Since the first day i chose Anantara resort I will absolute warm and safe. Firstly, their 24hrs live chat will always respond on time. While reaching the resort the team manage to gave us a very warm welcome. Through out our entire stay everything was a blessed , Specially thank to mr Mughni for all the help and guide us thru. I really enjoying my stay as the resort has 3 connecting island where guest can access all the three. The service is top notch. Bt breakfast can be improved.

              Like all other nice 5-star resort, it's a very nice resort, service is good. You can spend a couple of days relaxing there, but you will get bored if stay too long unless you don't any budget to spend on pricey food and water activities.

              Perfect birthday getaway -Anantara Veli is paradise. ”
              We stayed at Deluxe Overwater Villa. It was well kept by our very efficient room boy Ismail. Under the villa there were small fishes living around the corals by the posts. There were big fishes of beautiful colours, super big stingray, a turtle and baby shark that swam around too. We were provided by our own set of snorkelling gear for the duration of our stay. Food on the other hand was just as awesome. Breakfast buffet spread was enormous. Twice we ate at the Japanese resto Origami for dinner, yum! Small issue was when I ordered prawn tempura for room service, they brought a different prawn dish, the batter was way too oily and instead of mirin sauce, they gave wasabi mayo. I called again to ask for tempura sauce, sweet chili sauce was delivered. Maybe the telephone operator was new as even inquired about photo shoot and she was not aware of it. Nevertheless, front office staff were very accommodating and even gave us a spare room to use when we asked for late check out.

              YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH ANANTARA VELI”
              My wife and I decided to go to Maldives to celebrate our third year wedding anniversary as well as our birthdays. Booking for a resort in Maldives is not easy as there are almost 200 resorts available. We are glad we chose Anantara Veli and definitely, we will go back to this resort when we visit Maldives again. Anantara Veli is just one of the high-end, private yet reasonably-priced resorts of Anantara group. Veli is recommended for couples young and old as the resort is packaged for people who want to go for a honeymoon. For travellers with kids. the nearby Anantara Dhigu is the place to book since many kid-friendly facilities are housed there. Going back to Veli, there are options if you prefer a villa on the beach or villa over water. To get the Maldive experience, we chose to stay on the decently-sized villa over water; complete with a very big bed, a lounge sofa, a sun daybed, a big master toilet with rainshower and tub. Anything that you would need in a hotel is in Veli -- and everything is posh! The included breakfast buffet is superb! No complaints, as there are many to choose from. And if you get tired of eating at the same restaurant in the morning, you can opt to go to the nearby Dhigu and have your breakfast there. There are Japanese, Western, Thai themed restaurants as well for lunch and dinner. The prices are a bit on the high side, but overall dining experience is always great. The room service menu choices are varied and reasonably priced as well. The staff are very attentive and personal. They can arrange anything for you, and you can sense the sincerity in all their actions. The best trait for any service personnel. This you can feel from the waitstaff to the manager. Another reason why we chose this resort is because of the ease of travel from Male. You just need to ride their in-house very fast speedboats which will bring you to the resort in 35-40 minutes from Male. Definitely, the Maldivian experience is not overhyped with Anantara

              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.

              Huge lagoon, luxurious room and nice food
              Anantara Veli is very luxurious and we felt very pampered from the moment we set foot on the airport til we leave the island. The hotel staff at the airport was very efficient and friendly and it did drive up our expectation for the resort. We stayed in the deluxe overwater bungalow which was huge and the view from its balcony was amazing. The bed is the best I have ever slept on in any hotel. There was a big bathtub facing the ocean and again the view was spectacular. The buffet breakfast offered a large variety of drinks and food. They even offered gluten free bread and lactose free milk which I never expected. We did some nice snorkeling there and could tell that the hotel made an effort to protect the coral reef. This island is well worth every penny spent.

              We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anantara Veli. The rooms , built on stilts over the ocean were lavish and comfortable, with breathtaking views of the Indian ocean, and beautiful sea creatures swimming around. The service was impeccable. The staff was one of the most professional and friendly hotel staffs I've encountered. The food options were great. Even though we were vegetarian the restaurant chefs never let us feel we were missing anything. They were happy to tailor meals as per our preferences and came up with really delicious preparations! The hotel does charge top dollar, but we feel it is worth every cent. We want to come back again !

              Had a deluxe over water bungalow 177. This was the best part. The rooms look better than the Internet. Such a luxury to chill out or take a swim when ever you want. The snorkling is good too with plenty of fish to check out. Make sure you snorkel the house reef too. The island there is nice to hang out on. Make sure you buy a disposable underwater camera before you leave home.

              Bungalow, Staff and house reef
              Wow this holiday was a once in a lifetime - unless we win lotto. Option for my 50th was to upgrade the car or take this holiday. I am glad I chose the holiday. Staff are amazing so we spent about $250 on tips at $5 a throw. Don't forget to go to the house reef for a snorkel. Breakfast is amazing. Food was good in some restaurants and disappointing in others. I knew it was going to be expensive but it could have been better than pub food for the price. But we came in under the budget. Heads up: - tip the staff they are lovely. - go the delux over water bungalow 173 to 179 - there is plenty of free bottled water inc pool and gym - bring lots of snacks Thanks Anantara Veli for a truly wonderful experience.

              We enjoyed the stay in our villa very much
              The pick up from the Airport worked out well (what you would expect consierung the pick up Service fee). Arrival at the Hotel Islands was already a wonderful experience. Due to the fact that the two Islands belong together and that you can use all facilities there are plenty of things to do. Scuba diving (two days) was great. there is a lot to explore under water exspecially if you are no a pro. We tested all Restaurants and all were good, but Keep in mind that Service incl. Food or Spa are expensive on the Maledives. dinner between 80 - 100 Euro for two.

              Good service and huge room”
              Relatively quiet, nice room
              i booked water bungalow at anantara veli two week before our travel, and it was an last minute deal. on our arrival, we were told that they upgrade us to the water villa at anantara dhigu, which is more expensive with larger room. it's really a big surprise to us, and the water villa at anantara dhigu was amazing. during our stay on the island, we were spoiled with great service and nice food. i like the kayake which is two hours free for guests, and my husband and i did it twice. by kayaking, we can reach to a small island that is close to the water villa, and it is a very good place for snorkelling. at that island, we saw a lot of beautiful fishes and coral underwater and took many nice pictures. thanks anantara for brining us such a wonderful trip and memory in maldives!
