Veli blew us away in every aspect of our stay! The reservations staff was too kind to have us check in really early as we were coming in from another island, not from Male. Zahir from Front Office, a very nice guy, also have us check out late. It's one of those perks when traveling during the low season but every staff member that we've met was genuinely nice and warm.
Our villa was really nice and spacious. Everything was luxurious. The housekeeping team was amazing. Our bed/villa gets automatically made up every time we come back from a swim or from lunch or dinner.
They have a number of good restaurants, a lot to choose from (including their sister resorts').
It's an adults-only resort (yes, no kids haha) and it's highly recommended for honeymooners. They offer complimentary 2-hour kayak use per day with free snorkeling equipment. There are so many activities there that will make every couple busy. The beaches at Veli and Moyo Island did not feel crowded including their infinity pool. We were the only ones there most of the time which was an added bonus since we always like secluded beaches all to ourselves.
The beautiful island itself, luxurious villas and amenities, great food, excellent service all make up an unforgettable Maldivian holiday. Our experience at Anantara Veli was definitely one of the best in all of our travels and we can't wait to come back!
