My Fiancé and I just spend 8 nights at Anantara Veli for our honeymoon and it was the most amazing experience we could have asked for. Everything was 10/10 - accommodation (superior overwater bungalow) food, service, culture, activities, weather, EVERYTHING was amazing. Snorkelling was the best!! With my own eyes I saw 3 black-tip reef shark's, turtles, stingrays and all...

The resort is a good distance away from the airport at Male to avoid all the airplane noise but not too far to cost you an arm and a leg to just get there. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and we wanted to do it in style. At first glance the hotel seems a little pricey but the quality...

We initially stayed at Anantara Dhigu. Although we liked it, we prefer the privacy of this place. Perfect for couples. We stayed at a over the water villa and absolutely love it!
