Me and my husband have decided to go anantara veil for the honeymoon a week before the ramadan holiday. We were so worried about the weather as it showed in the internet that its mostly cloudy and chance of rain about 60%, however, it only drizzled about 10 minutes. The weather was fantastic. The service were incredible! Staffs are very... More

We came to the Anantara Veli after being really impressed by the service at the Anantara in Bali in 2015. We were not disappointed! After a safe and speedy boat trip from the airport, we were warmly greeted by the staff and shown to our over water bungalow. Amazing view from the room - and the bathroom was huge -... More

If you are looking for a complete break from it all, to be spoilt silly and to be in one of the idyllic places on this planet, then this is the place. We arrived via the speedboat transfer to be greeted on the jetty by management and staff, with native drums being played and a very warm welcome, this set... More

While staying at the Dhigu Anantara Maldives resort, we had the chance to go to the Veli Maldives many times by Pontoons, either for dinner or meditation..... We were impressed by the "romantic" touch there in which makes it a perfect spot for honey mooners and lovers. We loved it's restaurants and highly recommend the Thai restaurant, the Japanese and...

I was a little bit dissapointed we expected something more expectacular. Let me start with the good things. Great service by the staff, great spa over the water, good thai and japanese restaurants. Lovely island. The bad things. The outdoor pool is totaly a dissapointment. We expected something amazing for the place, sometimes you just need normal pool water instead... More

This resort does not hold back. From early check in (8am) to late check out (6pm). There was free breakfast buffet every morning, free 8 bottles of water every day, free use of snorkel gear for your stay and warm customer service. We booked a deluxe over water bungalow and it was beautiful. I could live in that bungalow for... More

We stayed 4 nights at Anantara Veli and already from the airport pick up we felt very special. The speed boat transfer to the hotel is fun and took around 35 minutes. On arrival we were greeted by 3 drummers, a juice and a cold towel. Sahudy was assigned to us as our go to person and was very helpful... More

Incredible resort with and exceptional staff! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left (quite reluctantly!... we truly did not want to leave) each Team Member, especially Shaudy and Sulvaan- our host and room boy- went above and beyond to make our trip very relaxing, extremely enjoyable, and quite memorable. From little gestures like making all of our... More

After planting your first batch of villas directly on the coral reef and subsequently completely destroying them, we can read about Antantara's Coral Nursery. 9 divers spent an amazing 19 hours to transplant coral in 2010: amends made!! 6 years later the place is a aquatic wasteland. Antantara does not really understand the concept of price vs volume. 1 quesadilla,... More
