When the founder of this resort turned to his staff to solicit suggestions on what to name it, he settled on 'Anantara', the Sanskrit word for "endless waters". And it's not a surprise why he did - when you're on the island, you'll be treated to a breathtaking horizon-to-horizon view of the Indian Ocean stretched out before you under a... More

From the moment we got off the plane i was immediately welcomed with exceptional service.

I had the luxury of spending 3 nights at this resort in August and am absolutely thrilled and mesmerized. Upon getting our rooms, we walked the board walk path down. The board walkways cannot fit buggy so if walking under the scorching sun and against howling winds isn't good for you, then choose the villas nearer to the island. The... More
