Overview

The adult-only Anantara Veli Maldives Resort is set on a secluded island in the Maldives, encircled by white-sand beaches and azure waters. The resort is perfect for romantic holidays as it houses a collection of overwater villas, an infinity-edged pool, a diverse restaurant scene and a full-service spa that specialises in Ayurveda treatments. The surrounding lagoon, perfect for diving and water sports, is shared with the Anantara Dhigu sister hotel; and you can island hop between the two resorts during your stay.

The Anantara Veli Maldives Resort sits on the island of Veligandu Huraa, one of several tropical islands within the Maldives’ South Male Atoll. You can swim and snorkel in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where you might spot native manta rays and whale sharks, or visit the nearby island of Gulhifushi for a supplement charge. It takes 35 minutes to reach the resort from Male International Airport by speedboat.

The 67 thatch-roofed bungalows are decorated in a contemporary Maldivian style with hardwood floors, colourful local artwork and light wood furnishings. They are located directly above the lagoon or along the oceanfront, and all open onto a private terrace. Upgrade to a Deluxe Over Water Pool Bungalow or an Ocean Pool Bungalow for your own private pool and exclusive villa host service.
