The Unique Tourism Collection has been appointed Australian representative for Àni Villas, a collection of beautiful villas in exotic locations in Anguilla, Thailand and Sri Lanka.

The Sydney-based travel and tourism marketing and communication specialist will be responsible for all sales, marketing and media activity in Australia for Àni Villas working closely with industry partners and media in driving leisure, incentives and weddings to the property.

Àni Villas opened its first property in Anguilla, in the Caribbean, West Indies in October 2010 and is scheduled to unveil new villa destinations in Thailand and Sri Lanka in June 2015 and in the Dominican Republic in 2017.

Àni Villas presents a totally private destination experience with guests having exclusive occupancy of the beautifully-appointed villas at each of the locations.

“We aim to have our guests leave the everyday world and their worries behind – letting our team help shape memorable escapes of relaxation and adventure and introduce the best our destinations have to offer – be it local beaches, cuisine, culture, sports or other activities,” said Àni Villas Chief Executive Officer, Ira Bloom.

“Our locations are chosen for their idyllic, exotic natural beauty, as well as for the role that the accompanying Ani Art Academies can have on the surrounding communities.”

Ani Art Academies is a global non-profit organisation supported by the Tim Reynolds Foundation, funded by Àni Villas owner, Tim Reynolds. The academies use an intensive multi-year curriculum, developed by master painter Anthony J. Waichulis, to provide oil-painting and drawing instruction to dedicated up-and-coming local artists. The villas provide a venue to expose the artists' work to guests and other people holidaying in the regions.

Àni Villas destinations offer a full service team including concierge, butler, chef, housekeepers and security. Rates are inclusive of breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, spirits, house wines, soft drinks, juices, daily snacks, cocktail service and mini bar. Complimentary activities also include cooking classes, daily children's activity program, laundry, international phone calls, high-speed WiFi and unlimited movie and music streaming plus other inclusive special options at each location.
