The location, close to Male airport is a plus. The rooms are comparatively smaller but access to the lagoon and outdoor area makes up for it. Access to the sister resort Dhigu and a smaller island was great for variety and different experiences. Overlooking a local island with tall satellite antennas and buildings was the only negative.

Our honeymoon was in literal paradise! We were welcomed at the airport by a very humble crew, which ushered us to our boat; the boat trip to the island was smooth and we were given water and fresh towels on board. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by a small traditional drum and singing group. The settling in the hotel was...

On the boat transfer, we were given cold towels and bottled water. Check in was smooth and quick. We were taken to our bungalow and informed of the resort facilities and...

It was an amazing holiday experience. The staff & management under Mr Coetzee were very welcoming, warm & hospitable. They went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. The Oiverwater Villas at Veli were private & comfortable which have direct access into the lagoon. We did not have to go very far to snorkel as there...

We flew from Seattle to Maldives for a 10 day live aboard adventure, and since we were coming so far, we thought we would spend few days at a resort. We selected Anantara Veli because we didn't have our kids with us, and it had multiple islands to explore. The room is great, bathroom fantastic, service amazing and the setting...
