Àni Dominican Republic


Private island paradise


Beachfront tropical garden





On its own peninsula, Àni Dominican Republic is your private villa paradise. It’s an unrivaled spot for an intimate gathering with your nearest and dearest, ideal for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration or just some sun-drenched snoozing on the sand. Carved out of the Dominican coastline, the estate’s two acres feel like another world: this is the sort of spot where you and your clan can forget everything but each other and the exquisite surroundings. Each villa is designed to integrate nature and style – life here is all glass walls, outdoor showers and freestanding baths with gaze-worthy views. And if you do manage to drag yourself from the tub, there’s plenty to keep you busy: water sports, beaches, three pools – one of which is especially for little Smiths, complete with waterslide – tennis and shuffleboard courts, spa…
