Ani Private Resorts reveals plans for second resort in Anguilla

Private resort collection Ani Private Resorts has revealed plans for a second development on the Caribbean island of Anguilla. 

The 15-suite estate will be located on Shoal Bay and will feature a tennis court, a gym, an Ani Spa, a beach-fronted pavilion for living and dining, and experiential pursuits such as a waterslide. The property will have a 1:1 ratio of guests to staff.

The new development will mark the brand’s fifth private retreat, joining properties in Dominican Republic, Thailand and Sri Lanka. Ani’s existing property in Anguilla is located above Little Bay on the island’s northern coast.

The design of each property harnesses local materials with a focus on expansive outside-in living, versatile spaces, privacy and commanding views. 

Each of Ani’s private villa estates accommodates between 20 and 30 people across 10 or 15 suites.

Each stay is all-inclusive, spanning personalised meals, spa treatments, tailored excursions and kids’ activities. Stand-out guests privileges include up to 15 spa treatments per day (dependent on resort), cooking and dance classes, personal training, sunset boat trips, local guided tours, cultural shows and rituals, youth entertainment and babysitting services. 

Guests of Ani Private Resorts are also invited to visit the non-profit Ani Art Academies that are located close to each resort.

The academies offer aspiring artists an opportunity to learn and hone their skills through an intensive, four-year art skills education at no personal cost, with all revenue from the sales of artwork going directly back to the students. Both Ani Resorts and Ani Art Academies were founded by philanthropist and arts patron Tim Reynolds in 2010.

Chief executive Yeshi Phuntso said: “With the success of our current properties, and the demand for private retreats continuing to rise, we see an ideal opportunity to expand the brand.

“At Ani we celebrate togetherness and as such the resorts are designed exclusively for one group of guests at a time, making them ideal for special occasion travel, multi-generational travel, groups of friends and destination weddings.” 

Reservations start from a minimum of six suites for five nights. Rates start from $13,000 per night for six suites.
