One can always be lucky to spot the resident nemo, young jackfish and the occasional visitors of stings rays and eagle rays. In choosing an overwater accommodation, look no further as Anantara Veli has it for sure. From the Overwater Bungalows which is ideal for the very active couples; the Deluxe with additional space and privacy, to the brand new Deluxe Overwater Bungalows with Pool and lastly to the more modern Ocean Pool Bungalows for those who prefer to just be on the edge of the breakwater.
Located in South Male Atoll in one of the 3-clustered Anantara properties, the resort is reachable by a 35-minute speedboat ride. Part of a bigger group of islands but still able to be separate and contained on its own, Anantara Veli offers an extensive list of things to do. Three restaurants and one bar is doubled by the access to the facilities of its sister resort, Anantara Dhigu. The island being cocooned within a big lagoon makes it possible to accommodate more activities. From parasailing, canoeing, surfing, snorkelling, diving to different excursions, one would be challenged to choose one over the other. To ensure a completely relaxing stay, the Sundari Spa featuring Ayurvedic treatments is found in a garden setting to inspire inner serenity through a better lifestyle balance. Get introduced to this holistic approach to wellness by chatting with the resident guru and finding out your dosha.
