This was our second stay with anantara in the Maldives and was such a dream! We travelled as a couple initially and came back as a family with two babies! From start to finish the service was exceptional. No was never answer! My son loved his daily buggy rides with Alam who was very kind! Chef Subodh was always on hand, every morning he would ask wether there was anything in particular we wanted to eat which really made the service feel so personal! He made kitchri for my daughter and she enjoyed it thoroughly, thank you so much and I can’t wait to come back!

This was 23rd country we visited and undoubtably the best vacation so far since it was not agenda driven. Anantara Dhigu made our stay extremely satisfied with 360 degree hospitality. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids and stayed in both beach villa and over-water villa. The staff at Anantara takes their job very seriously which includes the airport transfers, room boy, receptionist, guest services, waiters, buggy service boys, Chef....! They know your name, your preferences, your taste, and make all the efforts to ensure your stay is beyond expectations. We liked the location as it is just 30 mins transfer on a speedboat. The lagoons are widespread and you can literally cross the islands on foot during a low tide. You can spot sharks, sting rays, fishes, turtles from overwater villa during high-tides. Kids loved beach villa as they could run into the beach anytime of the day. But an experience of overwater villa is a must. I suggest to split it 3:1 or 3:2. Food is extremely tasty with Asian, Italian, Thai, Arabic, Indian cuisines. The check can also make dishes/drinks of your choice with 1-2 hours notice. We are vegetarian and still had a lot of choices in all the restaurants. There is plenty to do on the resort. The infinity pool is awesome and they also provide family bikes. You can do water sports....life jackets in the room and snorkelling gears are complimentary. They could not offer us late check-out due to high demand, but organised a complimentary guided tour in Male. Overall, we had a real 5 star experience and were taken care with utmost hospitality including room cleaning twice a day. I strongly recommend Anantara resorts even in my dreams. It might cost you a bit more, but the hospitality and memories will be worth the penny spent.

Maldives is on our GOTO list of places. I imagined a place of great beauty, blue calm waters, like paradise. But we got more than that. From the time we landed at Male airport until we left Male, the service provided by Anantara Dhigu resort was excellent. When we landed, a representative of the resort was there waiting for us. We were taken to the office at the airport to check in and then taken to our boat transfer. The boat ride took 30 minutes. At the resort, everything been prepared. We had chosen the sunset beach villa for 3 nights and sunrise overwater villa for 4 nights. The villas are just amazing. The beach villa has an outdoor shower and bath and indoor shower and toilet. The room is huge and has everything we need for the stay. There is an outdoor patio that looks out to the sea. We had a private access to the beach. There are many options for meals. Breakfast was included and it was a good breakfast spread. There were Japanese, Asian, western and Arabic options. Local dishes were also served. The chef, Subodh, was even ready to cook local rotis that we asked for. There is yoga every morning, conducted by Brij. He not only teaches us the moves, but explains on the benefits of each move and pose. As we were celebrating our anniversary they had a special dinner table set up for us on the beach. I must commend the staff at the resort. They are very friendly and willing to assist in every aspect of the holidays, from booking for activities or restaurants. The food served at the Thai restaurant and aqua Bar are excellent. Overall, we are very happy with the services at the resort. Highly recommended.

Just came back from a 4 day stay here. Second time in the Maldives but first time at this resort and it was a great getaway! We stayed in the sunset beach villa - it was a good size and good access to the beach - would prefer this over the sunrise villa as it has a better view. We liked the location - very quick 30 min by speedboat from the airport. We landed late at night so didn't get a chance to maximise time on the first night, would recommend trying to land earlier. Property is big with things to do like basketball / badminton / table tennis / gym areas so didn't feel like we'd run out of things to do. They offer bikes to get around the island - only downside of these is they're a bit hard to manoeuvre and they don't have brakes. Resort also runs boats between this, the sister resort and snorkel island (which is also accessible by foot during low tide), for some variety. Only slight disappointment was the water was quite rough at snorkel island so we didn't spend as much time as we would've liked snorkelling (nonetheless, fun way to spend a few hours); also not the picture-perfect coral / marine life at snorkel island so would recommend taking one of the excursions. Make sure to check the days the excursions operate - we would've liked to do more but neglected to time it properly. The staff were outstanding - all were very friendly and we felt like we were well looked after. Celebrated a birthday here and the small surprises were very thoughtful. Food at the restaurants was good - breakfast spread was superb, grill was fab and the Thai restaurant was great too. We'll be back!

Both my wife and I are people that enjoy the good things in life. At the Anantara resort the staff is doing everything to make this possible. We choose the Anantara and this was a very good choice. Small remarks are that the outside of the Over water villas needs a bit of renovation to look nicer. Further the island is very packed and the villas are in our opinion to close to each other as well as the now renovated Veli resort.

We had the most beautiful stay at Anantara Dhigu. We stayed for 9 nights and it still felt too soon when the time came to leave. The location was perfect, the villas clean and spacious but it was the staff that made our stay so exceptional. Everyone was friendly and attentive and we really felt welcomed from the moment we set foot on the island. We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to the entire F&B team. Executive Chef Philippe, who went out of his way to take care of us during our entire trip. Chef Subodh, who delighted us with the most delicious Indian specialties. Thank you Praveen, Preshan, Shammu, Mazin, and Pop for making every single one of our meals at the resort so enjoyable and something we looked forward to every day. We would also like to thank Brij for the best yoga session we've ever had! His talent and positive energy are truly one of a kind. I would also like to personally thank Travis and Erin from TropicSurf for the best surfing lessons I could ask for. This was definitely the highlight of my trip. Last but not least, would like to acknowledge our wonderful housekeeper, Rashad, for keeping our room clean and for surprising us each day with his creativity! We truly had the most wonderful time at Anantara and we cannot wait to come back in the future! Thank you everyone!

A beautiful property with just 35 mins by speedboat from airport. Super comfortable speedboats ( you won’t feel the bump during calm weather ) Rooms are super spacious. We preferred the beach villa with the pool since we had 2 kids. Pool is Well sized for kids to have fun. Bathroom is almost the same size as the room. Good spread of food and choice of restaurants. Overall a fab stay

It’s important to travel with the right company…. When the service & product disappoint you, you still have the company to be thankful for and still have a very good time. Expected better trained staff in Anantara but they seemed to be just doing their job. Lack the warm hospitality a good resort should have.
