I believe all resorts here in Maldives will be paradise, and I agree with the many wonderful reviews here regarding service and location and will not repeat. Food was not amazing, but not lacking in variety and quality. We really enjoyed the free snorkeling gear that allowed us to snorkel right out of our bungalow an any hours of during...

Our stay at Anantera Veli delivered precisely what we needed in every possible way. From the initial greeting at the Male airport, to the final goodbye, the warmth and hospitality of the staff never ceased to amaze. Crystal clear waters, stunning sea life, beautiful island scenery, uncrowded facilities, top notch dining experiences, and a well executed plethora of activities to...

We stayed for 4 nights at Anantara. The ability to move between different islands removed any sense of feeling trapped in one place. Staff are excellent all round, and very amenable and friendly. Prices are on the high side, but I assume that is likely true of any 5 star resort in the Maldives. Overall, however, we couldn't fault it.

Maldives is truly a paradise here on earth but staying in Anantara Veli ( couples resort ) made our getaway extra special. Everything at the resort is made and done with special attention to make sure every guest leaves with one of the most memorable vacation of their lives. Now we are rejuvenated and energized to go back to work...

My husband and I have been to the Maldives four times over the last decade, and this was our first time staying at the Anantara Veli. Despite having stayed at some pretty good hotels in the past, we blown away with the excellent service and overall experience at the Anantara Veli resort. This must have been one of the most...

Its not often you go to a location that not only looks better in person than it does in the photos, but also completely exceeds your expectations in every possible way. Simply this is one of the best holidays I have ever had! The location is amazing, the staff were incredible and everything about the resort was stunning. From the...

Paradise on Earth in every way from location, accommodation, food and people. Cannot do enough for you. Still here but compelled to comment now...

I was lucky enough to spend 8 days on Veli island with my wife. The moment you enter the "Anantara Way", which starts at the arrival area of the airport, you are treated like a long lost friend. The Island is amazing and the staff incredible. A big thank you to Prashrit who was willing ready and able to assist...
