My romantic honeymoon started in Anantara Veli with a welcome greetings of the staff playing drum and national dance. We were living in a bungalow with the own swimming pool. Our room was magnificent. Bath with a view to the Indian Ocean - this is something amazing. Every day a room boy was cleaning our bed creating swans from towel,... More

We stayed at Anantara Veli for 10 nights in a Deluxe Overwater Bungalow (Bungalow 175). We had done some research & combined with the fact that it was our honeymoon, we had high expectations! Veli exceeded those expectations & more... Arriving at Male...you are blown away by the colour of the water of the Maldives & you still are when... More

Impeccable. Immaculate. 5* star at its own galaxy! Having travelled across the world quite extensively, I've been to the very best of hotels. Being a service provider myself with a world class international carrier, I have to say, Anantara's service is just beyond perfect!

A brilliant resort offering many facilities, excellent service and access to its neibouring Island for restaurants and activities. Staff were attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The snorkelling right at your doorstep is fantastic - so many colourful fish, stingrays & black top reef sharks.

I was looking for a location to relax and this was just perfect for this. Definitely designed for the honeymooners but still great for those who are not on a honeymoon. We had 5 nights in an over water Bungalow, just amazing. I would sit and watch the fish having an early morning coffee. Customer service ++++

Absolutely love this resort! Had a great 4 nights stay at both the Overwater Bungalow and Deluxe Overwater Bungalow, def recommend the former for snorkeling (more fishes) and the latter for privacy! Breakfast spread was decent too with a wide selection of pastries, cold cuts and hot food. Everything is just so picturesque at Veli, I'd recommend this place anytime... More

We went on our honeymoon and stayed at Veli for 10 days. It was the best trip of our lives and will certainly remain so. Words cant describe this place. Pictures cant do it justice.
