Hotel's Favorite
First of all, this resort is stunning! It really is breathtaking at every turn. We were worried we would be bored having only the resort on the island to explore but we found endless things to do and places to explore. One thing I want to emphasize it get a Deluxe Pool Villa. It is by far worth the price. The difference in size, view and privacy make it more than worth it! Here are the pros and cons: Pros: Amazing villa where you can see fish and small sharks right off your deck! Great expansive breakfast Amazing Thai restaurant out over the water with wonderful food and ocean breezes Super friendly service - say hi to Bokey and Sony and Jimmy for us! Tropic surf is a tp notch team of Fiona and Josh. They helped us with awesome surfing and Paddleboarding adventures. Don’t miss Paddleboarding around the resort. It was a highlight. Special little nooks where you could go and feel like you were the only one on there island. I wont ruin them for you. Finding them is part of the fun! Amazing spa! Looks like not much from the outside but wait until you see the treatment rooms. Wow! Cons: It is as expensive as you see in other reviews. Even though we got a late checkout, you are made to feel less than important in the departure process. They were even grumbly about letting us sit in the air conditioned lounge before our flight. The staff clearly felt it was for arriving passengers only. Overall, I would say go. It is a once in a lifetime experience! See more pics on my instagram #shotsbykristinab

This beach getaway was exactly what I needed. I am not big on large resorts with tons of people crowding you with loud music blasting, which is why I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Anatara. The calm serenity of the blue beaches contrasted by the white sand was precisely the reset my soul craved. In addition, the Thai and Indian cuisines were delicious. I definitely recommend Anatara Maldives for those looking to unplug from the hustle and bustle of the busy world. Cheers!

It was a fabulous experience. For South Africans though with the exchange rate it was very expensive when purchasing food etc. So i would recommend either H/B or F/B as everything is USD based. But in having said that it was fabulous and the resort is highly recommended for couples. The over the water bungalows were amazing spacious and had everything you could possibly need. The staff were amazing caring kind attentive friendly always had a smile on their faces courteous and knowledgeable. We loved our stay!
