The popular Anantara Veli Resort, located in the beautiful island nation of the Maldives, is saying hello to a new program that gives those with a passion for the Maldives a reason to visit over and over again in a year's time. Their new yearly pass includes unlimited access to an overwater villa and the rest of the resort for a full year. Though the package itself isn't cheap at $30,000 US dollars, if you are planning on visiting the Maldives a few times next year, you could save a nice chunk of change by going this route.

This package includes use of a two person overwater villa as well as various discounts and add-ons that include scuba diving, snorkeling, cooking lessons and treatments at the resort's spa.

Overwater villa features and amenties

The villas at this resort are impressive at every turn, with luxuries including 24 hour room service, a minibar, a private deck with a daybed, an entertainment center, and more. All of these amenities can be found at each and every one of the resort’s 50 overwater villas, all of which offer guests beautiful views of the ocean.


You’ll also find yourself privy to a few extras here and there in each room. These range from a sofa, a minibar, and an espresso machine alongside a coffee and tea making station. Because of what each overwater villa offers, you’ll find it hard to leave the privacy and comfort of this ocean oasis.

Features found around the resort

As you look through pictures of the resort, you’ll find that there’s a lot going on, but in a very good way. You won’t find yourself overwhelmed here, but you will find yourself amazed by the options granted during your island stay, both on the island itself and offshore. Ocean activities here include a sunset landline fishing excursion, a sunset cruise, scuba diving, snorkeling, and surfing. You’ll also find speedboats and jet skis available for a fun afternoon filled with a little speed.


Back on land you’ll find a spa that offers a large variety of treatments and massages, a boutique for a little shopping, a library, morning meditation sessions, a fitness area with weights and machines, yoga, tennis, volleyball, badminton, and a cooking school where you’ll learn how to make local dishes. There are also several restaurants and bars to choose from right on-site, but if you rather eat and drink in the comfort of your private villa, remember, you’ll find 24 hour room service here.

  1. Hello Roger,
    We are a family of four with kids aged 8 and 5.
    We are planning our trip in the last week of August.
    How’s the climate during this period and how many days it is advisable stay?
    I would like to know about some good kid friendly and all inclusive resorts with good deals.

    1. Madhu,

      The weather in the Maldives is almost the same all year round, although there are actual variations from island to island because these resorts stretch several thousand kilometers from north to south. My advice is to choose a resort that you might like and then check the reviews from that same month last year and the year before to see what previous guests said about the weather. In most cases guests don’t mention the weather because it’s warm every day and the rain storms tend to last only 20 minutes or less. From late May through early July the rain can last for hours in certain parts of the Maldives, but in August the storms will be over quickly and sometimes they happen overnight.

      Here are our favorite Maldives resorts for families with great activities for kids (and adults).

      Our favorite all-inclusive resorts for great rates is Meeru Island, and it’s pretty good for families, though not the best.

      Aside from that one it’s hard to know which is the best deal because most resorts tend to offer great deals when they are a bit slow, and keep prices high when they are booked up more. It’s best to just go into and put in your travel dates to see which resorts are offering the best all-inclusive deals for that period. Have a great trip. -Roger
