Anantara Veli Maldives Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Veligandu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 July 2017

From the moment we stepped off the speedboat until we left , the place and the staff has completely exceeded our expectations, the water is turquoise , you have sting rays and sharks just below your water villa. Its the perfect getaway for a couple who just want to unwind and relax and do absolutely nothing and gaze at the sea all day.

There are loads of water activities and every night there are different themes in different restaurants so you will never get bored.

Its an all adult only resort . Room service was excellent and food was good.

Stay in room no 181 , which is the watervilla with the pool as it is the best room they have and you will not regret it because you will get the best sunset view.

Room Tip: Choose room 181 for the best sunset view

Dear Queenfdez,

Thank very much for choosing Anantara Veli for your holiday. I was delighted to read about the memorable time that you spent with us.

We always appreciate when our valued guests share their feedback as it makes the service we provide even more worthwhile. Watching the sunset from our overwater pool bungalows are always highly recommended by all our guests, just as what you mentioned.

Our consistent aim is to provide a harmonious combination of the romantic, relaxation and a sense of adventure for all of our guests. The crystal clear waters filled with various species of marine life, the luxurious and stylish accommodation and our white beaches, all conspire to deliver your amazing experience. Also, sharing this stunning lagoon with our sister resorts, Anantara Dhigu Resort and Naladhu Maldives, means we can offer unique dining experiences, all with the backdrop of sophisticated luxury and Maldivian hospitality.

Along with these unique experiences and the dedicated service from the Anantara team members, all of our guests leave with new and lasting memories of their time spent with us.

Thank you once again for the glowing feedback which we will share with the wider team and we look forward to the distinct pleasure of welcoming you back at the resort in the near future.

In the meantime, do stay in touch with us through our Facebook page; you can find us under AnantaraVeliMaldives. Feel free to share your photos with us on Instagram by tagging us (@anantaraveli) or by using the hashtag #anantaraveli.

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!
