What we say

Anantara Veli

Oh! Those blue waters and that white, soft sand! It's just heaven on earth and it's all there for the taking....

Set in the South Male Atoll, Anantara Veli Resort and Spa is the sister resort of Anantara Dhigu; both peaceful but exciting, luxurious but homely, and exotic but accessible. Guess it's no surprise why the two resorts were among three complete resorts booked by a Saudi Prince earlier this year for an entire month of vacationing!

The stay..

Your stay is made divine by the plush accommodation that dreams are made of. The Over Water Bungalows are roomy, luxurious and awe-inspiring. With magnificent views and a spacious sundeck fringed with an infinity edge tub from which to enjoy picturesque sunsets, 'disappointment' is not a word that will ever enter one's vocabulary here.

The adventurous feel of a cliff edge is what you get with the Ocean Pool Bungalows that are placed on a secluded cliff facing the gorgeous Indian Ocean. A plunge pool, floor to ceiling glass doors and a host of other intricacies make this accommodation a favorite.

The mouthwatering food

A range of dining options are available to choose from, and you can never get enough of them. By morning a fresh buffet breakfast spot, and by evening a seafood restaurant, 73 Degrees is a true-Maldivian style venue where one can enjoy a meal with the feel of the sand between one's toes. Baan Huraa is loved by guests for the lovely Thai cuisine with distinct flavors prepared by Thai chefs, while Origami, as the name suggests, is the hotspot for some tasty Japanese dishes.

Make sure to also ask about the Dining by Design option where you can choose to dine at a location of your selection with a menu to suit your palate. It's the best way to create some special memories.

Tummies are always happy at Anantara Veli.

For the more laid-back, the resort offers yoga, a cooking school (yum!), island excursions, island picnics, sunset cruises, movies under the stars, and the list goes on...
For the romantic in you

It's because the Maldives is so picture perfect that even lovebirds from around the world choose to tie the knot here.

The guests just love the ambiance, and what a way to have a celebration!
