Beautiful place, friendly service, great food. I recommend the rooms with private pool. Every restaurant I tried were great, especially the thai and italian. Everything is super expensive though, but i guess this is expected.

We had a fantastic stay at Anantara Veli! Although we had not a very pleasant start the staff ensured that we loved every moment of the rest of our holiday!

Pro:
- throughout our Maldives experiences over 4 resorts, this resort has the best reef and amazing snorkelling. Beautiful as a postcard!
- great breakfast and food.The japanese restaurant was our favourite with a very talented chef Gharib!
- fantastic SPA experience.
- lovely water villas!
- 3 connected island that provide a big variety of restaurants
- check out Naladhu for more exclusivity and privacy.

Cons:
- bar atmosphere not that great and too quite at times

Stayed: May 2017, travelled as a couple

We loved every minute at this resort. Our room was really amazing, we didn't want to leave..the private pool and over water bungalow is really amazing! The restaurants were top notch, the food and drinks were really good! The service is really outstanding at the restaurants, in villa dining, etc. We had Ram as our villa concierge and he took the best possible care of us, always checking on us and helping us we anything we needed. Julianne, the manager was really nice and caring. Overall a great experience, we felt that they were always trying to accommodate us. The entire staff was courteous and nice, would definitely recommend this resort. Very peaceful ambiance.

Highly recommended!!!! You wu¡ill find what you are looking for. Everything is great , excellent service, rooms, restaurants. The location is great, enjoying any minute. This is a place to visit. Highly recommended half board. you will pay for every single bottle of water...but...Everybody there are really professionals and nice, helping you continually, respecting your privacy. We booked a DE luxe overwater. I think thats the correct choice, not only for the location, which is important.

Everything was perfect, they welcome us with music and the manager was there in person in the arrival and departure! Big room with everything we needed , I absolutely loved the coffee machine :) shower with view ,hot and pressure. Big thanks to the cake and Cava as we were celebrating 15 years of relationship :) All the staff are kind and helpful and do everything they can to pleased you. You can enjoy free kayaking and they give you snorkels also for free. I loved the Spar, went everyday to see the sunset,the best view and very peaceful place :)
My only complain is about the price of the restaurants but I guess all the resorts are the same ;) and also didn't like one day I went to the breakfast room and the girl at the door asked me to wear a t-shirt, I was wearing a long skirt and a top(decent one), I had no problem about wearing it, once she asks the other girls(everyone) to do the same, some of them was much worse them me, so that's my observation for the management! Anyway, apart from that I had a perfect time there and a very big well done to the manager, she knows how to rule very well! :) We will come back one day for sure and wont be very long! :)

Room Tip: I would say the cheapest room are the closest to the boat ,so you dont have much privacy
