In trying to select a hotel/location for our Babymoon and first Maldives visit, we scrutinized countless beautiful resorts across endless atolls and islands and were immediately lost amidst so many luxurious options. The pressure was on, this was the Maldives, the legend of perfect, and we might never come back! Thankfully, with great relief, the Anantara Veli was the perfect...

Wow. Just wow. First of all, I want to start out by mentioning that this review may be lengthy but its worth the read. I also want to preface by saying that we are from USA (Texas), which is a very long way from the Maldives - it took us two days to get there, two days to return. Having...

It has been our first time in the Maldives, with our couple of best friends, from Portugal, a country with the best beaches / sea in the World; we are astonished with the Maldives (a paradise on Earth) and with Anantara´s quality; ambiance, facilities, staff made us the four Maldiva's best fans! The only negative remark is the price of...

I stayed in both Dhigu and Veli. Since Veli is adult only resort, it is smaller island with ocean view and beach experience. I love the snorkeling experience where i saw fishes and coral just below the overwater bungalow that I stayed. The most value for money dinner is Origami Teppanyaki which I would recommend to everyone to try (reservation...

My wife and I went for our belated honeymoon. This could not have been a better experience. I'll just bullet out our feedback because no one likes a wall of text. No particular order: -The staff is amazing. Incredibly attentive. They made an effort to really get to know us. We were quickly on a first name basis with much...

Where do I start! Our time at Anantara Veli has been the best vacation my husband and I have ever taken to date. And it is not only because the Maldives are majestically beautiful, it was because the Anantara employees went above and beyond to make our stay not only special, but one we will remember for a lifetime and...

After our week stay in Sri Lanka, my wife and I opted to visit the Maldives – We had always wanted to visit there and it was on our bucket list. After finding out it was only an hour flight from Sri Lanka we were never going to pass up this opportunity to visit this exquisite destination! We decided to...

From the different shades of green/blue of the water, the snorkelling, the random stingray that just passed by our overwater bungalow to the amazing restaurants, Anantara was exactly what was needed at the end of a busy year. The staff were so attentive and happy, the place itself was breathtakingly beautiful and we didn't want to get out of the...

Not many activities available to keep you busy to burn through 5 nights of Maldives. We could only sunbathe and snorkel for so long before you get bored. The restaurants were over priced excessively and there wasn't much variety, i.e. everywhere we went was a $150US Per Person buffet style dinner.
