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.
Swim in our two 25-metre sparkling pools, practice yoga or Pilates in our tranquil gardens or the Meditation Pavilion, improve your serve with daily tennis lessons, or play beach volleyball to work up a fun-induced sweat. Whether you’re after mindful movement or joyful exercise, our comprehensive fitness offering radiates from our fully equipped and air-conditioned, glass-fronted gym, where a personal trainer awaits to take care of your every movement need.
Enjoy up to 15 spa treatments a day in our peaceful double spa treatment suite, where the healing hands of our therapists work their soothing magic. Surrender to an Ayurvedic, sports, reflexology, or head massage and feel its benefits for the rest of your day – and night. Relaxation is not exclusive to the spa, however. ÀNI Sri Lanka’s entire design promotes unwinding, whether you do so on a sun lounger by the pool or strolling along the beach at sunrise or sunset.
Cloaked in a rhapsody of greens with a white smile of sand stretching as far as the eye can see, ÀNI Sri Lanka’s natural setting on the shores of the Indian Ocean offers solace and healing in just one glimpse. To stay and absorb this beauty day after day is as beneficial to your holistic wellbeing as breathing the ocean-scented air.
Between the picturesque market towns of Dickwella to the east and Tallala to the west, just an hour’s drive from UNESCO-protected Galle Fort and two hours from a clutch of national parks, ÀNI Sri Lanka is perfectly placed for exploring the south coast’s natural, cultural, and historic treasures. Our local team takes great pride and pleasure in sharing the region’s many highlights, seamlessly arranging any possible excursion or experience outside of ÀNI’s guest privileges.
The inviting waters of the Indian Ocean can be explored in so many different ways. Book private surfing lessons with our local pro, or cruise the coastline in a private catamaran on a blue whale- and dolphin-sighting expedition. Deep sea fishing and scuba diving provide adrenaline-fuelled open-water fun for the more adventurous, while the whole family will enjoy releasing turtle hatchlings from a local hatchery.
