What I liked:

Simply one of our best holidays! Stayed here 6 nights. We have 2 young kids. Stayed in the beach villa. Probably the best chill-out infinity pool, excellent spa facilities (ask for Aree) and fantastic water sports. We were provided free snorkeling gear for the duration of our stay, and we kayaked to a nearby island 2 days in a row! We were blessed with lots of spinner dolphins dancing around our boat during our dolphin watching trip, we caught 10 small fishes during our sunset fishing (but good enough for a full meal the hotel chef prepared) and we caught 6 Wahoo fishes in our game fishing the following day (ask for Captain Muhamed Ibrahim...he is the best!). Muhamed, Akhil and Shameen (and in fact the whole bar crew there) at the Aqua Bar made our pool-side experience very personable and memorable. Beatrice, Margarida and Amy at the reception were informative and helpful. Breakfast crew were always delightful. We applaud the management team for its good training and leaving its staff with discretion to treat each guest with that "special attention"! Oh yes, the sunset is the most beautiful we've seen! We travel a lot (3 to 4 times a year as a family, 20x for me personally for work), and so we are quite discerning, and I rarely write reviews, but we are very pleased with Anantara and we want to recognize the staff for a job well done! Also, we know there are lots of team members whom don't get recognized, like the team in housekeeping, gardening, maintenance, kitchen, etc. We fully appreciate the well-orchestrated effort. God bless!

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

The very concept of a Maldives resort is one that’s hard to get wrong; the trick, one supposes, is getting hold of one of these shallow, sandy atoll islands, and after that, the rest is just details. After all, once you’re in your villa, on a pristine white sand beach, or in one of the suites on stilts over the water, it’s the setting that matters most.

So it’s on the execution, the details, that Anantara should be judged. Little things, like the style of the place, grass-roofed on the outside and unpretentious on the inside — spare, clean-lined, but not overly serious or reverent.

Anantara’s approach to luxury, too, is unassuming. This place certainly doesn’t lack for comforts, but nor does it bludgeon you with ostentation the way some of its peers do. Service, likewise, is faultless, but not showy — it would be unfair and a little weird to speculate about whether this has anything to do with Anantara’s Thai ownership and culture, but whatever the reason, friendly hospitality is in plentiful supply.

A largish handful of restaurants comes in handy, since you can’t exactly pop off to town for a bite, and the cooking school is an option if you’d like to take this part of the experience home. Aside from the always-popular option of total idleness, there’s actually plenty to do: the spa, the fitness center, the library, yoga, even a lighted tennis court, not to mention all manner of water sports — again, diving in the Maldives would be difficult to find fault with.

How to get there:

Anantara Dhigu Resort & Spa is a 35 minute ride by private speedboat from Malé International Airport. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
