Best place to enjoy your honeymoon! All staff are very kind and friendly, they treat you like royalty, the restaurants are great and the rooms are fantastic. The weather is excellent, can rain for couple of minutes but you should't worry about it.

Anantara Veli is a fun, well-maintained, and service-oriented resort. The “house reef” is teaming with marine life, and if you stay for more than a few days, you’re likely to encounter black-tipped sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, and all sorts of colorful fish. While sporting high-touch service, it does fall short of the ultra-luxury status that say, a Four Seasons, likely... More

We had an amazing time while in paradise. Location is superb, surrounded by turquoise waters and white sand beaches. Staff were incredebily kind and attentive, especially Mahir, who took care of everything during our stay. If we can, we will definetely come back! 10/10 experience!
