Overview

Set in manicured gardens with breathtaking, 270-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean and direct access to the sand-fringed bay known as La Piscina Natural, the resort can accommodate up to 28 guests across eight Ocean View Suites, two Bay View Suites, two Ocean View Junior Suites, and two Garden View Junior Suites. These are positioned on either side of the property’s palm-lined, central avenue as part of Villa Larimar with its sunrise vistas, and west-facing Villa Amber with its additional manmade beach and cobbled path to the sea.

Named for the region’s precious gemstones, the villas offer elevated, oceanside living with a sleek Tropical Contemporary aesthetic. Both overlook expansive infinity pools, and each boasts a poolside Living Pavilion with spacious dining spaces inside and out, an elegant lounge, convivial bar, games and entertainment areas, and a terrace with mesmerizing sea views.

Featuring spacious bedrooms and open-plan bathrooms with vaulted pine ceilings, coconut wood details, and a soothing palette of white, neutral, and sea-hued soft furnishings, the suites all open onto private terraces and/or garden courtyards. Six of the eight Ocean View Suites (two Amber and four Larimar) are completely free-standing, while the remaining suites are housed in two double-story structures. Each of these includes an Ocean View Suite and two Junior Suites (named Ocean or Garden depending on their views) downstairs, along with a shared living room and kitchenette. Upstairs, each double-story structure offers a Bay View Suite.

 A self-contained world, Àni provides every facility and service a group of guests could possibly desire during their stay. The gracious Arrival Pavilion is mirrored by an oceanside Events Pavilion; the air-conditioned Wellness Center houses a fully equipped gym and a serene spa with two en-suite treatment rooms; and a children’s swimming pool and waterslide rest beside the tennis court. A stay at Àni is all-inclusive, and the resort’s discreet and dedicated team of over 30 staff is available around the clock to tailor every detail – from special dining, cultural, and wellness moments, to kids’ activities and exploration of the region – to ensure a bespoke experience that defies expectations.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served each day in different settings across the resort, with every menu tailored according to guest preferences to surprise and delight. Free-flowing beverages including juices, premium spirits, cocktails, and wines can be enjoyed whenever a guest desires. Up to 12 spa treatments per day are included, as well as tennis lessons, guided cycling tours, movies by moonlight, cooking classes, cigar rolling lessons, rum tastings, non-motorized watersports, and more. Complimentary roundtrip airport transfers make traveling to Àni a breeze, and up to eight hours of complimentary babysitting and a daily children’s activity program keeps kids entertained. Beyond Àni’s comprehensive inclusions, the expert local team can arrange any possible experience offered along the Dominican Republic’s north coast and inland, ensuring that transportation is booked, and costs are clear.
