Two stunning salas, Villa Monara (meaning peacock), and Villa Divia (meaning leopard), are sleek in design and are inspired by Sri Lankan architecture principles and tropical modernism. Boasting spacious living areas, bright floor-to-ceiling windows and exceptional views, the villa accommodates up to 30 guests across 15 suites. Family Suites offer a twin bed setup that can be configured into a king-size bed, as well as a garden courtyard for the children to play and adults to unwind. Classic Suites conveniently connect to Family Suites and come equipped with an alluring private plunge pool or terrace. Split Level Suites also provide private plunge pools or terraces, but their two-storey layouts mean you can flit between gentle garden views and sweeping ocean vistas.
Traditional Sri Lankan, French and Japanese cuisine, or whatever you fancy in the moment, can be rustled up by your private chef and served in a location of your choosing. Relax on the beach with a picnic; enjoy a magical dinner under a canopy of palm leaves and twinkling lights; or enjoy a distinctive barefoot dining experience in the swimming pool.
Five acres of verdant, landscaped garden offer ample space to relax in, be it with a game on the shuffleboard or dip in the swimming pool via the tempting water slide. A winding path lined with coconut palms leads onto the three-mile stretch of golden beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, where beach barbecues under blazing sunsets make for memorable evenings.
Rolling waves stretch on forever from the beach ahead of you. Meanwhile, well-tended gardens are enclosed by verdant jungle meaning your views will never be disturbed by passerbys, with exception for the occasional peacock, of course.
WHY WE LIKE IT:
With a sleek and modern design, acres of sprawling grounds, and a stunning stretch of beach to relax on, ANI Sri Lanka offers a perfect insight into Sri Lanka’s enchanting allure. However, it is the villa’s outstanding all-inclusive programme, with endless activities at the villa, explorations into the local area and totally bespoke dining, that really makes this villa extra special.
