Best choice for us!

Food and Location
I came to Veli for honeymoon with my husband and it has become our best experience so far. Ms.Kim and Mr.Prashirt are very helpful during our stay. Room boy Jaxlaan is very nice in keeping our room clean everyday. An Indonesian woman in 73 degrees and an Indonesian man in the kitchen of 73 degrees are very nice too, they served us really well and always make us smile every morning we saw them. ALmost all the staffs there are very nice, greeting and keep smile everytime they see us. We feel honoured when some even remember our names. We asked for room #165 and it is just perfect. We can see Moyo Island from our room and we can swim to reach it just in 10-15mins. We can also go to Anantara Dhigu, another hotel by the same company, by pontoon. So convenient. Oh! We also see baby sharks two times in the water near the beach in Veli. Origami, japanese restaurant in Veli, is one of the restaurants you have to try!! We went there two times because it is so delicious. The prawn sushi roll is the bomb. Beef is very tender too and the local fish has no fishy smell. So fresh and yum! Thank you Anantara Veli for making our honeymoon so memorable. Hope I will come back soon.

A resort worth to visit in Maldives

Very well maintain/ Beautiful scenary and wanderful staffs
We had a 4 night stays and I must agree that the stay was fantastic. The resort is very well maintain and you may visit another resort Dhigu via speedboat every 5-10 minutes intervals. Really appreciated the staffs on their excellent services. Warm smiles and very attentive (Ms Jolly). The speedboat/ parasailing and snorkling staffs were very friendly and responsive. I will have given a close to full marks if not for a staff (Bilal) bad services every morning when I see him during breakfast (he's the chef in the kitchen). Looking down on Chinese and giving me a stucked up face everyday but his attitude totally changed whenever he saw a Caucasion, smiling big and friendly (too obvious). It will be a wonderful breakfast for me if I hadn't met him every morning. (FYI, this is the first time I am complaining over services, imagine how bad it was as I sweared it really did affect my trip). Nevertheless, everything was great. Everything including the equipments were very clean and well maintain. Sea sports was wonderful. The room was clean and aircon was working very well. The sun/ the beach/ the hermit crabs were so welcoming. I love this place. Mosquitos near the outdoor breakfast area were rather aggressive. However, it's not the issue from the resort as they did their part by fogging everyday. It's unavoidable due to the weather and nature. Keep up the good work Anantara Veli!!!

Spectacular view!!

Too much to remember
Me and wife decided to go to maldives for our honeymoon. We went for anantara because of the very attractive offer at the time. Well, we got way more than what we paid for!! Upon arrival, we were transported to the resort with a luxurious yacht. When we arrived on the resort, oh my ... We made the right decision to choose this establishment. Spectacular view was an understatement! We watched sunset on out balcony. On one fine afternoon, we saw a school of dolphines playing and jumping around 100 meters away from where we sat. we snorkled from our villa balcony all the way to the other reasort 200 meters across. The only disapointing moments were when we asked for a beach towel, it came 3.5 hours later after we called asking for it the second time. In all, thank you anantara veli resort for making our honeymoon very memorable

Great resort that cater also for the kid

beach, staff and kid programs
We stayed 2 nights only here at the Anantara Dhigu as we only found out after booking that the Veli does not cater for kids but it is very different from the other resort we stayed previously as Anantara Dhigu is truly for the parents and kids as they have all day programs to keep the kids busy while mum and dad could enjoy the resort better.

Worth for couple for stay

sunset , friendliness staff and privacy
It was a perfect stay in Anantara Veli Resort & Spa for our birthday treat .Firstly we were panic because of the late night flight and arrived to the airport late at night, but when we see the hotel guys just stand in front of the exit of immigration to welcome you then bring you to the private boat heading to the hotel. 35mins drive is easy and fast, but it was quite costly USD$400 for this boat arrangement. After we settle down , hotel bring the wine and cake because it was my birthday , quite surprised. Room is OK for cleanliness but our room is toward the beach, firstly think it is not quite privacy but later we find that it is quite good as it just got coral reef right down our over water bungalows, it is amazing to see fishes and coral just down from your rooms. The pingoon travel to another anantara hotel is easy and just a minute , you can enjoy the amazing sunset dinner over the pool with life music . but there is more family and group travelers on the others side of hotel, maybe a bit noisy if you just want a quite honeymoon with your honey. Breakfast is perfect, many choice and even this have gluten free milk and almond and soy milk. Thai food is good too . WIFI is perfect everywhere in the hotel and beach , bars and pool. it is quite a good experience of spending 5 days in the same hotel and didn't few boring. good choice !
