We only spent one night here but it was such fun and love our over water pool bungalow - spacious, clean and quiet with matching hibiscus flowers arranged in heart on the bed and a menu of pillows to choose from (there's none in my room in Kihavah during my 3-night stay although it was in their website). I like...

My wife & I stayed in this resort (5D4N) last December 1-5, 2016 and we really enjoyed a lot. It was one of the best places we've been to & was a paradise on earth!!! The waters are so serene & turquoise clear blue that you can see the fishes immediately. The island itself is perfect especially how the Anantara...

We spent three great nights on Veli for my wife's 40th birthday. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and the resort is beautiful. Some notes: -Staying on Veli was nice: if you wanted to hang out, you could do so at the deck off your room, or there were multiple places to sit/lounge on the beach around the island. Although...

I visited here with my husband for our honeymoon - if you want somewhere that is better than the photos, and all you want to do is relax, than this is the perfect spot! We stayed in a overwater bungalow which was simply amazing. We had visits from sting rays, reef sharks, turtles and fish every single day, and it...

We stayed the last 4 nights of November after a week on a dive boat. Airport transfer: smooth. Upgraded room due to GHA membership: no problem. Activities: SUPping, sailing, snorkeling. Used the gym every day. Dive shop very professional and they are used to all skill levels. Food high quality and modern (a bit pricey- but this is not a...

All our requests were swiftly handled with utmost efficiency. Nothing more we could ask for. We will certainly stay at Anantara again when we visit Maldives or...

Best place to enjoy your honeymoon! All staff are very kind and friendly, they treat you like royalty, the restaurants are great and the rooms are fantastic. The weather is excellent, can rain for couple of minutes but you should't worry about it.

My wife and I have just returned from 7 nights at the Anantara Veli resort in the Maldives. 24 weeks pregnant with our first child, this was our last chance to enjoy a holiday just the two of us and it was an extraordinary and incredible experience. First the negatives - this bit is easy, there aren't any. The mini...

We were 2 friends and stayed in Anantara Veli Resort. We have booked a water bungalow for one night. Before we arrived, we researched a lot of resorts on the Maldives and found out that Anantara is one of the best. And our holiday there was really the perfect one! When we arrived in the resort, we received a warm...

Anantara Veli is a fun, well-maintained, and service-oriented resort. The “house reef” is teaming with marine life, and if you stay for more than a few days, you’re likely to encounter black-tipped sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, and all sorts of colorful fish. While sporting high-touch service, it does fall short of the ultra-luxury status that say, a Four Seasons, likely...
