Over the top amazing!
Reviewed 4 months ago

Ani Villa is truly special. We traveled 2 weeks in Sri Lanka and finished the trip with 5 blissful nights at Ani. The property is gorgeous, private, and well situated for activities nearby (although there are plenty of activities right on sight to keep you busy and/or not busy if you just want to chill!) The best part is the staff.. they are endearing, warm and caring in a way I've never experienced at a hotel or villa. They anticipate your every need and want, they go way above and beyond what is expected (even if you are used to Butler service!), and they surprise you constantly with lovely gestures that make you never want to leave. I was teary eyed when we left! We went with our family of 4 (kids age 8 and 11). They were wonderful with the kids and at one point told my husband and I to go enjoy our evening, they would look after the kids! Chef Cyril is awesome, very creative and I warn you he loves to feed his guests! Husband and I are vegan, and kids like kids stuff (burgers etc) and he accommodated us all too well! I can go on and on but some of the magic is in the surprise of how well they take care of the guests so I will leave it at that. If you have the chance to stay here, it is a must! Oh and the more the merrier here...we would absolutely love to come back with lots of family. So much fun!

Amazing, Spiritual Yoga Retreat Space!
Reviewed 8 months ago

I held a yoga retreat at Any Villas in January and we had the most spectacular time! We are used to holding retreats in beautiful destinations throughout the world but this retreat really was the best! Yeshi and his team did everything possible to make our stay above 5 stars, They adapted the food to all of our requirements and my students were all overwhelmed with the hospitality provided. The fact that you have the villa to yourselves is something extra special and there are many amazing spaces to practise yoga and mediation (covered and uncovered) We were supplied with fresh, cooled towels and water for your yoga space and fresh juices after. The team all respected our desire for silence in the mornings and they burned insence throughout the day, so it really had the feel of an exclusive yoga retreat centre.
The rooms are out of this world and Sri Lanka and the surrounding areas, villages are so special and very spiritual. I think this is the perfect space for a yoga retreat. You would not be disappointed, Thank you all at Ani Villas for making our retreat so special and unique

Wedding Dreams Come True
Reviewed 10 months ago

We were married in Feb 2018 at Ani Villas in Sri Lanka. This is one of those rare places and experiences that IS actually as good as it seems. The entire time we were planning with Yeshi (the Asia GM) and our 28 guests, we thought this was surely too good to be true. But, it WAS true!

Neither of us had ever been to Sri Lanka, nor worked with Ani Villas before. We were amazed and absolutely thrilled to have made the choice to get married with them, there. Yeshi, Dinesh, Chameera, Shihani, Manjula, Palitha, Chef Cyril, and everyone on the team was spectacular. From first booking to planning travel and picking every detail for the wedding, they made it a dream wedding, and also a dream experience for a full week. Yeshi's and his team's years with luxury resorts really showed in the execution of the wedding evening and the full week with 28 of our family and friends.

The wedding itself was just a part of the spectacular adventure. While we lived in bathing suits most the week, we went formal for the wedding, and enjoyed a live saxophone player, DJ, fireworks, photography, amazing flowers (what a selection!), an incredible variety of delicious and perfectly prepared food -- all made exactly to order by Chef Cyril -- Chameera, our wonderful celebrant!!!, and more. We went on a safari, whale watching, temple visiting, tuk-tuk riding, beach volleyball...and not everyone did every outing -- Ani Villas managed the whims of our international group (French, American, Belgium, and German!) with expert attention. No request was too small and in fact, if they just heard us mention an idea, it became a reality right away!

Most importantly, everyone treated each of our group with genuine care. They personally made our "special day" a truly special week. We have traveled many places around the world and experienced "luxury" resorts and villas -- this is the best experience we have ever had.

We fear if we give too glowing a review, they will get all booked up and we won't be able to go back! We fully plan to!

But, since we now how hard it was to find the perfect place for an exceptional wedding experience, we are happy to tell you that Ani Villas Sri Lanka is the place and they are people you've been looking for! (And if you would like to ask us anything, feel free to send us a message on Trip Advisor; we would be happy to share anything that may be helpful.)

Thank you, Ani Villas, for everything -- we truly don't have the right words to express how grateful we are to you.

Best family holiday ever!
Reviewed 11 months ago

The most friendly, caring and attentive staff we've ever come across. They were genuine and one step ahead of us all the time. We had our own chef and the food was fantastic. Indian, asian and local. And international cuisine as well. We're 16 in the family and the accommodations in suites around the 25 meter pool were perfect. Gym, spa and tennis court 20 adjacent. They served us dinners and lunches on the lawn, on the beach and even in the pool. Amazing.

Loved every moment!

Our 4 night stay at Ani Villas was incredible. Every detail you could possibly imagine is looked after. The entire team were so happy to help us, and no request was too big (we even had a movie night with a projector by the pool!) I would come back in a heartbeat!
