We have just returned from a week at Anantaras Veli resort. We had heard that the Maldives were beautiful , but on Veli at least , it is really a true paradise. The pictures you see of this island are really just as it is, unbelievably beautiful and peaceful. The sea is an unbelievable blue colour and so clear and... More

We just came back from spending 4 nights at The Anatara Veli. When we arrived we were upgraded to a Deluxe Over Water Bungalow due to our travel agent's relationship with the management. Our agent Tom Vargese of TravelTom told us it would be a magnificent experince and it exceeded our expectations. The beautiful resort is like a piece of... More

My wife and I came here on our Honeymoon from the US and was just blown away by the experience. The food, spas, services and friendliness of the staff was just so above my expectation that a few weeks after we have left I am still in awe. Every restaurant was fantastic but the best part of the day was... More

The place itself is magical, we have a hut on the waters. Everything is what we expected. Hotel staff are friendly. However there were a few minor things that needs improvement. e.g. shower gel bottle was not refilled automatically, there was a broken bottle of body lotion when we arrived, it was never replaced or removed. Bath mat with blood... More

We have just returned from Anantara Veli in the Maldives and we are already missing looking out the glass doors of our room in the morning to Paradise. The amazing hues of the ocean where like precious stones of Topaz, Aqua Marine, and Green & Blue Sapphires. We often awoke to see an array of Tropical Fish or Manta Rays... More

Unbelievable... We spent 8 nights there, and we didn't want to leave. Simply "Perfect"... Comfortable bungalows, lots of water sports, wide variety of restaurants and last but not least highly professional customer oriented staff...

I satisfied with the servie and hospitality of the people here. As i've visited most of the countries in the world, this place is one of the best. Surely high price for staying but worth of money. Will back again soon. Recommended staying in overwater bungalow, eating at ban huira, compliment free kayaking and snorkling devices.
