ensures that the choice is always yours, from arranging dining experiences under the stars to having a private spa treatment in your villa or embarking on a cycling or walking trek of the surrounding area, dedicated staff will move mountains to give you the perfect experience.
Hiring out the decadent villas in their entirety is a wonderful option for a family or group getaway, and children are extremely well catered for at Ani Villas. Each villa has its own kids pool equipped with exciting slides, and with a dedicated children’s activity coordinator organising everything from treasure hunts and arts and crafts to cooking classes and table tennis, you can rest assured that little ones are having the time of their lives and enjoy worry-free relaxation.
All food at Ani is prepared by Chef Cyril, who presents a varied á la carte menu of local Sri Lankan dishes as well as international favourites that can be enjoyed wherever you like: on the terrace, in the living pavilions or even on the beach. For an extra special meal, Chef Cyril can even create a surprise menu just for you.
On offer are 15 modern and spacious suites set within two standalone villas: Villa Monara and Villa Divia. In each suite, you’ll find a king-sized bed or twin beds plus additional beds upon request, a living room with ocean views and an en suite bathroom.
Activities and Entertainment
The Ani estate boasts a wide array of different activities, perfect for couples, families and groups alike. The dedicated children’s pools and waterslides are a fun accompaniment to the oversized oceanfront pool and ideal for keeping the little ones entertained.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to escape the heat, while the little ones play in the games room or play pool, for the adults there’s also a spa – perfect for a spot of rejuvenation alongside your stay. If you’re looking for something more active, there’s also a gym, yoga pavilion and a tennis court. Just a short walk away, you’ll also find Ani’s private beach where you can sunbathe, swim and even enjoy surfing lessons.
In addition, to help every member of the family get the most of their escape, there’s also an incredible complimentary children’s program. With cycling tours, beach walks, sports and cooking lessons, there’s something a little for everyone. If you would like to enjoy a romantic evening with just the adults, there are also babysitting services on offer.
If you’d like to adventure a little further afield, day trips can easily be made to Galle Fort, the Mulkirigala Rock Temple and the Udawalawe National Park. Our Travel Specialists can also arrange for you to go whale and dolphin watching or to visit the local turtle hatchery.
