ÀNI Private Resorts Prioritises Accessibility

The world’s first private resort collection, ÀNI Private Resorts, provides exclusive holidays in the most beautiful and far-flung corners of the earth, across a portfolio of four luxurious properties that emphasise accessibility.

ÀNI’s resorts – situated in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Anguilla, and the Dominican Republic – are wheelchair accessible, and offer a selection of at least one or two accessible rooms with flat floors and slopes, and standalone bathtubs with wide borders. Each resort is also equipped with a pool lift for getting in and out of the water, available on request.

ÀNI Private Resorts spokesperson, Henny Frazer, said: “Every guest is welcome at ÀNI, and those using wheelchairs will find design elements to ensure ease of movement and comprehensive access to all facilities and areas. Any ÀNI space that isn’t fully accessible by default can be made so with modifications, such as added ramps.”

“The owner of ÀNI Private Resorts, philanthropist and arts patron, Tim Reynolds is a paraplegic and has been heavily involved in the design of all ÀNI resorts so that all are fully wheelchair accessible while ensuring that the luxury aesthetic is never compromised,” Henny explained. “We always think how we can make each guest experience joyful, so the design of each resort has always been through our owners’ eyes.”

At ÀNI Thailand, guests will find ramps throughout the resort, an elevator from the arrival pavilion to the guestrooms, pool, and dining areas, a second elevator that connects them to the spa, waterslide and meditation area, and strategic slopes and bathroom handrails in one of the Ocean Villas.

ÀNI Sri Lanka features sloping pathways throughout the resort and around Villa Divia and Villa Monara, an elevator in Villa Monara connects the library to the bar lounge, and bathroom handrails in suites, as required.
