ANI Dominican Republic - Guest Privileges - Beach BBQ

May stays for every kind of explorer

Over the next few months, we are arranging a calendar of special events to suit every type of traveler. From Caribbean music and restorative wellness to starry cuisine and artisan cocktails, here are four irresistible reasons to book a May stay with ÀNI Private resorts. Bed down for five nights or more to take advantage of these limited-edition experiences. In order to confirm our specialist partners, all bookings must be made and confirmed by 31 March 2024. The only hard bit? Deciding which of our exclusive-use resorts to opt for, from Anguilla and Thailand to Sri Lanka and the Dominican Republic. Luckily, each one is incredible.

For yoga and wellness:
ÀNI Anguilla

Throughout May, our visiting yoga expert, Suzy Scholz, hailing from Saint Martin will offer guests a very special daily rotation of classes. Suzy proudly wears the dual hats of instructor and perpetual student, fervently dedicated to Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga. During your six-night stay, the classes will delve into a daily focus on a specific chakra. Starting and ending each day, you’ll engage in various practices, spanning yoga, healing sound baths, meditation, and mindfulness. Why the emphasis on chakras? These energy points in your body are like spinning disks that, when kept open and aligned, contribute to your emotional and physical well-being. Suzy’s approach blends yoga and holistic practices for a balanced experience. Beyond the routines, these retreats are designed to foster presence. Suzy’s intention is for you to return home tuned in, carrying a heart full of meaningful memories. Prepare for a week of balance, mindfulness, and genuine moments.

Discover Suzy’s itinerary.
To suit this holistic focus at ÀNI Anguilla, we will offer a bespoke wellness menu and a selection of revitalizing juices and mocktails, alongside our usual gourmet all-inclusive dining. There will also be ample time on each retreat to enjoy all of our other luxury inclusions: all meals, served in unique settings, soft drinks and free-flowing premium wines and spirits, non-motorised watersports, one beach barbecue per stay, butler service, exciting local excursions, cultural activities, cookery classes, mixology sessions, a sunset cruise and much more.

Year-round wellness incentives
Be calmed by majestic nature at our beautifully located resort, embraced by the island’s green-and-gold scenery. Indulge in up to six daily spa treatments per person, with a range of massages (holistic, deep-tissue, head and foot) to choose from. Take part in tennis lessons and hitting sessions with Denny, our on-site tennis pro, or take the hint from the azure waves and spend a hazy day on the ocean, enjoying complimentary non-motorised watersports.

For Michelin-starred dining:
ÀNI Sri Lanka

We are thrilled to reveal our upcoming culinary partnership with Sri Lankan chef Rishi Naleendra, of two-Michelin-starred restaurant Cloudstreet in Singapore. Born in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Rishi trained at the renowned William Angliss Institute in Melbourne, Australia.  Like him, his food is an eclectic mix of cultures and influences that cannot be put in a box. He is Sri Lankan, but he has never cooked his home country’s cuisine in the conventional way.  When asked about his cuisine he replied “When people ask me what I cook, it was so hard for me to explain what it is, because it’s not French, it’s not Italian.”  Rishi is perhaps best known for blending his Sri Lankan cultural heritage with Australian influences, and is respected for his bold, inventive culinary creations.
During the month of May, experience his gastronomic wonders for yourself at ÀNI Sri Lanka, with one lunch and one dinner cooked and prepared by Rishi himself during your stay.

Year-round culinary incentives
Discover the incredible flavors and diversity of Sri Lankan cuisine with our expert chef, Cyril Human. Savor an array of curries and traditional treats, join cookery classes and tastings, and enjoy an Ayurvedic feast served in a colonial-era doctor’s house.

For Caribbean rhythms:
ÀNI Dominican Republic

Calling all music lovers! During May, we will host our own Caribbean Rhythms Showcase: a month-long celebration of the diverse sounds and beats that define the Caribbean. From salsa and merengue to compas, reggae, bachata, jazz and more, be immersed in captivating music, performed by established and upcoming Caribbean artists.

We will host live bands, who will perform music from different Caribbean genres on alternate nights or according to guests’ preferences. Performances will take place during sunset or after dinner. Guests can interact with the bands and even have a go at playing some of the instruments if they wish. We will also collaborate with local music schools, institutions and artists to enhance the experience. Music lessons can be arranged for interested guests (an additional fee may apply). To get your feet tapping, here are a few pointers on some of the genres in store…

Caribbean jazz seamlessly fuses traditional jazz elements with rhythmic influences from the region. With its pulsating rhythms, Caribbean reggae has transcended borders and become a global phenomenon. Bachata is characterized by its soulful guitar melodies and romantic themes. Dance to the irresistible rhythms of salsa and merengue, two genres that embody the lively spirit of the Caribbean. Embark on a rhythmic journey with the soulful sounds of compas (aka kompa), a genre born in Haiti that blends elements of jazz, funk and Latin music. Indulge in the romantic and sensual melodies of zouk. Originating from the French Caribbean islands, zouk is characterized by its smooth tempo and themes of love and passion.
