Adults-only resort with a wave within paddling distance of the resort!

Anantara Veli is an amazing adults-only resort, located in the South Male Atoll. This resort is perfect for couples and solo travelers that are looking for peace, tranquility, and great waves! The resort is unique in that all the accommodation options that it offers are overwater, giving a spectacular luxury surfing experience.

The resort has access to a fun lefthander that breaks across the house reef and with a wide range of sumptuous dining options, a fully stocked overwater spa, an expert on-site surf team, Anantara Veli has all of the ingredients for an incredible luxury escape for any surfer!

The Resort

Anantara Veli is everything that you would expect from a high-end luxury resort. Backed by the world-renowned Anantara brand, Anantara Veli offers beautifully designed overwater accommodation, amazing dining experiences and a wealth of activities to be enjoyed.

The resort comprises 67 over-water and ocean bungalows, all with beautiful views over the Indian ocean. Situated just 30 minutes by speedboat from Velana International Airport, there are no long transfers to worry about upon arrival! The resort offers a range of couples’ spa journeys, open-air cinema, private dining, and access to facilities at their sister resort, Anantara Dhigu.

Waves at Anantara Veli

Anantara Veli offers you access to all of the great waves in the South Male Atoll. South Male is generally quieter than its neighbour, North Male. This makes it great for those seeking to escape the crowds and enjoy quieter surfs.

The resort has a left-hand reef breaking on its house reef. You can reach this without boat access and is free to surf as much as you want. With the help of the expert onsite guiding, you can also surf Riptides (a fun intermediate friendly right), Foxies (a great righthander that offers barrels in the right conditions), Quarters (another good quality right), and others in the area!

Generally receiving smaller surf than North Male, Anantara Veli is great for all levels, with those looking for the biggest swells to travel May – September!

Why We Love Anantara Veli

Surf a quieter region in the Maldives. South Male escapes a lot of the crowds that surf in the North Male Atoll.

Being an adults exclusive resort is great for couples looking for a more private and romantic experience!

The overwater bungalows as standard! The level of accommodation across the resort is really high.

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
