A great hotel conveniently located. 35 min speed boat is not far at all. We stayed at Anantara Veli, only adults, so very quiet. Great view and great amenities. Food is reasonably good except a bit pricy. The best part is that there are plenty of activities to do while on the island (and the connecting island 5 min away). Snorkeling and kayaking are free. Diving, dolphin watches, jet ski, parachuting, spa... all avail for a price somewhere between ~$55 to $200 / person. Still a bit pricy if you add 23.2% service fee and tax on every item, but worth it if you are a water sport fan. Hotel room is quite big and comfortable (we stayed at Over Water Bungalow), very spacious for two. Bedding is soft and comfy, room cleanness however could be a bit better. Our bath tub didn't seem to be completely cleaned, but overall, a very pleasant hotel.
