Ever wondered where the most relaxing holiday destination could be? Look no further, the Maldives has to be it. Make your way to the South Male Atoll and don't forget your selfie stick, because that's where you'll find Anantara Dhigu Resort and Spa.
How about taking the most awesome selfies with a gorgeous natural backdrop in the tropics?
The clear blue waters of the lagoon and the turquoise oceans beckon you to a relaxing holiday seeped in comfort and luxury. The Resort is breathtaking. The choice is yours to enjoy the sunrise or sunset with a selection of Beach Villas facing the early morning pink sunrise or the purple hues of dusk at sunset. Pool Villas and Over Water Suites offer their own unique delights to pamper yourself as you live it up.
What a destination!
Make your way to the Maldivian Arts and Crafts Corner to enjoy and purchase some great souvenirs or enjoy the activities the Water Sports and Diving Centre have to offer like Snorkeling, Diving, Island Discovery Tours and Fishing expeditions. In fact, Night Diving is a firm favorite- there's so much to discover in the underwater world in its luminescent light. Aquafanatics can also sign up for some Marine Bio Presentations that are sure to enthrall.
But if a little rest and relaxation is what you're after then wait till the sun casts a romantic shadow over the beautiful island to settle in with a great book in a hammock suspended over the waters. More romance awaits, as you snuggle up with a loved one for an exciting Movie Night under the stars in an unmatched ambience. During the day, play a game of tennis with the guidance of a Tennis Pro. Better yet, if you're an adrenalin junckie and an ocean lover, the excursions are simply endless...
Then when the day is done, don't forget the daily Happy Hour Promotions at the Dhoni and Aqua Bar.
But don't stay marooned in your suite, there's so much to do! Anantara Dhigu has a brochure of activities set up for each day so much so that the word "boredom" will leave your vocabulary during your stay. Opt for some surfing lessons or cookery lessons- you can't complain that there's no variety.... These are things the whole family can do. You're never too young or old to surf and the resort's resident instructor will make you comfortable on the waves in no time. Or stay dry and content as the resort chef helps you make your favorite Maldivian, Thai or Fusion Cuisine at his fun cookery classes. Not interested?
The daily children's activities are sure to keep the kids entertained and you, trouble-free. With a super Children's Club that includes two cool dhoni boats, a climbing wall and a tree house, their day is taken care of. And for a little more excitement, take part in a family activity where the marine biologist at the Aquafanatics Water Sports and Dive Centre will teach you how new coral gardens are created by attaching coral to iron frames. Wow!
And don't forget; you young moms and dads out there- there's a professional babysitting service for toddlers and children from 3 years above, so that you can have the best vacation ever.
At Anantara Dhigu, the young ones are not forgotten.
Don't really feel like Italian? Then there's the Fuddan Fusion Grill where the best seafood delicacies make their way to your table. Mornings are glorious at the Fushi Cafe breakfast buffet attractively laid out on the golden beach complete with live cooking stations, while the Baan Huraa Thai restaurant perched in the ocean brings the unique flavors of Thailand close to you. In reality, it's the whole world of tastes at your fingertips! And don't forget to display your romantic side by choosing the "Dining by Design" option where you can request for the place you wish to dine such as a private island or a Maldivian Sailing Dhoni. What an experience!
The possibilities at this incredible resort are endless; it's no wonder that the resort won the Trip Advisor Traveler's Choice Award for 2013, the Maldives Leading Family Resort award for 2014 and was nominated 2015 "Indian Ocean" Leading Leisure Hotel! Be it a family vacation, a break from your busy life or a romantic holiday or honeymoon, there is no place that can satisfy all your needs like Anantara Dhigu.
This is what resort life is all about.
What's a good holiday without scrumptious food? Well, no worries there. Anantara Dhigu offers the most sumptuous cuisine prepared to perfection. Dine in the comfort of your villa or on the deck of your suite, or wander over to one of the super restaurants at the resort. A favorite is the Terrazzo which brings out the Italian in you. The homemade lobster ravioli and "table side spun Caesar" are to die for, while the wines from Italy stored in the restaurant's climatically controlled cellar, transport you to another world.
Unwind and relax at the Anantara Dhigu Spa as they pamper you with their signature treatments at their over water spa rooms. Imagine getting a blissful massage while the creatures of sea say hello to you?
Well that's the experience you get with the glass bottom of the Spa area where you can get a glimpse of the gorgeous underwater world. The expert therapists will work their magic while transporting you to a peaceful place of your own.
