The resort is located about 35-40mins by speedboat from Male airport. You have the selection of restaurants from the resorts around the island. The deluxe oversea pool bungalow is absolutely amazing.!!

Everyone at the Anantara made sure that our stay was one of the best. The food was delicious...and we knew the costs going in so we were ok with the pricing. They did their best to offer "deals" from their nightly happy hours and tapas menu we really felt that they were taking everyone feedback into consideration. The room was...

I've just returned from the paradise after spending 4 wonderful nights with my wife for a short getaway. It was a pleasant experience and the fabulous scenic view is truly fascinating. Whatever you see is just like what you could Google easily. The view is so 'unreal'. Anantara Veli provided just an unforgettable time of my life, surely one of...

Anatara is probably everything it hoped it would be for us. Eye candy beautiful, staff incredibly accommodating, and the resort is...clean. I would go so far as to say sterile. We stayed here for five glorious nights, and I would say we did not experience anything that resembles the Maldivian culture. This is a sterile, expensive, all-in-one resort. We travel...

The LOCATION is fantastic for who wants a quite place were you can swim, dive, read, or just enjoy the water even if you are not a swimmer. You don´t even need to know how to swim. I liked the most the water temperature, colour and fish views. The EMPLOYEES were very kind and helpful. A big hug for Murey...

While my fiancee and I overall enjoyed our week long stay here, two factors greatly detracted from our experience: 1) Food: We expected to pay twice as much for food as you normally would given this was a high end resort, but prices were offensively high. A single brownie cost $19. If I'm going to pay an outrageous amount of...
