    • It has a huge green well-planned territory
    • Dine around – you can use restaurant in nearest resorts (ANANTARA VELI/ NALADHU). What is why you feel that territory of resort is so huge. A lot of restaurants/bars of different cuisine for different wishes. Food on breakfast/lunch/dinner (buffet) is very varied
    • A lot of activity (not only water-sports and also tennis court, badminton court, gym, billiard, table tennis, beach volleyball, beach football, yoga etc.)
    • Classical style and modern design rooms. All rooms are very spacious, romantic and private, clean and fresh
    • Kids club. Resort is very good for families!
    • Not well house reef

    – Temizlik, kalite son derece güzel.
    – Oda dizaynı harika, özellikle yüksek tavanlar size huzur veriyor.
    – Yemek yemeniz için bir çok restaurant ve kafe var. Romantik bir akşam yemeğini yıldızların altında lüks bir restaurantta yiyebilirsiniz. Yemeklerin lezzeti ise harikulade.
    – Çocuklar için oyun alanları mevcut. Çocuk sahibi aileler başbaşa doyasıya vakit geçirebilirler.
    – Adayı bisiklet ile gezebilirsiniz. Ayrıca bir çok aktivite var. Su sporları, tenis, plaj voleybolu, plaj futbolu, badminton, gym, bilardo, masa tenisi, yoga vs.
    – Odanızdan çıktıktan sonra on adım ilerde kendinizi kumsalda sahilde buluyorsunuz. Okyanusta yüzürken karşınıza çıkan salıncakta sallanmak ise en büyük keyiflerden biri.

    Добирались на яхте Nirvana быстро, красиво, с комфортом! Жили на водных виллах – они замечательные по дизайну и оснащению, терраса и ванная комната вообще вне всяких похвал, единственное смущал вид на какой то местный остров. По сравнению с водными виллами береговые по ощущению проще и не хватает им света. Территория слегка запущена и не ухожена – рваные тенты и устаревшая мебель расстраивают, но прекрасные пляжи, гостеприимство, сервис и изобилие возможностей на 3х островах сглаживают этот недостаток и хочется снова туда вернуться. Правда считаю, что стоимость завышена и отель нуждается в реновации.

  15. Kate / July 11, 2022

    Anantara dhigu is a high standard hotel, you feel it as soon as you get on their boat and drive off towards the island. wifi on the boat, water in branded glass bottles, of course refreshing towels and this boat is really fast)) upon arrival you are met by the hotel team including the villa host, who conducts a short tour of the hotel, by room and stays in touch to resolve any issues.
    the rooms are spacious and very elegantly decorated, with a private area. Very green and beautiful island, bicycles Electra for each villa which look so cool)
    Of the Shortcomings – you can see the neighboring islands, including the staff area, which may not please those who come for a picture with an endless horizon. but from the side of the sunset this is better.

    Anantara Dhigu is a small resort close to Male, only 15 min by speedboat. Rooms made in a eco style with woods and natural colors. The hotel has a very beautiful SPA, good kids club. Food is a high quality, there re a lot of different corners for each nationalities during the breakfast and dinner time. There are 2 resorts closed by the Anantara Dhigu which guests can visit for a dinner time: Naladhu and Anantara Veli. In case the hotel is closed to Male please be ready that the view will be to Male side.
