Anantara Veli Maldives Resort

Anantara Veli Maldives Resort

Anantara Veli Maldives Resort is an adult-only island paradise, perfect for couples and groups of friends who are looking for a relaxing hideaway in stylish luxury. Surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, the resort is located on the South Malé Atoll and is just over half an hour’s journey from Velana International Airport.

Over-water wonder

Accommodation is in intimate over-water bungalows, with hardwood floors, coconut-thatched roofs and stunning views of the ocean. Each of the spacious bungalows features stylish furniture, sun decks and a range of luxury amenities, not to mention easy access to the beach. For the ultimate indulgence, you can opt for a Superior Deluxe Over Water Pool Bungalow with its own private plunge pool.

World-class cuisine

The eating venues at Anantara Veli offer a variety of international cuisine. Baan Hura serves a range of delicious Thai dishes and brings together fresh fish, herbs, and spices, while Origami offers modern Japanese food, including hand-crafted sushi and sashimi. Freshly-caught fish and imported meats are grilled to perfection.

A breakfast buffet can be enjoyed in the light and airy pavilion in 73 Degrees, which also becomes an oceanfront restaurant on selected evenings. For island-style cocktails and light bites, take a 1-minute pontoon ride to sister resort Anantara Dhigu and visit Dhoni by the pool or *Fushi Café, which overlooks the lagoon and offers breakfast and themed dinners.

Private dining experiences are also available on the beach or in your bungalow if you prefer.

Relaxation and activities

Don’t miss the chance to visit Balance Wellness by Anantara , a wellness retreat that provides a range of health and beauty treatments, including traditional Ayurvedic-inspired healing. Although there are plenty of opportunities to relax, a range of activities are also available. Watersports include water skiing, windsurfing, fly boarding and paddle boarding. The clear seas are ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving, or you can charter a boat to explore the island. Anantara Veli Maldives Resort is the perfect place for a laid-back beach holiday, so why not get in touch to book your stay today?
