The food
The Ani Villas Sri Lanka foodservice team, lead by our executive Chef Cyril, delivers a world-class gourmet dining experience. Chef Cyril is a Sri Lankan cuisine expert having previously worked in the Maldives and at Aman Resorts. In addition to fantastic local dishes he has extensive experience with international fare, fusion, and Western cuisine.

The cuisine of Sri Lanka has been influenced by many cultures over the centuries: local spice producers, Indian neighbors, traders from across the Indian Ocean basin, and even former colonial powers. Hearty meals with aromatic curries, flavorful chutneys, and fresh ingredients are common, always followed by a local sweet.

Meals are served in any of the estate’s spectacular dining venues. The main open dining structures enjoy spectacular views from their perches above the beach. Cafés and instructional kitchens allow guests to learn from the chef and gain insight into Sri Lankan culinary technique.

A selection of optional fun, adventurous and relaxing activities are available throughout the week including cooking classes, add-on excursions, beach time, and more.
How to get there:

Sri Lanka is known for its warm people and eclectic cuisine, as well as its remarkable coastline and historic attractions. 

Colombo is easily accessible from major Asian and European cities, and transfer to the Ani Villas estate is by private seaplane or chauffeur.
