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

Food & Beverage
Focused on creating beautiful settings in which to savour exquisite cuisine, ÀNI’s dining philosophy ensures that every meal is an unforgettable, full sensory experience – a new memory in the making. Designed exclusively around your personal tastes and preferences, at ÀNI Sri Lanka, our private chefs curate breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus daily that draw on the island’s incredible culinary heritage and the natural bounty it offers, while also showcasing global cuisines. In-between treats range from freshly baked cakes to home-churned ice-cream; free-flow beverages are always on hand with our all-day pool butler service; and traditional afternoon teas celebrate the leaves of Ceylon, as the island was once known, with tea tastings and local snacks.
ÀNI’s wellness philosophy is one of simple truth, that wellbeing stems not from striving, but through balance in all things. This is very much in line with the principles of Ayurveda, India and Sri Lanka’s ancient healing system meaning ‘the science of life’. Incorporating Ayurvedic treatments and culinary lore, ÀNI Sri Lanka’s wellness offering encompasses movement, relaxation, nutrition, and nature’s life giving presence, gifting a true sense of life-enhancing equilibrium.
Situated on Sri Lanka’s south coast between the picturesque market towns of Dickwella to the east and Tallala to the west.
ÀNI is all-inclusive, from every personalised meal and spa treatment, to tailored excursions and kids’ activities. This means no hidden costs or price lists; just pure relaxation and the time and space for guests to focus on what is important to them.
