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.

Perfect in every detail. We had half board, that's importante in order not to worry about anything. Save some Money to experience activities such as snorkling, surfing, diving, parasailing, wakeboarding, kayaking and so. Stay no less then 5 days. If you dont want internet, don't bring your cell, cause wifi is perfect everywhere. I recomend.
