We had a family holiday at Anantara Veli. The meet and greet at the airport is wonderful..you are taken to an airconditioned lounge and then to the boat. The speed boat ride from the airport to the resort and back is not for faint hearted..it is extremely frightening if the sea is choppy. Once you arrive at the resort the... More

There for our 30th anniversary it was so hard to leave after 8 nights! Whilst small and couples only it's linked to 2 other resorts so choice for dinner was abundant and great activity choices. The snorkelling was world class right next to the bungalows. So beautiful! Ali in 73Degrees looked after us so well, great to get to know... More

We wanted something special for our Diamond (Pearl) Wedding anniversary, quiet and romantic just for the two of us. We decided to go for another honeymoon since both our children were having their overseas university attachments. We chose Anantara Veli and stayed in the over water bungalow for 4 nights from 4th April 2014. Our flight and hotel bookings were... More

If you got a thought or a chance to be there, please don't hesitate and say yes! Pack your bag and say to yourself: Maldives, I am coming! When the plane was approaching the Male International Airport, it was my best ever landing with the superb landscape of my life. More importantly, I have to say that Anantara provides thoughtful...

We stayed in an over water bungalow here. It is so beautiful. The staff are mostly locals and they are very friendly and very helpful. The only downfall is that the food here is very expensive but very good quality. Still would recommend to do it at least once in your life.

A stunning resort: absolutely beautiful beaches, great walks around the islands. We also had a great time doing the activities available. The place can only get better if there were a little more options for lunch and evening dining as well as a lounge area for drinks. That said the food in the resort was great.

Amazing place. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Unless you are heavy drinker, the a la carte option is definitely better value than the all-inclusive. We stayed in an overwater villa. The top highlights of our trip were the live band beach dinner (they have it every saturday), the sunset fishing trip (you can have your catch cooked the... More
