We stayed in an overwater bungalow and could not have been happier. The rooms are large and comfortable. They overlook the reef and we could watch fish swimming around the coral from our balcony and our bathroom! The restaurants provide great food. The facilities are excellent. It is very relaxing. The only downside is the cost of alcohol and other...

Dear Atiyatalla A , Thank you for taking the time to review Anantara Veli Resort. I sincerely apologise for the discomfort you appear to have experienced; this is most definitely not exemplary of a stay at Anantara Veli, our signature heartfelt hospitality or of our service standards. After following up with the resort team I understand there was some miscommunication...

I stayed in Naladhu which is connected to Anantara Veli by a water bridge. I highly recommend the spa in Anantara Veli because my facial experience there was truly amazing. I had redness and allergic reactions on my skin when I went to the spa. I began with the SOS facial. After only one treatment, I saw an immediate recovery...

The staff, the food, rooms, cleanliness, everything was impeccable. Half hour boat ride from the airport was not a problem, smooth ride and fully covered.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. We had an overwater bungalow and the ability to dive straight into the lagoon was amazing.
