I couldn't imagine using anyone else to plan my travel to Asia!
Why We Love This Hotel :
History: Combining modern convenience with old-world charm, Ani Villas offers guests the traditional Sri Lankan hospitality experience.
Location: Ani Villas is set on the oceanfront in the center of Sri Lanka’s south coast.
Service: The full complement of staff across the estate includes concierge, spa therapists, personal butlers and private chefs.
Standing on a bluff, overlooking a pristine white sandy beach, Ani Villas is a beautiful sprawling estate where suites, salas and pavilions languish amid lush garden and foliage, just steps from the ocean. Set between the historic coastal towns of Galle and Tangalle, the resort is a gateway to the cultural and natural treasures of the island's south, as well as a peaceful retreat where butlers, chefs and bartenders attend to guests'every whim. Spread between the two villas, Monara and Divia, the guest and master suites are configured to accommodate couples, groups or families and allow easy access to the myriad of facilities. Pools for kids and adults, games rooms and libraries offer pleasant diversions, while delicious cuisine is served day and night in the dining spaces on a full board basis. Between the two villas, the grounds of the main estate house the gym, spa, tennis court and yoga pavilion, providing opportunities for guests to get active.

The resort includes 15 guest rooms and suites, ensconced within the gardens and grounds of Villa Monara and Villa Divia. Amid lush foliage, just steps from the beach, guests can relax in their own private retreat.
The seven guest suites at Ani Villas offer the option of a king-sized bed or two twin beds as well as all the modern conveniences in a gorgeous, elegantly-designed setting, built with local materials.
The property’s eight master king suites feature airy living spaces, bedecked with natural materials and offering beautiful views as well as ensuite facilities, including an outdoor shower.
A full range of facilities is available at Ani Villas, with pools, water slides, libraries and games rooms accessible on both sides of the resort; in the central estate, the choice of gym, spa and tennis court will keep guests occupied.
Indoor pursuits are available in the games rooms, located beneath the master suites on both sides of the estate. A selection of board and card games as well as a TV are on hand for guests looking to escape the sun for a short while.
Both villas boast a cozy library on the second floor, above the lower living salas, where guests can relax, curl up and escape from the world with a tome from the excellent selection.
Each side of the estate boasts its own full-sized adult pool, just steps from the beach and attended by a dedicated pool bar. Likewise, Villa Monara and Villa Divia both have a kids' pool with its own water slide for thrills and spills for the little ones.
Guests can opt to take yoga and meditation classes from the resort's master teachers, either in the dedicated yoga sala or on the sandy beach, for the chance to realign with nature using the sea as a soundtrack.
The cuisine at Ani Villas is a selection of local delicacies and international favorites. The expert culinary team serves aromatic curries and Sri Lankan sweets as well as western fare and dishes from all over Asia.
By the main pools at Villa Monara and Villa Divia are delightful, well-stocked cocktail bars, serving drinks for guests looking for a little refreshment during the heat of the day, or for a tipple before dinner.
The menu is available in the open dining salas across the property, where guests can indulge in anything from a light snack to a sumptuous banquet replete with wine from the well-stocked cellar, all while enjoying gorgeous views of the ocean.
