After nine months of substantial renovations, the Anantara Veli Maldives Resort reopened on December 1, 2022, offering a redesigned adult-only experience nestled amid beautiful lagoon waters.
The Maldivian playground is ready to nestle couples into vacation mode with freshly renovated accommodations, including the launch of beautiful new Beach Pool Villas, a new Villa Host service for all guests, newly refurbished eateries, and a hammam added to the wellness-focused spa.
Anantara Veli Maldives Resort, located on a gorgeous island in the South Malé Atoll and encircled by a crystal-clear lagoon, features an untouched location that prompted New York-based designer Yuji Yamazaki to create a refurbishment concept based on wellness and nature. Yamazaki incorporated an extra layer of isolation to the entire stay experience, from the self-sufficient villa and spa designs to restaurants imbued with modern interpretations of no-walls tropical living, in order to keep visitors at one with the environment and give them a sense of personal seclusion.
The brand-new Beach Pool Villas at the resort have sliding glass doors that open onto a private pool flanked by a cushioned lounger, an outdoor living and dining area, and an island-style bedroom surrounded by tropical flora. They are located right on soft, white sands. Each of the six brand-new Beach Pool Villas, the most prestigious of Anantara Veli's villa types, offers 148 square meters of opulent space, direct beach access, and the finest in solitude.
The resort's over-water villas are a study in tranquil efficiency. Both those with and without pools have had a thorough renovation in a traditional-meets-modern tropical style, utilizing the newest high-tech conveniences as well as a natural colour scheme of wood and stone, cool fabrics, and rattan finishes. Many of these private cocoons have a solitary tub and outdoor rainfall showers, and they are decorated in calm powder tones and organic designs inspired by nature. With the addition of six brand-new Deluxe Over Water Pool Villas, the over-water villa selection at Anantara Veli has been improved. These villas feature improved interiors, a larger private pool and deck, and an overwater hammock from which guests can observe the sparkling waters below by day and the stars at night.
With the reopening of Anantara Veli, a brand-new wellness concept that enables visitors to reserve a customized Wellness Villa experience is also made available. Along with Ayurvedic spa amenities, an earthing mat for meditation, and a wellness minibar filled with herbal teas, nutritious smoothies, and wholefood snacks, the villa is enhanced with light, sound, and aroma therapy that alters the atmosphere from day to night. A wellness consultation, daily yoga or personal training, a healthy cooking class, and a 20% discount on treatments at Balance Wellness by Anantara are all included with every Wellness Villa stay.
Balance Health by Anantara, located in the resort's tropical core, offers multi-day wellness retreats as well as consultations with the local naturopath, nutritionist, personal trainer, yoga instructor, and lifestyle coach. The spa, which is surrounded by nature, offers wellness alternatives that go beyond the typical spa experience, including Ayurvedic and holistic treatments as well as the most recent developments in epigenetics, sound healing, and IV therapies. While the unique skincare line 111Skin of Harley Street, London is used for its face and body therapies, the brand-new Moroccan hammam gives genuine treatments utilizing marocMaroc products. Five treatment suites, a nail salon, a medical spa, a Shirodhara treatment bed, a steam room, a sauna, indoor and outdoor showers, and a relaxation garden with hot and cold plunge pools are all included in Balance Wellness by Anantara.
The greatest cuisines from around the world are served at a variety of eating establishments, and guests can learn about old and new world wines from the resort's Wine Guru. While the tastefully renovated Origami provides contemporary Japanese delicacies including teppanyaki and robatayaki, Cumin offers dishes from Sri Lanka, India, and the Maldives. Mediterranean tapas are the speciality of the poolside Dhoni Bar, which also serves coffee, smoothies, and Champagne during the day and speciality drinks at night.
Baan Huraa, perched over water on the edge of a lagoon and outer reef, delights with fiery northern meals and coconut curries from the southern provinces of Thailand. Sea.Fire. is located on the neighbouring sister island of Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort. While Aqua serves hearty Italian dishes, Salt offers perfectly grilled meats, as well as fresh fish and seafood from the nearby waterways. At Cumin, breakfast is offered à la carte with a view of the ocean and a number of healthy selections. Due to Anantara's renowned Dining by Design experience, which includes a private chef, butler, and sommelier, guests also have the opportunity to eat outside of the restaurants.
Travellers can choose from a variety of land- and water-based activities, whether they're looking for peace or reconnection. Visitors can join the resort in its efforts to preserve habitat by adopting a coral as part of Anantara's sustainability program with the resident marine biologist, catch a wave during the surf season with resident experts Tropicsurf, and enjoy the thrills of underwater exploration with Aquafanatics, the resort's resident watersports partner.
In addition to an outdoor gym, a tennis court, and designated areas for volleyball, badminton, table tennis, chess, and petanque, there is a fully equipped fitness centre on the property. Additionally, visitors can schedule exercise sessions with a personal trainer or test their skills in the brand-new boxing ring. Travellers seeking more sedate activities can sign up for a Spice Spoons cooking class, meditate or do yoga at the pavilion that faces the ocean, or simply relax by the infinity pool.
