Àni Villas’ exclusive estates make their Asian debut.

Àni Villas (anivillas.com) introduced its resort-meets-villa concept in 2010 with the launch of a 10-bedroom cliff-top estate overlooking Anguilla’s secluded Little Bay. Now the brand is bringing its blend of exclusivity and all-inclusive services to Asia with the debut of two new estates this December. In the Sri Lankan town of Dickwella, Àni Villas Sri Lanka will comprise 15 bedrooms spread over two buildings on a palm-dappled beach. On Thailand’s Koh Yao Noi island, the 10-bedroom Àni Villas Thailand (shown) will mirror the traditional architecture of northern Thai temples with a cluster of wing-tipped pavilions. Each estate will come with a dedicated staff, as well as such resort-style amenities as a spa and a fitness center.
