It was our honeymoon and we stayed for 11 nights. Everyone in the staff was incredible... So thoughtful, friendly, and always helpful. They upgraded our room for the last few nights. The food was excellent. Snorkeling was amazing. Thanks Muray and Prashirt, we can't thank you enough.

We decided to stay at the Anantara Veli back in April. We were most intrigued about the 3 islands together, Dhigu being a family friendly island, Veli is for couples only and Naladhu is the exclusive island. You can opt to dine on any of the 3 islands. Our Bungalow was facing a tropical island, which was nice and private...

It is amazing to stay here for five days to celebrate our 5th anniversary and also my birthday. This is clearly a heaven-like resort that best suits the couples to stay. Pricing for food at this resort is extremely high so it is good to book half / full board in advance or you may feel regret.
