I traveled alone to Male to go diving in a detour from my business trip to China and Sri Lanka. As a female solo traveler, my main concern was safety. The Anantara caters mostly to couples (families tend to stay at their sister resort Dighu). The staff knew that I was alone and they went out of their way to make me feel safe and welcomed. I absolutely LOVED my experience at the Anantara. The Maldivians are a lovely group of people, warm and grounded. The resort is gorgeous and the diving was amazing. The sealife is diversed and abundant. Being a seasoned diver I rank the Maldives in my top 3 favorite diving spots. The dive staff is very professional and knowledgeable. They group divers based on experience level. The boat was never croweded and most of my dives were alone with my dive master which I utterly enjoyed. The hotel is very peaceful. The perfect place to get away from EVERYTHING and enjoy the beauty of this natural wonder. Even though it was full, I hardly saw people and there was plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing without feeling crowded. If you are looking for nighlife and excitement, neither Anantara nor Male are the place for you. The food is delicious and yes... expensive. But if you are flying all the way there, the last thing to think about is how much things cost. My experience was unforgettable and if I ever get the chance I will go back in a minute. It is paradise!
