Offering sensational diving and snorkeling opportunities with the warm waters of the Indian Ocean to the north and neighboring Maldives’ channels to the south, the Naladhu Atoll is very popular with tourists due to its many atolls.

Pamper yourself with the astonishing views of the seas surrounded by one of the most charming islands in South East Asia – Anantara Veli Maldives. The resort is set on an idyllic island, with more than 100 water villas, which are positioned over the lagoon or rest close to the shoreline on a picturesque beach.

Anantara Veli Resort & Spa is one-of-a-kind resort situated in the heart of the Maldives. Along with that, it provides a range of 5-star facilities such as indoor and outdoor tennis courts or a fitness center named Balance Wellness Spa offering you to escape from reality to a natural sanctuary within the lush surroundings of the inner island and experience a holistic approach to wellbeing.

Anantara Veli offers a variety of dining options to suit every palate. From international buffet nights to romantic candlelit dinners, a range of culinary flavors awaits, from Thai cuisine served in authentic surrounds at Baan Huraa – Anantara’s beach-side restaurant – to gourmet dining with a unique menu designed specifically for you and the chef in our Teppanyaki Restaurant Origami.

    Fantastic resort in an exceptional location.
    Pros: From the moment we got off the boat transfer we were made to feel special, our host Jenny looked after us straight away. Jenny took us for a guided tour of the island, explained to us about the restaurants and any special events happening that week, if we needed to book any other restaurants we just had to text her, and she sorted it out. We were staying in a deluxe over water villa, the room was fantastic, very well equipped, and well laid out. The villa has direct access to the sea as well as very comfortable sun beds and a day bed. Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi in the rooms is very poor to the point of non-existent, I would expect better in a hotel of this standard. The quality and variety of food in the restaurants was amazing, we especially liked Baan Huraa and Cumin. There was an excellent variety of food available for breakfast, we loved the fresh fruit and pastry we were given while we waited to choose our breakfast. We booked the beach BBQ for one night, although this isn’t covered by the food package it was well worth the money. The food was amazing, the location, atmosphere and music made it one of our best nights of the holiday. We also loved Dhoni bar, we had lunch there most days, we were always served by Faz, who deserves a special mention. She always greeted us with a smile, a cold drink and cold towel. The bar man Champika also deserves a special mention, he would always have drink on the bar for us. If there wasn’t a cocktail on the menu my wife liked Champika would look it up and make it for her. We took out the drinks package for the 7 days we were there, I would strongly recommend taking this option for peace of mind. The beach was really well kept, the sunbeds were well spaced apart, each sunbed had a button for you to order drinks on the beach. The whole holiday experience was magical, and we will certainly be returning as soon as we can.
    Cons: The only negative point was our transfer wasn’t until 4.00pm, we requested a late check out, but this is charged at 195$ which is a bit over the top. They do provide a seperate room and shower to get changed in near the reception and bar.

    Все как в рекламе Баунти-сказочно.Сама себе завидую.
    Pros: Наш остров был великолепен.Наш дворецкий Рифау очень отзывчив.Питание на завтракахсоответствовало лучшим стандартам кулинарии и диетологии.Очень хочу отметить ресторан Ориентал и Итальянский ресторан Аква на соседнем острове.Все было чудесно- от лагуны до номера.Вот не к чему мне придраться!!! Спасибо всему персоналу!!!
    Cons: Для тех кто не ест суперострые блюда пишу специально. В ресторане тайской кухни БарааХураа бесполезно просить сделать не остро. У нас разные понятия об остроте. Короче, кто не ест дико острое-острое и не любит когдда ему дважды вписывают в чек одно и тоже- не ходите.Этот вечер был испорчен окончательно.

    We are about to leave this beautiful hotel and I thought Id share my experience here. Me and my husband picked Anantara Veli for our honeymoon and absolutely happy with our choice! Our over water pool villa was amazing. Bungalow had everything you need and beyond. Special thank you to our housekeeper Anas who made sure room was perfect twice a day and even more if needed. Island offers 7 restaurants and all of these did not disappoint! Our favorites were Cumin and Thai. Food and service were exceptional. Food is delicious, flavorful, and authentic. Special thank you to our host Yasir who took care of all our needs. Yasir is beyond professional and simply a good person to be around. We would also like to express our gratitude to Bokey. He was more than just a hospitality member he became family to us! We can’t help but mention how kind Zin was to us. He always greeted us with the biggest smile on his face and made us feel welcomed. We enjoyed our 9 day stay at Anantara Veli and will always remember this place with all the amazing Staff members who made sure our honeymoon was beyond expectations. Thank you !

    Unsere Erfahrung im Anantara Veli Hotel auf den Malediven war schlichtweg fantastisch! Die idyllische Lage, der makellose weiße Sandstrand und das kristallklare türkisblaue Wasser haben unsere Erwartungen weit übertroffen. Das Personal, insbesondere Ibrahim, Zin und Aboo, haben unseren Aufenthalt zu etwas Besonderem gemacht. Ihre herzliche Gastfreundschaft, aufmerksamer Service und ihre ständige Bereitschaft, jeden Wunsch zu erfüllen, verdienen höchste Anerkennung. Ein besonderer Dank gebührt Aboo, dessen Engagement und Freundlichkeit unseren Aufenthalt unvergesslich gemacht haben.

    We spent 7 blissful night at this amazing resort for our 20th wedding anniversary celebration. My husband’s bday was during our trip and the resort made several beautiful gestures to wish him well. The snorkelling was spectacular and we did one scrub dive which was amazing as we saw a large turtle. Overall it was a stunning place to spend a week in. Would love to return

    Great resort for a getaway, many great food choices (7 restaurants), we stayed for 3 nights and we don’t get bored of the food options. The resort is made up of 3 interconnected islands each with its own beaches and views. Many beautiful snorkeling spots easy to access from the beaches where we were able to see a turtle, baby sharks and many other types of fish. Our host Ibrahim was great and very accommodating to all our needs. Overall highly recommended for a getaway vacation.

    Had the most relaxing and memorable holiday at Anantara Veli recently. The staff were extremely warm and welcoming. The food was impeccable. Special mention to Chef Subodh from Fushi cafe who made us the tastiest indian food! His passion and dedication to his work really made this a very unique experience for us. We enjoyed Cumin, Dhoni bar and Aqua as well. Highly recommended.

    A trip of a lifetime! An amazing holiday of pure luxury and exceptional service. Staff never say no and genuinely want you to be happy and enjoy yourself. I’ve been to Maldives 3 times and it gets better every time. Being in the adults only island was so peaceful but also allowed us to enjoy the restaurants and other facilities on the other islands. Italian, Thai and the beach dinner were our absolute favourites. The villa was stunning and views were incredible. Special thank you to Noah, Bokey, Ibrahim and Chef Sai for their personal touch and exceptional hospitality!

    The island is very unique and has beautiful lagoon. The guests have access to different restaurants located in Anantara Veli and Anantara Dhigu as well. The food is fantastic, the rooms are modern and well maintained. The staff makes a huge difference in this resort, from the line staff to the top management. Special thanks to Bokey, who goes above and beyond in providing exceptional service.

    I stayed here for 3 nights and it was absolutely worth every penny. I arrived at the airport and was taken to their airport lounge before I was taken to their speedboat. It was very well organised. I picked this place due to it being a short transfer from the airport and being adults only (they do allow children from their other resort but I barely saw any and it didn't disrupt the chill vibe) Once I arrived, I was allocated Alam to be my host. He kindly showed me around and told me about the various restaurants. He also booked my dinner reservations for me (Cumin was my fave). I had an over water villa which had stunning views and the water was so clear I could see fish swimming by whilst sitting on the balcony. The breakfasts and dinner at Cumin were my fave and the staff there were all extremely welcoming. As a solo traveller in the Maldives I was worried I may feel out of place but this wasnt the case at all and I was made to feel very welcome. On the return, the speedboat was arranged for me and they escorted me all the way to security in the airport. If you're looking for somewhere to stay, this is the place! I would say if you get sea sick take some motion sickness tablets as my speedboat was very choppy!

    Anantara Velli exceeded our expectations. After a long journey from the UK we arrived tired and were underwhelmed as we disembarked the speed boat in arrival. How wrong we were!! The Anantara resort is beautiful. Peaceful, tranquil, crystal clear warm water, sand & resort are spotless ( never gets hot ) fish swimming, the beautiful images you see are the reality here. We had a De Luxe water bungalow, which was spacious and extremely comfortable with a large bathroom and terrace. Wonderful touches from the house keeper welcoming us good morning Etc made us feel special. The food is excellent, superior to what I expected, The Italian, Seafood restaurant & Thai all had wonderful views, great service and greets food. The staff here are excellent, friendly, efficient and warm. I loved that you could get a boat which ran constantly between Dighu & Veli as it provided variety. I understand from the staff that Velli is closing for a revamp & I look forward to returning as I can only imagine it will be even more heavenly. I have travelled to many wonderful places but The Maldives, and this resort is the most wonderful beach resort of all.

    We had an amazing 5 night stay and celebrated New Years here. It is clear that the entire staff and team treat each other like a close knit family - incredibly thoughtful, caring and respectful. Food was one of the highlights of the trip - every meal we had was magical. Alam really made our trip extra special and defined our experience - he went out of his way and above and beyond every day to make sure that our stay was perfect.

Pictures and videos do not do justice to this natural bliss environment; it makes you feel as though you are in heaven. Thank you Michael and your wonderful wonderful staff (far too many names to name) who made every moment of our stay feel magical. Hoping to you see you all again in May/June 2024.

    I spent 12 days in the Maldives over Christmas and New Year's, which was way too long (surprisingly)! Staff said guests almost never stay that long. In any case, we wanted to stay at Anantara Khihava or Soneva Jani because of the properties and underwater restaurant. However, we searched high and low for an "adult only" resort. We chose Anantara Veli because it was listed as a premier "adult only" island, and it had a nice list of restaurants and activities. However, once there, we learned that the island itself didn't have much of anything going on, and you had to keep jumping in a boat to go to their other island, Dhigu. Also, we learned that Veli actually allows families with kids to come to all of their restaurants. This was quite annoying and made dinners very "un-romantic" to have kids screaming and running around uncontrollably as "some" of the parents just sat there not really parenting at all. The resort claima that allow families from the other islands to come to give them more choices of restaurants/activities, but "adult only" should mean just that!! If I wanted to be with other families with kids, I would have gone to a place that was much more fun with scheduled activities. This place, however, was boring, overly and unreasonably expensive, and the enjoyment of private romantic moments were spoiled! I would NOT recommend this. And, don't get me wrong, I actually love kids...but I left mine at home for a reason!! And it would be fine if they want to give the "adult only" island guests an opportunity to experience other island restaurants/activities, but not the other way around (as then it would be a choice in whether I wanted to be around kids). There are not many "adult only" islands on the Maldives, but when you find one, be sure to thoroughly inquire about its policies. Also, this island faces the famous Maafushi island, which seemed to be the party and happening place with lots of shopping and restaurants. It was literally a 5-10 minute boat ride away, and yet Veli tried to charge nearly $700 to arrange for a visit. They obviously discourage it as one would discover how cheap things could be and that the other island is far more fun! Also, I learned that Maafushi only charged $20/each way to get them from Male airport, whereas Veli (practically next door) charged more than $600/couple! Every price was extreme (at least 2-10 times the average price of things)!! The website was very misleading, and we didn't know that we had to do all of this other stuff at Dhigu until we actually arrived at Veli. It was monsoon season so the weather is hit or miss, so it's nicer to NOT have to leave the island just to eat certain foods. The very expensive and mandatory prices for the Christmas and New Year's celebrations were all on the other island...with probably 100 kids, so again, not very romantic! This was there way of being cheap by throwing a single event while taking a lot of money! Although I was disappointed with the prices and policies, the staff at Veli was 5-star, however, and our Villa host/butler really got us through the experience. Thanks Alam, Ibrahim, and a few others for all of your efforts to keep us comfortable!

    We had the most lovely time at Anantara Veli resort. It goes without saying that it is the most beautiful place I have ever been to The beaches were 10/10. We stayed at a beach villa which had a private pool and also access to the beach which was very convenient. Our room was always clean and nicely decorated. We were also provided with snacks and drinks. Thanks to Saamid for this. Everything was just perfect during our stay. The staff were super helpful and kind and did their absolute best to ensure we had the best time. A special thanks to Jennifer for taking care of us. She was always available and helped us with everything. I would also like to thank Sham and Sajit for ensuring everything went smoothly. We had lunch at Dhoni Bar and was hosted by the loveliest bartender Shaafy. The mocktails were amazing. Cumin was definitely one of the best indian restaurants I have been to. A very authentic experience. I particularly liked the maldivian-Indian fusion dishes. Thanks to Bokey for recommending the best dishes. I cannot recommend this resort enough. I particularly liked the fact that we could also go to their sister resort Dhigu within a few minutes, and a nearby picnic island called Gulhi without any extra charge. We didn’t have time try the restaurants at Dhigu but will definitely try next time. The experience was surreal and I can’t wait to visit this beautiful resort in the Maldives again.

    Just finished a stay at the Anantara Resort in Maldives and can honestly say it was by far the best resort we've ever stayed in (and we travel a lot). The quality of service, the quality and range of food and drink options - alongside really well organised and brilliantly fun events such as the Christmas Eve Gala meant the stay felt relaxing, fun and very Christmassy for the season. There were so many activities to get involved in - we loved snorkelling and enjoying the natural beauty. Despite it being the peak season it never once felt overly busy and the attention to detail by the entire team was second to none. We have an amazing team member called Ali look after us and ensure we had the best stay, and everyone right up to the General Manager Michael went out of their way to ensure a first class experience from day one to departure. The three island resort also means there is plenty to explore and places to visit in the resort for the more adventurous, but equally if you want to just chill in your room by the sea the tranquil environment and beautiful views allow you to enjoy every moment. Can honestly recommend the resort as a must do destination for couples, families or anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and switch for in complete luxury. 20/10.

    This resort is a joy to behold and I pinched myself to make sure a brochure had not sprung to life. However, the colours are even more vibrant. The water even more clear. The vegetation even more lush. Being adults only, we expected a relaxed and mature experience. The service, impeccable. The food, delicious. The cellar, extensive. No less than four restaurants on Veli's own island (including one that serves different menus at lunch and dinner; and one that services different menus at breakfast and dinner) covering European, Japanese, Thai, Indian and Mediterranean (pizza/pasta/tapas) cuisine. Yet, you can also journey a few short minutes float away to a neighbouring (family friendly) island, which features a further three restaurants. Special evening events are held regularly on each island, including beach barbecues, plus seasonal and cuisine themes. The facilities are at an unrivalled level to anything we have experienced before. Not only infinity pools; and air-conditioned gyms on each island, but also an our-door cross-fit rig; a boxing ring (!) and various pursuits from tennis, billliards and badminton courts to boules/pentanque and giant chess boards. Open air cinema nights are a regular, too. I could go on listing the virtues, but the website is the best guide. Speaking of guides, on arrival we were met by Noah who became our personal Spirit Guide (we gave her that moniker), organising every whim, from massages and spa treatments to restaurant bookings, personal training sessions and advice on all the free things to do, including water sports equipment, group yoga sessions etc. All the staff amazed us: a massage with Amr was blissful; training with Broch was highly skilled; the attention to detail our room attendant Rashad took was meticulous; ever-grinning wait staff at all restaurants were delightful including the authentic Thai team and the breakfast squad (a la carte breakfast was the most extensive menu we have ever seen - we had no hope of working our way through the dishes, even if staying for weeks). For all that, the super-comfy king bed in our villa and huge bathroom and terrace were our sanctuary; and just off the terrace, down its steps to swimming in the lagoon were our dawn, noon and dusk highlights. Revelling in dreamily floating over the coral nurseries teaming with tropical fish hatchlings tended by the resort's marine biologist and later transplanted to outer reefs when mature.
