Anantara was an amazing experience for our honeymoon. The resort offers beautiful ambience, views and guest services. The most valuable thing is the quality of service of the people that make the stay even more wonderful.

We stayed between 10 to 13th December for 3 nights in the deluxe over water villa (Room 175). We travelled as a couple for the first time to Maldives for our 5th anniversary. Future travelers may take note of the following,

Transfers: the resort is close to the airport hardly 35 mins speed boat transfer. This service is provided by the resort and very prompt. Don’t bother with other far flung resorts and save money on this unless you have want the sea plane experience.

Resort and Guest Relations: the resort has everything you can ask for and they even provide snorkeling equipment and kayak for free for use for two hours in a day (more than enough). The resort is very well maintained and the guest services people are exceptionally courteous. Other Anantara resorts are on a separate islands and are a 30 second jetty ride away which you can explore as well.

Food: We went for breakfast only instead of half board on full and it worked out cheaper as we did Ala carte for dinner. We don’t drink so all inclusive didn’t make sense for us but for this who do I reckon it would make sense. Also water is provided complimentary and unlimited at the resort. The food at the Thai restaurant is great!

Room: it had a lovely bathroom and the room was quite clean. The room service is done twice a day and they make sure to keep everything spick and span.

Water sports: you can do whatever you feel like when it comes to water sports which obviously comes at a price. But they have everything.

Other: the resort has hammocks everywhere including in the middle of the ocean if you’d like to relax. They even have volleyball, tennis, pool table etc. So quite fully equipped to keep you entertained.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled as a couple

We stayed at Anantara Veli for 5 days and 4 nights and were blessed with beautiful weather for the duration of our stay.

The Room - Overwater bungalow
The room we stayed at had a beautiful view of the lagoon and we were able to go into the water via our room each day. We loved the fact that the bathroom opened up to the view and you could see fishes & coral from our shower area. We also loved the fact that you had the option to choose what pillows to use so definitely check this option out!

Food
We had half board and this was a great option - we loved the thai restaurant - Baan Hura! We regret not going during the day to also experience the beautiful view - although the night time experience was also quite wonderful.
Dining by Design was absolutely wonderful - the set up by the beach was so romantic and the seafood menu was super yummy!

Service
All the staff on Veli were welcoming and helpful - in fact I thought the staff were slightly more pleasant on Veli versus their sister island - Dhigu. Everywhere you go on Veli, you would be greeted by the staff. Special thanks to Ram, our host, who made us super welcome and also to the front office assistant manager Amlah (apologies if we spelt your name wrong) who was most understanding and gave us superior service.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anantara Veli and look forward to coming back!

Dear Vanessa L,

Thank very much for choosing Anantara Veli, and for taking the time to share your wonderful feedback about your stay in our little paradise with the online community.

We have shared your kind words with our colleagues, Amlah and Ram from Front Office, who are deeply thankful, and pass along their greetings.

We aim that our guest leave from here with amazing stories.

Thank you once again for the lovely feedback and we look forward to the distinct pleasure of having you back at the resort in the near future.
