Ani Villas Sri Lanka declared "Best of the Best" 2016
The yearly travel edition of one of America's most prestigious luxury lifestyle magazines has included one Sri Lankan gem of a resort in its "Best of the Best" list 2016. The Ani Villas Sri Lanka earned its spot in the coveted magazine's shortlist of some of the world's most exclusive luxury hotels thanks to its inspiring design, its spectacular coastal location, the immaculately pristine state of its facilities and surroundings, as well innovative pampering experiences.
Majestically sitting atop a golden-hued bluff, Ani Villas Sri Lanka is one exceptional luxury property boasting the most awe-inspiring views of the sea, the headlands and sandbars beyond. Its stunning location facing a picture-perfect beach, in addition to the superior level of luxury offered across all of its facilities with outstanding personalised service to match, have earned it a coveted spot on Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” 2016 list.
Self-described as “the manual of modern luxury”, Robb Report is a prestigious U.S. luxury lifestyle magazine with renowned international editions in as many 15 different countries (and counting). Its “Best of the Best” annual compilation is one of the most awaited among its loyal luxury travel readers. According to the magazine’s rules for picking out the best among the best, those that make it to this exclusive list, must all have either debuted or relaunched after extensive renovations since March in the previous year.
So what does it actually take for a resort to be featured in Robb’s Report “Best of the Best” list? Well, sublime aesthetics go without saying, breath-taking location is yet another unsurprising must, but there must be something more unique and special to it. So what is it in Ani Villas’ case? Plenty indeed; starting from its reduced, intimate size of just 15 individual villas sleeping a maximum of 30 guests in total.
Each villa is as exquisitely equipped and designed as the next and absolutely all of them come with the bespoke service of a private butler. Oh, and they each include a library, media room, kitchen and dining room. Then there’s the private chef fluent in an array of famously tantalising cuisines: Indian, Thai and Italian, to name but a few. And let’s not forget the amazing, oversized, oceanfront infinity pools and the attentive concierge service on hand to easily arrange you a trip to the 400-year-old Galle Fort or the greener-than-green Ceylon tea plantations.
Especially idyllic for those who want more than serene beach coves, this stunning villa hideaway puts you in direct contact with the best Sri Lanka has to offer, and thanks to its dedicated concierge service, you can easily organise guided trips and tours to see some of the most amazing cultural and historical icons of beautiful Sri Lanka.
And what else does the Ani Villas Sri Lanka have that others don’t? Beyond the ultra-luxurious private villa you can call home for a week or so, there’s the personalised ayurvedic spa treatments to rejuvenate you from the inside out, the daily yoga sessions to put body, mind and soul in tune, the dedicated tennis lessons and the fun cooking classes.
If all that didn’t sound like enough, there’s even more. Kids can make the most of a beachfront pool’s waterslide and their dedicated children’s activity coordinator. For guests’ ultimate indulgence, full time staff include spa therapists, personal trainer, butlers, private chef and general manager.
So, to sum it all up, no, we’re not surprised Ani Villas Sri Lanka was recently featured in Robb Report’s “Best of the Best” 2016. We’d be shocked if it didn’t!
