Truly magical

melbourne

Our visit to Anantara Veli was our first experience of the Maldives and left us speechless. There are so many amazing things I can say about this resort, from the friendliness of the staff to the array and quality of restaurants. The magic began upon our arrival at Male airport where we were escorted into a comfortable lounge in which we waited for a speed boat. A quick ride in the boat led us to the paradise of Veli, where we were greeted with drums and a picturesque island. Every moment of our stay was seamless and perfect. We came to know many of the staff around the island who always showed a genuine interest in us and ensuring we had our bookings for food and activities in place. The island and accommodation had beautiful design and architecture that felt luxurious and welcoming. The walk to the over water bungalows gave a view to an array of beautiful fish swimming below the planks. Every detail and moment was truly special and we cannot wait to return to Veli soon. A deep thank you to all the staff who made our trip an unforgettable one.
