The Short & Sweet

  • Who. The sea loving couple who love their space and privacy, and groups of friends who want the perfect island getaway experience.

  • What. Set within the palm fringed island and pristine coral reefs of the South Male Atoll, 67 over-water and ocean pool bungalows make up a charming tropical setting with unmatched views of the expansive lagoon. Ensuring you have all the comforts of a home away from home, bungalows offer King-sized beds, indigenous fabrics, hardwood floors and a coconut thatch roof combined with stylish contemporary décor, as well as sun loungers at your private plunge pool and deck as you admire the rolling waves in a tranquil world of your own. Five casual dining options from Thai to Japanese cuisine are available to tantalise your taste buds. Nestled in lush gardens, be blissfully pampered at the serene spa retreat in Anantara where you can enjoy soothing treatments for the body and soul.

  • Why. Staying in an over-water bungalow allows you to make the ocean your private pool! We also love the beachside yoga classes and private cooking lessons!


  • The resort is 21km and a 35-minute speedboat ride from the Malé Airport.

  • Cooking classes with the resident master chef or other excursions can be arranged at an additional charge.

  • In their commitment to protect the environment, Anantara Veli in collaboration with Aquafanatics, have initiated the Coral Adoption Programme, a long-term plan designed to share learning experiences with guests, accelerate the regeneration of coral growth in the atoll reef and ultimately ensure the future of this unique Maldivian destination.

  • Additional dining options are available at sister resort Anantara Dhigu, just a short boat-ride away.
