    No amenities but good surprise

    Surprisingly, Anantara did not provide amenities by default in the bathroom! We had to ask for tooth brushes and vanity kits! However, they surprised us with my wife’s birthday with a beautiful setup, sparkling wine and cake.

    Perfect hotel for a family vacation

    Amazing resort with 5 star service and hospitality. Everyone was very friendly and promptly catered to our needs and questions. Food was delicious with multiple restaurants to choose from and both breakfast and dinner buffets had a different theme/cuisine every day. Ocean was warm and calm with beautiful views and sunsets. Huge territory so great for walking and exercising and has a sister island you can also visit for dinners.

    Great resort

    Great resort with many activities, the only issue is the bicycles, I believe they should have couple of bicycles dedicated for each villa.

    Good stay, but I expected more for $1350 a night

    It was a good stay, but for the price paid, I expected a little more. The internet was really bad - could barely check email, especially in the evenings. We had a 9pm flight, but the resort couldn't offer us late checkout. The room they first gave us, had construction noise from next door. They moved us, but after we spent 1 whole day listening to construction noise. Otherwise it was great. The property is beautiful. The service is excellent. Shout out to "Raja Khan" who helped us move our room and taught us cool photography tricks. Also Fayaz at the restaurants was very helpful. Also a special shout out to the resort Doctor, who was very helpful when I complained of fever (he came and checked me, brought all the medicines I needed, and did a follow up on his own). This was our second visit to Anantara Dhigu. It is a beautiful property. We would definitely visit again.

    Paradise Island

    From check in till check out, we were completely amazed. This place was recommended by a friend and I could see why. Friendly and amazing staff. Room was superb. Nice island resort where you can just lay down on the different beaches and enjoy the sun or do any watersport activities of your liking. During low tide, we could even walk to the picnic island. Such a different experience walking on the sand bank. And the food, we really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner buffets at the many restaurants available. Will definitely come again and would recommend this place for couples and families alike.

    Beautiful Resort with Exceptional Service

    From the moment we arrived at the airport, having the airport lounge is very impressive considering it is only among the handful of resorts who has this facility. The resort is very beautiful and all the staff we met were very friendly, from the front desk to the restaurant staff and also all the other staff working tirelessly around the island. The over water villa we stayed in is very spacious and well designed with good space for the outdoor deck and a gorgeous tub in the restroom. Only thing I feel missing is the lack of thriving marine life in and around the water villas as it is build over sandy bed with the nearest reef quite a distance away. Though no fault of the resort, its a tad disappointing for me.
