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...

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 resort has heavenly beautiful facility, friendly staff and in extraordinary location with variety of wild life. The overwater bungalow makes time perfect. But there is room for improvements in food variety and quality.

Room very nice, service also.But I booked a dive in the hotel, scuba diving, and the most basic one I payed for me and my wife, U$ 500!!I think its kind of abuse, when you don't have any other service in the island, and diving is the must do thing in the island, you pay, but very upset with this...
