ÀNI Dominican Republic offers all the magic, romance, and connection you could possibly desire for the wedding of your dreams, be it religious, legal, or symbolic.

We oversee every detail and can recommend trusted service providers to take care of all the necessary extras, from hair and make-up to cakes, flowers, photography, and entertainment. All you need to do is choose the settings that resonate most with you as a couple.
Birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, promotion, retirement – there is so much to celebrate over the course of a lifetime and nowhere better to celebrate than with family and friends at ÀNI Dominican Republic. Mark these special occasions with multiple events over the course of your stay: a breakfast in Villa Larimar’s Living Pavilion as the sun rises over La Piscina Natural; a feet-in-the-sand barbeque lunch on the beach; a poolside cocktail party; an alfresco feast beneath the stars. Every menu is curated specifically to your group’s needs – whether halaal, kosher, or vegan – and no decor or entertainment is ever the same.
ÀNI Dominican Republic offers a host of dining locations across its private peninsula, two oceanside villas, and manmade beach accommodating up to 80 seated guests.
