We went here as a late honeymoon. It didn't seem to be too crowded on the Veli side. Really glad we chose this side over Dhigu. Dhigu was great for day use but the sound of kids is everywhere and it's nice to escape back to a quieter area. We got a deluxe over the water bungalow (172) and we... More

The place is fantastic. Its breathtaking but the food prices and spa prices are so high. I ended up paying almost 60% more of what already paid through booking.com, on food and spa. This 60% could have been 160%, but we were only having 2 meals per day, breakfast and dinner. Knowing that you will pay $250-$300 for two people... More

We stayed at Anantara Veli from 1/18 - 1/23. The resort is very couple friendly, and very quiet. You do not see many other visitors often except during breakfast. The island is very laid back and clean. Restaurant choice was plenty to choose from, but they are pricey. Thai food is the one I liked the most. Moreover, you are... More
