About Anantara Veli Maldives Resort, Veligandu

Romantic 5-star hotel on Maldives island with dive center

35 minutes from Malé

Anantara Veli Maldives Resort is a 35-minute speed-boat ride from the airport in Malé, capital of the Maldives archipelago in the Indian Ocean. The secluded island resort features a calm lagoon great for swimming and kayaking.

Sunset cruises

You can arrange a trip to Malé to shop at local markets and learn about the history of the Maldives at the National Museum. If you want to take to the sea, you can try your hand at fishing or set off on a sunset cruise.

Dive center and spa

The clear waters are perfect for snorkeling, and the resort's dive center runs scuba and surf lessons and diving safaris. You can unwind even more with a trip to the spa, a dip in the infinity pool, and drinks and dining at any of the resort's 3 restaurants.

Bungalows with a terrace

You can lounge on your private terrace overlooking the lagoon or the ocean with a snack from the minibar, or enjoy your room's WiFi and flat-screen TVs with DVD players. Some of the bungalows are over the water and include their own private plunge pools.
