Truly a paradise! The island is beautiful, food are great, staffs are friendly and willing to share their views and recommend what's available at the 2 islands or even where to visit. Thinking where to celebrate your anniversary or honeymoon? Do check this resort out! They have a family island as well if you are thinking of a family trip!

Maldives has become a memorable trip because of its uniqueness. And Anantara Veli certainly deserves the credit. Few things I cannot forget from Maldives are the clean beaches, serene atmosphere, hospitality of the resort people and amazing breakfast. Although it feels expensive, the experience is unique and well worth. The water activities were so much fun, and the clear waters...

The resort is beautiful, just like other Maldives island, but the service does not meet my expectation. I chose this resort to experience the overwater room. The bedroom is not bad, just not impressive enough. What I want to complain is the service. From checking in to entering my room, the guide does not smile at all, contradicting other Maldives...

I strongly recommend the hotel for its outstanding service and a personalized touched they do on the last night. You might just consider a half board rate. I recommend you book direct with Anantara and not through reservation websites to get the best of you are paying. If you like snorkeling, bring your own equipment as you can use the...
