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 !

everything is excellent
Marvellous!! Fantastic!!! Staff performance is excellent! Definitely should go for deluxe Water bungalow.. our trip was relax to the maximum. Thumbs up Anantara team! Besides, our photographer Eugene is so professional and we love our photos so much. One cons is the food probably not Asian taste. Too salty. Shall improve or try out something new.

My third visit

Quality, service and spa
This is my third visit to Anantara. In the past two visits i stayed in Veli and this was the first time for me in dhigu. In fact there is a big difference in the way the staff welcome people in the two sides. I noticed the staff in dhigu are less flexible and experienced. Other than that It was a nice stay.

5 Star Experience

Good Environment (beautiful sea), Staff is very nice, Food is good
Very good Honeymoon experience. Staff is very nice, every staff will say hello, good morning etc when meet you. The food is better than our expectation as we see many comment that the food is not good in Maldives. We tried the Thai Restaurant and the Buffet, the taste is very good.
