      Paradise on earth ”

      What a wonderful stay at Anantara Dhigu. We were welcomed by group of staffs who sing the local song. The room i booked is anantara over water pool suite with private pool and direct access to the sea. The sand on the whole island are crystal clear and very clean . The room is so spacious and i really love the bath tub with amazing view on that window. Special thanks to Mr Mohammad, the head of our villa , who is very friendly and helpful. Dont forget to try the spa, as you has direct view to the ocean (special thanks to Miss Iris who provides super nice massage) . The room is cleaned twice a day (special thanks to Mr Shahih who keep our room so clean and neat). Definitely will come back to Anantara Dhigu and i am sure gonna stay longer 👍🏻

      The resort is connected with Anantara Veli Resort by using the boat with free of charge. You could visit both resorts even you just pay for 1. I recommend the Anantara Dihgu more than Anantara Veli. It was a good choice.

      Hi We had fabulous stay. We arrived at 12am on island. The transfer from airport to hotel was exceptional. As we arrived late the guest services advices that we would get tour of island welcome info following morning. Which never really happened. At breakfast some staff were moody that morning too. They stuffed up our dinner reservation and left my husband stand and wait for table setting for 20mins. I asked for another waiter and he was attentive. Logu was kind enough to accomodate our meal requests every morning. His level of service was amazing including fayyas. My son loved the kids club all staff were amazing. We wish pool area had some music during pool activities for kids it would change the atmosphere . Otherwise in all was fab stay it was really good room service , clean kids friendly resort.

      We love the place. Very nice and spacious rooms. The view is breathtaking. Crystal clear water. The overwater pool suite is highly recommended and is facing the sunset. Majority of the staff is polite and friendly. But there are a couple of staff that are not. Food is good. What’s best is they have 3 complementary meals from the kids menu for our kids every meal. Very family friendly resort. The kids club is ok but i think it is not well maintained. Special mention to the staff named Kim, she is really nice and friendly and also the Filipina lady from the kids club is super nice.

      Great getaway with my toddler”

      Staff at the reception are helpful & informative. It was a wonderful stay except the sand isn't fine sand & prices are quite steep for just a beach villa. But I must say that the villa is spacious - both bedroom & bathroom. A lot of broken down corals & shells near the shore and in seabed that could potentially cut feet. Be sure to bring booties for yourself and your kids! I hired nanny Thess to look after my child while we went for a snorkel and she was excellent with my kid! Our chinese lady snorkel guide was very helpful throughout the paid trip. Housekeeper should put on more ready smiles. We were without toothbrush for 3 nights as their supply of toothbrush were not in yet!! Thank god i had 1 toothbrush stashed somewhere in luggage! Never did expected this from a 5 star resort! I really appreciate that the speedboat did provide my toddler with a life jacket when we were travelling back to Male. Breakfast spread was not too bad and there are selections for vegetarians/ vegans.

      Excellent service, very clean room, nice beaches

      My wife and I stayed for 4 nights in the over-water villa for our honeymoon and we were really impressed by the service. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Our rooms were made up every time we left. There were plenty of things to do like water activities (snorkelling, kayaking) at the in-house Aquafanatics, table tennis, badminton and also the well-equipped gym. Food was nice and there was a lot of variety to choose from. The beach which is literally at your doorstep and the water were amazing, like straight out of a postcard. One tiny gripe was the poor internet connectivity in the villas (relatively fast but keeps getting disconnected). But then again, that's not what you're there for.

      easy access to the beach, friendly staffs, very nice room

      A great experience to stay at Anantara Dhigu, the room is perfect, their staffs are very helpful, and the most important thing for me is the room just a step to the beach. Daily breakfast a little bit boring (same menu everyday) and there's just a few choices for restaurants / cafe, my only recommendation is Thai cuisine (must be reserved and using a boat to get there).

Spent my day on the balcony. Luckily no rain at all during my stay. Breakfast is average, but Thai food at Basn Hurraa restaurant is a must try.

      In a word - Amazing...”

      the sunset over-the-water villas are worth every single penny, staff are terrific, be ready to relax within an hour of arriving....

      my husband and i went to anatara dhigu for our 7th anniversary. we stayed 4 nights in a sunset over-the-water villa and it was the most perfect vacation we have ever enjoyed. we enjoyed our time at dhigu more than we have enjoyed any other vacation (and believe me - we've had a few). the views were unparalleled, the staff was courteous and helpful, the food was amazing, and the service was professional, friendly and exceptional in every instance. yes, the rooms are expensive but since we had everything we wanted in our villa with private deck, instant access to the amazing water and ocean and sunset views that still leave me smiling, we rarely felt the need to leave the comfort of our room. if you average out how much we spent by the amount of time we actually spent in the room, it actually works out cheaper than other hotels where we've stayed! plus, with the amazing staff at the anantara, i was in my relaxing zone within 90 minutes- as opposed to a typical 1-3 days to be able to start unwinding. seriously. this one will go down in our family albums as the vacation of our lifetimes. eager to get back here.

      excellent location. Overwater bungalows are fantastic, with great deck and lots of space inside. Water of the lagoon all around is amazing. Cool furniture and architecture of the resort.
      personnel sometimes slow to fulfill requests and tend to forget them too. Not too precise and not entirely reliable. Would improve the offer of the restaurant. more fish and see food options.

      Overall it has been a great experience. The resort is fantastic and the sunrise overwater bungalow was amazing: great terrace, great privacy. The best bit has been waking up at 6 am and jump into the sea from the terrace. Amazing bathtub ending at the edge of the bungalow. Can take a bath and look down to the lagoon underneath. We went in august, low season, but weather was good too. Definitely highly recommended. Would improve a little on the dining area, with more options as far ad seafood is concerned.

      Second time to stay in Anantara group resort. Have two nights wonderful vacation. But when we arranged the transfer from Maafushi to the nearby resort, there's no staff to welcome us even I have in advance sended the e-mail to inform the arriving time. Hope there will be a good booking system reminding for the resort staff to prepare for guests's check-in. Anyway, we enjoy spending our time to stay in the sunset beach villa. There are many beautiful decorations and swings setting in the unforgettable crystal sea. Plenty of delicious dishes serving for breakfast in the morning.

      The arrival is just amazing the staff is so attentive and caring and we felt so well treated from the min we got off the boat. Bobir was so kind and just great at the finer details and we celebrated our anniversary and the special touches were amazing. We traveled with a 2yr and 6month old and even with the busy eas of two had such a relaxing time. Staff was amazing with our two year old and quickly learnt his name. Food is 5 star and make sure you go to the thai restaurant. We stayed in the sunset watervilla. It is just amaZing. I thought I was dreaming often. The beach villas are great too and the pictures does not actually do it justice. The island is just beautiful.
