I would like to commend the staff in Anantara Veli and Dhigu during our stay. We felt very special and all the staff were very much accommodating.

Special mention to people namely Ammaday at Dhoni bar, he was very interactive and provided us good information about Maldives and its people. Riza from Aqua Bar, she surely knows how to mix drinks and even though she has much going on with at the restaurant she made it sure we were taken care of.

We also availed of the Anantara Signature massage at the Spa in Dhigu where we were greeted by Janet, she was very much knowleadgeable about all the things that goes on in her spa.

We are planning to come back in the near future when our baby is much older as we bumped into their childrens play area which was very organised and complete with the games and entertainment for kids. Thess was the one looking after the kids and surely she knows how to give them a good time.

This trip has diffidently exceeded our expectations that was already very high. Staff hospitality and resort management succeeded to provide unmatched relaxing atmosphere. Being in Maldives is by itself great experience but staying in Anantara Veli made this stay one of out best lifetime experience.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at this magnificent resort in March 2017. We stayed in an overwater villa with plunge pool. We had a breathtaking view across the ocean with our private deck and plunge pool. The vast luxurious villa provided absolute privacy and had its direct access to the crystal waters of the lagoon.
We enjoyed snorkeling among hundreds of multi-colored fish, encountering and swimming with dolphins and spending a day in the hotel's private natural island where we enjoyed an excellent lunch.
The Spa and Gym where also excellent so was the quality and variety of food. I recommend the Japanese restaurant. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We hope to come back again to enjoy this heavenly retreat!

We have spent our honeymoon in Anantara Veli, we couldn't have made any better choice! Water bungalows are really comfortable and cosy. Perfect service, perfect sea, delicious foods, always smiling and helpful staff. We were delighted with the suprises of the hotel. As the hotel contains 3 islands, you have alternatives for sea and restaurants but you will be pleased in all of them. You should try signature massage and different treatments in SPA. Underwater there's another world, it is free to borrow a schnorkel. We have already missed Anantara Veli and thanks for all the good memories!
