Anantara Veli was the fifth of five resort in our trip, which is about 35 minutes by speedboat from Male airport. The welcome was warm from the airport until completion of the check-in. One of the most important resort characterization is the facilitator that assigned by the resort administration to facilitate your needs, a special cell phone was provided by... More

We recently spent a week at Anantara Veli in The Maldives and have not stopped talking about it since our return. The location is a paradise, the accommodation was fantastic and there were several restaurants all of which provided superb food. However, what made our experience so wonderful was the genuine warmth and friendliness of all who work there. Everybody... More

The Anantara was the second of two resorts on our trip and a bit bigger than the other so wasn't quite as personal. Being bigger had it's advantages though, the architecture and landscaping were pleasing to my design eye. The house reef is worth the visit and a mini-journey to get there. Also worth taking a boat between the islands... More

Anantara Veli was our best vacation as a couple, and we are blessed and fortunate to have spent our honeymoon there.

With this being our fourth trip to the maldives and the first two being huvafenfushi and taj exotica we had high expectations. A 45 minute in the airport for other guests didn't make a good start and the initial impressions when we arrived were that we had made a mistake and fallen back in to the tourist group resorts that...

My wife and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary at the Anantara Veli. This was our first time in the Maldives therefore we do not have another hotel we could use for comparison.

Not a great stay as compared to my other 5 stars resorts in Maldives. Overrated to be a 5 star resort. Just a business transaction to them nothing more nothing less. Other Maldivan resorts emphasis more on guests experience.
