Anantara Veli Maldives

Perched above impossibly turquoise waters, the 5-star Anantara Veli Maldives is an adults-only playground that has to be seen to be believed. Thatched bungalows teeter over the lagoon or the white-sand beach and offer all the creature comforts one would need for a luxurious stay in the Indian Ocean. Wake up with morning yoga classes overlooking the lagoon, spend lazy days beside the infinity pool (cocktail in hand) or try your luck with a new water sport – the resort boasts its own surf school, water sports and dive centre. In the evenings, there is no better way to wind down than with an open-air movie night under the stars. Sheer bliss awaits…
