Concerning anantara south male


(and sorry for my english, I'm french - bad news !)

The hotel is really magnificent, but we were quite disappointed because of several points :

- no reef near the beach. The only way to see fishes is to take a boat(two trips a day, 25$ each, ten minutes from the shore). We expected to practise snorkeling from the beach -what you see on the website is quite far from reality - , but there's only a long lagoon all around the island, and it's absolutely impossible.

- bungalows are very closed of each others. Reading on your terrasse, your neignbours are at about three meeters, with a very young and short vegetal protection.

- no internet access at all.

- very expensive meals : 26$ for a hamburger with french fries. No choice, excepted if you don't mind to be ruined in the restaurants.

- Do ask for sundown rooms : on the other side, the view is on other islands and works in progress (even if more vegetals on this side).

On the other hand, several positive points :

- wonderful wiew, magnificent swimming pool and very luxuous bungalows.

- The island is nearly empty : only a few rooms are finished. So, you can be quiet. But when it will be finished, the island will be overcrowded.

Have a nice stay

Hi Bateman75

Thank you for your posting, I am going to the Anantara in 3 weeks time and really looking forward to it. Are you going to post any photos of the hotel on the Trip Advisor site as I would really like to see actual real photos(as opposed to the one's on the hotels official website) of this resort and it's rooms and amenities? Please!!
