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.
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.
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.

our travellers' journeys
Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
